Homeless Attempt to Live in Oahu Self-Storage Units


As the number of homeless people on Oahu, Hawaii, increases to the thousands, self-storage companies are struggling to keep them from living in their units. Using a storage unit as a residence is not allowed and is usually stipulated in a facility’s rental agreement.
Tony Goulart, operations manager for Hawaii Self Storage, the state’s largest storage operator, said that while the company empathizes with the homeless, it does not condone living in units. One of the rules for renting a unit at one of the company’s properties is that it is not to be used as a domicile. Some homeless people do rent units to store their belongings, but they are not supposed to sleep in them.
Hawaii Self Storage is currently offering four free months of storage through its Transition Assistance Program to those who can prove they are experiencing residential challenges.
