"I have had a unit at this location for several years and just added another one. Travis and the entire managements staff at this location are always professional and easy to deal with, the location is well lit, spotless and easy to move in and out of. There are several storage companies and locations in the area but in my experience Life Storage Morton Grove has been the best to work with in terms of cleanliness, security and service. Travis and the entire team there are the best!"
