- We love that you have decided to rent a storage unit at Logan Self Storage. We want you to be aware of some of our rules and regulations when it comes to what you can and can not store in your unit. Below are a few items we prohibit storing in our facility for the safety of your items and the items of your storage unit neighbors.
- $1Cash should be placed in a bank account or safely in your home. Never in a storage unit. The risk of having it in a storage unit where it can become damaged or broken into is a risk we don’t want you to take.
- $1Plants will not survive in a storage unit. They need fresh air and sunlight in order to thrive and grow. Additionally, they could attract unwanted guests such as bugs and rodents, which can cause damage to the other items you are storing in your unit. The attraction of pests can also damage your neighboring tenant’s items as well.
- $1Firearms, munitions, gunpowder and explosives are also not allowed. The probability of something going wrong with any of these items is too high for them to be placed in storage. If an accident does occur it can cause harm to your items as well as others who have units in the facility. It is best if they are locked up and stored properly elsewhere.
- $1Perishable Foods are also prohibited in storage units. When food is placed in a storage unit it can attract unwanted guests and have the potential to rot. It can cause extensive damage to the items in your storage unit as well as the units next to yours. One exception to this rule is canned goods as they do not perish and are protected from unwanted visitors.
- $1Living in or Kenneling in a storage unit is not prohibited. While a storage unit may be cheaper than room and board for you or your pets, it is not suitable for living in. If you do place your animal in a storage unit you will be charged with animal cruelty.
- $1Hazardous material and waste storage should not be placed in your storage unit. If it’s corrosive, chemical, odorous, noxious or toxic, it can’t go in storage, either. This includes lead paint, asbestos, urea formaldehyde, polychlorinated biphenyl, petroleum, petroleum products and constituents, methane, medical waste, toxic substances and related materials as defined in several federal acts and state statutes.
