Moving Out of Your Storage Unit
At some point, the time will come for you to say goodbye to your self storage unit at Hometown Storage. Maybe summer break is finally over and school is about to start, or maybe that new home is ready to move into. We understand. We don’t like it, but we understand. Self storage isn’t meant to last forever. So while we hate to see you leave, we want to share some tips that can make the process of moving out of your self-storage unit go more smoothly for you.
Empty your storage unit– The first thing you want to do is clear out everything in your storage unit and remove it from the storage facility so that we can close out your account for you. It would be a shame to leave behind any of your cool stuff, but if you do find something you can no longer use, consider donating it to a charity to give it a second life. Unfortunately, Public Storage can’t take it for you.
Clean Up – We want to make sure the unit is completely clean, with all the debris removed before you leave. After you move out all of the boxes and personal belongings, please sweep it out and clean up any spills that might have happened during the stay.
Remove the lock – The lock on your self-storage space belongs to you so be sure to take it with you so you can use it again. Because you have the only key, if you leave your lock on, the space is still occupied by you even if you know there is nothing inside.
We would appreciate it if you could let us know that you are leaving in advance. As a courtesy, we just ask that you give us a week’s notice before you move out. You can let either the property manager know or schedule it by filling out the form on our website. You can always change your mind or move-out date too. That’s no problem!
After you have moved out (even if you did give advance notice), swing by the office to let your property manager know you vacated your space so he or she can inspect it and close your account.
Hometown Storage will be here when you need us again!
