Accessible Customer Service Plan
Providing Goods and Services to People with Disabilities
Apple Self Storage is committed to excellence in serving all customers including people with disabilities.
We will ensure that our staff is trained with various assistive devices we have on site or that we provide, that may be used by customers with disabilities while accessing our goods or services.
We will communicate with people with disabilities in ways that take into account their disability.
We welcome people with disabilities and their service animals. Service animals are allowed on the parts of our premises that are open to the public.
A person with a disability who is accompanied by a support person will be allowed to have that person accompany them on our premises. There will be no additional charge for any service that will require your support person with you.
