    Rated 5.0 out of 5 stars Denise (Chicago, IL) at Life Storage, Chicago, IL (#551)

    "I would store here again and again. For almost 2 years, ALL of my items were safe and secure. I was even shocked myself because I never did a self-check over those 2 years. Excellent Service!!!"

    Rated 4.6 out of 5 stars Laura (Chicago, IL) at Life Storage, Chicago, IL (#551)

    "I was very pleased overall but my only complaint is that the entry codes were not working for a WEEK, causing me challenges to enter my unit when I was trying to move out. I find it hard to believe that the codes were down for that long; it should have been fixed much sooner."
