"My girlfriend and I really needed to get a unit and the store manager, I believe his name is Andrew, was an amazing, customer oriented manager… Very upfront of costs and is more than willing to go above and beyond your storage unit needs. He’s awesome and I am sad that we’re leaving our unit. Our apartment complex right next door had a garage open up for us. So we took that, no longer needing the unit."

"We chose Life Storage and we’re so glad we did. Andrew(the manager) is so very friendly and helpful. It’s been open since March on Hickman in the old KMart building. It’s huge! It’s climate controlled and has several doors you can use. There’s carts available to move in several things at once. There are boxes and furniture covers for sale in the office if you need them. There’s two levels with an elevator. If you need storage, I suggest you choose Life Storage. You won’t regret it."
