Access terms, hours and advanced notices will be negotiated between storage owners and renters. However, here are a couple of examples that can help you to determine how storage will be accessed:
- Storage owner A has a listed a garage for rent in their home. She locks up the door that connects her garage to her home and provides the renter with the garage door opener or code to open the garage door. In this case, the renter can access their property 24/7.
- Storage owner B has listed one of their spare bedrooms for rent. He requires a 24 hour notice for most requests for access with a maximum of 1 week in the rare case that they are away on vacation. They prefer access to be in the late afternoons; however, the owner is willing to make exceptional time in cases of emergency. When the renter needs their property, they simply call the number and schedule a time for access.
- Storage owner C is a commercial location. She is very busy in the mornings but the afternoons are slow. She allows the renter access to their property at any time in the afternoons.
Most traditional self-storage companies only allow access to your property during business hours. StoreAtMyHouse storage owners can allow access 24/7!
