Let me start by saying how wonderful the entire staff was… They didn't treat me as just a customer, but as a friend… and guided [me] through the process very professionally… Overall, I didn't feel like I was renting a storage unit, but maybe purchasing a fancy car or staying at a nice hotel. [T]his place is extremely affordable, much better pricing than competitors, and for the quality of service, you will never find anything like this in the area… Walk around this brand-new building, which is astounding. Extremely clean, classy, just beautiful. This is a 5-star hotel for [your] items.

Chloe was very nice and helped me in creating my lease. She was very professional and answered all my questions as I filled out the forms. When I emailed questions about the locker they called me back promptly. Since then, everyone has been incredibly friendly and helpful. Definitely recommend!

I have rented two units in two different locations, the second one having been recommended by the first as being less expensive. The staff in both locations were friendly, helpful, and informative. I heartily recommend this business, largely because of its employees, but the units themselves are easy to access and well-lighted. They've done everything they can to make the unwelcome task of storing one's belongings as painless as possible.

I'm a long-term customer and very satisfied with the service - just got another unit the other day. The facility is very clean and dry and the hallways are bright. Staff are very easy to deal with if you have any questions or need another unit. The location is easy to get in and out of too. Highly recommend!
