Does the app need cellular data (4G or 5G) to work?

What is an Unique App Token?

You will need your unique App Token to create an account. This can be found on your most recent monthly invoices.

The Unique App Token helps the app make the link with your Shurgard account to retrieve your access code, account information and payment history from our system.

What is the difference between Creating an Account and being a Guest User?

To enjoy all the app features, we strongly recommend that you create an account, or sign in if you have already created one.

Guest user mode is recommended if you wish to grant access to your family members of suppliers, as they can use the app to open gates and doors, but they won’t have access to your invoices and profile details.

How do I switch from guest mode to account mode?

To switch from guest mode to account mode, click on "guest" menu item (the last one on the right).

On top of the screen you will see an option "Sign in/Create an account". Click on it to start creating an account.

I got a message when clicking on “Sign in/ Create an account”, what does it mean?

This message simply means that we will overwrite the access codes that you have set up manually with the ones you have in your account.

How do I create an account with Google?

Select the "Create account / Sign in" option. Then select Google on the next screen. The Google email address you use must match the email address linked to your Shurgard account.

I chose to create my account using Apple, but the app is throwing an error. What do I do?

When you sign in with Apple, you must select the "Share My Email" option. This is required for the app to link your Apple ID with your Shurgard account.

In case you have chosen “Hide my email”, the account creation/sign in will not work correctly.

To fix this, you will need to:

  • Open your device “Settings”
  • Select your Apple ID account ([your name] at the top of the screen)
  • Then select "Password security"
  • Select “Sign in with Apple”

If you did not receive an email to verify your email address, please check your spam inbox, as the email might have ended up there. 

If it's not in the spam inbox, please open the app and click on "Resend verification email".

I want to create an account, but my email address or password is rejected.

Make sure the email address matches the one linked to your Shurgard account.

Also, the password you choose must consist of min. 6 characters with at least 1 lower, 1 uppercase letter, 1 special character and 1 digit.

How do I change my password?

You can only change your password if you have created an account with your email and password. This means if you used Social Sign On with Google, Apple ID or Facebook, changing password on our app is not possible.

If you have created an account with your email and password, click on the "Profile" section (the last menu item on the right, which shows your profile name) and select "Change password".

Please enter the email address that is linked to your Shurgard account and click on "Reset password". You will receive an email to reset your password if your email address is known to us.

Why do I need to enter a profile name?

This is for you to be able to tell the difference between different profiles in case you are renting more than one storage unit under different customer ID.

I’m renting multiple units at different locations. Can I set up the app so I can access all my units and invoices?

Yes. Once you have created your account, you can add more profiles if you have different Unique App Tokens on your invoices.

If you rent your units using different email addresses, you will need to create a different account for each email address and use the option "Sign out" under the "Profile" section (the last menu item on the right, which shows your profile name) to switch between different accounts.

I rent multiple storage units at Shurgard, but I only see some of them in the app.

Next to your profile name on top of the screen, click the + button to add a new profile. You will be prompted to add your new Unique App Token and enter a new profile name.

Once done, you can switch between the different profiles under the "Profile" section.
