Label your boxes/totes. Wrap all fragile items separately. Pack these items tightly into reinforced boxes. Mark items as fragile as needed.

The items you store are not covered by our insurance. Blue Lagoon Storage is not responsible for any loss or damage to your property. We suggest you check coverage on your homeowner’s or renter’s policy. Blue Lagoon offers insurance through a third party, which can be added at any time. See office for details.

The tenant is responsible for the contents of their unit. Please see above question regarding insuring the contents of the unit.

Rent is due on, or before, the 1st of each month. Blue Lagoon does offer a ten day grace period. If the rent is not paid by the 10th, on the 11th day, late fees will be added to your account and you will be denied access to your unit.

We suggest the use of wood strips (or pallets) on the floor to prevent any moisture. If you are using a combination of plastic containers and cardboard, place the cardboard boxes on top of the plastic containers.
