Do I need to have insurance?
Alberta Storage Place does not provide insurance coverage on any items you store in our facility. Our clients have three options regarding Insurance, 1) Provide proof you have homeowner’s or renter’s insurance coverage or 2) Purchase contents insurance from us or 3) sign a waiver that you will not carry any insurance coverage and assume all responsibility and liability for your items stored in our facility. We offer optional content insurance for your convenience, at low monthly fees. Although you are not obligated to purchase insurance, for your peace of mind, serious consideration should be given to having insurance coverage. If you have homeowner’s insurance, we recommend you inform your Insurance Agent you are storing some of your possessions off site and away from your home. We have found most insurance underwriters are requiring your possessions be in heated space. We are unable to provide business coverage.
What kind of documentation do I need to rent storage?
We require valid photo ID issued from a government agency, and a valid credit card.
Can I rent a storage unit over the phone, or online?
New customers can reserve or rent a storage unit on the phone or online. You can come to the office during regular office hours, or we can prepare an E-Lease which you can sign via Docusign so the whole transaction is online. You can then come into the office to pick up your access card, or after hour access can be arranged.
How long do I have to rent my storage unit for?
We have a one month storage commitment. To cancel we require 30 days clear written notice, prior to the end of any calendar month. Please note: there is a minimum six month rental for RV and Yard Storage.
What happens if I need a different size unit upon moving-in or as time goes on?
You can change your unit/space on short notice and we will transfer you to a unit that meets your needs, as long as we have the availability.
