"Robert is great! Everytime I come in he's always smiling and working. The staff is also great. There is nothing negative e to say about this stores I'm not sure why we they ask us to write us re iews"
"Don’t let them fool you! The already rather expensive special prices when you sign up are a scam. There is a hefty rent increase every year for the past few years. The square footage outlined in the contract is not true because these are cheap rolling gates not doors. My space additionally has a pole inside and then there is the pipes for the sprinklers in case if there is a fire. So a lot of the space outlined in the contract is actually not usable! Also it’s in a potential flood area. During the last flood nobody picked up the phone and after several days finally got them on the phone via headquarters to find out if my storage space is effected by the damage or not. The location is still somewhat sketchy in the afternoon/ evening, at least if you are a woman. Lastly there is only one, relatively small elevator. If you have a car there are much better options close by!"
"Robert is super professional and great at explaining how everything works. I feel very confident that this is a safe storage space. Security and awesome customer service is what he delivers. Facility is super clean. Thank you!"
"Great people work at this location. Super helpful and friendly. My dad and I needed some help carrying some heavy furniture into our locker and the people at the front desk were kind to offer a hand if we needed it. Eglon specifically helped us carry it up the stairs. Couldn’t have done it without his help - shout out to Eglon and the other ppl there! Thank you! Such a great storage. Definitely recommend!"
"This location is very clean but the last 2 managers were terrible! Robert is very rude and unprofessional, almost seems like they hire managers straight out of high school with no people skills. Eglon is very nice and very professional."
"Eglon & Robert were both very friendly and helpful. They made the whole moving in and moving out process simpler. They were also great at answering questions. People like these guys make life less of a pain in the butt."
"The only reason I’m giving Life Storage on the 17th street 5 stars is because of Jalen M. When I arrived to their location, it looked closed. Nobody was there. Doors locked. I needed to pay for my unit and purchase a few boxes. I stood there for a bit and then noticed a hand written note on the door. I called the number and Jalen answered. He told me he was at their other location a few blocks away and asked if I could wait a few minutes, he was helping another customer. He was basically the only person working at two different locations. When he finally arrived he was very apologetic, polite and extremely professional. He made me forget that I was mad for waiting for so long. I hope they know how lucky they are to have him as an employee and also hire more people."
"This place is the best. The people are very professional. They really do care how experience is going. i had to change because I moved to the Bronx. But i will return to them if i come back to Brooklyn"
"Nice place to store things. Very affordable, very convenient an offer a few extra things for a very good price. I get packages shipped there, they have the L carts to love your things back-and-forth. It’s climate control is very hard to fine. And it even offers parking. The staff is courteous and friendly and they make this transition as smooth as possible."
"10/10 recommended. Im a college student who just moved to Brooklyn and I was having so much trouble finding a place to store the things that couldn’t fit in my dorm room. Thanks to Ms. Dawn I found the perfect storage with amazing customer service and great prices."
"My first time renting a storage place and this place made it a breeze! I reserved my unit online, but ended up going in person in order to upgrade to a larger size. Dawn was very helpful and friendly. I feel safe with the high amount of security and having to type in my access code everywhere. My unit is a good size and I like that there are carts and an elevator to facilitate moving. My ine complaint is that my storage door gets stuck halfway due to the lock getting stuck at the ledge above the door, meaning I have to push in the door in order to close it. I would highly recommend this place!"
"Jessica was the most helpful person I’ve ever worked with!! She talked me through the rental process so clearly even when I was super stressed out. I’ll definitely use these services whenever I need to in the future :)"
"The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Best customer service I’ve received from any storage facility. Very clean and updated facility with high end security. Best prices in the neighborhood. Highly recommend this location."
"This place is incredible. Super clean and modern. Like I stepped into the future. And Michelle gave a completely outstanding service, walked me through everything involved, space location, best practices. Made my day. Thank you."
"Life Storage 3rd Avenue staff was super helpful. Especially Jessica. She provides great, friendly customer service and answered all my questions in a timely manner. I would definitely recommend this location to my friends and family. This facility is clean and easy to reach in Brooklyn. Thanks Jessica :)"
"Just want to say that the people that work there are probably the most helpful people I’ve ever interacted with in any business establishment I’ve ever been to. They worked with me to find the right unit and on several occasions let me look at the same unit a few times until I felt I had found the perfect one. The prices are great and the access hours are the best in this area."
"I have been using storage units in NYC for over 20 years. As I have moved around NYC I have also moved my storage units. I have tried them all and have found Life Storage's 3rd Avenue Brooklyn location to be the absolute best. Not only is the parking area covered to help you avoid bad weather, but the staff there keeps the facility very clean. Cleanest by far actually. The icing on the cake is the team of Michelle and Jessica at this location. They were quite helpful in getting me the exact units I wanted in terms of size, price, and location within the facility, as well as being very pleasant to interact with. Highly recommended."
"I love my new unit at life storage in Brooklyn on 3rd Ave. This is great facility and clean! Staff here are also very friendly.
Thank you Michelle and Jessica for helping me transfer the unit two times."
"I came on a Monday morning and the manager was super friendly. Highly recommend. She showed me the storage unit I wanted to see, and even offered me something at a better price. The service is phenomenal here, thank you!"
"Excellent service all around here. Michelle and Jessica were very patient in showing me around the facility and answered all of my questions. The space is clean and very easy to access, I decided to rent my first storage space here. Thank you again for all of the help!"
"Ive been to the store twice and both times I was greeted by the friendliest girl named Jessica. She did a great job explaining the details of the units without trying to sell me something I don’t need."
"Had to move out of NY suddenly during COVID and I loved working with this facility. It is honestly so easy to get to and the facility is clean. Very affordable rates for the amount of storage provided. Jessica from the front office is so friendly. I will definitely be storing here again if I ever need to."
"Please don’t use this storage facility unless you’re prepared to have your unit flood, not be notified, and find out when your movers come to vacate the unit that 2/3 of the unit has had water sitting in it for who knows how long. Then be prepared to be offered a brochure to contact the insurance company to deal with the claim yourself with little to no help from Life Storage staff. Terrible."
"I been using this storage unit for a few months and I love it here. Michelle and the staff do such a great job making sure the location is safe and clean. I will be doing business at this location for a long time because the staff is amazing and the price is not comparable."
"At the end of July I booked a unit for $150 / month and moved into it. The next day they told me that, oops, they'd given me the wrong unit number and I'd have to move. Unsurprisingly, I wasn't in NYC anymore and anyway wasn't going to pay movers again for something that was 100% their fault. When I told them that, they said I could stay in that unit for $350 a month. Given that it was 100% their fault, I asked for a discount from that figure. The local manager said she couldn't offer that but that she'd have the district manager call me. Six weeks later, no call. I've called back to the local manager (who's lovely, btw) about twice a week and still no call from the district manager. Just total garbage."
"I rented using a convenient link and was guided through the process by Michelle. Very friendly employee even after several calls ( i know i was annoying). Property is new and well lit. Great location in South Park Slope that is near the 278 and Prospect Expressway."
"This is my second time booking a NYC storage space with Life Storage. The first time was in LIC and I was hesitant to try another location, but Michelle and Ebony at the 3rd Ave location are fantastic. I chatted with Michelle on the phone a few times before deciding on a unit and she was super helpful, patient, fun, and even emailed me photos of the interior of the different units I was considering! I also stopped by to make my final decision and Ebony was there waiting (I was super late because of traffic) and was still smiling and really helpful. I can't say enough good things about these ladies!! Also, the location is easy to get to, easy to access, and is clean. Thank you!"
"Very professional friendly and easy. I wish I asked the name of the employee who helped me, she was very helpful. I would say just go in to tour; I tried to sort out somethings via email but easiest thing to do is stop in the day you need a storage unit and tour/see what's available. Location for this one is great; easy to load in and load out. Excited to have an extended closet with Life Storage. -- Also another very convenient thing - if you're moving a lot of furniture literally 3 mins away is a home depot that does van/truck rentals; made it super smooth and helped cut moving time in half."
"My experience with life storage was welcoming. Michelle helped me with all questions I had about the company and policies. She was very personable, informative, kind and extremely friendly. I was satisfied with all information I received and Michelles customer service skills was the icing on the cake. Perfect face for the company!!"
"I was really taken back by Life Storages attention to detail and was pretty much sold after Michelle called and scheduled a time for me to come in. She really took her time to explain options over the phone and was just as thorough and pleasant when we met in person. I got a family feel while walking around and it seemed like she knew everyones name and they knew hers too. Overall a great experience for this first time storage renter. I highly recommend this location."
"This place is great! Ebony at the front desk was super helpful and answered all my questions. The facility is very clean and secure. We were able to back the moving truck into the garage area and had no issues unloading and using the elevator to get my stuff into my unit. Highly recommend!"
"Not being familiar with Life Storage I went into the location on 3rd Avenue to compare prices against my current storage rate. I didnt expect the quality of customer service that was provided by Michelle and Ebony. They were patient, knowledgeable, friendly and made me feel welcomed. The units, loading area and halls were extremely clean, customer restroom is immaculate and The office smells great! Life Storage sets a high bar. looking forward to leasing at this location."
