    @i43storage I'm afraid it's not that interesting, lol. We had to do repairs on a building wall after contractors put a hole in it. Most of the tenants didn't respond to any of the notifications we sent them.

    50.  The fire marshal insisted on inspecting the heat sensors in every unit.  She stopped at 50 when she realized they were all in good working condition and properly installed!

    The fire marshal would have needed to get a search warrant for each unit in our state.

    About 10 years the local police were searching for a suspected suicide or suicidal person.  All they knew was a self storage facility in my area.  There are about 5 but they started with mine.  The officer actually wanted to cut locks to look for the person.  I scratched my head and said wouldn't that be murder instead of suicide.  Ended up having to get a supervisor & chief involved because he didn't believe me and thought we would just cut off all the locks for him.

    Can't recall how many we cut but it was a lot. We had a fire in one of our climate controlled buildings that has 136 units in it. Not all were occupied but a lot of them were. Luckily we didn't have to cut all of them because some came by in person. Of course, we notified our tenants and got permission before we just started cutting locks.

    October of 2016 (Before I was here) they had over 100! Technically it wasn't the locks though. They cut the latch going into the building.

    @BAAAAStorage I feel like there's a story there...What happened, did someone try to lock the building or something?
  • BAAAAStorageBAAAAStorage IARegistered User
    @JamesStorage It happened right after a change or management. Before we had cameras too. We are an outdoor facility with about 750 units (non-gated). I'm thinking it was the fired property manager trying to cost the owner some money and make him look bad. I am bad at explaining things but some of the latches hadn't even fallen to the ground until they were investigating after figuring things out. Like someone didn't even open them, just started cutting one after another. So it was either the bitter previous manager or the person cutting went in way over their head then got spooked.

    I am assuming this is for auction?  My husband had a record of cutting at least one lock a day for almost two weeks, these were people who either lost a key, or left theirs at home in another state, or broke the key off in the lock, or sometimes broke the key off in someone else's lock! He hates cutting locks!

    @BAAAAStorage my money is on the fired manager. Never doubt the power of petty revenge
