    My father didn't talk about his vietnam days, all I know is he was a gunner in heli's and per my mother telling me stories as a kid he had 2 guns when most had one.. *shrug*... As far as my brother i'm not sure what his role was on the ship, it was late 90's early 2000's timeframe and I recall he went...

    Yeah, navy for quite awhile. Kittyhawk is the only ship I can recall the name of but I know he said he was on a sub also at one time....

  • I've always been surprised that truck rental places don't have requirements for renting the big equipment like that. Rented out a 26' budget diesel with liftgate to an 18y/o guy the other day. Brand new truck, first rental of it, was truly shocked it came back with no damage....

  • He ran??? Omg lol, like he wasn't in enough trouble already, now he ads leaving the scene of an accident... That leads me to think he WAS on something as now it'll be harder to prove his "condition" while it happened.

    Well as my brother used to tell me when I'd mess with him about asking for military discounts at every single place, even at a fast food drive thru "you never know, and it doesn't hurt to ask" and he would get a lot of discounts most people wouldn't know were even offered because of it. So...

  • Yeah I saw it was in Dallas based on the FB posters info.. I am curious as to how all that noise was taking place and no one showed up sooner from the staff though unless that property is a massive size. Since you know the place do you have any updates or other links about it? I can't stop wondering...

  • Holy hell... I havn't watched with audio yet so maybe it's said in the video who the person recording it is but WHERE is the manager or staff of the facility?!? If you have a facility with tight aisles you should have a sign up stating the max size allowed for trucks. The last site I ran with tight...

    100% full, my answer would be time to raise some rents and he can now pay even more for his favorite spot or pull on out and you can rent it to someone that wont be a headache for you.

    Using current trends for marketing

    Anyone else like to tie in current trends with their online ads? Been seeing a lot about this "area 51 raid" joke that's been going on so figured we would have some fun with it.

  • I'm still new to the aspect of having to deal with the issues personalty as anywhere else in the country i've been for storage it has not been to this level. Since taking over this one here in Stockton last month i've already ran 3 people off from the tree's along our outer perimeter. Had a landscaper...

    replied to Another review question
    I go by google reviews when I want to check a place out. Anyone with typical common sense can tell the reviews that matter versus the "fluff". I laugh when I look up my old companies sites to see how my former stores were doing and half or more of the reviews are from names I knew as workers...

  • Amazing how many tents I see as I drive up and down the roads and highways here in Stockton area. The owner was showing me a shot of it down in LA where they are moving on from tents to building their own plywood tiny homes it looked like on the sidewalks. How government does nothing is beyond me....

    replied to Hallway cleaning
    For basic cleaning, a wide dust mop up and down halls and collect it all in one section to broom/dustpan it. I have the manual push sweepers that have the spinning brushes but i've found those more useful for issues such as broken glass or other items instead of general use. I did the leaf blower long...

    lol i'm an auction junkie. My last site was right down the road from an online auction house. Few months ago I won 25 boxes of Dove chocolate rounds with caramel in them for $5 a box. 118 pieces to a box, 2,800 total. Our customers got very spoiled as we were using them for customers, marketing, giving...

    I try to keep a decent variety in ours so all age groups have something. Sour for the kids, mints for the older and lifesavers/taffy for all. I got tired of the tootsie rolls/lollipops as I got tired of cleaning them up from the aisles. The fun one for me is watching people grab the smarties and pop...

    replied to A few minutes??
    24 hour is pretty much a no go. I have had some cases at sites where we would have exceptions. The biggest ones I can think of off the top of my head was at my first site, we had a limousine company that had about 8 units with us where they stored the limo's so they had it since runs usually went late,...

    replied to New Lease
    IMO a listing of everything stored is a liability in the sense that customers are already worried about "inside jobs" for thefts of storage units as unfortunately that is something that takes place in this industry. By them having to disclose everything in the unit in my mind that creates...

    replied to Exciting auction! Needed 3 bodies
    If they insist on sticking to live auctions you need to build that audience up it sounds like. Join local facebook groups, advertise it, let local mom and pop thrift store type places know about it, make sure flyers are up in office well ahead of time as usually a few tenants will show if they know...

    replied to New Lease
    Owners been having issues lately perhaps at sites? I just remade the leases for our 7 sites, I crammed as much as I could in as the owners had numerous requests for items to be pointed out in the lease other than the standard items. I managed to get it to 4 pages for the lease and 1 page for the rules...

  • As everyone else has said, take the move out and move on. If there was no lock on the unit this entire time it should have been moved out before ever getting to past due....
