Normally, you should immediately receive both your receipt and your online rental confirmation email, which includes a copy of your Rental Agreement. If you do not see these emails in your inbox, please check your spam or junk folder. Please note that a property manager will also be contacting you shortly via telephone to confirm your rental. Additionally, you always have the option to request an electronic copy of either your Rental Agreement or your receipt any time.

A credit card is not required for reservations, in-person rentals, or for billing purposes. For monthly payments, you can pay in person with cash or debit card, or online with Interac debit at participating banks and financial institutions. You can also sign up in the rental office for our Automated Payment Plan and have funds automatically withdrawn from your bank account each month, via pre-authorized debit.

At Public Storage, you can pay in person at the location where you rent (cash, debit/credit card, money order, certified cheque), online through our website, or via Automated Payment Plan. We accept all 3 major credit cards – Visa, Master Card, and American Express – as well as Interac and Visa Debit payments (available only from participating banks and financial institutions). For extra convenience, we also give you the option to pre-authorize your monthly payments either by credit card or debit for hassle-free account management, so you’ll never have to worry about missing a payment, or incurring late fees. * Please note that payments cannot be made via telephone, and that the Public Storage Canada National Call Centre cannot process payments.

Rent at Public Storage is on a month-to-month basis; you pay for rent in full monthly segments. You may move in or move out of your space at any time during the month and you will not be tied to a long-term contract. In some situations, providing that sufficient notice is given, we may be able to prorate your rent up to the 7th day of the month. If you're interested in making such an arrangement, please contact your location's property manager for further information.

Our billing cycle is month-to-month, with no long-term contracts. You may move in or move out on any day during the month, however for simplicity, your rent is always due on the first of each month. Our monthly billing is not only convenient, but helps you save money; you make 12 rental payments in the year, compared with the 13 payments charged by many other self-storage companies with a 4-week billing cycle.

You can vacate your storage unit anytime you choose. We ask that you provide us with 2 days’ notice at the location where you rent. You can do this by simply informing one of the property managers. There is no additional paperwork you’ll need to fill out. Once you’ve removed all your items from storage, please remember to take your lock with you, so that we know you are no longer using the storage unit.

We do not require a fixed-term contract which gives you maximum flexibility. In practice, this means that you have the freedom to rent a storage unit for as little or as long as you wish. You will need to sign a rental agreement at the time you move in, which continues on a month-to-month basis until you decide to move out.

Just one dollar is, indeed, all you pay for the first month’s rent. In addition to the rent, there is a one-time administration fee of $25 as well as any applicable taxes. There are no additional costs unless you choose to purchase a lock, insurance, or other merchandise.

If you cannot reach a property manager at any of our locations you can speak to one of the storage experts at our national call center. The call center is available after rental office hours to help you, and can be reached toll-free at (877) 777-8672 during the following times: Mon – Sat: 8:00am – 10:00pm (EST) Sun: 10:00am – 6:30pm (EST) Please note that any billing inquiries relating to your account must be made directly with the property office during standard business hours.
