Rated 1.0 out of 5 stars Laritza Suero (on Google) at Life Storage, Charlotte, NC (#497)

"If I could rate it 0 stars, I would. Horrifically dirty. Trash all over the place inside and outside. My parents left their things in a storage unit for a year and when they moved out, furniture had mold and there was rat poop all over their things. To top it off, the guy in charge does not seem to have any customer service skills. Do not recommend one bit!"

"Absolutely the worst experience ever working with a storage facility. No one ever at the facility and no one will answer the phone or respond to your voice message. Jeffery Blair is very unprofessional and his lack in ability cost me time and money. Never again will I deal with this clown farm.🤯"

"Mgr Jeff was very rude sometimes asleep. Some of my things had mold on them which i see im not the only one and had to be thrown away. I would see mice in the facility. No air in the summer months and i think that Jeff is in the wrong area and line of work as far as customer service goes. Strange behavior should be tested.."

"We had mold and mildew all over almost all of our furniture when we moved out. We were there for 13 months while building our home. We had a queen mattress, Lazyboy leather recliner, and Bassett sofa and loveseat that had to be thrown away due to significant mold and mildew. All of our wood furniture had to be cleaned before we could move them into our new home and some of it (especially our kitchen table) still has a smell of mildew 1 month later. Our rugs that were wrapped in rug bags had condensation inside the bags when we pulled them out of the unit. We were extremely disappointed that most of our property was damaged. It cost us a lot of money to replace and significant time on our move in day. We did have insurance but there is a sublimit for mold and mildew so we could not recover more than $400 which doesnt come close to our loses!"
