    "I recently dropped off some items in my unit and there was a crew putting new black top on the storage grounds and they made sure I had access while they were working and took pride in showing me how flat they made the old bumpy path. Nice to see! Also anytime I needed help I have been assisted quickly with a smile."

    "I have rented from here for almost 2 decades. I would prefer if we didn't get threatened with a lean and/or lock out before a month is past due. I know this is a business but people have unique situations too. I feel more like a valued customer if I'm not stalked for a payment that is late less than a full month. Other than that, I love the place! "
