Storage Myths in Barefoot Beach
If you are not a regular user of self storage you may have heard many things about it. Some of the things you have heard may be true and some may be myths. Our Storage Myths page will help you sort the fact from the fiction. This will help you make an informed decision on selecting the storage you need at a facility you can trust.
Myth - Cheapest is Best
None of us like to over pay. Not all storage facilities are the same. It is a good idea to make sure your belongings will be safe and secure. If a price is too cheap to be true, be careful. Ask if they have security cameras. Do they have an onsite manager? Is the facility well lighted? Is the perimeter fenced? Do they have gates? Are the gates computer controlled? Is there regular pest service? We believe that Beach Storage LLC, LLC is very competitive and is a safe secure facility to protect your belongings.
Myth - Everyone Charges an Administration Fee
We don't, but some facilities charge an administration fee. This is often $10 to $25 for filling out the contract and putting your name into their computer. We don't like paperwork anymore than you, but we do not charge any administration fee. Our self storage software makes signing up a quick and easy process.
Myth - Deposits Are Required
Beach Storage LLC, LLC does not require deposits. Some facilities do charge deposits. We trust that you will be a good tenant. Good tenants help keep everyone's belongings safe and secure. We are proud to have a lot of really good customers. We trust that you will leave your storage unit clean and empty just like you found it when it comes time for you to move out. If you have items to donate, stop in the office. We may be able to help you find a charity that can find a new home for your gently used items.
Myth - You Must Purchase Insurance
Some storage facilities say you must buy insurance from them. We suggest that our customers check with their own insurance companies. Many home owners and renters’ policies cover offsite storage at no extra charge. Check your policy so you don't spend money buying something you already have. It is a good idea to review what is covered under you existing policy. Ask if you are covered for replacement value, not the depreciated actual value. Beach Storage LLC, LLC does not force you to buy insurance. What coverage you wish to carry is completely up to you.
Myth - No Deliveries
Some storage facilities do not accept deliveries or charge a fee for accepting deliveries. Accepting deliveries is a free service we offer at Beach Storage LLC, LLC. We can hold your packages in the office for you. We can also let the driver into your unit if you would prefer. This frees you up to do more important things. Your items will be waiting for you when you get to your self storage unit.
