    "I stopped by Uncle Bob's [Life Storage] Storage to inquire about possibly downsizing to a smaller unit. I was assisted by associate manager Shavonda C. Ms. Shavonda was beyond helpful; she took the time to share all the different storage options. She was both professional and cordial. She also gave me pointers on how to maximize space in my current storage unit. Thanks Shavonda"

    "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?"

    "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 "
