I see that you now offer climate controlled self storage in the Shops Off Broadway (formerly Thunderbird Mall). Yes, we are offering climate or temperature controlled storage. There are great reasons to use either climate controlled storage or traditional storage. The biggest, most obvious advantage of climate controlled storage is that it is heated in the winter and cooled in the summer. Another advantage is security. Each tenant gets a unique door code that will allow them entry into the building. Once inside, each storage unit is still locked up providing that next level of security. Another advantage is lighting. The facility has LED lights outside near each entrance door and LED lights inside. It is much better lit than the typical traditional storage unit. Adding to that security is the extensive use of cameras. With an abundance of indoor and outdoor cameras deterring crimes before they happen. You should chose if traditional or climate controlled suits your needs better. See our blog post on the advantages and disadvantages of each.

Does climate (temperature) controlled storage cost more? Yes, due to many factors such as heating and cooling such a large space, the cost of climate controlled storage is higher than traditional storage. There are great reasons to use each of the types of storage. You should chose if traditional or climate controlled suits your needs better. See our blog post on the advantages and disadvantages of each.

I have an account but can't login. What is wrong?  One common issue is that you may have clicked on another location other than where your possessions are stored. For example, if your items are stored in Rice Lake - North and you accidentally clicked the "Login" button for Rice Lake - South, you will not be able to login. If you have selected the correct location but have forgotten your password, you can click the "Forgot your password link" on the login page. You will need the email address that you set up your account with for this. This is the email address where you receive email communications from us. If you have forgotten your username, you can give us a call during normal business hours and we can verify your identity and give you your username. We can't see your password, so we can't give you that but can reset it for you.

How can I avoid late fees?  The obvious answer to this is to pay on time.  With that said, we are all busy and sometimes, life gets away from us and we are left wondering where did the time go?  The best way to avoid late fees is to set up an automatic payment.  You can do this on our website using  a debit or credit card, ACH (direct debit from your checking account.) We prefer debit cards as the fees for processing are much lower and help us keep our rates low. 

How much will a storage unit hold? This varies by the size of the unit that you rent as well as your ability to pack well. Please refer to our Space Estimator page to give you an idea of how much each size will hold.             

Do you have any openings? 
Please see our current openings by clicking on Locations. Choose which of our locations you would like to rent at and you will see what sizes are available and how much the monthly rent is. You can then follow the easy steps to rent your storage unit online!  If the size that you are looking for is full, it will say Wait List, you can click on that to add yourself to the wait list. We will contact you when a unit the size you need becomes available. If you are not able to wait for the size you need to be available, you may have to select another size or try one of our other locations by just clicking Locations once again.

I am an existing customer, how can I rent another unit? If you need additional storage unit at the same location as you currently have a unit, you can just login to your account and click "Rent Unit". The system will walk you through a few easy steps to rent your unit. If you need a unit at a different location than where you currently have a unit, you will need to click Locations and set up a new account at that location. You can use the same username and password if you would like but they will be separate accounts. 

I have seen Storage Wars on TV. Will you sell my stored possessions? We only sell the possessions of those who do not pay their rent. Keep your account current and there will be no problems. We recommend an automatic payment plan to avoid late fees and/or the sale of your stored possessions.  

I am interested in buying the contents of storage units, do you ever have storage auctions?  Despite our efforts to the contrary, sometimes tenants do not pay their rent and we have to sell their stored items, you can go to our Storage Lien Sales page to see if we currently have any sales going on.

Can you notify me of sales as they come up? All you have to do is Contact Us or send an email to info@eclipseselfstorage.com and request to be added to the lien sale mailing list. Every time we have a lien sale at any of our locations we will send you an email notification of the sale. You can cancel at anytime by letting us know you no longer wish to receive notifications.
