Rated 5.0 out of 5 stars Rodger Mangold at Life Storage, Sterling Heights, Michigan (#8351)

"Ok, I had my doubts when Kroger moved as to who was going to fill the spot of a place where so many memories were made. But Life Storage now contains memories of its own - literally. We recently took up camping and ran out of storage in our garage. Life Storage came through! Now they too hold “memories in waiting” for us as we store all our camping gear in anticipation of our next adventure. I might add too, Amber is such a delight to deal with. She’s kind, courteous and accommodating. She knows her stuff and can get you the deal you need on a storage unit that could help contain your own “memories in waiting!”"
