Your rent is due on the same date each month, which is the date your lease begins. For example, if you begin renting on the 8th of the month, your rent will be due on the 8th of each month thereafter. We offer a six-day grace period, after which a late fee will be applied.
Sorry, but there are no refunds for partial months of occupancy. Please pay only for the time you intend to stay. We do allow our customers to make prorated payments for their last month’s rent, instead of paying for a full month and requesting a partial refund.
Yes. You are responsible for the things you store at Ballinger Heated Storage and we require that you have insurance. We offer several budget-friendly tenant insurance options or you can provide your own proof of insurance. Alternatively, you may be covered under your homeowner’s or renter’s policy. Check with your insurance agent to verify this.

Don’t get a small unit and try to cram everything inside. This may damage your belongings – especially when loading or unloading – and cost you more money in the long run. As you set up your storage space, put things you won’t need for a while in the back. Try to store things upright, if possible. Avoid stacking things too high as items sometimes shift in storage. Put heavy and valuable items in bins on the bottom of stacks. If you’re putting bookcases into storage, you can use the shelves as additional storage space. Leave aisles so you can get to items at the back and sides of your unit.
