      "Associates were people with integrity and commitment to their job..., the facility is always clean and well maintained, and very well designed to fit the needs as a client. The facility has a great location within Downtown Los Angeles!, it turned out to be so much more than I would've imagined about such services. "

      "It is a good place to store competitively priced but a little high in my opinion. Prior to your company changeover my unit occupied the current location where an elevator shaft was built. I was forced to relocate last minute with no assistance but I didn't consider that when rating you current company, I think only complaint is the price but even that is ok. "

      "I don't go there very often but so far so good! I appreciate that i have not been prodded if the rent is a few days late. Storage prices are higher than they were in the late 90s, which should be no surprise i guess. :) Thanks for all your work."
