16.4 All charges for storage services are payable in advance.

16.6 On giving you 28 days' notice we are entitled to require you to remove your goods from our custody and pay all money due to us. Any such notice will tell you that we will dispose of your goods three months thereafter if you fail to pay all outstanding sums due to us and, in that event, we will do so without further notice. The cost of the sale or disposal will be charged to you. The net proceeds will be credited to your account and any eventual surplus will be paid to you without interest.
16.7 If your payments are up to date we will not end this contract except by giving you three calendar months' notice in writing.
