"The manager at Broadway was always so attentive and able to help and resolve problems. She was a total people person! So professional and could always put a smile on my face.

"In the hectic time that was my move, I just now realized I forgot to follow up and close my account with lifestorage to make sure I didn't get charged after I cleared out the locker. Then I got this email for the customer satisfaction. You guys closed the account for me. That is such a stand up move and I think you are great because of it. Seriously, you have a lot of honor in doing the right thing there so thank you!"
