Storage units are versatile and can be used as an extension of a home, giving you more living space in your house or apartment. However, for one reason or another, sometimes people abandon their storage units.

Storage Unit Legalities: When Family Members Do or Do Not Have Authority to Enter a Unit without the Renter’s Consent?
Storage units are a secure and viable option when you need to stow surplus goods, relocate or are just short on space. When you rent a storage unit, you enter into a contract with the storage facility. As part of that contract, the facility makes all reasonable efforts to secure your possessions from unlawful intrusion, and that may include intrusion by your family. However, there are times when family members may have the right to enter your storage unit without expressed consent from you.
Power of Attorney. A renter can relinquish rental authority by designating a power of attorney or including such in a will.

Urban legends spread like wildfire, and one reason they do that is because they seem so plausible. We hear stories about meth labs being run out of self-storage units, people living in them, homicide evidence being concealed… It’s a terrifying thought, isn’t it?
That’s why Holiday Self Storage has made security the most important feature of our location.
It Does Make a Difference!
While they’re just urban legends, they originate off of reported news. Crime happens, and we know that for certain. But where does it happen? In a well-lit, video-monitored building? No, it usually happens where criminals feel they can Continue reading
Your posters are on the walls. Your mini-fridge is stocked with juice. You’re ready to take on college life…

You aren’t the only person to move into their dorm room and suddenly realize that 15x15ft isn’t as big as you thought it would be.
