Life Storage #433, Somerville ‐ Wine Storage Features

  • Climate Controlled Wine Storage**

    For optimum quality, your wines should be stored at 55-58°F, with 65-70% humidity. Life Storage offers refrigeration equipment dedicated to our wine storage units, separate from other unit heating and cooling systems with generator backup. As humidity fluctuations can impact your wine's flavor, we offer humidity control systems in our wine storage units as well.
  • Lighting Control**

    Wine storage units feature motion-activated lighting and special lightbulbs so your wine is exposed to a minimum amount of ultra violet light. Minimizing the effects of light exposure during wine storage enhances the quality.

    Smile, you're on camera! Surveillance cameras are positioned throughout the facility to create a safer environment by monitoring traffic in and out of the facility and deterring trespassers.

    "Great service by your on-site office and the phone center ahead of time. Only negative was that the elevator was out and no hope of restoring in a timely manner. Very inconvenient, considering only basement room available! But the wonderful manager (?) and spotless facility were so outstanding that I still chose you to rent from. Just puzzled how elevator could be allowed to stay unrepaired for more than a day."

    "The rental online process was easy and clear. I liked saving $25 by filling out my paperwork online! The staff at the Boston location I rented at are always friendly and helpful. So much so that I am a repeat customer. Great employees, great company! "

    "My parents rent space @ a Texas facility. Your property is larger and more upgraded. I also like that your facility provides more loading equipment.Great! The automatic door at your loading dock was the only thing I found inconvenient."

    "So glad the second garage door got fixed! Sometimes I miss the hours, so possibly seeing if extending the hours makes sense would be beneficial."

    "I just wrote an essay on this and it was evidently deleted as I took too long! I was thrilled with my experience and happy with both the call center employee who first answered the phone and the gentleman in the office who signed us up as he was very patient when we were indecisive about which boxes to purchase, took us on a nice tour, and helped my daughter and I feel it would be safe for her to come and go due to the security and the controlled access. I was very pleased to be able to get my credit card billed, making my life easier. "

    • Angela from Boston, MA

    "I really do love my storage unit! I am happy that my belongings are located in a place that feels safe to me! The reason I chose this storage space over others is because I felt I was given personalized attention and advice. The manager (ie: in store manager) was extremely helpful and did not aim at making the most money out of my arrangement. The only negative comment I can make is that the floor could be cleaner although I do understand this is a storage facility and not an apartment building. I would definitely recommend this storage space to others. Actually, I myself was referred to this storage space by another very satisfied customer!"

    "I wish the prices were lower because I am paying for 2 storage units. Other than that, nothing to complain about. Your survey should also have a N/A type field. I rarely go in the office but I didn't want to give the staff a bad rating because of that."

    "My only complaint, and it's a small one, is that I did not have 24-7 access to my storage unit. I understand how that might increase your costs, however. One option that could be offered is a fee-based or schedulable extended hours schedule. The only reason I closed the unit was that I no longer needed the extra space."

    "In my three visits since getting my space, I have struggled with the availability, selection, and quality of the carts. On my first visit, the only available cart had a sticky, malfunctioning wheel which made it very hard to maneuver. My second visit,the only available cart was two-tiered, which was hard for the furniture I had to move. On my most recent visit, another customer let me use their cart on the managers' urging after I had been waiting for 20-30 minutes for any carts to become available. Please buy more carts and get rid of the old ones. This is a major part of the service I pay for and a relatively minor expense on your part."

    "Chuck is one great guy! Genuinely friendly. He was the first face I saw upon relocating to Cambridge. I could keep renting an empty unit just to do stop-and-chats with him. Chuck's wife is one lucky woman!"

They are the BEST!!!!!!! I am very happy with this arrangement. My compliments to Chuck and Jose!!!!"

    "I am very happy with this storage location. The employees are always nice to me and helpful. I have spoken to others about my satisfaction. Also, your lobby is beautiful and welcoming. It is the nicest storage facitity I have ever used. I like the fact the storage facility is located next to the office in case I need help with anything. This is a very nice business and employees are nice. Nice employees make all the difference as I don't frequent businesses where employees are rude, and this is never the case with this facility. Thanks for everything."
