    "The woman who we worked with, I believe that her name was Shirley -I'm terrible with names, couldn't have been more pleasant or more helpful. I have already recommended this life storage to several people. Moving is stressful, but she as well as how nice your facility was taken care of took a lot of the stress away. Thank you. "

    "I was able to reserve the storage unit online and when I spoke with the office, they were great. I was coming from Reno, Nv to Toronto Canada, where we were moving my daughter out of college. We wanted to store her things in the United States until we could get them. She was a great help and very friendly. Great access from the freeway too. "

    "I would like access to a vacuum cleaner/shop vac. I cleaned my unit last month and was given a manual sweeper which didn't work very well. Also, the storage unit overhead doors need to be cleaned once in a while (wiped down, maybe twice a year) They're very dusty/dirty and many times when I visit my storage unit I am dressed for work. I have been wiping it down...but, that requires me to bring cleaning supplies and quite honestly I think that should be maintained by Uncle Bob's [Life Storage]."
