"We had a wonderful experience at our Life Storage location. The staff was friendly and helpful and the storage facility, and our specific unit, were clean and welcoming. Our needs were well taken care of and we will definitely use Life Storage again if we have off site storage needs. Kudos to your great Rutland team!"

"Rarely do we receive this type of customer support, knowledgeable people on anything in the 21st Century. Not here. We were treated like royalty, every inch was addressed leaving no questions for us to answer. I have already recommended LifeStorage. Thank you for excellent training and customer support expectations."

Rated 4.4 out of 5 stars Natalie (Bumpass, VA) at Life Storage, Mechanicsville, VA (#948)

"Everyone is friendly, location and building is clean & easy to access. We have had absolutely no issues w/ the storage unit other than the Thermostat location. We have a thermostat in our storage unit. This was very inconvenient to have to come to the unit, arrange our items in order to have it adjusted from AC to heat. Thermostats should not be located inside a unit & if they are the client should be made aware that this would be a seasonal requirement prior to agreeing to that particular unit."

"Shea & Kim were very helpful in my first storage space rental: they both took time with me and answered all of my questions. I am very impressed with the facility and the ease of loading my goods from home. I also was able to speak with the manager, Doug, who helped me with more furniture coming from Maine. The whole experience is 5 star for sure!"

"Doug, the manager, was so nice. He was professional, friendly, very knowledgeable and made a great impression. Life Storage at Rutland is one of the nicest storage facilities I have ever seen."

Rated 5.0 out of 5 stars Rabah (Saint Stephens Churc, VA) at Life Storage, Mechanicsville, VA (#948)

"Life Storage "exceeded" my expectations in the following ways: 1) the property was clean and in excellent shape, 2) having use of a truck to move in was exceptional, 3) the carts that are available to help with moving in/out is extremely helpful and very useful 4) the registration process for the space and truck was very smooth and the staff were so friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The only exception and room for improvement was the logon process and trying to activate the advertised discount. This was more an IT issue. The manager worked it out for me to receive the discount in the end. Thank you. I feel like my storage items will remain safe, secure and easy to access when needed."
