Rated 5.0 out of 5 stars Huy (sugar land, TX) at Life Storage, Houston, TX (#396)

"I've never had any issues with the staff. They are amazing and so nice every time I needed anything! I moved out of one unit but signed up for a smaller one (consolidating purposes), even though it's further than where I moved, it is worth knowing my unit is taken care of with such awesome staff! Thank you LS!"

Rated 4.8 out of 5 stars Melinda (Seabrook, TX) at Life Storage, Houston, TX (#396)

"Associate was very helpful. I had picked the wrong size unit online. She helped pick the right one. She was very friendly. Elevator was broken when we had to move, but it happens, just used the other one. Always had a cart to move our things. Well lit and clean. The only thing that was unsatisfactory, was the restroom needed attention."

"The only negative I've ever had with your company is that the elevators are a pain to use. However, since I have taken a much larger space on the 1st floor I will never have to worry about that again. "

"My expectations were meet and exceeded. I was unsure of the process prior to arrival and the attendant (Linda) was helpful, informative, and extremely nice. I would not hesitate to recommend Uncle Bob [Life Storage] to anyone. "

Rated 2.1 out of 5 stars Stephanie (Houston, TX) at Life Storage, Houston, TX (#396)

"I've had the most absurd experience working with Manager Linda. She was not helpful nor knowledgeable or capable of resolving my concerns relating to online access to paying my monthly storage fee. She informed me that she'd mail an automatic payment form and she never did. I've been inconvenienced and late fees have been applied to my account due to the lack of service. I've been storing with this facility for 3 years and have never encountered such absurdities with the former manager. "

Rated 2.8 out of 5 stars Sandra (Houston, TX) at Life Storage, Houston, TX (#396)

"I left for vacation in August and went at different times to pay my rent for September. The sign was always at the door saying they would be back at certain time and they never got back on time. I usually waited 15 minutes beyond the time they said they would be back but I couldn't wait. This happened about 4 times before I left. Then I asked someone to go pay for me and the same thing happened. I finally was able to pay after I returned which was after the 5th ,explained situation, your employee was very rude, I paid the late charge and I moved out. I had rented the unit for over 15 years and service has really gotten very bad since storage unit was changed to Uncle Bobs [Life Storage]. Needless to say I will not rent rent there again and will not recommend it. "

"Our favorite employee was transferred from the Wilcrest location to Highway 6. Not sure why, but she was great. Her name was Sylvia. "

August 27, 2015
Rated 4.4 out of 5 stars Cherry (Houston, TX) at Life Storage, Houston, TX (#396)

"Sylvia was very helpful. I went into the office several times during a 1-wk period. Although you did not have a climate controlled unit available, Sylvia put my name on a contact list and let me know when one did become available. I found Sylvia to be very friendly and showed sincere interest in servicing my needs. The morning we moved most of our things in was a little chaotic (traffic around the unloading area) but that is probably the norm for a Saturday morning. ONE ISSUE: THE ELEVATORS ARE TOO TEMPERAMENTAL. WE WOULD INPUT THE ACCESS CODE. DOOR WOULD EVENTUALLY OPEN. WE WOULD GET ON, PRESS 4 AND THE ARROW KEY, AND NOTHING WOULD HAPPEN. THIS PART OF THE PROCESS WAS VERY AGGRAVATING. WE WERE PAYING MOVERS BY THE HOUR."
