"Andre was incredibly helpful! He helped me right away and honored my discounted special on my unit after I changed the reservation and lost it. He took time to show me the unit before I purchased it as well as other materials, like boxes and protective mattress slips if I needed. He was super friendly (not only to me, but all the other clients there), knowledgeable, thorough, helpful, and helped make the whole process a smooth and easy breeze! Great price! Great help! Any materials you need for moving are all there. Unit was spacious and exactly what I need. And place is clean. Andre runs this place amazingly. So happy I went to this LifeStorage location. Thank you Andre!"

"They allow homeless people to use the storage units as a temporary place to stay during the day. This very dangerous and has a high risk of theft."

"Wasn’t sure about this place with it being my first day back in California. Got a great online special and Fernando made me feel well and safe about storing my stuff here. He was also very patient as I kept getting in and out of calls. Great customer service. If you’re ever here ask for Fernando he’ll get you setup right."

"Andre and Jessica are the BEST! Andre set me up with ease and was even able to get me a special rate reduction. I had to go back and upgrade my space to a larger unit, which is where Jessica comes in. Just like Andre, she handled the situation with A+ customer service and had me in a new larger unit in a short amount of time. I highly recommend LIFE STORAGE on commercial for any storage needs. Ask for Andre or Jessica!"

"My items have been stored at the facility on Slauson and Avalon for almost 10 years and I have gone through several owners of that facility. I have been unhappy since life storage took over for several reasons. For one they are gouging the people in a community that is obviously suffering financially,  continually raising the prices, causing many people to lose their personal and sentimental items, auctioning off things from people that have been there for years, while in the pandemic and people are off work they raised their prices AGAIN!!! I have gone several times to make a payment on days they were supposed to be open and found closed forcing me to pay online for which they NOW charge for.  The facility used to be well kept, now it's always dirty.  The employees that I have encountered are nice enough, however they seem to be understaffed; That's the fault of the ones sitting in the office's making these horrendousdecisions decisions."

"Uncaring- Sudden Rent Increase During the Pandemic Insensitive and Uncaring during tough... Insensitive and Uncaring during tough times I called and no one was available to take my call. What is up with the sudden 10% rent Increase under 5 months and during the pandemic and while most people are struggling or unemployed?! While other businesses are being TRULY APPRECIATIVE of Customer Loyalty and are being CONSIDERATE with their customers' suffering during these tough times (by being forgiving towards rents, mortgage and other payments etc...) Life Storage has to be the opposite and show Thoughtlessness by twisting the knife another notch?! *** Very disappointed***. This is the Wrong Time to be so GREEDY! I believe this Rent increase is due to RETALIATION for Reporting Traces of RAT DROPPINGS at their Teneya location Hallways Facility in LAS VEGAS, NV. This was reported to their main customer service a month ago and they are trying to DRIVE US AWAY WITH THE HIGH RENT INCREASE.  Vermin /RAT PROBLEMS were brought up by many others giving a review of life storage!

"We're so thankful for Life Storage, Andre and the staff at this location. My wife and I utilized a couple of units for about 2 years for a startup business. Constant merchandise drop offs and deliveries. The loading dock was clutch! The staff was more than helpful. The place is organized and clean. Having community dollies and pallet jacks were appreciated too. Awesome to see it off the 101fwy... great memories! Thanks guys!"

"The facilities are clean and organized. Customer service is amazing. The reason I give it a three is because it use to be 24 hour access. I use to be able to access this facility at 3am if I wanted to. They implemented more security measures which is awesome. My only issue is that management did not give anyone a warning that their 24 access would be suspended if you didnt have storage before 2016. I made a 50 mile trip only to be denied access. No email or letter. Seems highly unprofessional. Thats my only issue. Other than that, I have had no other complaints from this facility. Online pay is easy and customer service is very efficient."
