    "Was given a unit with a drilled out lock. Was given a tab to put on the hasp to secure it. Had to leave items unsecured due to the tab being incorrect. Was also told that I would be able to use the box truck to move in. I reserved the truck, but my reservation was not honored. Had to make multiple trips in personal vehicles to move items into storage costing me extra time and money."

    "Generally I think the service is fine. However during the summer the asphalt was repaved and someone took a blower and blew dust and debris under and over the doors of my storage unit, thus making a hugh mess that had to be cleaned up inside the unit. Some decorative items were soiled badly. The doors should have been shielded form such actions."
