Rated 5.0 out of 5 stars Louis (Syracuse, NY) at Life Storage, Syracuse, NY (#493)

"The one thing I have not been happy about since you took over the storage containers is that you discontinued the discount the previous owners offered to customers who paid six months' rent up front. Once you feel you are sufficiently established, you might want to consider a similar incentive for prompt, up-front payment. Your office people are very helpful and polite."

Rated 2.9 out of 5 stars Marylea (Syracuse, NY) at Life Storage, Syracuse, NY (#493)

"You've pretty much become a monopoly here in Syracuse and I'm beyond disappointed that you do not give a free month with a six month prepay as the previous operator did. If there was another storage area reasonably close not run by you, I'd shift there, but unfortunately there is not and so I'm forced to pay what I feel is a high price for limited space."

Rated 4.8 out of 5 stars Kathie (Syracuse, NY) at Life Storage, Syracuse, NY (#493)

"I loved everything about the Uncle Bob's except that a few days before folks were going to pick up items from the storage, I was pretty shocked to find stone dust and debris has blown under the door and into the space making the front portion very dirty and dusty - apparently it was from the resurfacing of the tarvia outside the door. I would have appreciated knowing before hand that this could happen."
