      "I stored my items at uncle bobs on south 1st street in Austin Texas. Sterling and Peggy were unbelievably helpful and extremely tempermental even when I did the paper work for one unit and then requested a bigger after I realized it was too small. They were super friendly and I was pretty blown away. Being in the service industry I'm always hoping to have good service wherever I spend money. Will definitely store with you guys in the future.

I did not expect a good experience thinking that it would be like trying to get your vehicle that had been pounded.

I would rather return to Uncle Bobs instead of risking in having bad experience with someone else. Thanks!"
