Jackson (Chicago, IL) at Life Storage, Chicago, IL (#481)

"The manager is very eager to help and explain things, and does a good job selling you on the benefits of storing our things at Uncle Bob's [Life Storage]. She is genuine, direct, and moves quickly to help. The place is INCREDIBLY clean. I'm sure this is because it's brand new, but it's just a really great place. We're very happy with the cleanliness, appearance, and ease of this location. All other staff has been very helpful as well. Maybe add some signs or lines on the concrete to encourage people to leave room for more than one car in the bay... People don't seem to follow that rule very well. Also, pulling into this location from Pulaski is a nightmare! The little lots out front are so small and there's a gate RIGHT THERE. Maybe move the gate back to add room?"

Alison (Chicago, IL) at Life Storage, Chicago, IL (#481)

"Wishing we knew ahead of time that we were going to have to pay for insurance. When I originally got a quote from a sales associate, they did not mention this. I found out when filling out paperwork, which was a bit disappointing."

Clara (Chicago, IL) at Life Storage, Chicago, IL (#481)

"I love that the staff is genuinely helpful and concerned about my needs. I love that the facility is clean and climate controlled. I had issues with the storage company next door. Mold grew all over my furniture and every time I needed a cart I couldn't find one. I later found out they were all stolen. Uncle Bob's [Life Storage] is more affordable, professional and cleaner. "

August 28, 2015

Deborah (Skokie, IL) at Life Storage, Chicago, IL (#481)

"The service was amazing. We were over the moon that not only was the Center so clean but we even qualified for a van to move my belongings in. But then sadly once we signed up and tried to book the van , we were advised that although we qualified the facility we were using didn't sign up to that service so we couldn't have a van after all . That was the only negative aspect of the rental otherwise it was perfect "
