"I was extremely pleased with the entire experience. Your employee was exceptional. He went out of his way to process my rental agreement efficiently and rapidly, provided valuable advice as to the optimal storage space needed, and made sure that I had the most secure lock. He was fully professional and friendly. I will strongly recommend LifeStorage to my friends, family, and colleagues. Great job!"

Rated 5.0 out of 5 stars Joy (Allen, TX) at Life Storage, Allen, TX (#490)

"They offered the use of a flat cart to move items from one storage room to another, and he even delivered it to us at the storage room. After we finished using it, we brought it back to the parking/service garage just outside of the office, and thanked them for everything. They are always very courteous to me when I visit. "

"I haven't had a locker in more then 30 years. I sort of still don't, as this is for my two kids stuff not mine. I rented the space and did the move myself so they could save $50 a month. Kids are so lazy these days, especially "My Girls"! Just don't go up on the rent for a least a year, or my one daughter will say "I told you so".............Craig "

"I made quite a few visits to drop off and pick up items over my stay. I was impressed at how often I would see teh employees out and about cleaning and sweeping up the grounds. They seemed to take pride in their location. Amy is who I saw quite regularly and she was always very pleasant and would stop to say hi. (even when it was really hot outside)"

"Thanks for making the interim storage of my household goods the easiest part of a difficult intrastate move. The pro's at Uncle Bob's thankfully guided me into the right-sized unit (where I had originally booked a smaller unit)...would have been a nightmare otherwise! Thank you for your professionalism and great customer support throughout the entire process! Drama-free and easy! Sincerely, Sylvia"

Rated 4.4 out of 5 stars Marc (Mckinney, TX) at Life Storage, Allen, TX (#490)

"My closet is 631 in Allen, TX. My stuff that is not enclosed in a box gets extremely dusty. I do feel that 79.00 for the unit I rent is way overpriced for the size of the room with so much dust covering all my junk that would be in the basement if such luxuries were constru8cted in homes in TX. The staff is always excellent in dealing with customers."

"You worked with me for the time I needed the storage instead of billing me for time I don't need. Also, an extra lock was placed on my unit as it had 2 doors; I had bought one but then the lady helping me realized there were 2 doors. She put the lock on the 2nd door."

Rated 5.0 out of 5 stars Matthew (Allen, TX) at Life Storage, Allen, TX (#490)

"I have had several storage units at this location for several years. The unit price keeps going up! I understand that some of this is necessary but I have had 3 increases in the past 3 years. That is a bit excessive. If the price is going to increase then we should be allowed to have 24 hour access to our units. Other places are cheaper and have better "amenities" such as this. Also locking the dumpster? After the thousands of dollars I have paid? I should be able to dispose of trash in the dumpster. Just some food for thought! Have a great day!"
