  • We have open top units too, havent had an issue other than the occasional leak from the water pipes from the above businesses and fire sprinkler systems. Be sure to take the sides of the units as high as you can go though to avoid looky lou's and possible security issues.

  • We only reserve a unit if we have more than 3 available in the same size, otherwise we say the same thing PAC says. NO holds on high demand units!...

    replied to Lien Letter question
    We send the notice out the date the states dictated time frame has passed- for example, late fees are added on the 6th day late, a letter goes out the same day. We can send the letter out early if we wanted to, but for example,if we send the letter out on the 4th, and then they pay on the 5th, we cant...

    But I cant afford the unit now!

    I love it when tenants call to complain that their rent increased and we " Didn't give them any notice! Isn't that illegal? I mean, don't you have to give me like 30 days notice or something?....." All the while I'm looking at their account and having to re assure them we did not raise their...

    replied to I can only do so much
    The apartment complex I used to manage had an arrangement with the local PAWS outreach, they would bring feral cats and let them loose on site and pick them up a week or two later. Mouse problems went way down after that. It s a natural way to handle the problem, the only issue I could see is someone...

  • This is the time of year when we really start to fill up fast! I tell callers to reserve it now, otherwise I cannot guarantee it will be here when you come.We can always transfer a reservation to a different unit if the sizing is off for some reason- but I cant rent a unit I dont have. Most of them...

  • I have a question about these shipping containers, are they climate controlled at all? I ask because a friend of mine built a storage container home and its beautiful but there is a moisture issue that causes mold in her sheet rock. Wondering if moisture or condensation inside these would cause mold...

    You'll have lots of experience to draw from with this crowd. So you have no self storage experience? I guess my first piece of advice would be to familiarize yourself with your state laws regarding lien timelines and notices. Also using a storage specific lease will help you to enforce the rules you...

    YAY! I bet you are feeling totally relieved. I'm so glad they were busted. Maybe this will show the other would be's out there your on top of it and they will think twice!

    replied to Replaced after 25 years
    Wow, so sorry that happened to you. Honestly, that is always a concern at the back of my mind too. My husband works for a couple who are in their late 70's, and their kids have no interest in the property either. Ive always told my husband we need to be ready in case the poop ever hits the fan like...

    Don't get me started on those "emotional support animals" As I have mentioned before I use to manage tax credit property. Every. Single. Tenant. there had an "emotional support dog". I believe its just a way to get around the no pets policy. They also didn't have to pay...

    Im not allowed to have any weapons either on my person or in my car at work That being said, there are times when I felt I could have used some extra security to avoid a hostile tenant or the number of homeless people wondering in to "use the bathroom". Something like a magnetic panic...

    Well, if you had more time-you could offer the option of pay half and vacate immediately. Have them sign a form that says If they fail to vacate within the agreed upon time frame the stuff becomes property of your facility and you can do what you want with it.However with 17 minutes to go I would say...

    I wouldnt be surprised if her friends showed up. Honestly she has been a good tenant and keeps to herself. Its always the quiet ones! Im surprised the cops havent shown up with a warrant for her unit though. We will see how this develops.

    Well that was exciting!

    Just got off the phone with the Sherriffs office. Turns out they arrested a female bank robber yesterday. What a coincidence that bank video footage showed her driving off in a white vehicle , wearing a hoodie, beanie and sunglassess. Then is seen our our camera footage arriving the next day driving...

    We have 4 reviews on there, with a 4 star rating. 4 reviews in 20+ years of business is a little strange to me. Especially when I have several customers telling me they left a good review recently! ...
