Whatever service you are buying it is always good to compare prices and features but don’t forget to also compare the small print if there is a contract involved. Hidden details in the self storage small print could mean the deal is not as good as it seems at first glance. For instance a cheap weekly rate that is not fixed for a period could easily be increased with little notice. Or there may be compulsory insurance that you have to purchase through the self storage company, which might not be the best deal.
It pays to be well-informed when you take out any sort of contract so take a look at the most important points below that you should be checking out before signing a self storage contract:
- Fixed Prices
- Notice Period for Price Increases
- Notice Period to End Contract
- Compulsory Insurance
- Insurance Costs
- Insurance Exclusions
