STANDARD STORAGE LICENCE AGREEMENT: TERMS AND CONDITIONS
 
 
 
1. So long as all fees are paid up to date, You: (a) are licensed to store Goods in the Self Storage Unit allocated to You by Smartbox Self Storage Limited from time to time and only in that Self Storage Unit; (b) are deemed to have knowledge of the Goods in the Self Storage Unit; and (c) warrant that You are the owner of the Goods in the Self Storage Unit and/or entitled at law to deal with them in accordance with all aspects of this Agreement as agent for the owner.

 2. Smartbox Self Storage Limited: (a) does not have and will not be deemed to have knowledge of the Goods; (b) is not a bailee, custodian or warehouseman of the Goods and You acknowledge that Smartbox Self Storage Limited does not take possession of the Goods; and (c) does not grant any lease or tenancy of the Self Storage Unit.

 3. This Agreement will come into existence between Smartbox Self Storage Limited and You when Smartbox Self Storage Limited notifies You it has accepted the order by signing the cover sheet. The Storage Period will begin on the date agreed with You during the order process. 
 
COST:

 4.
You must pay the agreed Deposit on signing this Agreement. The Deposit (or the balance of it after any appropriate deductions for unpaid Fees, repairs, cleaning or other charges to put right any breach of this Agreement by You) will be refunded by cheque or electronic transfer within 21 days of termination of this Agreement.

 5. You are responsible to pay: (a) the Storage Fee (being the amount set out in the cover sheet or as most recently notified to You by Smartbox Self Storage Limited). Smartbox Self Storage Limited will take the first payment on acceptance of Your order and will take subsequent payments in advance on the first day of each Storage Period (‘Due Date’). It is Your responsibility to see that payment is made directly to Smartbox Self Storage Limited on time and in full throughout the period of storage. You must arrange to pay the Storage Fee by direct debit so you’re your designated bank account will be charged automatically on each Due Date. Smartbox Self Storage Limited does not normally bill for fees but will issue an electronic invoice following payment. Any Storage Fees not paid by direct debit may not be credited to Your account and Smartbox Self Storage Limited shall have no liability to and shall be indemnified by You if Smartbox Self Storage Limited takes steps to enforce the Agreement (including the sale of Goods) due to Your failure to pay by direct debit. Smartbox Self Storage Limited will not accept that payment has been made until it has received cleared funds; (b) a Late Payment Fee each time a payment is late or cancelled; (c) any costs incurred by Smartbox Self Storage Limited in collecting late or unpaid Storage Fees, or in enforcing this Agreement in any way, including but not limited to postal, telephone, unit inventory, debt collection, personnel and/or default action costs and associated legal and professional fees; (d) any government taxes or charges (including any value added tax or insurance premium tax) levied on any supplies made under this Agreement; and (e) the Cleaning Fee or charges for repairs, to be invoiced at Smartbox Self Storage Limited’s discretion as per Condition 20;. Where You have more than one storage container agreement with Smartbox Self Storage Limited, all will form one account and Smartbox Self Storage Limited may in its sole discretion apply any payment made by You or on Your behalf on this Agreement against the oldest amount due from You to Smartbox Self Storage Limited on any agreement in the account. 
 
DEFAULT – RIGHT TO SELL OR DISPOSE OF GOODS:
 
 
6. Smartbox Self Storage Limited takes the issue of prompt payment seriously and has a right of lien, which is a right to seize and sell or otherwise dispose of some or all of the Goods as security for Your obligation to make payments under this Agreement. If any sum owing to Smartbox Self Storage Limited and other fees related to it are not paid when due (‘Debt’), You authorise Smartbox Self Storage Limited without further notice to: (a) refuse You and Your Agents access to the Goods, the Self Storage Unit and the Facility and overlock the Self Storage Unit until the Debt has been paid in full; (b) enter the Self Storage Unit and inspect and/or remove the Goods to another unit or site and to charge You for all reasonable costs of doing so on any number of occasions; and (c) apply the Deposit against the Debt and, if insufficient to clear it in full, hold onto and/or ultimately sell or dispose of some or all of the Goods in accordance with Conditions 8 to 10. You acknowledge that (a) Smartbox Self Storage Limited shall be entitled to continue to charge for storage from the date that the Debt becomes due until payment is made in full or the Goods are sold or disposed of; (b) Smartbox Self Storage Limited will sell the Goods as if Smartbox Self Storage Limited was the owner and will pass all rights of ownership in the Goods to the buyer; and (c) if You do not pay fees on the Due Date, the value of any discounts and special offers (including periods of free storage) which You have received will be payable by You in full.

 7 On expiry or termination of this Agreement, if You fail to remove all Goods from the Self Storage Unit, Smartbox Self Storage Limited is authorised to treat the Goods as abandoned and may sell or dispose of all Goods by any means in accordance with Conditions 8 to 10. You are liable for Storage Fees for the period from abandonment to the sale or disposal of the Goods together with any costs of disposal (Debt).

 8. Before Smartbox Self Storage Limited sells or disposes of the Goods, it will give You notice in writing directing You to pay (if You are in default) or collect the Goods (if they are treated as abandoned). This notice will be sent by registered or recorded delivery to the postal address last notified by You to Smartbox Self Storage Limited in writing by letter or by email. If no address within the UK has been provided, Smartbox Self Storage Limited will use any land or email address or social media details it holds for You and any ACP. If You fail to pay the Debt and/or collect the Goods (as appropriate) Smartbox Self Storage Limited will access the Self Storage Unit and begin the process to sell or dispose of the Goods. You consent to and authorise the sale or disposal of all Goods without further notice regardless of their nature, content or value. Smartbox Self Storage Limited will sell the Goods for the best price reasonably available in the open market, taking into account the costs of sale. Smartbox Self Storage Limited may also require payment of default action costs, including any costs associated with accessing the Self Storage Unit and disposal or sale of the Goods, which shall be added to the Debt.

 9. Sale proceeds will be applied first against the cost of removal and sale of Goods and second to pay the Debt. If sale proceeds do not discharge all of these costs and the Debt, You must pay Smartbox Self Storage Limited the balance within 7 days of a written demand from Smartbox Self Storage Limited. Smartbox Self Storage Limited may take action to recover the balance and any legal and administration costs incurred in doing so. If sale proceeds exceed the amount due from You, Smartbox Self Storage Limited will hold the balance for You but no interest will be payable on it.

 10. If, in the opinion of Smartbox Self Storage Limited and entirely at Smartbox Self Storage Limited’s discretion, the Goods are either not saleable, fail to sell when offered for sale, or are not of sufficient value to warrant the expense of attempting to sell, You authorise Smartbox Self Storage Limited to treat the Goods as abandoned and Smartbox Self Storage Limited may dispose of all Goods by any means at Your cost. Smartbox Self Storage Limited may dispose of the Goods at Smartbox Self Storage Limited’s discretion in the event that (a) Goods are damaged due to fire, flood or other event that has rendered them, in the opinion of the Smartbox Self Storage Limited, severely damaged, of no commercial value, or dangerous to persons or property, or (b) Goods may contain personal data belonging to You or others. Smartbox Self Storage Limited does not need Your prior approval to take this action but will send Notice to You within 7 days of assessing damaged Goods. 
 
11. Any items left unattended in common areas or outside Your Self Storage Unit at any time shall be treated as abandoned and may at Smartbox Self Storage Limited’s discretion be moved, sold or disposed of immediately with no liability to Smartbox Self Storage Limited. If such action is required by Smartbox Self Storage Limited, You will be liable for the full costs of removal and disposal of such goods by Smartbox Self Storage Limited.
 
ACCESS:

 12.
You have the right to access the Self Storage Unit during Access Hours as posted by Smartbox Self Storage Limited and subject to the terms of this Agreement. Smartbox Self Storage Limited will try to provide advance warning of changes to Access Hours by notice at the Facility and/or by SMS or email but reserves the right to change Access Hours temporarily to other reasonable times without giving prior notice. 
 
13. Only You or others authorised or accompanied by You (Your Agents) may access the Self Storage Unit. You are responsible for and liable to Smartbox Self Storage Limited and other users of the Facility for Your own actions and those of Your Agents.

 14. Smartbox Self Storage Limited may refuse You access to the Self Storage Unit and/or the Facility where moneys are owing by You to Smartbox Self Storage Limited, whether a formal demand for payment has been made or not, or if Smartbox Self Storage Limited considers the safety or security of any person, unit or goods on or at the Facility has been threatened or may be put at risk.

 15. You should not leave a key with or permit access to the Self Storage Unit to any person other than Your own Agent who is responsible to You and subject to Your control. If You do so, it is at Your own risk.

Smartbox Self Storage Limited will not be responsible for securing any unlocked Self Storage Unit. You are not permitted to apply a padlock or other device to the Self Storage Unit in Smartbox Self Storage Limited overlocking position and Smartbox Self Storage Limited may have any such padlock or device forcefully cut off at Your expense. Where applicable, You will secure the external gates and/or doors of the Facility.

21. You must (and ensure that Your Agents) use reasonable care on site and have respect for the Facility and other unit users, inform Smartbox Self Storage Limited of any damage or defect immediately it is discovered and comply with the reasonable directions of Smartbox Self Storage Limited’s employees, agents and contractors and any other regulations or policies for the use, safety and security of the Facility as Smartbox Self Storage Limited shall issue periodically.

22. This Agreement does not confer on You any right to exclusive possession of the Self Storage Unit and Smartbox Self Storage Limited reserves the right to relocate You to another Self Storage Unit not smaller than the current Self Storage Unit: (a) by giving 14 days’ notice during which You can elect to terminate this Agreement under Condition 37; or (b) on shorter notice if an incident occurs that requires the Self Storage Unit or section where it is located to be closed or sealed off. In these circumstances, Smartbox Self Storage Limited will pay Your reasonable costs of removal if approved in writing by Smartbox Self Storage Limited before removal. If You do not arrange removal by the date specified in Smartbox Self Storage Limited’s notice, then You authorise Smartbox Self Storage Limited and its agents to enter the Self Storage Unit and move the Goods as Your agent on Your behalf and at Your risk (except for damage caused wilfully or negligently which is subject to the limitations in Condition 27). Following removal this Agreement will be varied by substitution of the new Self Storage Unit number but otherwise continues on the same terms at the storage rates in force for the original Self Storage Unit at the time of the removal.

23 You must ensure the Self Storage Unit is suitable for the storage of the Goods intended to be stored in it and You are advised to inspect the Self Storage Unit before storing Goods and periodically during the storage period. Smartbox Self Storage Limited makes no warranty or representation that any unit is suitable for any particular goods and accepts no liability in this regard. Self Storage Unit sizes are approximate. If You have exact requirements, You must check with Smartbox Self Storage Limited before signing this Agreement as, by signing, You agree to the actual size of the Self Storage Unit and not any represented unit size. 

24 Smartbox Self Storage Limited may refuse storage of any Goods or require You to remove Goods if in Smartbox Self Storage Limited’s opinion storage of such Goods creates a risk to the safety of any person or property. 

25 You must give notice to the Smartbox Self Storage Limited in writing of the change of any contact details on this Agreement for You or the ACP within 48 hours of any change. You agree Smartbox Self Storage Limited is entitled to discuss any default by You with the ACP registered on the front of this Agreement.

Smartbox Self Storage Limited will not be liable for any loss or damages suffered by You as a result of You not being able to access the Facility or the Self Storage Unit, regardless of the cause.

 27. The Goods are stored at Your sole risk and responsibility and You shall be responsible for and bear the risk of any and all theft, damage to, and deterioration of the Goods caused by any reason. Smartbox Self Storage Limited excludes all liability in respect of (a) loss or damage to Your business, if any, including consequential loss, lost profits or business interruption; (b) loss of or damage to Goods or any claim for return of the Storage Fees except where this results from Smartbox Self Storage Limited’s negligence or breach of contract, in which case Smartbox Self Storage Limited’s liability will be limited to the sum of £100 in total.

 28 Subject to clause 44 if applicable, Smartbox Self Storage Limited does not insure the Goods and it is a condition of this Agreement that the Goods remain adequately insured at all times for their Replacement Value (as set out on the cover sheet) while they are in storage. You warrant that such cover is in place, will not lapse and that the aggregate value of Goods in the Self Storage Unit from time to time will not exceed the insured value. Smartbox Self Storage Limited does not give any advice concerning insurance cover given by any policy and You must make Your own judgment as to adequacy of cover even when arranged by Smartbox Self Storage Limited. Inspection of any insurance documents provided by You to demonstrate cover does not mean Smartbox Self Storage Limited has approved the cover or confirmed it is sufficient.

 29. It will be Your responsibility to compensate Smartbox Self Storage Limited for the full amount of all claims, liabilities, demands, damages, costs and expenses (including any reasonably incurred legal and professional fees) incurred by Smartbox Self Storage Limited or third parties (Liabilities) resulting from or incidental to (a) the use of the Self Storage Unit (including but not limited to the ownership or storage of Goods in the Self Storage Unit, the Goods themselves and/or accessing the Facility) or (b) breach of this Agreement by You or any of Your Agents or (c) enforcement of any of the terms of this Agreement.

 30. You agree to comply with this Agreement and all laws and regulations relevant to the use of the Self Storage Unit. This includes laws relating to material which is stored and the manner in which it is stored. You will be responsible for all Liabilities resulting from such a breach. 
 
31. If Smartbox Self Storage Limited has reason to believe that You are not complying with all relevant laws Smartbox Self Storage Limited may take any action it considers necessary, including, but not limited to, action outlined in Conditions 16 and 37, contacting, cooperating with and/or submitting Goods to relevant authorities, and/or immediately disposing of or removing Goods at Your expense. You agree that Smartbox Self Storage Limited may take such action at any time even though Smartbox Self Storage Limited could have acted earlier. 
 
32. Smartbox Self Storage Limited shall not be considered to be in breach of this Agreement nor liable for any delay in performing or failure to perform any of its obligations under this Agreement or any resulting loss or damage to Goods if such delay, failure, loss or damage results from events, circumstances or causes beyond Smartbox Self Storage Limited’s reasonable control. Such circumstances include (but are not limited to) any Act of God, riot, strike or lock-out, trade dispute or labour disturbance, accident, breakdown of plant or machinery, fire, flood, shortage of labour, materials or transport, electrical power failures, threat of or actual terrorism or environmental or health emergency or hazard or recommended restrictions, or entry into any unit including the Self Storage Unit or the Facility by, or arrest or seizure or confiscation of Goods by, competent authorities.
