    "You are a storage facility and they are more or less the same - the only difference is price and location, really, so long as I can get to my belongings during the posted hours of operation and the facility is well-maintained, which yours appears to be, I am very happy with the quality of service. I am not sure how to exceed my expectations. Cake? A free bottle of bourbon?"

    "My only suggestion would be to have some flag or other sign to signify when your office is closed during the day. If something by the road could be flipped up so people in the area who do the personal pay thing could see not to stop at that time. I understand that you would probably be the only business that does this, but it would be helpful to old-schoolers like me. I couldn't be happier with the way things were run otherwise. If all businesses and our government were handled in this manner, we would all be much better off. Thanks. Good people in the office made it happen."

    "Unfortunately, it has been couple of weeks and i've already forgotten the name of the associate who helped me, but all i recall is thinking, "this guy's customer service is like that of a 5 star restaurant." Great guy, very patient, knowledgeable and accomodating to my circumstances. I really appreciated him offering, withough me asking, to be given overnight access, when he noticed that i was pressed for time and had a flight to catch the next morning. Offering a bottle of water was unexpected, but will always stand out as testiment that Uncle Bob [Life Storage] is serious about customer service!!!"
