Rated 5.0 out of 5 stars Will Zelazny at Life Storage, Buffalo, New York (#819)

"Melissa was very curtious and explained exactly where our unit was and how to get there/navigate the building. The facility also has a big garage that we were able to pull into to unload our cars. Melissa kindly and quickly was able to open the garage for us as we were in a rush. Would recommend to a friend!"

"Great experience at this location! This is my first time renting a storage unit and I was inadvertently locked out of my unit due to a misunderstanding on my end. Brian greeted me with a smile, was personable, and most importantly was extremely helpful in getting everything sorted out for me, explaining my account, opening my unit, and helping me get my online account set up. He went above and beyond - even lent me a pair of scissors which I had forgotten. Wonderful management and I know I made the right choice renting here - I will definitely recommend to others."

"I stored my daughters apartment furnishings at the Ellicott St., Buffalo location and it was a great experience. The place was so clean, and the available carts made it easy to move her things in and out of the space. Melissa the manager was extremely helpful and friendly. She acted professional and provided wonderful customer service. Even though my daughter found her new apartment, the next time anyone in my family or friends need storage, I'll be recommending the Buffalo Life Storage location."
