Storage irritation

Since my storage area was emptied on Sunday, I thought it would be a good idea to call Guardian Self Storage to make sure all was fine and dandy for my not getting billed in December. Of course I managed to call during their lunch time so I’m waiting for a call back. That is only to be expected.

What was not to be expected was the statement that I needed to give 10 days written notice to move out. Excuse me? Every other storage place I’ve ever dealt with, you moved out, swept the floor and left the locker unlocked. I’ve even dealt with places where you never told them you were leaving, they just figured it out. Yes I think that is a little extreme in the no contact side, but needing a 10 day notice to move out of public storage? I think that’s just a little extreme. We’ll see what happens. I just hope I don’t end up paying for December since I have other plans for that money.

Yes, I know, I know, it was probably on the original contract which I signed, but either I didn’t read it all the way through or I forgot over the more than a year I’ve had the locker. Either way it makes me think twice about suggesting someone use their service even though I’ve been pretty happy with them up til now.

edited to say: I just called back and they said not to worry about it. PC I told them to be expecting your call as well.
