"I came in to visit Life Storage Facility today, and the young lady at the front desk Ms.Tyesha was very helpful in giving me the information in what I needed to do for renting a storage unit. But the only issue I see is that this facility could be more secure with having a security guard on duty at all times. Other than that issue this I would rate this facility with 5 stars."

"Today was a very stressful day of moving. Thank god for Jay because if it wasn’t for his extreme customer focus, I would’ve never been able to move into my storage unit. My ever changing moving schedule was no problem for him and he made sure we had everything we needed to get into our unit. Thanks Jay!"

"The staff is very nice and the Mgr; Rey is exceptional. He is very professional, knows the business and has a great sense of humor to boot. He went above and beyond helping me to find the perfect unit for my needs. I'm new to the area and was made to feel welcome to Chicago. I'd highly recommend this place if you need storage space for short or long term. These people will work with you to make sure the customer is happy!"

"I can't say enough about the help I received from Raina. She was extremely helpful and made the entire process of renting a storage unit (for the first time ever) so seamless. The most amazing part was her genuine willingness to help, including to other customers who had came in for various reasons. She definitely put everyone at ease and even made a lady smile after she came in stressed out at the beginning. If I could give 10 stars, I would."
