Deceiving employee: I felt like I got the runaround
They charged me for two months when I was only in for one month: We rented a climate-controlled storage space. There were no problems with the facility. However, their payment system is super confusing, in my opinion, by design. They want you to think you are paying a certain amount when that amount is actually a couple hundred dollars greater. On our lease agreement, it said the monthly rent was $269. If you start your lease in the middle of the month, lets say June 21, and leave July 21, you would think that they charge you for just one month. We had to pay $394 up front and said we would get a credit for the difference. I only got $10 back. They actually charge you for two months even if you are only there for 30 days. Why? I have no idea! The guy in charge explained it to us multiple times and it still made no sense. I totally felt like I got the runaround! I would not recommend this company for storage. Look elsewhere first for a business with more honest and transparent services.

Frequently Asked Questions

What size storage unit do I need?

Hover over the different sizes under the ‘Available Units’ section for this facility to see what fits in each space. When choosing a size, remember to think about how you intend to use the unit. Are you trying to cram it as full as possible, or do you need some extra room inside? We always recommend leaving a pathway for easy access to items at the back of the unit.

How tall are storage units?

Storage units typically have a ceiling height of about eight feet. Special units like “storage lockers” are around five feet or less. Units for vehicle storage will have higher ceilings to accommodate RVs and boats. Call us if you need more help on choosing the best unit size for your car, boat, motorcycle or RV!

Do I need climate-controlled storage?

Climate control is crucial if you live in an extreme climate or a location prone to swings in temperature. Opt for climate control if you’re storing items like leather furniture, antique woods, important documents, photos or electronics.

What are the minimum number of months I can rent?

Storage leases are typically month-to-month, so you are not obligated to a set rental length. However, many facilities offer promotions and discounts that require a minimum rental length in order to be redeemed (for example: First month free with two-month minimum). These terms will be detailed above.

Do I need a reservation or can I just walk in and rent a space?

Most facilities welcome walk-ins and don’t require a reservation. However, because prices fluctuate often based on demand and availability, we recommend booking beforehand to secure the unit and price before it changes. By using SpareFoot you can compare units and prices near you and then book online or by phone for free.

What is climate control?

Climate control keeps your belongings safe from extreme temperatures and will protect your items from warping, melting and discoloring. Most facilities that offer climate control will maintain your unit between 60 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit.

How wide are storage unit doors?

There are two types of storage unit doors:

  • 1. Swing door: A standard room door.
  • 2. Roll-up door: Rolls up just like the door on your garage.
Roll-up doors are eight to ten feet wide. Note that there are typically six inches on each side between the unit door and the edge of the wall.

What is 24-hour access?

This means you have the ability to access your storage unit whenever you need to—even when the office is closed.

Do storage units have electricity or electrical outlets?

Although electrical outlets are not common for most storage units, some facilities offer them as an amenity for select units. Storage units with electrical outlets will have “Electricity” listed under the “Features / Amenities” section of this page.
