"I tried to store my things here for a few weeks while I wait to move in to my apartment. I was very communicative with the staff ahead of time, and they knew my situation - that I was having movers coming from out of state. I even called them the day of to confirm. They had plenty of chances to WARN ME that only trucks under a certain height will fit into the facility, but they didn't. Lo and behold I arrived on site to meet my movers and the very unhelpful woman who was there says, "oh, I hope your truck is under 12 feet." Lo and behold the truck was too big, and she did nothing to help me find a solution. I was stuck making frantic phone calls to other storage facilities while my movers sat around for about 2 extra hours. Not only did I have to compensate my movers for this extra time, but the horribly rude, condescending manager Brian is now refusing to refund all of the money I paid the company for a unit I was unable to use. All of this could have been avoided if the staff at this location cared about their customers and could have bothered to warn me about what I assume is a pretty common problem."

"The store manager Jillian is such a sweet lady! My dad and I rented the Life Storage truck when I was moving my things out of UB and I was running late. I called Jillian and she was completely accommodating. She understood and even joked about how this happens with the college kids often. Then in August, I couldnt get my belongings out of storage by the 31st, so Jillian told me about the 5 day policy and I was able to keep my things a few extra days. She even called me on the 4th to remind me. I appreciated my experience with her and I just thank her for assisting me the way she did. =O<þ=O<þ The only downside to this location is that it isnt 24/7, but thats because its located in downtown."
