      "I really do love my storage unit! I am happy that my belongings are located in a place that feels safe to me! The reason I chose this storage space over others is because I felt I was given personalized attention and advice. The manager (ie: in store manager) was extremely helpful and did not aim at making the most money out of my arrangement. The only negative comment I can make is that the floor could be cleaner although I do understand this is a storage facility and not an apartment building. I would definitely recommend this storage space to others. Actually, I myself was referred to this storage space by another very satisfied customer!"

      "My only complaint, and it's a small one, is that I did not have 24-7 access to my storage unit. I understand how that might increase your costs, however. One option that could be offered is a fee-based or schedulable extended hours schedule. The only reason I closed the unit was that I no longer needed the extra space."

It is the nicest storage facitity I have ever used. I like the fact the storage facility is located next to the office in case I need help with anything. This is a very nice business and employees are nice. Nice employees make all the difference as I don't frequent businesses where employees are rude, and this is never the case with this facility.

      "I just wrote an essay on this and it was evidently deleted as I took too long! I was thrilled with my experience and happy with both the call center employee who first answered the phone and the gentleman in the office who signed us up as he was very patient when we were indecisive about which boxes to purchase, took us on a nice tour, and helped my daughter and I feel it would be safe for her to come and go due to the security and the controlled access. I was very pleased to be able to get my credit card billed, making my life easier. "

      "In my three visits since getting my space, I have struggled with the availability, selection, and quality of the carts. On my first visit, the only available cart had a sticky, malfunctioning wheel which made it very hard to maneuver. My second visit,the only available cart was two-tiered, which was hard for the furniture I had to move. On my most recent visit, another customer let me use their cart on the managers' urging after I had been waiting for 20-30 minutes for any carts to become available. Please buy more carts and get rid of the old ones. This is a major part of the service I pay for and a relatively minor expense on your part."

    Serving Somerville

    Somerville is the most densely populated city in New England, so it can be tough to find a home with enough storage space. That's why many people turn to Life Storage on McGrath Highway, where you can rent anything from a two-foot by two-foot storage unit to a 400-square-foot unit that's big enough to hold the contents of a four-bedroom house. Many units have climate control, and the facility offers a range of boxes and packing supplies for sale. Find us right by the Twin City Plaza.
