We require a valid, state or federal issued, picture ID along with your first month’s rent payment. We do not charge a deposit or any other fees.
The minimum rental period is one month. All leases are month-to-month. Rent is always due on the first of the month. If you sign up in the middle of a month, your rent will be prorated for the remainder of that month. We do not prorate rent on your move out. Your last month’s rent is due in full regardless of the day you move out.
You will be required to have your own lock – we sell locks for your convenience just in case you don’t already have one.
For security we do not permit 24 hour access. After you sign a lease you will be issued a gate code which will allow entry between the hours of 8 am and 8 pm everyday.
Availability changes on a daily basis. In order to make sure that the space that you want is available when you need it, we recommend that you call in advance to check availability.
Insurance is your own responsibility. You may carry your own insurance (check your homeowner’s or renter’s policy to see if you are already covered). You may also acquire insurance through a third party insurance company like TenantOne
We accept cash, checks, money orders, MasterCard, Visa, and Discover.
You will need to visit the facility to lease your unit and make the initial payment. After that, you may call to make payments via credit card over the phone.
We are not currently setup to offer automatic payments. However, most banking institutions offer an automatic “bill pay” option – check with your bank for details.
We sell a variety of moving boxes at the storage office.
Creating a detailed inventory can help you keep tabs on your stuff. It is also a good idea to have copies of serial numbers and paperwork for insurance purposes.
We do not permit storing of chemicals, explosives, oil, gasoline, perishable foods, etc. Items like lawnmowers, fuel containers, propane tanks should be drained or purged prior to storing. If you are unsure about an item, please ask us.
We take every step to help you protect your things while they are at our facility but ultimately security begins and ends with you.

If possible, leave an aisle wide enough to walk through. This will allow for quicker access later on. Keep frequently used items near the front. You should also place heavier items on the ground and lighter items on top. Do not stack items to high or they might topple.
Box strength degrades over time. Investing in sturdy boxes now will pay off by better ensuring the protection of you things. Using boxes of similar size will also make stacking easier. Do not over pack boxes – they should be comfortable to carry to prevent injuries. Make sure to clearly label your boxes.
Wrapping or covering furniture with plastic will help protect from dust and moisture. Appliances like refrigerators should be cleaned out and left with the doors open so they can breath. Placing a fresh box of baking soda inside can be used to absorb any lingering odors. You can also maximize space by placing small boxes inside appliances.
