    "I previously used a different branch of Uncle Bob's in Columbia to store some things I did not want to take home in between school years. This branch was overall much nicer, cleaner, and the staff were more helpful, courteous, and informative than the other branch. I moved to this branch because the previous branch ran out of the size space that I needed, and I am glad that I moved."
