      "Vast improvement over the units I have rented in the past from both Public Storage (Elk Grove) and The Lock-Up (Melrose Park), which both had cleanliness and rodent issues, rude employees, and higher prices. I also used a PS on Touhy in Niles, which was very clean but expensive. All three employees I've worked with at Life Storage have been very professional and pleasant."

      "I was fortunate enough to be helped by the wonderful Anabelle-she certainly went above and beyond! I was not aware that the business closes for lunch from 1-2pm and I showed up at five to one with a truck I had only rented for an hour. Luckily, Anabelle, was kind enough to stay through part of her lunch break to take care of me. The other thing I was unaware of was that they charge a mandatory insurance fee. So what I thought would be a $60 rental turned into $90. I was a little disappointed with the price since it was not what I anticipated, but it is still cheaper than the other storage units I looked at. Also, the whole place seems really well maintained. The customer service was truly top-notch; Anabelle was awesome!"
