Are there any hidden costs?August 13, 2021 2:53 pm Leave your thoughts
No. We let you know upfront all the costs that will be involved before you move in. There are 4 things you need to consider. Your refundable security deposit, storage fees, insurance and a padlock to secure your room, if you don’t already own a suitable one.
All customers are required to pay a security deposit before storing. How much is dependent on the size room you choose. The amount is usually the equivalent of one week’s storage fees (inc. VAT) for our storage rooms and 28 days of storage fees if you are a Flexi Office or Vehicle Parking customer.
Storage is paid in advance and 4 weekly. When you move in you will need to pay for your first storage period. You will then continue paying every 4 weeks until you give us notice to move out.
Insurance is dependent on the full new replacement value of your goods if you had to buy them again today. Please call us on 01354 661999 for advice. The cost of insurance starts from £4 per week for £3,000 of cover.
Padlocks need to fit our doors. The ones we sell are the correct size and of a suitable durability. Both contain a hardened steel shackle of either 8mm or 9mm in diameter. Please check with the store if you are bringing your own padlock that it is suitable for use. Outside 20’ containers must have a suitable shackle type padlock secured inside the centre lock box. Padlocks fixed in any other location will void your insurance cover.
