We are so happy we did! The office staff is not only super friendly but very knowledgeable and helpful! The location is clean and there is always an employee around the yard working on something. Restrooms are also kept very clean. We were concerned about the rainy Florida weather but our storage unit is very dry and we feel secure in our decision in storing with Life Storage! Great Job!"
