"I’ve rented from life storage for almost a year. The price is great and I feel secure when I’m there. Unlike other storage places the gates are closed throughout the day so you don’t feel like just anyone can come in. It’s clean and I’ve not seen any leaks or any damage in the units. I recently moved to another unit and the staff is wonderful. Sheila really helped me out and went above and beyond for me. I appreciate the service I get."

"Shiela and Celia were extremely welcoming when I arrived at Life Storage on Walt Road in Birmingham. They took me straight to my 10’ X 30’ unit for an initial inspection. The unit was completely clean which reflects on the professionalism of Shiela’s management of this storage facility. I feel very confident in dealing with Sheila and Celia in storing our household goods at Life Storage during our move from Alpharetta, Georgia to Birmingham. Steven “Sox” Sockler"

"Great discussion with Sheila at the front desk. Visual security cameras, gate access and working gates both in and out. Asked for ID, liability insurance, contact names and created access code with who has access to storage unit. Great location in the back with secure fencing all around the business. Large dumpsters to use so loving it so far. Payments online and recurring with online access to update and change. Ready to move in with clean and painted floors-well taken care of property."
