No Warranties, expressed or implied are given by the lessor.

Waiver: Lessor’s agents and employees do not have authority to waive, amend or terminate this agreement or to make promises, representations or agreements which impose any duties of security or obligations on Lessor unless done in writing in the Special Provision section.
Term and Renewal: The Rental Agreement automatically continues on a six month lease after the initial lease Paid Thru date. This is a lease, and does not create a bailment between the tenant and Lessor. You agree to abide by and accept the lease.
Tenant is insured up to $5,000 automatically on us for their first-year lease. After that, renewals are paid by tenant.
One of the principle benefits of becoming a SecurePlus facility is that we now provide $5,000 of insurance on each box. The insurance, offered by SDBIC, is underwritten by AXA Insurance Company, one of the largest insurance compaines in the world. A policy will be issued directly in the name of each box renter so you have a direct relationship in the event of a loss. You also have the option to obtain additional insurance for your box at below market rates without having to disclose what is being stored in your box, up front. Additional information available with SDBIC.
