    • "The onsite manager is a life saver. he has gone above and beyond for me. He has helped me with several moves during very stressful times. I worked for a book company so was frequently working out of my storage units, sometimes alone during very late hours and I never felt unsafe. I have rarely if ever even seen a bug or spider in the entire facility, which is near impossible! I just can't say enough about the Lake Forest facility's service and its all because of him. I havent met anyone else at Bobs that works to this caliber. He is truly dedicated. "

There is an obvious "do things by the book" feeling in the other staff and frankly, this is storage. A people business, not computer assembly. "
