Recommend if you need light or heavy storage!"
"Came in over the weekend to some great service Brandon was great and very friendly I lost my keys he cut my locks with no problems or attitude I think I came off as bossy but Brandon kept it professional GREAT JOB BUDDY I WAS HAVING A BAD DAY SORRY LOL"
"Both Shauna (I hope that’s how you spell it!) and Brandon did fantastic. I let them know that this was my first time and they were more than happy to help. They let me ask as many questions as possible, informed me of all new time renter information, joked a little, and all and all made this process extremely easy. They were AMAZING!!!!"
"Huge thank you to shanakay for uplifting me when I needed it the most. This show that she cares about her people genuinely. She took the time to talk life into my struggles yesterday, Due to personal matters Ive been battling with depression. An I will forever be a customer with this store because of her."
"Shanakay was the best individual I’ve met so far in Florida. Personable. Kind. A light in every aspect ! So glad she was apart of the process of getting my stuff safe and sound. Wish there were more managers like her!"
"Shanakay is so excellent and the best manager since I been here. So mindful and polite, and very knowledgeable on her craft. Finally someone who actually cares about the customers and not just here for a job."
"Can we say big shift in the property. The new store manager shanakay is so fast, awesome, But so poise and polite. As a long time customers I really see the upgrade life storage, Keep being a rockstar shanakay"
"Had a rush order on getting a storage unit. Adrian was able to help facilitate the paper work so that I can get my unit quickly and efficiently without the hassle. Found this storage area to be acceptable for storing my belongings. Would highly recommend!"
"Shawna and Adrian made things so much easier. We were running late due to heavy traffic, it was storming, and they stayed to help us get our unit in the system. They were accommodating, gave insightful recommendations, and made my daughter and I laugh after a seriously long day. Would definitely recommend this store!!"
"Dude. This place has AWFUL service! “Rent online & get immediate service”
We rented online && waited 45 min to even speak w someone. For the first 20 min we were waiting outside! Also, whatever price you seen “online” expect to pay like $30 more a month. Not happy w this place so far."
"Easy signup, good deals, great staff! We took advantage of a first month free deal (which basically costs a month with activation fees, so that's fair.) Dave was always pleasant and helpful when I needed anything, and even reminded me to sign the vacation form to avoid additional fees! The unit was clean and reasonably secure. A couple of issues we had: some neanderthal had broken a door spring allowing outside air into the climate controlled area, and that door remained broken when we vacated. At least the weather is cooler this time of year. Also, I had requested a 24 hour access one day, but when we got there our code was denied. I called emergency number and had to leave a message. Someone did call about a half hour later (not bad at 10 at night), but I had already "resolved the issue" myself by that time. Overall a good, reasonable and convenient experience. We would rent form LifeStorage Columbus Avenue again. Thanks again Dave!"
"Being married to a military husband we have had to move multiple times and, used Life Storage for storage needs. We always received great rates for our units and, truck rental. Life Storage on 3000 W. Columbus Drive Tampa, FL 33607 has the best employees that are very professional, knowledgeable and courteous. The rental office is clean and well-stocked, the grounds are clean. I highly recommend this facility for are your moving needs."
"The staff being friendly and informative made this location of Life Storage the smoothest and budget-friendly experience I've ever had in public storage. Thank you, Adrian! Your customer service is 5 ⭐!"
"The manager, Andrew, was very kind when I came in and helped me out with carrying things as I came by myself. He also let me wait for my Uber indoors since it was exceptionally hot out and gave me something to drink while I waited. 5 star experience!"
"Andrew was excellent in providing great customer service. I kept him after hours and he was still polite despite me keeping him around. I needed the storage space desperately in a tight time crunch and if he hadn’t provided the service he did, I wouldn’t have been able to move as quickly as I did. Thank you!"
"I don’t usually leave reviews but this is necessary because of the excellent customer service I experienced at Life Storage.
Management was so helpful, it’s clean and safe. I wouldn’t recommend anywhere else but Life Storage."
"Ben from Oregon - needed a spot to store my trailer - Life Storage #71-immediate opening - great rate and superb customer service and knowledge - provided tips and other conveniences of the area for which I am visiting!! Above and beyond if you ask me and wanted to say thanks again to Andrew for taking the time to help me out! Thanks again!"
"The agents at the W Columbus Drive location my last 5 years, have been extremely professional, helpful, and kind. Their customer service has been outstanding. I appreciate Adrian for his knowledge, smile, gentlemanly and respectful spirit. I leave this location but when I have a need for your services, I look to this location each time. Thank you for caring."
"Adrian was VERY helpful in assisting myself with finding the right storage space for my needs. He made the process simple and easy. I am big on customer service and Adrian exceeded all of my expectations! I will refer individuals to life storage for any storage needs."

He recommend and advised to get a bigger place
So he assigned good one
Very happy all my belongings are save organized and protected"
"Not the best units but not the worst either. We were prepared to be longer tennant's up until the final surprise rent increase. I guess maybe all storage places do this when they think moving out may be a hassle for the customer. But be prepared for constant rate increases here. Even for perfect tennant's who never miss a payment, it ended up being 2x more expensive after exactly 2 years. Little at first, then a lot. The last one was the final straw. NO NOTICE increase. Literally found out the day before the rent on the1st of a substantial rate increase again. Called about it. Apparently demand is high. So we packed it up to a much nicer unit with power. They also don't prorate you if you leave before your month is over. Not cool. Whatever. I think I'm being generous with the 2 stars. Bye!"
"Adrian did an excellent job. Speedy response to my request to see a unit, signed the papers in just a few minutes, everything was smooth. No hassles, and helped me find the right sized unit just for what I needed."
"I went there to know about some space for my stuff and the Hispanic guy on the front tell me everything I needed it on Spanish , soo helpful Ill be back with my husband to see if we got a storage locker there , thanks Adrian, great guy"
"From the moment I stepped in the office, I knew this would be an amazing experience. To them I wasn't just another renter. They asked me a number of questions that helped find what I needed. Even offered me a cup of water. Amazing. Very professional. Best storage facility experience ever."
"Ms. Jessica Glass (Associate Manager @ Columbus Drive) provided excellent customer service and the transaction was very smooth and fast. From the moment I made the reservation via the phone with Barbara, to arriving at the storage location and Jessica taking over - it was Excellent! =
Jessica has a beautiful personality and the company is very fortunate to have such a wonderful employee. I highly recommend this location and I will definitely use their services in the future."
"I called to inquire about a unit to store a car. They quoted me $165 minimum to sit outside. I told them I would get back to them after I purchased a moped or second vehicle. I didn't want to reserve anything yet. Jessica has called me two days in a row to invite me to see a unit. STOP CALLING. I am too busy to be solicited. istorage is cheaper and they don't abuse the fact I gave them my phone number. Life storage said they only needed it "in case we were disconnected". Pushy greedy liars will never get my business."
"When i walked in Jessica who helped me was very nice, helpful and answered all my questions and concerns. She made me feel comfortable. I had another storage unit on hold but I'm glad I chose to walk in and check this one out I'm very happy right now with my choice thank you Jessica!!!!!!!!!!"
"I thank God for people like Jessica G. She went above and beyond with customer service. My son had just driven in from utah and was running late she stayed late iff tge clock to assist us. Thank you for hiring people like Jessica who sees people as people not a number"
"I hate to say but my experience at this location was not good. First I registered and did every thing online yet read charged$25 as an administrative fee. ???
When I got there there were no lights. They were burnt out so I had to move in on the dark. I told them about the lights and was told they would be fixed that night yet continuing to move in over the next 2 days... still no light. I did the whole thing in ther dark with the light from my phone.
Not happy. I should be given a free month."
"The tenant next to my unit stored his mowing equipment there and also blew off all the grass before he stored it in the unit. My unit next to his was always full of his dead grass. Maybe he show blow his equipment outside of the driveways away from the units. Other then that...My belongings were safe and I would rent there again for the 4th time if I needed. Thank you for your hard work. Sincerely, Zina"
"My parking space was covered by a large tree which gave shade, but the branches stooped too low and scratched my tall van. Needs trimming And when it rained heavy, the area near my van was muddy. Wish it was asphalt, no mud."
"Your manager was most efficient and took the time with his associate Nelson to help me get what I needed. It was a most respectful experience . I was most impressed and in fact went back and rented another unit. Thank you for such professional employees. Ryan the manager was superb. I had never rented from your company before and I will continue to use your facility in the future. "
"Was treated very well. On the day I moved in a storm rolled in and the next day I called and was told it was being looked. Being from out of town it gave me piece of mind that my daughter's things would be fine for the summer months"
"PRO: Courtesy professional mgt., clean office, quick, reasonable prices and good hours.
CON: The storage hallways had no cross-ventilations. It was almost hard to breath in there because it was so hot. "
"Sometimes electric gate at Columbus Rd location in Tampa did not work correctly when it rained. Also several times I found unwanted items stashed behind my trailer or between my trailer from other customers."
"I would like to add that the gentleman, name Josh is very accomodating, and helpful. He always treats his customers with the upmost respect. He makes doing business with Uncle Bob's a very pleasant experience."
