"I had a fantastic experience with the Life Storage on Petty Rd in Durham for my short term storage needs. The online system was super easy to use, both for initial set up and monthly payments. The unit itself and the facilities in general are very clean and well maintained. Ryan, the customer service associate, was incredibly friendly, competent, and easy to work with. He walked me comfortably through both getting the unit, and vacating it two months later, making the whole experience easy, pleasant, and straightforward. Moving was hard; this wasn't. Highly recommend."

Rated 5.0 out of 5 stars Matt James at Life Storage, Durham, North Carolina (#175)

"Excellent storage unit we have used for years during COVID, but the true 5 star experience is with the staff. A staff member, Austin, came out to help us with our U-Haul ramp, and his ingenuity led to us fixing the problem in 2 minutes. Truly fantastic people and service, and that experience alone I would give 10/5 stars if I could."
