"Best Customer Service from this team! After securing a unit online, I received a follow-up call from the office welcoming me and walking me through the next steps. I went in today to take a tour of my unit. Cathy was very thorough when taking me through the building to give me the needed information, make sure my code worked, etc. Overall a very pleasant, efficient and informative experience. I definitely recommend using this location for your storage needs."
