What Storage unit size do I need?
The best way to determine which storage option is right for you is with our helpful Storage Unit Size Guide! It will help you estimate what size unit you will need based upon the size of your home, apartment or the size of your moving truck. If you need further assistance, please contact us.
How long of a lease am I required to sign?
Fork Union Self Storage offers units that are rented on a month-to-month basis. Your rental with us can be long-term or short-term depending on your needs.
Do I need my own lock?
Customers provide their own lock. We recommend purchasing a disk or cylinder lock to ensure the highest level of security.
Am I required to purchase insurance on my storage unit?
Insurance is recommended but not required. If your homeowner or renter's insurance doesn't cover stored items, we can help you find a storage insurance provider.
How far in advance can I reserve a storage unit?
We give you the flexibility to book a reservation up to 7 days in advance to help you plan ahead.
What do I need to rent a storage unit?
You will need to provide an E-mail address that will be used to send you an electronic rental agreement that can be completed on your cell phone or computer in 5 minutes. We require first payment through credit or debit card prior to moving in. Once the rental agreement is complete and payment is received, you may move in to your unit.
What payment options do you offer?
Fork Union Self Storage strives to make your storage experience as convenient as possible, including paying your bill. Monthly payments can be made by phone (434-333-5901), or by mailing us a check or money order. The easiest and most convenient method to pay your monthly storage unit fee is through easy pay. You will need a credit or debit card to take advantage of this service.
Does Fork Union Storage offer long-term leases?
If you're in need of a long-term storage solution, we work with customers who have long-term self storage needs and allow you to prepay on a yearly basis (12 months). We also rent our storage units on a month-to-month basis. This allows our customers the flexibility to rent as long as necessary.
What are the terms of a lease?
Your rental with us can be long or short, depending on your needs. Monthly rent is due at the 1st of each month. We offer a grace period of 10 days before a $10 late fee will apply. For your convenience, we offer many payment options including the option to pre-pay for up to twelve months of rent. When you are ready to vacate, we require 15 days written notice before vacating.
What happens if I do not pay my storage rental fee?
Your monthly rent is due on the 1st day of each month. We provides a 10-day grace period before charging a late fee on the 11th day past a payment due date. For further details, please refer to your lease or contact us. Late fees cannot be waived and the full balance must be paid immediately to avoid foreclosure. No partial payments are accepted. Please also note that until your account is paid in full, access to your unit may be denied and your unit will be over-locked.
How long after my account is delinquent will my belongings go to auction?
The length of time for a past-due account to be placed in auction varies by state law. We recommend that you contact the facility manager to discuss your account as soon as possible if your payment is late. Fork Union Self Storage will provide written notice to your physical address or email address listed on your account, again depending on state law. Additionally, facility managers frequently try to contact any customer in default by phone prior to an auction process. As a customer, it's your responsibility to make sure we have accurate, up-to-date contact information associated with your account and to pay your bill on time.
What happens if my belongings go to auction?
Once the unit is sold, the proceeds are applied to your outstanding balance. If the proceeds are higher than the amount due, a check for the difference will be sent to the person leasing the storage unit. If the proceeds are lower than the outstanding balance, the account will be sent to collections.
