      "We already completed a Google review too. We want the management to know just how helpful Wayne was during our time of need. We had a house fire in late Oct and were finally allowed to clear out our possessions in early Dec. Wayne got us set up right away with a storage unit to hold the items we salvaged until we were able to move into a permanent new house. We had used Life Storage previously and so we knew the service and unit would be right. But Wayne went out of his way multiple times to assist us during a very difficult period. In addition the new employee Stephanie has also been very kind and helpful."

      "We appreciated your availability over these years. We closed out units only because we simply cannot afford storing so much stuff that we've even forgotten we own! That's a waste. We'd happily go to you again if we need to, and certainly we'll recommend you to others, along with out compliments of your facility and personnel. Thanks so much!"

      "I also used their moving van and was told it was full and to bring it back on full well my storage I moved from was on a mile away so I didn't have to put any fuel in the van. When I returned the van the associate asked for a gas receipt and I told him is was still on full THEN he showed me on the contract where it says bring a gas receipt back so why should I had to have one and the van was still full? I have a problem with that."

Also, the main reason I chose Uncle Bob's [Life Storage] was because of the extremely reasonable rates. They're half compared to the other storage places I looked into."

      "Everything was explained in full, and I didn't even think about asking for a military discount, but once I mentioned that I would be traveling due to the military, he gave me an option between 50% off one month's rent or 10% each month's rent, suggesting the military 10% would be better for me in the long run. Things like that are extremely appreciated; not just the option between the two, but advising me to the better option for my needs and situation."

      • David from Newport News, VA
      3.8 out of 5

      "We were always pleased with the facility and staff until it was time to exit. It was explained when we indicated we would be moving out the next month that we didn't have to give a months notice, or that there was a form to complete PRIOR to moving. They said IF we left during the month that we just paid for that as long as it was before the 20th of the month, they would pro rate the month's rent. It didn't work that way at all. Instead we were told we had to complete a form in advance, and it's not "likely" that we will get a refund. Bad information gave us an awful exit experience. Because if this underhanded method, it would be hard to recommend this storage unit."

      "Current staff are more pleasant than when you first took over the site from SpaceMart. I was never sure why the first Uncle Bob's folks in there were acting like tools to people. The staff I have encountered more recently seem to be better suited to their jobs. I did have a problem with an auto-payment being recorded as not working when in fact the payment was never attempted with the credit card company, but I suspect that is a corporate issue rather than an issue with my local Uncle Bob's.

      "I was very, very impressed with this facility. I had visted a few other storage facities in recent days (to include another Uncle Bobs [Life Storage])and was not at all impressed with the upkeep of those facilities. This particular facility is luxury self storage in my opinion. Very impressed with the facility and service provided by Wayne (the manager)"

      "Wayne, the manager at 701 Brick Kiln Blvd, Newport News, VA 23602 was very friendly and extremely helpful. This man took time to show us several units to ensure our satisfaction. Where other places just want you to sign up and be done with you, Wayne really went the extra mile to be courteous and helpful. I can not say enough about our experience thus far and if Wayne is any indication then we will be most satisfied with our experience."

      "It's a nice storage facility and the 24 hour access and the location in a relatively safe place helps. I am planning though not to stay too much longer because it's just getting cost prohibitive for me at this point. Thank you. "

      "My only concern was the fact that the storage unit floor seemed to be crumbling a bit. Did not affect the use of the storage unit, it was appearance only. My only other concern was that there seemed to be a large number of spiders that were in the storage unit when we moved in. Our items needed to be cleaned of spiders and webs when we took them out of storage. I liked the fact I could access my unit at all hours, 24/7. Overall it was a positive experience."
