"Life Storage: Best Storage Facility & Staff ever! I was in a bind because I needed to move out of state with very short notice. I found Life Storage in Durham, NC online & I was able to use their great discount of first 3 months at 1/2 price for  climate controlled, 10 x 15 ft. unit. Tim was very helpful when I went to look at the facility. Ultimately, I was going to have just the movers come get all of my belongings & bring to my new home, because I was not going to be able to return to Durham to oversee the move myself. Tim said no problem, they would keep my key on file & to just let them know when the movers were coming & he & Austin, his co-worker, would take care of it. Two & a half months later when I knew where I needed movers to bring my belongings, Austin was sooooo helpful. I ordered bolts for my washer drum for the move from Amazon & when it arrived, it was put into my unit for the movers. When movers arrived, they were able to get their 18-wheeler onto the property & load up all my stuff up without a glitch. Austin was there to take them to my unit, & because I wasn't there to sign off on paperwork, Austin did it for me. Everything was loaded & off the movers went. Again, without a single glitch! Austin went to the trouble to call me to let me know everything went perfectly! All this happened 5 days before my 3 months were up. Life Storage closed my account without my having to do anything & I received all of my belongings within 10 days! Best experience ever! Not only did the staff - Tim & Austin - go over & beyond their "duty", the facility itself was really nice. Easily accessible, clean & very well situated. I totally recommend this Life Storage in Durham, NC!"
