Lease and Payments
You can check the sizes and prices of units on our website.
Our rental contracts are all month-to-month. No long-term lease is required.
You can pay your bill conveniently through our online bill pay feature
We bill on the 1st of each month. If your payment is late, we grant every customer a 5-day grace period. Late fees will be charged beginning on the 6th of each month. After the 5th of the month, any account that is past due will be denied access to their unit until such time as the balance is brought current. If payment is not received by the 15th of the month, an additional late fee is added to your account. Late fee amounts are specified in your rental agreement.
If rent and associated fees are not paid, you are at risk, under Tennessee law, of the contents of your unit being sold at auction to pay unpaid rent, fees, and any costs of the sale incurred by the facility owner. If, after this procedure, any net proceeds of the auction remain, they are paid to you. We never want this to happen. To prevent this from happening, we offer the following options.
- Call your location manager and arrange for our “One Time Grace Period Program.” This program will allow you a one-time catch-up program.
- If, during the first month of your lease, you find that you will be unable to pay, let the location manager know and immediately move out. This will stop all collection efforts.
