How long is your rental agreement?

We offer month to month rentals for self-storage units and seasonal rentals for bulk storage (boats, campers, or larger items).

If I begin renting in the middle of a month, am I expected to pay for the full month?

No, we prorate the rental charge depending on the number of days you will occupy the unit for the initial month.
