Understanding the Process of Renting Storage Units

If you’re looking for a good storage facility, it’s wise to plan some site visits. This gives you a chance to see for yourself how the storage units are arranged. Whether you’re looking for a long-term solution or a temporary one for storing your belongings, make sure you keep an eye out for an excellent facility that’s priced right for your budget.

Your ideal storage company is the one that takes commitment to integrity and truthfulness seriously. Even when you’re not sure what size or type of storage unit you will need, a business with good customer service will always be happy to help. When you find a company like that, they’re much easier to trust. You’ll also want to ask about the types of things they typically allow to be stored in their facility.

Example of things stored in storage rentals include:

Office Files
Work equipment
Motorcycles & Bicycles
Old Video Games
Model Trains

How renting storage works

Rental contracts are typically paid month-to-month — renters usually pay a small rental fee at the first of every month until they no longer need the storage space.

Storage rental agreements are a major consideration when choosing which unit to rent. Here are some terms that you should know if you are renting a storage unit:

Term – The period of the tenancy and the minimum rental term.
Rent – The amount for the rent and the date it’s due.
Change of Address – If you need to update your address, this is the process used.
Administration Fee – Non-refundable administration charge accepted to rent/reserve unit.
Security Deposit – Lessee pays security deposit in advance for stated amount.
Notices – All notices go through first class mail postage to lessee’s last known address. All constitutional notices should be sent as required by law.
No Warranties – No implied or expressed warranties are prearranged by the facility owner.
No Oral Agreements – Agreements of any kind for rental or lease should be in writing, and oral agreements are not applicable.
Succession – All necessities of this rental agreement apply to and will be obligatory upon all successors in concern, representatives of the parties here to.
Enforcement – If whichever part of this rental contract is unenforceable for any reason, in any circumstance, the two parties agree that such issues shall be enforceable in specific circumstances and the residual parts of this contract will be legal and enforceable.

Late Charges and Other Fees:

Denial of Access
Release of operator’s liability for property damage
Release of operator’s liability for bodily injury

You should never sign a contract that you haven’t read through and understood in its entirety. For any questions concerning legality, confer with your legal advisor.
