storage tips

Important Storage Guidelines and requirements

  • Purchase insurance on your property, either through us or with your own agent. Remember that the storage operator does not insure your goods.
  • Remember to give at least 10 days written notice before you plan to move out of your unit. This is required by the contract you sign!
  • Don't store prohibited items such as tires, food, or flammable items.
  • Your property could be sold at a public auction if you stop paying rent on your unit. Texas Property Code Chapters 59 and 70 dictate the state's rules for self-storage operators.
  • In order to rent a unit you must have a driver's license or government issued identification as well as a form of payment (all major credit cards are accepted as well as cash or check)

General Storage Information

  • Do not store hazardous or toxic materials OR flammable liquids or gases OR foods. If you are not sure you should store something, ask us!
  • Do not store any combustibles! Do not store items such as propane tanks, old paint, cleaning fluids, gasoline or other things that might create or intensify a fire. Why risk your possessions just to keep a few cents worth of leftovers?
  • Remember that only the tenant is legally entitled to enter the storage space unless other arrangements have been made with the self-storage facility; for example, if you want friends and members of your family to use your storage space, you must list them under access rights on the rental agreement.
  • Visit your unit on occasion to check the condition of your possessions; occasionally move or shift your goods so that you see all sides of them. Report any problems immediately.
  • When moving out of storage, give at least 10 days written notice. Take everything and don't leave any trash. Leave the unit in broom-clean condition. Remove your lock.
  • If storing bedding, clothing or furniture covered in fabric or property that may be affected by changes in temperature, it may be wiser to rent climate-controlled space to provide a better storage environment for your personal possessions. Be certain that everything stored is dry, as any moisture may cause mildew. If you move during rain, dry off your goods before placing them into storage. Do not store anything that is wet; moisture is bad for virtually all property or goods.
