You can install an alarm system at an additional cost. (link to this information should be placed here)

Do you keep a key to my unit?

We require that the office has a key on hand. Please contact the office manager for details.

Can I designate specific people, other than myself, to have access to my storage unit?

You can restrict access to yourself, or you may designate specific people to have access to your unit.

Are there specific times that I can access my storage unit?

You can access your unit 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

Lease Terms and Payments

Do you have automatic payment options?

Yes! You can pay your bill or set up automatic payments by creating an online account. Click here to create your account.

Can I pay in person?

Absolutely! You can arrange to pay in person with our office staff. You may use check, Visa, Mastercard, Discover, or American Express. Processing fee will apply.

What happens if I’m late with my payment?

We bill on the 1st of each month. If your payment is late, we grant every customer a 5-day grace period. Late fees will be charged beginning on the 6th of each month. After the 5th of the month, any account that is past due will be denied access to their unit until such time as the balance is brought current. If payment is not received by the 15th of the month, an additional late fee is added to your account. Late fee amounts are specified in your rental agreement.

Do you require that I have insurance on the watercraft and vehicles I’ve placed in storage?

Yes. You are responsible for maintaining insurance on all items that you have placed in storage. If you currently have coverage, please provide a copy of your declarations page at time of rental. 

Do you rent space month-to-month or do I have to sign a long-term lease?

Our rental contracts are all month-to-month. No long-term lease is required.

How does the move-out process work?

  • Provide written 30-day notice via email, letter, or drop off note at the office. 
  • Remove your watercraft/vehicles from your storage unit.
  • Contact management or stop by the office to inform us that you’ve emptied your unit.
  • Your account will be immediately closed.
  • Remember to take your lock; it is yours to keep. 

What if I fail to pay my rent/late fees?

If rent and associated fees are not paid, you are at risk of the contents of your unit being sold at auction to pay unpaid rent, fees, and any costs of the sale incurred by the facility owner. If, after this procedure, any net proceeds of the auction remain, they are paid to you. We never want this to happen. We do have options.

  • If, during the first month of your lease, you find that you will be unable to pay, let the location manager know and immediately move out. This will stop all collection efforts.

If you still have unanswered questions, please feel free to give us a call. Our friendly, knowledgeable staff will be happy to offer any further information that you need.
