Benefits of AutoPay

Published on 11/16/2022

Ever wanted to set up an automatic payment plan but hesitated because you've never done it before? If your answer is yes, you're not alone. Anyone who has set up an AutoPay plan may tell you that it can be scary at first, but it's actually very beneficial and safe.
Here are 5 reasons why:

  1. Reduce the risk of identity theft. Many people consider paper bills to be more secure than electronic payments. However, experts say paper bills with names and account numbers stored in mailboxes actually pose a higher risk of identity theft than electronic payments.

  1. Lower cost. Checks, stamps, ATMS and your time - four things that are not free. However, AutoPay is. Paper billing is spending more money for less convenience.

  1. Stay on time. Late payments can lower your credit score, and late fees aren't fun either. Autopay enables hassle-free and timely payments.

  1. Peace of mind. You never have to miss a payment and you can add ‘stress’ to the list of things you won’t miss when you set up automatic payments. Your amount that you have to pay will automatically come out on the same day of your choice each month.

Setting up automatic payments at your storage facility will allow you to worry less and keep you from jolting out of bed in the morning when you realize you forgot to pay for your storage unit.

Although AutoPay is convenient and secure, it may not be for everyone. If you don’t have a bank account or your income is very irregular, it may not be the ideal payment system for you.
