Public Storage - They Got Your Stuff - Now They Raise The Rent After 6 Months!
MAHOPAC, NEW YORK -- These guys are BAD BUSINESS!!! When I made the reservation, I inquired about how much they would raise the rent on my $236.00/month unit every year. I was told that a lot of the time, they don't even raise it. Well, imagine my surprise when, after only 6 months, they sent me a notice that they would be raising the cost of my unit by $25.00/month after only SIX MONTHS!!! You know what that screams to me? It screams "WE'RE GOING TO RIP YOU OFF NOW THAT WE HAVE YOUR STUFF"!!!!!!!
Someone should let Public Storage know that it's customary and expected to have a rate increase after one year. NOT SIX MONTHS! When you call the customer service line they tell you that your unit is priced "under market value" and they can raise it up to market value whenever they want (month to month). So does that mean that they can get you in for a really cheap price and after six months, raise it up to whatever they want or claim the market value is?
Please remember this, people. Make sure you know exactly what these rip off artists are going to charge you and when they are going to start raising the rates. They are sneaky! They are thieves and don't even try to hide it. Watch out!
