Frequently Asked Moving Questions

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s) - In addition to the information provided within our website, here are the answers to some commonly asked questions about Self Storage:

Q. What size storage unit do I need?A. You can use our Space Calculator on the website to help you determine approximately what size unit you will need based on the information you provide.

You may also call our office and speak to the manager on duty. Our managers will be able to make a recommendation based on the information you provide about what you will be storing.

Q. What does climate control mean? A. Climate controlled units are heated in the winter and due to our cooler climate, naturally cooled in the summer. Climate control helps protect sensitive items such as wood furniture, leather furniture, electronics, paintings, important documents, etc. The usual maximum temperature in a climate-controlled unit is approximately 78 degrees.The minimum temperature in a climate-controlled unit is approximately 50 degrees and the humidity level does not typically go above approximately 60%.
Q. Do I need a climate-controlled unit? A. If you are storing any of the more sensitive items listed in FAQ #2 for more than 1 month, you should consider climate control. If you would be comfortable storing your items in a typical garage, then climate control is not necessary for you.
Q. Do I have to sign a long-term contract when I rent a unit? A. No. All leases are on a month to month basis. There is a one-month minimum term rental. We do not rent units by the day or week. We only require 10 days notice when you are vacating, so there is no long-term commitment.
Q. When is the rent due? A. Every tenant’s rent is due on the anniversary date of their first day of occupancy. For example, if you rent on the 13th of the month, your next months rent payment will be due on the 13th of each month thereafter. We will also pro-rate your rent the month you are moving out, as long as you give us the 10 days notice of vacate. We only want you to pay rent for the time you are storing with us!
Q. What are the hours I can access my unit? A. Every day from 6am – 10pm, including Holidays. Once you have signed your lease, you will be issued a personalized gate code to gain access to the property. You will need to purchase a lock and keys for your unit which are yours to keep. If you are a commercial tenant and require 24-hour access, this is available for an additional monthly charge of $15.00.

Check with your insurance agent regarding your homeowners or renters policy coverages.

Q. What tips do I need to know to pack my items for storage? A. Store expensive items to the back of the space and place large pieces of furniture to the front of the space. Wrap glass and other breakable items in bubble wrap, paper pads, or quilts. Use the height of the space to maximize the cubic feet by standing large pieces of furniture on end and/or on top of each other. Do this only if the furniture is safe and securely placed. Be sure to use paper pads or cloth to protect furniture from scratches. Store heavier items on the bottom and light items on the top. Label your boxes on three sides to save from having to move them around to find the contents. For ventilation, it is a good idea to leave a couple of inches of air space between the walls and your items, especially block walls. It is a very good idea to maintain a written inventory of items in your space. Consider storing valuables, books and other items stored in boxes on pallets to keep them off the floor and away from moisture.
