"You all are absolutely AMAZING! I am so glad that I was able to find a storage company that is kind, friendly, helpful, respectful, and just genuinely great with customers. The customer service was amazing all around and I truly believe that things trickle down from the top, so the manager Brittany is doing a SPECTACULAR job at this location. It really shows in their work, and working with this group is effortless."

"Limited experience with different storage providers, but most of those we have seen or used were not well-maintained or seemed "iffy", so our expectations for storage providers in general were pretty low."

"The moving truck is a great perk. I have already recommended two additional people that are storing with you now. Thank you for your service."
