I accepted and once I had been moved in and was signing contracts, suddenly a forced 'mandatory' insurance tariff was tacked onto the bill. This was not hinted at nor spoken of until after the move in and at the end of paperwork. I was told that if I refused the insurance I would need to vacate immediately. To avoid this giant hassle I accepted the now inflated price and complained to customer service management. My complaint wasn't resolved nor were customer service polite in handling the matter.
After a few months in the facility there were two separate incidences of flooding, due to negligence on maintaining the building. As I was located on the lower floor I had at least $2000 worth of damage to my property. Manhattan Mini Storage forced all customers on this floor to evacuate but did not offer rooms at the same prices. I had to fight hard for a smaller room on a higher floor that was slightly more expensive.
To top this off, they would not pay for the damages above the $1000 the insurance allocated, even though all damages were due to gross negligence on their part with building maintenance.
The only reason I did not take this to court is because the cost would not have been worth it. I am doing everything in my power to have their company name smeared.
