"I don’t know his name, but he is a young man, probably in his 30’s and love the HBCU Bands. He was always such a help and comfort to me. They reason I had a storage is because of a divorce that was in process. So pulling up to the storage facility puts me in a mood. But he was always even keel, and just pleasant to be around, and I needed that. Thank Him for me"

Yvette (Atlanta, GA) at Life Storage, Atlanta, GA (#407)

"From my initial contact with the Atlanta/14th St location, I have been absolutely pleased! Cevon has been the most professional, kindest and helpful person I've encountered. Because I am constantly traveling out of state, I have had to rely on Cevon's expertise these last several months. He is irreplaceable! My experience with this location (and under Cevon's mgmt) prompted me to advise my son, in NC, to use Life Storage when he was making a move this past month! Thank you, Cevon, for all you do!!!"

"I have rented many storage units over the years, in 3 different states, and this is BY FAR, the best experience. Carolyn is the staff person I dealt with, and she was absolutely amazing. I rented during the Covid-19 Pandemic, and she was measuring, professional, safe (for me and her) and really put us at ease. The facility is immaculate, I can not believe how clean it is, always. We have been in after normal business hours to limit exposure to others, and it is always clean!"

Kimberly (East Point, GA) at Life Storage, Atlanta, GA (#8202)

"I had a very good experience with the staff at the Welcome All Rd location. Jamil North, Mgr was always very helpful and accommodating. Even though I ultimately made the decision to let my unit go to auction, Jamil worked to assist me through my prolonged financial difficulties as best he could and he is a perfect example of compassion in action while still abiding by the guidelines of the company. Also the facility was always immaculate, which is one of the things I was most concerned about when selecting a facility. I would definitely use the company again if I had storage needs or recommend to others."

Thus, saving the last of everything I owned. I love you guys and thank you for preserving my Life Storage."

About Atlanta

Serving as the capital of Georgia, Atlanta is a beautiful place on the south of the imposing Appalachian Mountains to live, work, go to school, raise a family or just visit. Atlanta was almost burnt to the ground during the Civil War but managed to bounce back and become a city with strong insurance, finance, manufacturing, communications, and retail sectors, and a place many large corporations like Coca-Cola call home.

At the moment, the U.S. Census estimates the city of Atlanta to have a population of more than 486,000, with the Atlanta-Sandy Springs-Marietta GA Metro Area population exceeding 5.8 million - making it the 9th largest metro area in the United States.


Relocating to Atlanta

Atlanta receives a large number of people from all over the country who choose to move to the city for a variety of reasons. Yet, housing remains affordable despite the high demand so you will find plenty of accommodation options to either rent or buy.

Compared to the national average, unemployment is slightly higher in Atlanta. Nevertheless, the presence of a wealth of companies that are headquartered here (Delta Airlines and UPS, for example) provide enough job opportunities for those that seek employment. After all, Atlanta is the city that has the 3rd largest concentration of Fortune 500 organizations.

Tip: If you’re relocating your business to Atlanta or simply moving to a nearby location, you can rent comfortable and affordable office space, or use our commercial warehouse spaces as a temporary or long-term storage solution for your business inventory.

Avoid theft from your doorstep; let us keep your packages safe by having them delivered to your Life Storage store. A store manager will put them in your space for you.

Things to Do in Atlanta

Atlanta is a lively city that hosts many annual events and festivals. Some of the most popular ones are the Dragon Con, Music Midtown, Atlanta Pride, Dogwood Festival, Atlanta Turkish Festival, National Black Arts Festival, and the Festival Peachtree Latino, where the entire town turns into a huge party scene.

Other than that, the city with the 7th busiest airport in the world by annual passenger traffic – the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport - offers plenty of soul-pleasing things to do in your free time, given the active music scene and the large number of historical points of interest and museums.

What is even more charming about Atlanta is that although it is densely populated, green spaces occupy a big portion of the city, offering lots of opportunities for recreational activities. As for those into sports, Atlanta is a great sports town featuring the Falcons, Hawks, Braves, Dream, United FC and several great college teams.

Atlanta Neighborhoods

While staying in Atlanta, three neighborhoods definitely deserve a visit, each for its own special reason:

  • Midtown - Home to Piedmont Park, a favorite go-to place for families with kids and the grounds where most of the festivals take place, Midtown is the beating heart of Atlanta and the place that combines business with architecture and art.
  • Buckhead – This Atlanta neighborhood is sometimes referred to as the “Beverly Hills of the East” due to the high-end shopping streets, top-notch restaurants, and luxury hotels located in this affluent district.
  • Sweet Auburn – The birthplace (and burial grounds) of Martin Luther King Jr. and the site that houses the International Walk of Fame where you can find the shoe prints of iconic figures of the civil rights movement. Sweet Auburn was pronounced a national landmark in 1976.
  • Westside or West Midtown – The location with a rich history and quaint cobbled, tree-lined paths. Beautiful, restored historical buildings now serving as hip dining facilities or trendy lofts adorn the streets. Many people say that strolling the old alleyways gives them an old-world sensation when horse-drawn carriages were the only transportation seen crossing the roads.

Tip: Self-storage units are a great option to consider for those items you don’t use often (Christmas decorations, etc.) and seasonal items (camping gear, etc.) as well as jewelry, motorcycles, cars, and electronics. No matter where you move in Atlanta, we have self-storage units conveniently located off of the main roads and interstates such as I-75, I-85, and I-285. You can find us near the Perimeter Mall ( facility #847 ), Mercedes-Benz Stadium ( facility #778 and facility #407 ), the Waffle House Museum ( facility #378 ), and 20 minutes from Suntrust Park (facilities #56 , #289 and #45 ).

The accommodation options in Atlanta will not leave you empty-handed if you decide you relocate here. This means that you will definitely find housing that fits your bill. From homes at affordable prices to deluxe, gated communities, the city has it all. And, even though the prices have slightly spiked the past few years, they are still considerably lower than the country’s median.

Tip: Self-storage units also provide you with space when you are moving to another city or renovating your home or during peak times when you need to stock extra inventory. However, it is not uncommon to see individuals running an entire business from a self-storage unit in Atlanta.
