    Thats both funny and sad! You don't have any help at all? No relief managers or vendors occasionally? Ive worked at places like that, its not easy and you have my respect for that!...

    I'll have to admit I had to look up the term work culture to figure out exactly what you meant.
    Using the descriptive words provided on Google example, in 5 words or less I would say we can be described as:
    Friendly
    Engaging
    Collaborative
    Inclusive
    Motivating
    ...

    replied to Strangest Animal or Insect Spotted
    I shared this story once before, I rounded a corner late at night in response to door alarm going off. The intruder ( or so I thought) was rounding the same corner at the same time as me, trying to get away. I stopped just inches from bumping into him. I was so startled I screamed and then he screamed,...

    We could use some improvements. I frequently find incorrect information on our website bc the person in charge of updating all 23 stores isn't always on top of things.

    replied to 2020 Summer Rentals
    Oddly enough our rentals are up 12 over last year for this month, but our income is about $3500 less, I chalk it up to recently lowered prices and smaller units being rented instead of the more expensive bigger units.

    replied to Meth-Lab Fire
    Yikes! Ive suspected a few tenants of doing meth but never suspected a meth lab. I'm Curious- was there an onsite manager? Did they notice a lot of traffic to that unit? Glad no one else was on site, could have been much worse!

    According to the Dept of Justice website here are the signs...

  • I wish! Ours has been overdue for a makeover for a decade now...... Still clean, still functional but definitely dated.

    replied to Office Status
    Yes, but the door is locked to control flow of people. Only one at a time, ( or if they arrived together in same car they can both be in office.)Masks are mandatory in WA state now for both employees and customers.

    replied to COVID-19 Infections Rising
    They are up because we are doing more testing. I think its been here for many months but because we were only testing those with symptoms the numbers stayed low until we started doing mass testing. The good news is that the death rates remain lower than they were at the beginning, so survival rate is...

    replied to Lock Requirement
    We provide a free disc lock with their Admin Fee of $25. We strongly encourage the use of this lock, and of they purchase the storage insurance through our 3rd party company one of the questions on the form is: "Was a disc lock used?" We have a few dozen out of 605 that refuse to put the disc...

  • Seriously! I think they just play dumb because they get caught. Last year I had a customer moving in restaurant equipment from his business that closed. I told him he had to clean every piece, no grease or food particles on or in any of the equipment. He said, oh no, no everything is tip top shape,...

    replied to Refunds
    I would refund it minus the Admin fee. However, I have had an increase in people paying for months ahead of time, say 6 months. Then they come back in 4 months and say Oh gosh I don't need the unit anymore I want a refund. In the lease, on the addendum, and posted in the office it clearly states NO...

  • Oh geez. Good luck with that! This is why insurance companies are starting to ask for itemized lists and photographic evidence of the contents of units in question. I would ask if they were the only ones with access? Did they give a key or door code to a friend at any time? 7 years is a long time to...

  • Exactly! I asked them about that and they said they were definitely retraining that relief manager to A.) Not allowing any lock cuts if staff is not present, and B.) escorting them to the correct unit and only staff can cut lock not the tenant or anyone representing the tenant.And,while they do lock...

  • One of the local facilities near us just had an incident where someone moved out, and hired a local moving company to move their stuff because they were already out of state. The relief manager reviewed the paperwork,made sure the lock cut authorization paperwork was in order, verified the unit number...

    replied to Masks at Work
    Our governor recently made it mandatory to wear masks everywhere with the exception of health issues, small children and if you could maintain 6ft distance. I had a issue wearing one while giving a tour, I lost my balance and had to reach out to steady myself against the wall. I felt dizzy and my heart...

    DairyGirl,

    This week I had a guy drive from Florida to Washington. On his way here, he called to reserve a unit. I did the same thing, asked what he is storing and he says, Oh no,he says- I just need a 5x10, that's what I had in Florida so I know that is the size I need. I ask if he can...
