Lighthouse Self Storage Homestead, FL Storage Units

Renting a self-storage unit is easy in Cooper City, FL. Whether you’re a student who needs a place to keep their items in between semesters, or you’re trying to maximize your current home’s space, self-storage can help.

What documentation do I need to provide in order to rent a self-storage unit?

In most cases, you will just need to present a valid, government-issued form of identification. In most cases, your identification should your name and photo on it. A social security card may not be enough to rent a storage unit. A government-issued ID could be:

  • Driver’s license
  • State ID
  • Passport

Always make sure to bring your preferred method of payment. If you plan to have your payments made each month automatically, you may have to fill out the paperwork with card information on it.

Should I bring a copy of my insurance agreement?

Because some of your items may already be insured under homeowner’s or renter’s insurance, you may be required to bring documentation of which items or your declarations page. Some storage facilities may require that you have insurance on your unit, which can cost around $20 typically. However, if you already have insurance on your residence already, then that will qualify, and you may not have to pay anything extra for insurance. 

What else should I bring?

Some facilities will prefer that you tell them what the items in your storage unit in Cooper City, FL will be. You may be required to submit a list of items to be approved. While you will have privacy and confidentiality, some facilities do want to make sure the storage facility will continue to be safe and secure for all renters.

Do I have to sign a long-term lease or can I rent month to month?

You may have a choice to rent month to month or sign a long term lease depending on your needs. This document is provided for you by the facility from which you are renting. You aren’t typically required to bring any other documents with you unless otherwise specified by the facility. You should always call ahead and make sure you’re bringing everything that you need in order to rent a unit.

What do I have to bring to get into my unit?

After you’ve rented your unit, you will gain some sort of ability to access the facility. Some self-storage facilities will give you a keycard or a special code so that you can come at any time of day without the need to ask for permission.

You should make sure to put your keycard or written down access code somewhere safe where no one else can get to it and use it to gain access to the facility or your belongings. Always bring your keycard or code with you so that you can access the facility. Without this, you will not be allowed entry.

It is also recommended that you bring your ID and method of payment. Some facilities may have security measures in place where they will need to check your photo ID or valid method of payment to confirm that you are who you say you are.
