What is Self-Storage and How Does it Work?
Acl Storage is a self-service storage company that provides clean ready to rent units for personal, business, and recreational storage use. If you're looking to clear up some much needed space at home or finding yourself with limited to no space to hold much needed business items, Acl Storage is for you. We offer clean, secure storage solutions at competitive monthly, rates. Pay every 6 months or annually for even more discounts.

Who Else Has Access to my Storage Unit?
The unit you rent is secured with your lock and your key - only you can decide who has access to your unit and who doesn't. It's our policy to never give anyone who isn't on your rental agreement access. We feel this only adds to the security of your items. However, you are free to divulge your unit number, key, and gate-code access to anyone of your choosing as long as you're comfortable with them accessing your unit. You can also fill out an Authorized User Privileges form, which gives us permission to give access to anyone included on your list. If you'd like to remove anyone included on this list, you must do so in writing.

Strictly drive up units. Drive-up storage is perfect for those looking for quick, easy access to their items. Drive straight up to your unit, park, unload, and take off (or hang out). Our roll-up doors make accessing your unit a breeze and save space unlike their swinging-door counterparts. 

How Long Can I Rent a Unit?
Rent your unit for as long (or short) as you need! We offer month-to-month leases and bill in one-month increments. Our goal is to make your storage experience as simple and easy as possible. We just require a 10 day notice to vacate.

Are My Items Insured While Being Storage At Your Facility? Renting a storage unit is similar to renting an apartment. The same way your landlord doesn't insure your personal belongings, Acl Storage doesn't insure your items either. However, we do offer an excellent Property Protection program that satisfies the lease requirement, for just $10.95 a month! Please note: if you have homeowner's or renter's insurance, your property may be covered, but you should double check with your agent.

What Forms of Payment do You Accept? We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, checks, cash and money orders. We also accept payments online and over the phone. Automatic billing is available with a form on file as well.

Account FAQs

Can I Pay Over the Phone With a Credit Card? You can pay over the phone with a credit card, but you must fill out an authorized phone payment form. OR, you can pay online!

When is my Payment Due?  All of our payments are due on the 1st of the month.

I'm Ready to Move Out of my Unit - Do You Require Notice? Yes. We require a 10 day notice - in writing - before your next billing date.

I Can't Find the Key to my Unit - What Can I do? One of our storage consultants can cut the lock for you for a nominal fee cheaper then a local locksmith. We do not allow bolt cutters on the property for your security as well as our other tenants. Please keep in mind, if you do try to cut your own luck, you may damage the slide-bolt and door, both of which you will be liable for.

Do You Pro-Rate My Final Month?
As a general rule, we do not offer pro-rated billing. However, rare exceptions can be made if you need your unit for an extra day or two and you have made arrangements in advance with your store manager. If you have any questions regarding your unit and rental agreement, please don't hesitate to speak to the manager. We strive to achieve the best customer experience possible. One way we can achieve this is by having an open dialogue with management!
