Q1. How does self storage work?

Please note that we do not prorate, nor do we offer refunds.

Q3. Is there a benefit to signing a long-term agreement?

Place For Your Stuff often offers discounts for long-term storage. If you know that you require storage for one year or more, please contact us for our current storage promotions.

Q4. What size units do you have?

Place For Your Stuff offers 5', 10', and 20' wide units. All the units are 8' deep and 9' high.

If you require a 10' or 20' unit but none are available, we can offer multiple 5' units, side by side, for the price of a larger unit. If this option works for you, call our office so that we can ensure you receive two adjacent units. Please contact us for further information.

Please call our office if you are unsure how much storage space will be needed. We can ensure an empty unit nearby if you need to 'upsize'.

Q5. What are the payment options?

Place For Your Stuff accepts VISA/Debit and Mastercard/Debit. Our convenient account management allows you to pay your bills from the comfort of your home.

Alternatively, you can phone the office during business hours at (587)764-0119 to process a payment.

We encourage customers to set up reoccurring billing to avoid missing a payment. This can be set up when you login through the website.

Q6. When can I move in?

If there is an available unit that suits your storage needs, you can move in at any time.

Upon payment approval, you will receive a gate code. This gate code allows access to our facility, which is open 24/7.

Please note that e-Transfer payments will only be processed during business hours. This may affect your access to the facility.

Q9. Do I need to supply my own padlock for my storage unit?

Yes, please bring a padlock with you when you move in. When you rent a unit, a welcome email will be sent to  you which outlines details about accessing the facility as well as our recommendation on the type of padlock to use. 

Q10. Will my items be safe?

Our facility is completely fenced off with gate access only. Our 24/7 motion sensor security system records and follows movement within the facility and stores video footage in our database.

Q11. What if I'm late with a payment?

Please get in touch with us if you cannot make a payment on time.

If the amount is late, you will be locked out of your storage unit until you have paid the balance owed.

Refer to your Storage Agreement regarding late fees you may incur.

Q12. How much notice is needed to vacate my rental unit?

Invoices are automatically sent out a week before the start of your billing cycle.

Please notify us of your move out date 7 days before your billing cycle commences to ensure you will not be charged for the next month. Your unit must be emptied the day before your billing cycle begins.
