Rated 5.0 out of 5 stars Matthew In Chicago X. (on Yelp) at Life Storage, Chicago, IL (#550)

"This is a great storage facility with extremely helpful staff. I've stored here over the last year and had a few different units spread out across the building  (since I kept underestimating the amount of space I truly needed). My account was a bit messy because of the different start dates for each unit but when it came time to close the units down during my move, Monica was super helpful with clearing things up and alerting me to a billing tip that would basically save me $50 or so. The facility is easy to access with your own code, the lighting is very good (but motion controlled so stay active if you're working in your unit), and parking is always easy in the gated area.   Three tips to make your experience better: (1) there are only a few carts for moving your items to/from the unit... plan accordingly and/or look for carts in the building as some customers don't put them back where they should be located when not in use (2) if you need the loading lock, plan ahead because there are only two spots... sadly some people park in there who literally have two items to move and then spend hours in their unit doing who knows what and you're waiting around with a moving truck to load/unload and the spaces are occupied. (Hack: if you're using movers, get to the the building before the movers and park your car in the loading dock so save the spot for the movers... maybe it's savage, but keeping movers waiting is very expensive) (3) there are no trash cans or dumpsters on site, not even a small trash can for wrappers or papers. Bring your trash with you when you leave. (This seems normal for storage facilities otherwise everyone would be dumping their junk there) Oh - one more thing, if the staff aren't at the office, they're walking around on site... I often saw them doing rounds or cleaning... give them a few minutes to return or call the facility and hit option '2' which will call the local facility (otherwise it routes your call to a call center). Happy to recommend this place, and because of my good experience, I'm now using LifeStorage in Florida where I just moved... and the team there is also really good."

"So far everything’s great! Monica and the staff are always friendly, knowledgeable, and honest. Clean facility, good easy access. No bait and switch or aggressive sales calls like it felt when I tried to book with Public Storage. Promotion price is what you pay and includes a discount rental on their moving van rental."

"Beware of this location.  They have 4 moving carts for the whole 2 buildings. Claim they keep getting stolen yet they have camera's everywhere ??? Waited over 20 minutes for a cart to use. This has been going on for months...the " replacement carts " never appear.  However,  you can order on Uline and have next day !!!  Not a very clean location either...dirty floors, bathroom out of order ( always ).  They have had a recent price increase too...for what...poor service ?"

"Let me first start by saying that Monica was such a pleasure. I hadn't been to the facility in years since I placed my mom's items here after her transition. I had forgotten passcodes and my keys and she was so kind, understanding and helpful. Although today was difficult going through mom's things, it was nice to be greeted with kindness and a clean facility."

"I've had my storage unit for a little over a year and I've had issues, but not like today. Every time I've gone to the unit and used the elevator it NEVER senses someone going in the elevator. I've been hit with the doors and even if I've had taller furniture it still gets closed on. Today the elevator hit me. As I was leaving again I was hit. I was backing up out of the garage, waited for the gate to open and the bar to come up and as I backed out the bar crashes down and hits the back of my car. Scratches my paint, embeds red paint into my back widow arm and grates into my clear coat. Shocked that my car got hit I slam on the breaks-- 2mph not much of slamming, but I did. My partner gets out to try and get it from scratching more. They try and use the "stop" "up" button, but still nothing. Furious I go to the front and state my car just got hit from the arm in the back garage. First response from Monica the store manager is "well we have a timer-- it goes down" I said I opened it and stated backing up as fast as one could safely and the bar just came down-- where is the sensor" she responds " you haven't crossed the sensor yet."  So my car can get hit before it even senses someone there? She then states "well if you saw it coming down you can use the safety stop buttons." I said " how am I going to stop the car fast enough from it getting hit and run to stop the bar from hitting it more."  I said, "look at the video and see what happened"-- both employees did see the car get hit and didn't say anything. Monica then said "does your car have damage?" "Yes" I said, "my paint is scratched deep and my wiper arm got hit too. "  Monica says "well I'm going to go to the back to investigate the bar, can you wait here and I'll help you when I get back" I waited-- told my partner how we just watched the video and how I was going so slow that I can't believe how fast it came down to hit the car. My partner then came inside with me to see what the wait was. Monica came back called someone and said "yeah I got a customer who hit are bar and they didn't damage the bar but their car is damaged" I looked at my partner like I didn't hit the bar the bar hit the car I don't know why she's saying that -- she couldn't even point it out where I hit the bar in the video or say anything before this point. Monica then comes to us and says "well there is nothing we can do -- you hit the bar" I said "I didn't hit the bar how are you going to tell me I hit it when we just watched the video together" (keep in mind the location now has 4 other customers inside the office). They both responded cocky "we watched it 5 times what do you mean you hit it" I said "if I hit it show my partner they would like to see". "No we don't need to show you it (the workers)." I  said, "how are you going to tell me I hit it if you can't even show me where or show me the video again." They said "you hit it I don't need to show you anything." I repeatedly then said "please show me I hit it-- there are so many people in here let's have them all watch too so if I did hit it we can all see it." Again nothing-- no video. I said "there seems to be a problem with this facility and sensors-- I've been hit multiple times with the elevator and no sensor has occurred-- now my car is damaged from another lack of a sensor." The guy working there said "that is not what we're discussing-- we're discussing you hitting the arm, call your insurance if you want it fixed then you can contact us"and *threw a business card* of Monica-- the other employee next to him. How did my car get hit at 4ft+ but the arm resting place is lower?  Why are my scratches vertical, and not a dent ? Why? Well because the arm came down and hit me. No images until after the lawsuit is complete."

"I coordinated my rental and move into this storage unit from long distance. The staff had been extremely helpful on the phone answering my questions and coordinating the rental contract but I was a little uncertain what the facility would actually be like. The day before my move I came by to check things out and was not disappointed. Monica greeted me cheerfully, and helped me with logistics and instructions for accessing my unit. There was a temporary lock on the unit, and a welcome bag inside with a permanent lock and further instructions. The unit and facility were clean and accessible, with ample parking. Coupled with the competitive pricing, and wonderful staff, I give this Life Storage facility an enthusiastic five stars."

"Individual was highly attentive and very professional.

He was calm and calming and allowed me to quickly change to another size storage unit after I had miscalculated the space and did it promptly while my movers were standing with the furniture and household items. His actions were extraordinary and most commendable. I recommend both Life Storage and Maurice (I hope I got his name right) with my highest commendation."

"Venita Allen-Reid, the manager at the Addison Street #550 Life Storage. store has always been responsive and helpful when my wife worked with her regarding our storage units. We recently rented our 3rd unit as we are trying to do some Decluttering in our home. My wife has normally dealt more with Venita, but I had the chance to interact with her more on this last trip to the store. She answered any questions we had as she always has; in a professional and friendly manner. She was on top of helping us secure the van for a future date because we had to connect with a relative before we were able to secure the date. That may seem like a small thing, but she made it a point to make sure we could get it for a day we had a driver. As we have a number of large items to move, this was a big help. My wife can’t wait to get some of the things out of the house! Venita is professional, friendly & knowledgeable. The Addison store is always clean and organized and the buildings that house the storage units are the same. We appreciate having a quality storage space so close to us with great management and friendly managers like Venita. She treats you like a person whose business she values...a winning combination."

"High praise for Life Storage #550 on Addison. Venita was so friendly and went out of her way to show me superior customer service. She took her time to explain my options, guided me through the leasing process, and respected COVID protocol. Today, COVID measures are important and Venita's in-person observance of mask, social distancing, and keeping a clean office made me comfortable. Venita gave me a tour of the storage campus, walked me to my locker, made casual conversation, and thoroughly explained the locks and door codes. Upon multiple visits, the staff was always present either in the office or making rounds around the facility. The halls were always kept clean and the three pull carts were always available! Never had an issue with my door code or getting into the building. The units are secure! Thanks Venita, you made a difference!"

"Unsafe. COVID problems- we visited our storage unit twice today to try to avoid other people that were not wearing masks. There is no hand sanitizer or wipes, no signs that require masking, and a whole bunch of people not sanitizing distancing or masking running around. No enforcement either- even called once and they didn't do anything. You could at least pretend to care by putting hand sanitizer near elevator buttons or on each floor as people get off."

"Wow! The Service and warm hospitality I received from Venita was Out of the Blowhole Spectacular. I was shopping around earlier this week and had reservations for 4 different companies to view the facilities in the area, mostly on Kedzie Ave around the corner. It was my second stop for the day and after the tour and meeting with Venita I cancelled the other meetings that day and went with Life Storage. While on the tour after seeing the unit I reserved, I determined that I would need more room and was planning on going with another company because of lack of availability at Life Storage. Venita in formed me about a vacated unit that was 3' larger and became available that afternoon. It was the perfect size, only $2 more per month and $17 cheaper per month than any of the competition in the area. Venita was very warm, professional and knowledgable. Venita also informed me about their FREE Van Rental for move-ins which saves me the equivalent of three months storage. Today when I locked in my contract for the rental I was delighted to speak with Venita again because I was having a rough start and was stressed out for the move. Venita was very down to earth and put me at ease while being patient with me to retrieve my necessary insurance policy numbers I needed for the rental. I wish all my interactions with concierge representatives where this professional and compassionate. Sincerely, Derek Alexander"

"To us, the most important parts of a business are     Efficiency     Competence     Understanding and caring about customer needs            and...perhaps above all      Ethics.           For each of these, Life Storage on Addison gets an A++++.  Higher, if I had enough room for more plusses!  And one of the most important reasons for this rating is Venita, who is its guiding light.  She embodies all of the above. Added to which she's caring and kind.  We're so glad that, in our exhausting hunt for an excellent place to store our things, we met her.  Thank you, Venita, thank you Life Storage."

"My experience with Life storage store 550 on Addison Has always been positive. The space has always been clean and the employees very helpful. Recently My husband and I decided to move storage from a competitor storage Company to Life Storage, Where we already had one unit. Between working with Bob at the call center on a smaller unit I reserved & then Venita Allen-Reid, Manager at #550 Addison store, my experience continues to be very positive. Bob helped me get temporary discount on a unit because a better special was no longer available at #550 store. Before I finalIzed the reservation, a larger unit became available online (what I actually needed) at a good price. I reserved this unit and called the #550 store and worked it all out with Venita. She worked with corporate, sending an email etc. to get that discount transferred for the larger unit. It Was clear that she was very busy But she remained polite and friendly and helpful during our calls. When I went in to finalize everything and Make a change on my current lease agreement, It was delightful to meet her. The store was clean (as is the building housing storage units) And organized and she made sure I had no other requests. Working with a manager like Venita makes the process of having to pay for more storage much less painful. ; )"

"IMPORTANT PLEASE READ! We all know that moving can be a hassle. It's one of those pains in life we all try to avoid, but in the off chance you have to move into a storage facility I can't recommend life storage enough. I have used this location whenever I needed to move my belongings into storage. And its always top notch but this time it was one of the best experiences ever. And that is all thanks to the lovely Raina who literally went above and beyond to help me find the unit that worked for me. On the website where they have great deals on their units I mistakenly reserved a 10x10 unit thinking itll work. When she walked me to my new storage unit, panic set in when I saw how small it actually was, but she was right there to help fix the situation that I caused. What would have been a million hoops to jump through to fix this wrong Raina handled it professionally and swiftly. She was able to correct my wrong and upgrade me to a larger unit, saving my wife's China cabinet in the process lol. I am so thankful and appreciative of how professional and kind she was to all my needs and she answered all my questions. She was beyond helpful and understanding which is why I recommend this Life Storage location. She is one of a kind and her customer service is out of this world. Thank you Life Storage & Raina for taking some of the stress out of moving :)"
