Facility Status Update – How we plan to help

Dear Valued Customer:

As mentioned, we do not appear to have sustained any flood or windstorm damage at the storage facility. Numerous tenants have come in to check on their units and contents and we have not heard of any damage.

The destruction and losses caused by Hurricane Harvey are unprecedented. We are very saddened by some of the stories we have heard and the footage we have seen on television. Many people in the area lost their homes and belongings, vehicles, and/or their jobs. Our thoughts and prayers are with you if you were one of these people. If you fall into this category, please call the office and let us know. To assist you, we will waive all late fees, lien fees, cut lock fees, and advertising fees for the month of September. We will also suspend lien – foreclosure proceedings on your storage unit for September. We will also work out a payment plan with you. Note that these steps are not automatic and not for customers that were not impacted as stated above. For customers that have lost their homes, belongings, vehicles, or jobs due to Hurricane Harvey, you must call the office and request this assistance.

Our sincere hope is that you were not significantly impacted by the hurricane but if you were, we will try to help.

Best Regards,

Alma Giner, Manager

Abel Giner, Manager

Bill Gibbs, Owner

Our thoughts and prayers are with you all

During this unprecedented storm, all that truly matters is the safety and well-being of everyone. I believe that just about everyone has been impacted to some degree by this storm but I sincerely hope that its effect on you is minimal. I was hoping we would catch a break with the rain but unfortunately, we will still have at least a few more days to deal with this.

A brief update on the status of the storage facility. As I communicated on Saturday, we lost power at the facility for about 8-9 hours due to a downed power line from a fallen tree down the street. Fortunately, an outstanding crew from Centerpoint Energy repaired the lines and power was restored before evening. As of right now, we still have power. It does not appear that we have had any water infiltration in any of the storage units. We can’t be 100% sure, but as of right now we do not see any evidence of flood damage. I hope that remains to be the case going forward and that your items remain safe and dry.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you and with all emergency personnel working hard to help those in need. Please be safe.

Best Regards,

Bill

No Late Fee Guarantee!, Payment Options

No Late Fee Guarantee!, Payment Options

Come to the office and fill out a form to have your monthly rent automatically charged to your credit/debit card or withdrawn from your checking account on the first of each month. You won’t have to remember to or hassle with making a payment and, better yet, you won’t be charged late fees (as long as the charge goes through successfully). Many of our customers have taken advantage of the convenience of this automated payment program. You can cancel it at any time and it is automatically cancelled after you notify us that you have moved out of your storage unit. If payment on the first of each month is a problem for you, please talk to our manager. In special situations, we may approve an alternate date for the charge as long as it is before the tenth day of the month (when late fees are first applied). Read More
