Q. Does Rowley storage provide insurance coverage?
A. No, Rowley storage does not provide insurance coverage on any stored property.  You are required to insure your belongings stored at limits determined by you and at your expense.  Should you choose not to maintain such insurance, you agree that you are self-insuring.  Please contact your insurance provider to add the storage location onto a homeowner’s, renter’s, or business policy you already have.

Q. Do I need to bring my own padlock?
A. Yes, for security reasons locks are required on all storage units.  Padlocks are available for purchase at the Rowley storage office.

Q. Can I bring my own shelves?
A. Yes, you may add free-standing shelving to a unit in order to help keep your storage space neat and organized. Shelving attached to unit walls is not permitted. Depending upon what you are storing, you may also want to utilize pallets and/or boxes.

Rowley storage is not climate controlled.  Keep in mind we are in the PNW and store accordingly.

Q. Is there lighting and electrical outlets in the storage units?
A.  Ceiling lighting is not available in mini-units and some garage style units.  There is typically one electrical outlet, to be used only for the purpose of additional lighting while accessing the unit.

Q. What do I do when I no longer need my storage unit?
A. As a convenience, Rowley Storage enables tenants to vacate without notice. Once you have removed the contents of your unit, please contact us as we do require a signature on our vacate form and that you return keys. 

NOTE: We provide a 24 hour drop slot at our office to make this easy. A vacate form is located above the drop for ease. Once both of these items are received, this will terminate your lease with us.

My husband and I were in the process of moving from North Carolina. We came into your office to rent a storage unit and were pleased to learn you also have Boat and RV lots where we could store our motor home. Your employee’s were very attentive to our needs and made our moving experience enjoyable.
