Space Saver Storage requires two weeks’ notice prior to vacating the unit. A refund will be given to the nearest full week that the unit is not occupied. Please note that there is a one month minimum period of hire.
Non-Payment of Storage Fees
Should your storage fees remain unpaid, various steps may be taken to recover the monies owed.
