Q What am I responsible for?
A you are responsible for insuring your stored goods while on our site if you feel that this is necessary. You are also responsible for retuning the store to us as it was when you hired it namely clean and empty and undamaged internally, and also that you don't leave any of your stored goods on site after the hire agreement ends we will surcharge you if we need to clean out your store or remove your discarded items from site. It is you also your responsible for the safety of your store keys, if you cant return these to us you will forfeit your deposit and possibly incur additional cost to have the lock removed. Its all pretty basic stuff and will be fully explained when you hire a store.
Q Do you get any condensation in the stores and will my goods be dry?
A All our stores are new and are completely water tight so anything put in will definitely not get wet from rain water, condensation can occur but only if you put wet items in the store or you let the floor or doors get very wet. When this water evaporates it can condense on the walls but this is very rare and only tends to effect old stores of this type that were not built for long term storage, as ours are. As all our stores are purpose built as stores they have small vents to let air circulate as long as these are not blocked it is highly unlikely you should experience any condensation.
