Leslie (Indianapolis, IN) at Life Storage, Alexandria, VA (#057)

"I appreciated the lower prices compared to your competitors. I really liked that you have the moving vehicles available to your customers. Something of an issue for me was having to maneuver the carts through the narrow spaces. Lastly, not-at-all least, are the great people-oriented staff you have manning the store. Thank you all, sincerely, Leslie"

I had an above average experience with one of the workers but Britney who I believe is the manager is extremely unprofessional. When I speak to somebody it is not so much the words that matter but the tone. It is possible that of the 12 times that I interacted with her but she was just having a bad day but from a management perspective professionalism should be displayed at all times. I had extreme difficulty accessing my unit after I had misplaced my key. It took them 2 weeks to get the lock removed.

Tamea (Fredericksburg, VA) at Life Storage, Alexandria, VA (#057)

"after going into the office to confirm my reservation, when I arrived they said they lost it. I was stuck finding a uhaul location and paying out of pocket, the only reason i chose your site was due to the truck with the rental. this did not happen and the compensation did not make up for the additional time to drive to uhaul pick up a truck, move my items, and take the uhaul truck back. in addition to the additional gas charges for my vehicle and the rental truck."
