"This is the 5 star version of storage facilities - amazing service, super easy to understand instructions, and everything set up for your move in to be smooth and effortless. The associate manager of the #1024 location in Tucson, Steven, was awesome - he saw that I was moving out of one of my spaces, and offered to take my vacancy notice over email, so I could save a trip going in. I was so busy at work, I was already 3 days late turning it in, so he saved me time and money for any additional delays! And the cost of gas as well. I've noticed the service is excellent and pro-active, which is so great when you just need some help to get things done. The facility is extremely clean and modern - loved it!"

"We have used Life Storage every summer while my student was in between campus housing and have always been extremely pleased with the facility.  The ease of reserving a unit, the information sent via email that eliminated the need to visit the office to sign papers or get the access codes is so convenient.  The facility is clean and easy to access, extremely good  location for college students and always feel safe there.  The staff is awesome, so professional and helpful.  Highly recommend!"

"I wish I knew the name of the young lady on 1st shift. She saw me (akwardly) attempting to hold a piece of furniture upright as I shrink wrapped it, and assisted me with grace and a wonderful sense of humor. Thank you to Life Storage Mt. Pleasant for a very positive experience...."
