"Hello Reynaldo & Angela, I am writing to thank you and your team for creating a self storage environment which deserves to be modeled as a template for excellent customer service in today's self-storage industry. A few months ago my business partner and I made the decision to relocate our business operations to Chicago from a rural market. The trade off for us was loosing the cost effective real estate and that sense of personal security and ease of access with having a self-owned facility for equipment storage etc. Throughout this transition we've priced out and tried other competitors in the space that provided comparable benefits and was able to offer that personal sense of security of an on-site facility. This is when I walked into your branch and your team brought it all together for us. It's an experience that words cannot truly describe but if were to attempt to, it was walking in and feeling a welcoming greeting from you, it was being treated like my business was your..."

The second unit has dust, mortar and parts of the wall falling onto my stuff. Worse than VERY POOR. Also, unacceptable."

"I looked at your website and decided to rent the 5'x4' storage unit, which was said to have 8' ceilings. I got to the lot and found out that 5x4 units don't have 8' ceilings. I was very disappointed because I was mislead by your website and now have to pay extra for a 5x5 unit. The associate was very sympathetic and gave me a deal on one month of rent, which I greatly appreciated. But, the information online is untrue and misleading, and that is very frustrating."
