"My partner and I moved out of this facility, but I still wanted to implore people to find somewhere else for storage. We didn’t like this place as it continued to get worse. The rates kept going up at random times and it just became so expensive for a simple outdoor unit. This is also includes with your already high rate, that you will have to shovel around your unit as they don’t completely clear the snow in the winter time for outdoor units. So you will have fun shoveling some snow around the door to your unit while paying a high price every month. I would skip this place. My partner and I are glad we are out of there."May 31, 2021
"Shawn is extremely helpful, shares his knowledge, and is personable! See Shawn for all your needs at Life Storage!!! 5 stars!"March 20, 2021
"Don’t know why there are so many 5-star reviews here. Didn’t have a good experience when I was here. This place will randomly raise your rate, which is already overpriced, this is on top of not being able to get to your unit in the snow since they don’t clear by the doors I guess. There is also no garbage available to guest which is ridiculous when you are easily paying hundreds of dollars every month."March 10, 2021

Starting with the initial booking with Brooke, to then speaking with Hannah at the St. Charles location, I felt at ease, very informed, and confident that I will be well looked after. This was a very stressful time and they made it easy. So refreshing to find people that put "people" first! Thank you so much, Hannah and Brooke!"November 16, 2020

"Ongoing rental rate for online rental reservation is a lie! Dont do it! I've been a customer for almost a year here with the "(on going)" rate and just had my rent raised its outrageous. I told them there was tons of snow in front of every storage unit and they said they would not call the snow removal crew back out to correct the mistake"March 16, 2020
"Dave, the manager, was beyond kind and helpful. When I hesitated to walk to see a unit, because of an injury, he picked up on it and went out of his way to load boxes, get doors and help me see a unit close to the office. This attitude of care and genuine service didn't happen only the first time I visited, it has been consistent every time. In addition, I was very impressed with the perfect cleanliness of the halls, the units and the office. The best, though was Dave!"March 07, 2020

"While the place is good for storage, Sean was too busy to help. Unable to find my keys, he greeted me w a lackluster can i help you after not saying anything and looking at me. Explained my situation and said it would cost $40 but he couldnt do it then for he was leaving at 5:00 (when they close), apparently he said it takes 20 minutes to grind the key down. Whatever. Make sure if you need something from this place you dont do it close to closing, never mind helping out a customer or staying an extra 5 minutes past your shift. Shame on you."December 28, 2019
"Dave Cole was the person who helped me today. Very nice and professional. At the same time friendly and quick. He got me what I needed within 10 minutes and I was out of there quick. He even swept the floor himself, even though it wasn't that bad. I also think it is a very good deal compared to other storage places around."December 21, 2019

"Yeah, I had to start my rental explaining to these idiots how insurance work. First, they didn't tell me I need an insurance policy to open a unit. Which, of course, they don't want to, because when you show up without one, they will let you buy a policy from them.... nice move, huh? Then when I refused to buy their policy, they said I'd have to produce my homeowners policy, and I said no, I'm storing a vehicle. My HO policy, nor does anyone's, cover automobiles. The said that is their policy, and without it I'd be forced to buy theirs. I said, look, you can have my auto policy as I'm only store one vehicle. that's it. Nope, called to the manager, and he knew less than the clerk. So, long story short, they sold me their BS policy until I could prove I had a HO policy. Which I did a few days later, then credited me their over priced policy, but it was beyond absurd."August 21, 2019
"I contacted the St. Charles Life Storage for my upcoming move from Elmhurst. This was my first time needing temporary storage for a house full of furniture. I spoke with Sean, Manager, who was extremely helpful in recommending my best storage options, location and needed supplies. Sean was most professional and helpful. He exhibited great customer service skills. Thank you!"July 31, 2019
"I had an amazing experience at Life Storage! Staff is helpful and very friendly!! Thanks Dave and Sean for making this such an easy transition! Clean facility and units. Truck rental on location was very convenient! I highly recommend the St Charles location for your storage needs!!"July 26, 2019
"Our family is moving out of our house soon, so we wanted to temporarily get a storage space to move the excess clutter that we wanted to keep into a high-quality facility with climate control, especially in this relentless summer Chicago heat. We rented the unit last week, and the facility itself is solid. I can feel the A/C on in the building, it is very secure, and the spaces are high and spacious. No real complaints about the actual space. However, the customer service for the first week here has been lousy at best. There were several issues that we ran into. 1) When we originally rented the space last week, the sales associate essentially required us to buy one of their locks for $18 additional dollars. I had never heard of such a thing. I had a padlock with me that I intended to put on the unit, as I have always done in the past when I have rented a storage unit. When I questioned him, the associate at first said that these were "much more secure" locks, which is why he was making us buy one. The building is already very secure, so I found that explanation to be silly. When I pressed him about it, he then said that he was required to sell us a lock, and he said it might just be a scheme to make more money for the company. Wow. I appreciate the honesty, but that's a major problem. To make matters worse, when I took my first load of stuff to the space yesterday, there were an assortment of different locks on the units. So we didn't have to buy the lock directly from LifeStorage after all?! 2) I wanted to borrow the convenient LifeStorage truck they have at the facility to transport stuff from my house to the unit. The sales associate told me to fill up the gas tank before returning the vehicle - otherwise I would be charged $8 per gallon. My house was nearby, and I only took one trip. So I literally drove a total of 8 miles. After I dropped my stuff off, I asked the associate if it was really worth it for me to go back out to a gas station to fill up the tank, since I had used such a tiny amount of gas. He insisted that I do so. At the gas station, I discovered that in order to fill up the tank, I suddenly had to purchase almost 2.5 gallons. This meant the last person who used the truck did not fill it up, and I was now paying for the gas THEY used. I brought the receipt back to the associate, expecting to be given a refund for the amount I overpaid (about $8). The associate looked at the documented mileage that I drove. And he said even though he sees that I overpaid for gas I did not use, there was nothing he could do about it and "that's just the way it is". So, not only did I have to pay for 2 more gallons than what I used, but the storage space staff wouldn't (or didn't know how) giver me a refund or at least a credit for it. 3) Not only did I overpay for gas, but I also was required to pay $8 MORE, because the cost of renting the truck was 89 cents per mile, which they conveniently did not tell me BEFORE I rented the truck. You would think, considering the idiocy of having to pay for gas I did not use, they would let that charge slide. That would have signified an awareness of the moment and how displeased I was, and would have helped to make things right. But that didn't happen either. Sean, I know that you are the manager of the store. My email address is and my number is 630-267-1987 if you would like to contact me. I requested copies of the transactions and told your associate I would be sending a complaint via the website. However, there is no place for me to send my complaint to your particular store on the website. I can only submit questions that limit me to a 500 characters. I did send a message through the website last week about the $18 required charge for the lock, but I never heard anything back from anyone. Obviously, we are off to a really bad start here. If I don't hear from you, I will be needing to take my business elsewhere immediately. Thanks."July 14, 2019
