What To Do If You Are Locked Out Of Your Storage Unit?

Moving stuff out of the house to a storage unit is essential and in some case even necessary. It can go easy or it can go wrong and also be very stressful. During a move it is easy to misplace items like keys, chargers and jewelry. 

If you find yourself locked out of your storage unit due to lost or misplaced keys, you may need the help of a professional locksmith for an on time solution.

Damage-Free Storage Unit Lock Removal

When selecting a locksmith to access your storage unit it important to consider if they are able to work without causing damages which could cost you money. 

Our certified locksmiths are experienced in all types of storage unit locks such as Mortise Locks, ACE II Locks and Round Disc Locks. With the right tools and techniques, our trained technicians can open your storage unit without causing any damage to the door and lock system.

Get a New Lock

Once your lock has been removed by our locksmiths, you will need to purchase a new one. Replacement locks are available online or from the local storage facility and typically cost between $8$18. It is important to bring this new lock with you when scheduling an appointment as it will ensure that your belongings remain secure once the job is complete.

What Documents Should You Bring With You?

Before we are able to access your unit proof of ownership is required. This verification can be provided with a valid state ID such as a Driver’s License or Passport along with a copy of the current storage lease agreement (which can generally be obtained from the front desk). 

In cases where payments have been missed or forgotten we may not be able to provide our services until authorization has been given by the storage facility representative confirming ownership rights.
