"This is the most technologically advanced, secure, safe, clean, convenient and well managed storage facility in all of Alachua county.  The smart phone based access control system and smart locks with digital key sharing for individual storage units is awesome.  It's powered mostly by solar panels, and the first floor has dedicated dehumidifiers for the best storage environment available!"

"Had a great experience! The technology is great, the place is clean and Josh was the nicest, most patient customer service representative I have ever encountered. I was bracing myself for an annoyed person when we showed up minutes before closing, but Josh was unfazed and treated us like we were family making sure he answered all our questions without trying to rush us out the door. Truly service with a smile:)"

"We recently rented a unit to faciliate our child's upcoming move to UF. The staff has been extremely helpful with setting up our rental and walking us through how to arrange to have packages delivered. Thanks again Cameron and Josh! They have been so helpful and a pleasure to work with. Having packages delivered is a great benefit of this location and we were able to make all arrangements remotely. The app is also intuitive to use. Glad we found this place."

"We needed a storage facility while we prepare to move. Lifestorage is a fairly new storage facility here in Gainesville Fl. We’ll, one look and we decided they had all the things we wanted including a great monthly fee. They are completely automated. No padlocks, no codes to remember, just an app that lets you in, the app opens the elevator for your floor only and there are plenty of carts. The app even opens and locks your storage room. But I was really impressed with the little things like the scented plugins along each corridor. It’s clean and there is a roof where you park so no issues with rain! And Kameron, the site manager is great! Highly recommend!!"
