- Q. Are my belongings insured while in storage?

- Q. When and how often can I access my unit?
A. You can access your unit anytime you like. We offer access 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. However, unless you set up pre-authorized payment, you will need to drop by during our office hours to pay your bill or when you initially set up your rental agreement.
- Q. How safe are my belongings?
A. We do our best to keep your belongings safe and secure. We offer computer controlled gate access so that we can monitor activity on the site. We have security cameras to keep an eye on things. Having said that, you are ultimately responsible for your goods during your term with us, so we recommend that you ensure that you have adequate insurance to cover your belongings. We would be happy to provide you with more information regarding storage insurance.
- Q. When will my rent be due?
A. Your rent is due monthly on the date that you begin renting. i.e. If you first signed your rental agreement on the 10th of the month, your rent will be due on the 10th of every month.
- Q. What happens if I don’t pay my rent on time?
A. At the very least, late fees and penalties will be incurred. In the worst case, you may lose everything you have stored. We will explain all these details to you when you rent with us, but you’ll never have to worry about it as long as you pay your rent on time.
