For as long as the Fees and all other costs are paid up to date, the Owner licences the Client to use the unit for the storage of goods in accordance with these terms and conditions during the contract period. The minimum period of storage is 1 month on signature of this contract. The Client must ensure that the unit is locked at all times when they are not on site.
The Client must pay in advance for the storage which will be calculated initially pro-rata for the remainder of the month and thereafter as a monthly payment due by the first of each following month. A deposit will be required for the Container (to include a lock and key), which will be refunded within 21 days of terminating the agreement if the Container is left as when it was first occupied by the Client. This contract will be self-renewing month by month unless a final date is specified.
The Client must keep the key(s) safe. No copies may be made of the key(s). Loss of keys will incur a £55 charge as a new lock will need to be fitted to the Container for security. After the termination of this Licence charges will be applied until the key is returned. For any additional keys the charge will be £12.
The Client is not permitted to use additional locks on the Owners containers.
Change of Fees
The Owner may change the fees at any time by providing the Client with written notice. The new fees shall take effect on the first due date occurring and not less than 1 month after the date of notice to the last known address or email address.
Late Payments or Failure to Pay
The Client must pay the Owner the full amount owing each month.
Your licence will be revoked if your payment is late on more than two occasions.
Any outstanding monies will be treated as unpaid fees and liable to the following: -
If fees are not paid in full within the ten days following the due date the Client will be liable to a £35 administration charge and an additional lock fitted to stop access.
If the Client has not made payment one full month after the due date, the Owner will refuse the Client access to their goods held in storage and refuse access to the site as a whole until all payments are received and up to date. If 2 months of full consecutive fees are unpaid the Owner has a right to claim possession of the contents of the storage unit to sell and pass all ownership of the contents or otherwise dispose of the contents. The proceeds of the sale will be firstly paid to cover the costs incurred by the Owner and secondly in discharging the debt and holding any balance for the Client (no interest will be accrued).
The Owner has the right to remove the goods to ensure the Container is available for immediate use.
The Client is liable for any costs incurred in administering the debt collection and/or sale process of goods. If the proceeds of sale are insufficient to discharge all or any part of the debt, the Client is liable to pay the balance outstanding within seven days.
If the contents of the unit cannot be sold for any reason whatsoever, the Owner is authorised to treat them as abandoned goods and to destroy or otherwise dispose of them at the Clients cost. The Owner reserves the right to continue to charge rental for the storage unit until the contents are sold or removed, the debt is paid in full, keys are returned and the unit is in a fit state for rental. The Owner reserves the right to use a debt collection agency and/ or to pass the debt to a third party and follow all legal processes to ensure the debt is discharged.
