Anthony G. (Austin, TX) at Life Storage, Austin, TX (#287)

"I think your office should be open all the time during duty hours. Im sure you guys are losing business b cuz of the paper clock mounted to the door. Thats what I almost did cuz we waitedfor 45 mins before the attendant came back and they were even 7 mins late but I stayed. Other than that everything else is fine."

"I had to move unexpectly and was an emotional wreak. The 2 gentlemen that served me were extremely professional. They were patient and helped me find what I needed. I have been in the service industry for over 20 years. I worked as a manager at a restarant in a high profile 5 star hotel. You either have an amazing training program, or you just hired great employees. Thank you."
