Self Storage in Leicester, Coventry & Castle Donington

Payments for any product we rent or sell are taken in advance from your payment method (debitor credit card) automatically, either monthly, 3 monthly, 6 monthly or 12 monthly, depending on the subscription you decided to take when you made your booking. Also you can be charged for making a mess in any of our locations, leaving rubbish or vehicles unattended or other things that inhibit the use of our locations for other customers.

Should your payment method fail, then we will continue to try and charge your payment method every day and you will receive emails informing you of the failed payments.

In exteme cases we allow you to pay by BACS, however, this is a chargable service and we only use this type of payment in extreme cases by agreement.

Please immediately fix overdue payment issues to save further action.

You can change or update your payment method simply by logging onto your account on our website and go to payment methods. We have also created this easy to follow guide, simply click here to download it.

What happens if you have an overdue payment?

Unfortunately there are serious consequenses if you do not pay your bill or fail to talk to us about the problem.

After notifying you several times that you have failed to pay us, we will then restrict access to your Container, Storage Unit, Warehouse or Office.

We will apply extra charges to your account for everything we have to do to get you to pay until your bills are up to date. We will not allow you to enter your rental until all outstanding charges are paid.

In extreme circumstances, we reserve the right to dispose the contents of your rental charging you for this. You have agreed to the terms in our licence with you, which means we own your property in your rental if you do not pay your bills, you can find a copy of the licence in your documents when you log into ‘my account. on our website, and you recieved a copy of this licence by email when you first subscribed to renting from us.

Please note, we reserve the right to clear the contents of your container, unit, office or warehouse without notice if payment is 30 days overdue or more.
