      "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]."

In this age of taking care of business online and over the phone you should be asking questions about customer service over the phone and the quality of your website.
