"Rebecca is the best customer service representative EVER! I do not know her personally nor am I a friend. I am very critical of all CSR's whether on the phone or in person. She is one OUTSTANDING person! I'm so glad she still works there when I go in. She cares about people, the facility, and takes her job seriously. She should be management at the least. Just EXCEPTIONAL! Don't lose her!!!!!!"

Rated 5.0 out of 5 stars Jenn (Maysville, KY) at Life Storage, Portsmouth, NH (#520)

"We mainly dealt with Rebecca. I believe she may have been one of the managers at the office, but I’m not 100% sure about that. She was always kind and courteous to us and when she found out that we were going to be in the area without a home for awhile, she went out of her way to give us places, numbers, & ideas that could help us out. She definitely deserves to be recognized for all her sincerity and effort. The only reason we left LifeStorage was because we left the New England area and we are planning to go to Tucson, AZ. If you happen to have a storage location there, we would definitely use your facilities again!"

Rated 4.0 out of 5 stars Chris (PORTSMOUTH, NH) at Life Storage, Portsmouth, NH (#520)

"I liked the unit and the facilities but the annual increase in price every year is what drove me to give up my unit. It just got too expensive."

Rated 5.0 out of 5 stars Laura (Newfields, NH) at Life Storage, Portsmouth, NH (#520)

"I entered in a very bad mood. Rebecca turned me around. She was genuinely kind, friendly and helpful. Very unfortunate for her that she is on her own in such a large facility. She can't be 2 places at once and has to put a "be right back" sign up when she shows units. That's why I entered the store mad, as I waited almost 45 minutes for the store to open. Rebecca helped me understand how she is the only one in the store, which I did not realize. She went over and above making my visit very pleasant!"

"The staff is great and always were helpful. We were called when it was noticed we forgot to lock our unit and given a chance to take care of it right away. The day we checked out, the maitenance man came to assist immediately, because we were having trouble using the elevator. Top notch service, and would come back if and when the need presents itself. Thank you for a positive experience. "

"Your associate was wonderful. Methodical and thorough. I had to go back a second time to provide insurance information and she was equally prompt and helpful. I have not received a bill so I do not know if the monthly insurance charge has been dropped. I will know in a day or two."

"There was really no mention of shear convenience your storage facility offers. The proximity to where I live, the roads I travel, is great. The convenience of the billing direct to my credit card. Half the time I forget that I even own a storage unit because there is so little you have to do once you move in !!"

"I had rented before from Heritage and had a very good customer experience. The auto lights always worked, the elevator and trolley were in very good working order and I had peace of mind during a very stressful time. I returned 10 years later hoping to find the same level of comfort and I was relieved to see that I had the same level of trust but more personable service, the golf cart preview of the space was a bonus, the whole environment was very professional. GREAT EXPERIENCE"
