Important Information Regarding Renting a Unit


Leases are flexible and can be written for a term of as short as one month.  Lease terms begin on the day of signing.


One form of photo ID is required when renting a unit

First month rent is required at the time of signing

Payment is accepted by most major credit cards as well as personal/corporate checks.  Multiple payment options are available including automatic payment each month from a credit card.

A minimum of 15 days written notice is required prior to vacating.  Your last months rental payment will be prorated.

Either a key lock or a combination lock is required at the time of signing.  We recommend that you purchase a lock from our sales office as not all lock sizes will fit our units.

You will have access to your unit as soon as the lease is executed and intial payments are made.

If you have any questions please contact our on site manager at 717-872-0582 or Email:



While Peace of Mind Self Storage is incredibly flexible regarding what you can store, there are several items that are not permitted to be stored in the units.  If you have any questions regarding what can and cannot be stored in the units please contact the onsite manager.


The most common restrictions include:


Inflammable or Combustible Materials

These types of materials will pose very real danger to the entire facility and personnel if stored within a unit, not to mention your own stored items if there is an accident.  The list of restrictions includes gas, fuel, fireworks etc.  Please empty all fuel tanks, even your lawnmower or other small machinery, before placing these items in self storage.


Animals or Animal Products

Storing pets or other animals in the units is not permitted.  People have in the past attempted to 'store' their pets in self storage, as they believe they can access them for feeding and care as necessary. This is quite obviously cruel and could result in prosecution. Animal products are also not allowed in self storage as they will attract vermin.


Illegal or stolen goods

No reputable self storage provider will allow you to store illegal or stolen goods on their premises; the same holds true for Peace of Mind Self Storage.



Peace of Mind Self Storage does allow for firearms to be stored in the units; however, you will have to secure your weapons with trigger locks or other similar security features.  Ammunition of any kind is not permitted to be stored at Peace of Mind Self Storage.



Peace of Mind Self Storage does not permit the storage of fragrant items or anything that will cause a significant odor on site.



Aerosols or pressurized inflammable materials are not permitted to be stored at Peace of Mind Self Storage.  There is the possibility that these items could burst and cause accidents, this is especially true considering most aerosols are extremely flammable.


Hazardous Materials

Peace of Mind Self Storage does not allow the storage of hazardous, toxic or chemical materials on site as these items can cause very real damage if they spill or if there is a fire.



Please do not store plants or any other living things in a self storage unit as they will attract insects and pests.


The list presented above is not all inclusive and is meant to be a general guide as to what types of items are not permitted.


Again, if you have any doubt as to whether or not the item you wish to store is permitted by Peace of Mind Self Storage please contact the on site manager.




Peace of Mind Self Storage DOES NOT provide insurance for the goods that are stored within the facility.  Peace of Mind Self Storage's insurance covers the facility itself and not the items contained within the rented storage units or on the property.


Peace of Mind Self Storage strongly recommends that you contact your home insurer to see if the items you place in the facility will be covered by your domestic home contents policy. It may be that you are fully covered for goods stored away from home or you may be able to pay an additional small premium to get such coverage. This could well be cheaper than taking out a separate insurance policy.  Again, Peace of Mind Self Storage does not insure your individual belongings that are stored within a unit or on the property.


Peace of Mind Self Storage does not require that you insure your belongs; however, we STRONGLY recommend you seek insurance on belongings stored within a unit or on the property; again, this coverage may already be provided by your current homeowners policy or may be available from your current homeowners insurance provider for a small fee.  Peace of Mind Self Storage has taken measures to protect your belongings; however if a fire, flood, theft or any other such negative consequence should occur to your belongings the cost of replacing/repairing any belongings stored in a unit or on the property is born by you and/or the insurance coverage you have put in place. 


A key point to remember is that your insurance needs will change if you add to or remove items from self storage. Check with your insurance provider before taking out a policy and make sure that the policy can be changed over time as your requirements change.


Please speak with the onsite manager if you have questions; Peace of Mind Self Storage can provide you with the contact information for agencies that will likely be able to satisfy your self storage insurance needs.
