      "We had a great experience renting from Uncle Bob's [Life Storage]. I understand the reasons that this was necessary, but less paperwork to complete would be nice. Perhaps your staff could fill out all of the necessary paperwork via the information provided on the online application. Doing that would make check in much easier and quicker. Your staff were courteous and very helpful so I would rent again and or recommend family and friends. "

It would be nice to have a timer or something to give you 10-15 mins vs 3-5 mins for the light to shut off"

      "We were shown around the facility and the inside of several available spaces so we could best determine which we wanted to rent. We are given detailed cost overviews of each option available and had a space rented within moments of our choice. The manager offered us cold water upon our arrival and while we were actually moving our belongings into the space. He was very friendly and helped in every way that he could.
