In some cases, a facility has a unit that is use to store facility items like inventory or, perhaps, donated space for a local charity. In that case, the unit should still be entered into QuikStor Express as occupied so it is not accidentally rented to someone else. The easiest way to do this is to move the tenant in at a rate of $0.01 per month and give free months at move-in. Here are the steps you can take to do that:
- On the financial tab of the move-in screen click the Monthly Rent button as shown here:
- A smaller window will appear asking for the new rent. Enter “.01” for the new rent. Make sure the “Retain Rent” radio button is checked
- On the “Rent Payment” button you will want to select Other Amount and then select the boxes for Free Stuff, Free X months (set the # of months, I used 24 in this example) and Free Setup Fee and Free Security Deposit if they apply. The total rent payment should be zero.
Now you can finish your move-in as normal! Rent won’t charge for however many months you selected and, if rent does charge it will only show $.01 per month. At that time you can change the paid to date forward if need be or use a quarter to take care of the next two years!
