Before signing a rental agreement, there are some things you should know. Duncan storage facilities vary both in quality and how they operate.
What to ask when shopping for a Storage unit in the Cowichan Valley:
1. Hours of Operation
What hours of the day do you get to access your belongings?
Many facilities only offer gate and facility access from dawn to dusk. Storage HQ prides itself on the fact that we offer our customers 24/7 gate access. This is greatly appreciated by our commercial customers in the construction trades.
2. Payment Options
What is your preferred method of payment?
Some facilities in Duncan prefer to collect cash, others ask customers to send e-transfers. At Storage HQ we build our systems in hopes of saving the customer time, money, and headaches. Sign up for bill autopay using your credit card and never drop off a cheque again!
3. Billing Cycle
How often are you going to get billed for your self storage unit?
Not every Duncan Self Storage facility offers monthly billing. Beware of 4-week billing, it appears cheaper but adds two extra payments for your storage unit every year. Are you moving into your self storage unit in the middle of the month? Ask if the facility offers prorated move-ins.
4. Security Deposit
Do I have to pay a security deposit before renting a unit?
Many storage facilities require customers to pay an extra month’s rent at the time of booking. At Storage HQ we know moving is expensive and stressful, so you should keep your money for the pizza to feed all your helpers! Sign up for autopay using a credit card and we waive your move-in damage deposit.
