      "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. "

      "I think the property and manager, Jeff, are top notch. It has not been as personal and at ease as it was before Uncle Bob [Life Storage] acquired the property. 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. "

      • Debrah from Heath, TX
      4.3 out of 5

      "The only reason I didn't give highest scores on satisfaction was the price and how it increased so much so fast after I rented. The price is actually what prompted me to finish up my mother's estate and get the items out of storage."
