Frequently Asked Questions

All-American Self Storage is dedicated to providing you with the best in customer service. Below are the answers to many of the most common questions we receive. If your concerns are not answered here, please feel free to contact the facility nearest you to speak with one of our self storage professionals.

How long do I have to rent a storage unit?

We offer month-to-month leases, meaning there are no long-term contracts and no commitment.

Do I need TENANT insurance?

We do not insure the contents of the unit whatsoever, we highly recommend that you make sure your stuff is properly insured. You may carry your own insurance (check your homeowner’s or renter’s policy to see if you are already covered) or sign up for a policy on-site with StorSmart Tenant Insurance. StorSmart offers policies that will insure your goods for things such as leaks, fire, burglary, etc., and require no deductible if you have to file a claim. The policy even insures your things during the move up to a 100 mile radius from the facility! Please ask the facility manager for details on plans and coverages.

Do I have to have my own lock?

You provide your own lock and key so that you are the only one with access to your storage unit. No worries though, we sell high-quality locks at each location so come empty handed!

When can I access my belongings?

Our gate access hours are from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. seven days a week. Our office hours are 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

How much notice must be given before I can move out?

It is the responsibility of the tenant to notify the facility upon vacating the unit, failure to do so may result in future charges, please give us as much notice as possible but at least 5 days. Full details on the vacating policy will be provided to you at the time of move-in.

Do you offer moving assistance?

Although we don’t provide a mover or moving trucks, all of our facilities have local, reliable movers that we recommend. Please contact your facility for full details.

What is "Climate Controlled?"

It is a storage feature that keeps spaces heated and cooled depending on outside temperature. 

Do I need climate controlled storage?

A valid driver’s license or federal ID with picture is required to lease a unit. Watercraft and RV must be accompanied by current registration and proof of insurance.

The entire move-in process should take less than 15 minutes. Please keep in mind that this time could vary depending on whether there are other customers ahead of you when you arrive. Mornings are usually the slowest period of the day, while afternoons are busier. To expedite the moving process, we you may complete your paperwork online.
