We have video cameras at the gate and at various other locations around the facility.  The hallways of the Climate Controlled areas also have video cameras.

TAILGATING occurs when a tenant enters their code into a keypad, the gate opens, the tenant drives in only to have another unknown vehicle follow them through the gate without entering a code.  Entrance to our facility by the means of tailgating is prohibited.  Each vehicle entering must enter by putting the own gate code in the keypad.  The gate does not need to close to enter a second gate code. The exception to this is if the second vehicle is related to the first vehicle.  We ask all tenants to report to the office any unknown vehicle that follows them into the facility by tailgating.

We keep all units locked all of the time! Tenants have the responsibility to place their lock on the unit and keep their storage unit locked all of the time.

The gate operates from 6:30 am in the morning to 9:30 pm in the evening.

SECURITY of tenants stored goods is of the utmost importance to us, All Safe Mini Stor-It. Each tenant is assigned their own personal gate code.  That code is entered on a key pad outside of the gate to gain access to our facilities and entered again on a key pad on the inside of the gate to exit.  The dates and times of entrance and exit are tracked by computer and entered in the tenants personal records.

The lien provision as it reads in the State Statutes…….

PURSUANT TO THE PROVISIONS OF THE WISCONSIN SELF STORAGE ACT, WISC. STAT. CHAP 704, SEC. 704.90 ET SEQ. (“THE ACT”), THE LESSOR HAS A LIEN ON ALL PERSONAL PROPERTY STORED, OR TO BE STORED, WITHIN THE SPACE LEASED TO LESSEE UNDER THIS LEASE.  IF LESSEE IS IN DEFAULT UNDER THE TERMS OF THIS LEASE, THE PERSONAL PROPERTY STORED IN THE LEASED SPACE MAY BE SOLD BY THE OPERATOR AS PROVIDED IN THE ACT IN ORDER TO SATISFY THE LIEN. THE LESSEE SHALL BE IN DEFAULT UNDER THIS LEASE AGREEMENT FOR BREECH OF ANY TERMS OR CONDITIONS OF THIS LEASE INCLUDING THE FAILURE TO PAY RENT WHEN DUE.  IF THE LESSEE SHALL BE IN DEFAULT UNDER THIS LEASE THE OPERATOR WILL WRITTEN NOTICE OF SUCH DEFAULT TO THE LESSEE AND DENY THE LESSEE ACCESS TO THE LEASED SPACE.

According to the Wisconsin State Statutes, what happens to the sale proceeds as stated in the Statutes…..THE PROCEEDS OF ANY SALE CONDUCTED PURSUANT TO THE ACT SHALL BE USED TO PAY RENT AND OTHER CHARGES RELATED TO THE PERSONAL PROPERTY INCLUDING EXPENSES NECESSARY TO THE PRESERVATION, REMOVAL, STORAGE, PREPARATION FOR THE SALE AND SALE OF THE PERSONAL PROPERTY AND OTHER LIEN HOLDERS, IF ANY.

The WISCONSIN STATE STATUTES require all storage companies to place a lien on the stored goods at the time of lease signing.  The purpose of the lien comes to bear only if a tenant defaults, or stops paying the rent.  If any of the stored property already has a lien on it, such as a finance company or bank, that property and the lien terms must be listed on the lease.

A security deposit equivalent to one months rent is due upon the lease signing.  The security deposit is refunded upon vacating the unit.  The only time money is deducted from the deposit would be if there are rents or fees due, if the unit is not clean or if the unit was damaged.

First of all, rent may be paid monthly, quarterly, semi annually or annually.  The later three, tenants receive an invoice and pay from that mailing.  Payments may be made in cash, check, credit or debit card; and done so in person, by mail or by phone. A popular method is automatic payment by credit/debit card. This practice eliminates forgetfulness, and avoids late charges. Those who pay annually enjoy a free month; pay for eleven and get twelve months.
