Use the best lock possible to protect your valuables
Purchase insurance on your property, either through the facility or with your own agent. Remember that the storage operator does not insure your goods.
Remember to give at least 10 days written notice before you plan to move out of your unit. This is required by the contract you sign.
Don’t store prohibited items such as tires, food, or flammable items. Check with the office if you have questions about a particular item.
Your property could be sold at a public auction if you stop paying rent on your unit. Texas Property Code Chapters 59 and 70 dictate the State’s rules for self-storage operators.
Carefully read the contract you are asked to sign. If there are provisions that you don’t understand, ask the manager to explain them. The rental agreement is a legal contract. It is important that you understand what you are signing.
Keep a copy of the written rental agreement.
Obtain and read a copy of the rules and regulations of the facility.
