I live in Houston Texas and during the period 8/25/17 the Houston area was undergoing/preparing for Hurricane Harvey a category 4 Hurricane; Having a storage space at 10220 Beechnut in Houston TX. I store my portable generator and other camping gear, extra coolers, grills ect.
This equipment is extremely useful in situations where my home may lose power. On Friday 8/25/17 having knowledge that a Hurricane category 4 was heading my way I proceeded to go to my storage facility to retrieve my portable generator and additional equipment to sustain my family through the storm. When I arrived at 2:00 pm on Friday 8/25 one day before the storm was expected to hit the Houston area, this facility had a sign up that stated we will be closing at 12:00PM due to the pending storm and were NOT GRANTING ACCESS to its customers, they were inside the office and they had disabled the access code to the entry gate. There were several customers waiting at the gate because no communication was sent out prior to arrival where no access was being permitted.
As you would imagine the customers were irate and the facility gave o reason for the unwarranted and unexpected access for their customers to their personal items stored with the facility. FOR THIS REASON I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS FACILITY TO ANYONE. Any Business that would place its customers in a situation where they could not ensure their safety of the safety of family members is DESPICABLE.
There was no logical reason for this facility to be closed 24 hours before a hurricane was to hit the area where they disallowed access to their customers access to their own personal items stored at this facility. If you need additional information regarding this facility please email me at email@example.com * Again Note this action was at least 24 hours BEFORE the storm was expected to hit the area, and NO cummuncation was provided to their customers...
