"Never had a storage unit before and for my first experience, I loved it. Tina is amazing ♥️ Helped me so much. It’s climate controlled which is great. When I moved most of my things out I had no issues with bugs or mine which is something I was worried about. No worries, everything is in good condition still. Thanks Tina!!!!!"
