Wine Storage Features

  • Temperature & Humidity Controlled

    The refrigeration and dehumidification systems for our wine storage are dedicated to these special storage units, designed to maintain temperature and humidity for the wine storage environment.
  • Lighting Control

    Our wine storage units feature motion-activated lighting with special bulbs that minimize exposure to ultra violet light. By lowering your wine's exposure to light, your wine is better preserved in long-term storage.
  • Ideal Storage Conditions

    The wine storage area at our Lake Forest Life Storage is designed to provide the optimum quality for wine storage. Your wines should be stored at 55-58°F, with 65-70% humidity with air purification.
  • Surveillance Monitoring

    Our wine storage units are monitored by 24/7 surveillance cameras. These surveillance systems help create a safer environment and deter would-be trespassers.
  • Controlled Access

    Entrances to the property and wine storage areas are secured with keypads. Your personal access code grants you access to the building and to the wine storage area. Customer access is monitored in access logs.
  • Hand Carts & Moving Dollies

    To assist you with moving your wine from your vehicle to your storage unit, Life Storage offers hand carts and moving dollies to make it easier. Be sure to grab a cart or dolly when you're moving your wine cases!

**Lights, controls and security features vary by facility. All systems may be subject to service interruptions for maintenance.

April 28, 2015
Sophia (Lake Forest, IL) Life Storage, Lake Forest, IL (#404)

"The onsite manager is a life saver. he has gone above and beyond for me. He has helped me with several moves during very stressful times. I worked for a book company so was frequently working out of my storage units, sometimes alone during very late hours and I never felt unsafe. I have rarely if ever even seen a bug or spider in the entire facility, which is near impossible! I just can't say enough about the Lake Forest facility's service and its all because of him. I havent met anyone else at Bobs that works to this caliber. He is truly dedicated. "

March 27, 2015
Kristine (Naples, FL) Life Storage, Lake Forest, FL (#404)

Ed (Lake Forest, IL) Life Storage, Lake Forest, IL (#404)

"The store Mgr, Jeff, was awesome. Very helpful. A+++ for his service !"

December 23, 2014
Thomas (Lake Forest, IL) Life Storage, Lake Forest, IL (#404)

"I think the property and manager, Jeff, are top notch. It has not been as personal and at ease as it was before Uncle Bob [Life Storage] acquired the property. There is an obvious "do things by the book" feeling in the other staff and frankly, this is storage. A people business, not computer assembly. "

November 25, 2014
Roger (Lake Forest, IL) Life Storage, Lake Forest, IL (#404)

"A very nice facility. Easy to get in and out. Very clean ."

November 23, 2014
(Kenilworth, IL) Life Storage, Lake Forest, IL (#404)

"The olny problem with your service is that you guys are so good that you are pretty much sold out at my location. Hence, I can't move into to a larger unit."

August 27, 2014
Debrah (Heath, TX) Life Storage, Lake Forest, TX (#404)

"The only reason I didn't give highest scores on satisfaction was the price and how it increased so much so fast after I rented. The price is actually what prompted me to finish up my mother's estate and get the items out of storage."

August 23, 2014
Patricia (Missoula, MT) Life Storage, Lake Forest, MT (#404)

"I was impressed with the security of your units. The manager was very kind and helpful. We would use you again"

June 05, 2014
Paul (Highland Park, IL) Life Storage, Lake Forest, IL (#404)

May 31, 2014
L. Roger (Winnetka, IL) Life Storage, Lake Forest, IL (#404)

February 28, 2014
Marcin (Lake Bluff, IL) Life Storage, Lake Forest, IL (#404)

"The manager (Jeff I believe) was a genuinely nice person and help me with my storage needs. I wasn't sure if I needed a larger unit and he reassured me that if I needed a larger unit he would be able to accommodate me and help me out with the logistics. Truly a great experience with a great person running the show at Lake Forest!!"

January 18, 2014
Barry (Highland Park, IL) Life Storage, Lake Forest, IL (#404)
