"While relocating to the Hampton Roads area, I searched online for a storage facility and happened across Life Storage in Chesapeake. I reserved the storage unit and within about 20 mins Ms. Dale M. Schultz, Multi-Store Manager contacted me to let me know she received my reservation. She is so pleasant! She answered my questions and when it became apparent that I had different storage needs than what I reserved, she offered to help me find a sister property that met my needs. I thanked her and she gave me her customer service philosophy that resonated with me: customers can spend their money anywhere and they choose to come to where she works, the least she could do is be kind, helpful. Further, "without customers she wouldn't have a job". Due to other responsibilities, I needed to call back on the weekend and she was just as kind, helpful, welcoming (even giving me a mini geography lesson about the area after I explained that the Chesapeake Bay Bridge tunnel scares me) despite the fact that I was not coming to her property. I highly recommend working with Dale at Life Storage at Chesapeake. Her disposition cuts down on some stress related to moving."
