Yes, we require 3 day notice so we can prepare final invoicing and move any units that may be blocking your unit.

Can I make a reservation for Fall?

No. We are not prepared to take reservations for the fall. We would like to get back to taking reservations and will do so when we can be transparent about how many spaces we have in the mine that can fit your unit, and we feel confidently we can honor the reservations we take. This applies mainly to units over 11 feet tall. We have thousands of parking spaces for units that are not over 10 foot 8 inches tall.

Do I need to pay in full before my unit is moved out?

Yes. We are trying to invoice everyone properly for their final month. We are offering discounts and refunds based on which week of the month you move out. Please try to pay your invoice before coming to pick up your unit. If you paid for a full month, but move out early, you will be issued a refund on the following Monday. If you have questions about refunds, staff can explain in detail when you are on site.

You should receive your final invoice no later than two days prior to your move out. We will try to invoice you for the exact amount you owe, but refunds and partial refunds will be issued on the following Monday after your move out.
