Lahaina Branch Safe Deposit Box Information
Our team has completed the relocation of safe deposit boxes from our Lahaina Branch to our Wailuku Branch, ensuring their secure storage. During this transition, Wailuku Branch will temporarily close its doors to exclusively accommodate safe deposit box customers from Lahaina Branch starting from Tuesday, September 5 through Saturday, September 9. We kindly request that those seeking to retrieve their items bring a valid government-issued ID.
Following this initial period, the branch will continue to remain closed until Friday, September 15 to efficiently process any remaining unclaimed boxes from Saturday, September 9. These items will be securely stored at our Wailuku Branch until they are prepared for pickup. Starting Monday, September 18, customers are welcome to visit and collect their safe deposit box contents during normal branch hours.
Should you have any questions or require additional clarification about this process, please do not hesitate to contact us at (808) 873-2282. Our dedicated branch team is readily available to assist you throughout this transition.
We know our customers are anxiously awaiting news about the status of our Lahaina Branch vault and safe deposit boxes. We are actively taking steps to gain access to the site so we can get into the vault and move the contents that survived the fire, including safe deposit boxes, to a secure location. Once these steps are completed, we will assess the damage and contact customers to schedule an appointment so they can retrieve any belongings.
With our Lahaina Branch having sustained significant damage, as a part of this process, we are terminating safe deposit box leases so that we can provide you a prorated refund covering the time period from August 08, 2023 through your annual renewal date. The credited amount will be deposited into your auto payment account by September 15, 2023. If you are on invoice payments, a check will be mailed to you.
Please continue to check this site for further updates. We will be contacting impacted customers shortly with the status of the safe deposit boxes and next steps.
While we recognize the challenges this situation presents, please rest assured that our priority remains the well-being of our valued customers. We are committed to aiding the recovery process and supporting our customers every step of the way.
