"My transaction was handled very professionally with kindness and respectfully in the office. However I did have two concerns: 1) I had to wait to be helped because of previous customers which was fine, however I am disabled and was recently released from the hospital. It just would have been nice to have a chair or bench to sit while waiting. 2) When we went to the storaged assigned to us, it had a lock on it already which required more waiting."

It had already been a long day for me and I had been on my feet for many hours though my limits at that time was only 20 or 30 minutes without being tired. Many thanks and just letting you know you have a wonderful caring staff there. Thanks again."
