"Horrible experience, I’m moving my stuff from here as soon as possible. The manager Alfonso is horrible, rude and unprofessional, extremely disrespectful dealing with him is the reasons we are moving out from Two storage units. The pl as e usually dirty or flooded because of Alfonso lack of care and poor management skills."

"I cannot tell you how grateful I am to have found this storage location. This past Saturday I was set to find a new storage unit as my previous one was irresponsive to replacing the light bulbs all along the hall of the unit, kept increasing the prices significantly every 6 months, and I was so over it. Low and behold, I walk into this location and meet Alphonso - who went above and beyond to answer many of my questions and get me situated. Thank you Alphonso! I'd also like to add that there is a review either for this location or the one nearby that mentions charges for automatic payments each month - I confirmed that that is not accurate whatsoever. Also, if you have a homeowner's insurance policy, it likely already covers the insurance you need here (of course, verify that with your provider), so that is only an added cost if you do not already have personal property insurance."

"My move took 3 days and a few trips to Life Storage it was extremely stressful not knowing exactly how much stuff I had until I packed it all up. Dennis at Life Storage made my life allot simpler. First I reserved a 5'X 10' online, then when I got to the facility Dennis helped me to downgrade it to a 5'X 5' because online they don't tell you about the addition $14 - $16 monthly insurance charge on top of the monthly fee. Then the next day when the movers came, their entire truck was filled and I still had things left so I felt I needed an additional 5'X 5' unit which Dennis found me one close to the first unit. The move took all day until about 3:30pm and I called Life Storage to ask what time they close and Dennis answered and told me 4pm. I was in the middle of moving things in my personal vehicle and told Dennis I couldn't make it there until 4:15pm to pick up the Life Storage Van I reserved. Dennis stayed late just to make sure I was able to get the Van. The next day I was able to combine the contents of my 1st storage unit into my second unit and Dennis helped me to cancel the first unit. Dennis went above and beyond what was required from his job to ensure my accommodation needs were met. Dennis definitely portrayed exemplary customer service skills and I will definitely recommend anyone moving to the Alexandria area to give Life Storage a call if they are in need of storage. Thank you Dennis, its people like you that define the term "Customer Satisfaction.""

"The space being brand new and so clean and modern was a surprise when I saw the online price. However, I want to mention one big negative about the facility, the loading area is one a very serious slope which causes any dolly or cart to roll away and secondly the ground lip on the sliding door entrance is massive, making it extremely difficult to roll a cart over and into the building."
