"I don't even want to give them one star! I will tell everyone I know NOT to use Life Storage because it is not geared for customers. This is not my 1st situation with this company that has shown me that they do not care about their customers, they just care about the $$$. My latest situation I was late with my payment for about a week and they had the nerve to put a lock on my unit, of course I didn't know this and I had made a payment before leaving work to come here for a wasted trip! I've dealt with other storage companies and I could be almost a month late and they would not put a lock on and do not get me started on how horrible they treated their customers during this pandemic, not caring if people of out of work,  they would never refund a late fee.  Public storage really stepped up during the pandemic,  carrying about customers needs,  even refunding more than one months late fees."

"They will rise the price untill you move out. Then they will put you into collections for rent after you moved out. It will hit your credit and will cost 2000$ of unfair collections practices.  Your stuff will be moldy for the unit. And will be better off burning the stuff and never ever putting your stuff into storage."

"Abysmal when it comes to customer service. I'm an "essential worker" due to COVID-19; a travel nurse, who typically works 3P- 3A, or 3P-7A, I don't have much time for accessing my things due to the narrow access hours offered by Life Storage. That's a small problem that could have been addressed by honoring my request for open access to an "essential worker" who is working or sleeping the only time Life Storage makes available. This is a do able request that other storage facilities readily avail. The big problem is Life Storage will not consider so small a customer courtesy, and when I called around 2:36PM the smart mouth Pam had the nerve to say, "Well your awake now." That kind of rudeness just heaps hardship on a person visiting NH in order to help during the worse humanitarian health crises anyone alive has ever seen. Uncalled for, as is the response to the request. Moving to a facility that did say yes. "Bye Felicia" Life Storage."

"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!!!"

"Although almost convenient if you live in th south Loop, rental pricing is in line with its location. Staff there tends to be arrogant and unhelpful. One positive is indoor loading dock for one vehicle."

"Horrible experience!! This place is over priced and to top it all off the freight elevator has been broken for over a month. My movers had to move heavy furniture down an entire flight of stairs. What a nightmare...I don't recommend"

"Worst Experience Ever, Street Entrance Closed off, Spoke with Manager before renting, manager never stated Street was blocked or closed off... inclusive was told that they had a loading Bay...that's not even working and all the way on in the front of the building. Rear dropping off is small and inconvenient. Made me buy a lock and finding out I had one refused to refund me the money. There are return policies in effect that allow me to return and manahy still refused. Their policy on insurance states it's not needed or required bin the contract but manager forces you to get it or you cannot rent which goes against their policy. In addition their facility has traces of rodent feces. Never agay I'll take my business over to another storage location"
