"Reserved a spot in the Methuen, MA location.  The person taking the order was great - clearly she's not from around here.  She was efficient, helpful and all around pleasant. As part of the new rental they give you access to a van with a few free miles.  Great, but has to be used in 2 weeks.  Made the reservation, then the closing date for the new property was pushed out a week.  Called the Salem NH location for a new date.  Because it was beyond 2 weeks the benefit was no longer available and the rate per mile far exceeded places like Uhaul. The Salem NH manager wouldn't extend the offer beyond the specified 2 weeks which has no financial impact on him. Methuen service = Good, Salem service = not good."

"Fantastic experience with Chuck and this Life Storage location! I checked-out several other storage facilities before deciding on Life Storage. I've been renting a small space for my business storage. When realizing I needed a larger unit, Chuck was able to quickly reserve a larger unit for me within a few seconds. The facility is well maintained and well-lit which is a huge bonus for me especially when making trips later in the evening. There are always a plethora of dollies and carts to help you move things in and out easily. Highly recommend!"

Rated 2.0 out of 5 stars Tom F. (on Yelp) at Life Storage, Somerville, MA (#433)

"It's a decent deal for how close it is to downtown but the elevator literally never works, which is a problem if you have a bottom floor unit. The operations of a business like this don't demand a lot - basically making sure people can store stuff in exchange for dollars with an amount of effort that isn't equal to "lugging multiple bins up and down stairs". Fix your elevator you cheap dinguses!"

"What a convenient storage facility!! Did you know that have very small 2x2 storage lockers available?? No? Well neither did I but Jessica who runs the office and rents out the units showed me some really tiny ones that were accessible for my personal storage needs. (More like a large gym locker but perfect for the occasion=) She was very helpful and friendly during the sign up. Cheers!!! This place is located just off Mcgrath Highway in Somerville. The facility is is quiet, private, and never has to many people in and out an any time. The staff is very courteous and Covid aware, always masked up, and they give you plenty of breathing room(Social distance). It's easy in and easy out of this place and i'm happy that i found it."

"I didn't know what I had until I stored my stuff somewhere else! I rented a 5x10 here for 5 months back in 2018. I decided to go somewhere else because they had a promotion and I regret it (hence, this review!). This place has great equipment, functional elevator, office space, and vending machines for when you get thirsty moving your stuff. It was easy moving in and out of the space. The staff was super friendly! Its a bit on the pricey side but you get what you pay for. This is the Cadillac of self-storage- treat yourself."

"I just got off the phone with Tracey from the Somerville office. I'm currently moving out of cambridge and was looking for a unit to store my bed I recently purchased. Tracey was patient, eager to offer assistance, and most of all an overall happy person. I was looking for a storage unit to back up into and drop off the bed as I'm doing this work by myself- Tracey gave me a list of other Life Storage locations that have this feature. Moving is more than stressful and Tracey definitely relieved some nerves with just a five minute call. Next time you call, I 100% recommend asking for Tracey."

One of the main reasons LIFE STORAGE is a great facility is the simple fact that, the site operations assistant associate Tracey is very helpful , super friendly, always smiling and is knowledgeable about the facility.
