      "This is not the first time that I've used in Uncle Bob's storage facility but it is the last time I will use one. The management is the largest issue of that store. 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.

If anyone I know moves to the DMV I will be sure that they do not utilize that location. Which is the loca"

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."

      "The space suited our needs and was reasonably priced. The staff was always very friendly and helpful in a warm and genuine way, rather than at arm's length and institutional. I have happily recommended Uncle Bob's [Life Storage] many times."

      "Just one thing; outside night lighting is inadequate. I'm hefty guy and I'm uncomfortable being there at night/after dark. Motion sensor lights would be helpful."
