Our competitor is now offering lock cutting services through Pop-A-Lock. I'm sure storage facilities will still have to pay for the service, although it's unclear what that rate will be. I would imagine it would be around $40 for the first lock and then $10-20 for each additional lock. So, what do you guys think about this idea?

I'm not sure I understand the concept?

Well, some storage facility managers don't want to or are incapable of cutting tenant's locks and actually pay other people to do it. Yes, I know that it's quite simple to cut a lock with a grinder, but some people aren't comfortable using tools like that. Keep in mind that the demographic for facility managers in the U.S. is primarily females above the the age of 50.

Hmm, interesting concept. I know a few "members" of criminal "clubs" that would do it for free, just to get the practice time in.

I have been watching the online storage auctions andlately they are almost all private sellers. The novelty is dying off and using a service as pop a lock just cost the storage buyer more money. To me this doesnt make the storage compay and more honest. The house usually always wins  :72:
