I love the fact that it's all inside and very well secured, both the units themselves and the building as well. Andrew made the renting process very easy, showed us the unit and made quick work of the paperwork. I'd rent here again if needed and I will recommend this place to anyone looking to store their things."December 06, 2022

"Very nice friendly clean office and units. Staff was great and helpful. Definitely if you need storage come check them out!"October 31, 2022
"I researched all the self storage companies in the Des Moines area & Life Storage was in a great location (good part of town), they have many surveillance cameras, everything is temperature controlled, each renter has a unique pass code so they know who has entered the building, it is a newer facility that is spotlessly clean and even with all these features, they had the best prices. They also have carts, elevators & wide hallways to make moving large furniture or many boxes quicker & easier. The manager, Andrew, was very friendly & helpful. I’m disabled & unable to walk long distances, so he specifically found a unit that was the size I needed very close to the elevator to make it easier for me to access it. They really have been wonderful to work with. I would highly recommend Life Storage."October 18, 2022
