What Happens to Abandoned Storage Units?
There are many reasons why people rent storage units. For instance, when relocating, especially locally or temporarily, it can be tedious to move all your property when you know you’re just going to need to move it back. It is much easier to rent a place where you can store your property until you return.
Oddly enough, some people don’t return. Here’s what happens with stuff that’s left unattended too long:
We Notify You You’re Stuff Is Still Here
When you rent a unit from Holiday Self-Storage, you sign a contract that says you’ll pay rent every month. If rent goes unpaid, even for one month, we will notify you (using the most recent contact information you supplied) to let you know that rent is past due. There’s a grace period of a few days, so you don’t have to worry that your stuff is going to be moved to the curb if your storage unit rent is late by a day or two.
We Make Space for Other Stuff
However…if your rent is months past due and we have had no success getting in touch with you, we will auction off the abandoned property and clear out the unit for a new renter.
We’re not judging: if it takes an auction to know we mean business, you have until the day of the auction to pay your balance and put yourself back on good contractual terms and continue use of the unit.
