  • spidey senses, gotta love them... in our area anytime someone inquires about "smallest unit" and "access hours" we are on guard.. I had one the other day who wanted the smallest then asked if we accept checks after refusing to say what she's storing other than "boxes"....

    replied to Cleaning Hacks
    I won't blow unless I absolutely have to. I prefer broom and dustpan. As far a "hacks", I'll get the extension cords out and a shopvac on the roofs when its time to clean gutters of leafs, dusting doors are super quick if you get a California king duster from wally world in the auto section....

  • Make a list, prioritize, tighten up your belt and get to it. Cleaning is cleaning... broom, dustpan, rolling trashcan and just do a section at a time if you're the only one working there so you don't leave the office closed nonstop. If they have another location anywhere nearby with some staff ask if...

  • Winsen Sentinel / Sitelink - Gate issue

    Has anyone who uses Winsen sentinel gate software suddenly had it start requiring people to type their code twice to make the gate open? Ours started doing it out of nowhere, I thought maybe it got reset on themotor outside and retrained itself to think it was in the opposite state but i've reset it...

  • Want worse? Try budget trucks.. it isn't even something "new" for them to be out and overbook as it was the same in FL in 2014 as it is here in CA now. We cancel more reservations than we rent due to lack of trucks. One of our sites is a heavy hitter for them, im talking single weeks of 20k...

    replied to Issues with PTI
    Not to answer your actual question but maybe offer assistance... What is the issue they are having with the PTI system? I've fixed quite a few problems myself over the years with PTI as it's my preferred system.

    Thanks for the replies. The facility is in the Salem area they are considering so thankfully not in Portland.

    Covid guidelines

    Afternoon all,

    Our company is considering buying a property in Oregon and while I found some info via the state association page it only refers to a recent bill as "may" effect operators. Anyone who operates in the state mind a quick summary of the do's/don'ts currently? The...

    Upper management with no backbone, they're more worried about bad reviews then standing behind their employees and doing what's right.. Saw that a lot at the big company I was with for 4 years.

  • Do what's required by law, going overboard is time wasted IMO. Spending excess time trying to reach someone when you could be out marketing, working on grounds or dealing with actual paying customers is such a waste....

    replied to Difficult Co-Workers
    Same as MusicCity Gal , When I oversaw 20 sites I was the guy that "Wanted" everyone to like me as the prior higher up everyone made comments about how they were "Scared of him / hated when he'd show up". I didn't want that same reputation, for the most part it never had it's issues...

    You only need it on one computer. Just make sure sitelink is running on the same PC as PTI and it should update your gate software as that sitelink updates it's database. Also make sure you have "update gate for remote transactions" in your gate setup.

  • I had to cover one of our other sites yesterday, 2 units side by side happened to be moving out at the same time and both 10x10's had rat feces everywhere you looked. Took one fresh dead one out of the older ladies unit which had gotten in to a tote of xmas decorations and the other unit had 2 live...

    replied to Bizarre Phone Call
    Oh just wait until you get in an area that markets all types of different "terms".... In our Vegas market looking at competitors we have climate controlled / air cooled / humidity controlled / in door *the insides with no hvac aspects* / drive up. Imagine that customer trying to find a unit...
