Cities and towns normally require a time frame for storage before items can be accepted – two to three days is typical. It is advisable that the State Marshal responsible for that eviction contact the city or town manager before scheduling an eviction. Should there be a cancellation or change, the city or town official must be notified immediately.
Time Limit for Storage
Most cities and towns will permit someone a maximum of 15 days to keep their personal belongings in the storage provided. No permanent storage is offered, therefore, it is essential that permanent and suitable storage be secured before the time allowed expires. If the items are not collected by the owner within the time allowed, the city or town will either have them publicly auctioned, or removed and destroy them.
Chemicals, detergents, perishables goods, food and items considered to be a health or fire hazard, automotive parts, live plants, pets, trash and or garbage, items with insects, deodorants, medication and unwashed clothing will not be accepted by cities and towns for storage.
When items have been placed in storage there will be a collection fee by that municipality to offset the storing and other related charges. These fees must be paid in full by the owner before the items can be delivered. Owners of the stored items should first check with the city or town official on storing cost prior to collecting personal effects. Please call for a no obligation quote.
An hourly rate is charged for moving and is payable by the State Marshal or landlord upon completion. A traveling fee will also be applied. The amount depends on the distance traveled. Additional fees are for materials used for packaging. The city or town will be responsible for payment from the side walk to the designated storage facility.
We prepare an inventory list of all items collected from the tenant for storage. Large items are listed separately. Small items are placed into moving boxes. Copies of the inventory list are given to the tenant, city or town official and also the State Marshal.
