Q. What are your methods of payment?
A. We accept cash, checks, money orders and major credit cards. Major credit and debit cards are accepted through PayPal. Customers may take advantage of the PayPal Automatic Payment System, without having a PayPal account. The payments are automatically withdrawn out of the account determined by the Customer. Upon termination of the lease, the automatic withdrawals are stopped by the customer. Using this option eliminates accidentally missing a payment.

A. Yes. We pro-rate rent on the entrance month but not the exit month. On the entrance month you only pay for the days you are renting the space, from your move-in date thru the end of the month.
Q. What tips do I need to know to pack my items for storage?
A. Store expensive items to the rear and place large pieces of furniture to the front of the unit.
Wrap glass and other breakable items in bubble wrap, newspaper, paper pads, or quilts.
Use the height of the unit to maximize the cubic feet by standing large pieces of furniture on end and/or stacking items. Do this only if the furniture is safe and securely placed.
Use paper pads or cloth to protect furniture from scratches.
Store heavier items on the bottom and light items on top.
For ventilation, leave a few inches of space between the walls and your stored items.
Label your boxes on three sides to save time from having to move them around to find the contents.
Maintain a written inventory of items stored in your unit.
In storage, place valuables, books, and other delicate items in a plastic tote. Place boxes on pallets to keep them off the floor and away from moisture.
