    replied to Using the Proper Pronoun
    And here I am all these years struggling to get the right sir/ma'am usage on phone calls based on voices... I've put my foot in my mouth a few times over the years. Worst was trying to be jokingly with a customer who was renting and seeing he was a xmas baby, I asked if his mom combined his bday with...

    replied to Cash Control At Your Facility
    Yup, have had numerous sites where that happens. Some area's are more cash heavy customer bases. Or they don't do bank runs every day. I was sent cross country to get some help to some sites in FL years ago. First thing I did was ask what can I do to help out the staff, they asked me to do a bank run...

    replied to The Job Hunt
    Something i've come to realize that I count as a red flag when I interview people is the ones who come in for interviews and with only a few months of any storage experience try telling me they have learned everything in storage and know it all. Just makes me want to start going into 20 questions mode...

    replied to Do you ever lower the rent? What are some reasons why?
    I look at it like gas prices, prices fluctuate regularly based on supply and demand. Peak season or going into college move in season? Prices are going to be higher. Slow season and need to drive some rentals? Find what you have multiples of available and do some lowering. In truly competitive areas...

    replied to How I Got Into Storage
    Knew people who owned a small lot in Houston from when I was a bingo caller and always thought it sounded interesting. Wife and I knew it was something that sounding intriguing so I started off by answering a craigslist ad for an asst manager. For our first year of marriage my wife was an in home care...

  • You'd be surprised how many owners are truly unaware of what goes on. I used to do take overs for my first company, including hostile takeovers. I can't tell you how many times we've found managers who would hang out in their residence all day with a door chime set to alert them if someone came in to...

  • Interesting... I was picturing them on top of a fence line as a beam in case someone went over the wall, not based inside like your picture shows. I could see these being useful with on site managers who actually pay attention and care....

  • I'm curious as well if anyone has used these with success? We have a property in Vegas and the owner and me discussed the possibility of trying these at some point as we were having people jumping the walls at night. It's pretty long wall length though so we were concerned with enough power to keep...

    replied to Dorian
    Hopefully it misses or dies out as it comes ashore. We lived in FL for 2 years a few years back 1 mile from the coast in Delray Beach and I remember everytime one was pathed towards us all the sites would want to board up and evacuate. I guess growing up in Houston and going through some big ones it's...

  • lol I get so tempted to make a post on their forums to offer my sitelink expertise and even offer to remote in to fix peoples sitelinks issues for a nice tech support hourly rate with a 2 hour minimum. I think the mods on the sitelink forum may not take too kindly to me making that type of post though....

    replied to Incarcerated Tenant
    Unfortunately only one of our phones has a caller ID screen. My wife answered the line at her station and after she was done talking to the customer she told me what the customer was telling her and I pointed out the name I saw populate on the caller ID when it rang so it was realized after the fac...

    replied to Dont meth with me!
    Well thank you for bringing up memories AngelaESSTX ! lol.. Had a lady back in Florida in broad daylight pop a squat in the middle of an aisle and unload. To give her *some* credit on camera she did try going to the outside bathroom but someone was in it, on the way back to her unit I guess she couldn't...

    replied to Incarcerated Tenant
    We had a fun one just the other day. We havn't heard from a tenant in a awhile, going thru the lien process for next months auction and her alternate contacts us the other day. Says she's been in and out of the hospital but he'll try to get ahold of her for us. Then 2 days ago our caller ID SHOWS her...

    replied to Help with an issue....
    You can do it without vacating by doing a triangle of transfers. Find a random empty unit, transfer tenant A to that unit, transfer tenant B to the correct unit then transfer tenant A to the correct unit. That's if you don't want to do a vacate and have any funds get lost if you aren't able to do credits/adjustments...

    replied to She says "I have an infestation !"
    Something I see at some sites depending on the construction in multiple states now is if you see what looks like white powder on the ground in units it's due to moisture seeping up through the concrete as it was not sealed properly and as it dries it leaves that white residue. I've seen boxes ontop...

    started a topic Sign Vendor

    Sign Vendor

    Apologies if this has been addressed before but I couldn't find any posts regarding it when searching.

    Does anyone have recommendations for a good sign vendor? I'm talking signs for gates/fences that display hours/various info in a material that will last in heat. Fixing to redo all of...

    replied to Another Bezel lock complaint thread
    Just curious as to what instructions are being used to drill the locks out that takes so long? I remember a site I oversaw in Orlando calling me and complaining about how it took 40mins to drill out one of these locks. On my next trip there we took a brand new lock out, put it in a unit and with just...

    replied to Had to reach for the Mace today.......
    Well since it seems we hijacked this topic for other discussions..... I love my mossberg 500, wife loves it even more and has pink shells to use it in it. My .357 is fun to shoot at the range but as far as what I keep handy it would be my beretta px4 storm 9mm....

  • Since no database is needed I would think there SHOULD be some company out there who could handle this since all it is would be answering phones and pretty much using common sense on what should be directed to you versus what should be told a message can be sent for them to follow up with you when the...
