"Great workers!! Every problem that I had they made sure that there was a solution on how to fix it. Every question I had they answered even with the questions they didn’t have answers to they made sure to check in with someone to help me better understand it."

"Raquel was extremely professional and helpful in my experience with Life Storage. I got to the store and found that the location and unit ultimately wouldn't work because of the size of my moving truck (the garage is 12 ft tall and my company's truck is over 13 ft). She easily and quickly got me transferred to the 8th street location. To me, that speaks volumes that even when she couldn't find a solution at her location, she was willing to go the extra mile to help me find something else. The 8th street location was just as clean and well managed as the St. Paul location. Thank you Life Storage!"

"Thoroughly enjoyed my experience renting a storage locker from Life Storage on 8th St (as much as a person can truly enjoy this experience haha). As a new customer, the move-in deals are unreal. Given its location downtown, I thought I'd be paying a premium compared to the other storage facilities around town, but with the move-in deal, the prices really were quite comparable. But honestly, the customer service here is excellent and makes renting here worth it. Crystal and Jennifer are the absolute best. They are efficient and really know what they're doing. The sign up paperwork can be completed online but I chose to spend more time with them because I had such a wonderful experience talking to Crystal on the phone about the unit. They are kind and hilarious and super helpful. They are very responsive and if they don't answer your call right away, they will call you back really soon. The amenities are great: 1. It's a drive in location (and I had my locker on the first floor) so the weather didn't matter as much. It of course rained on both my move-in and move-out dates so we were extra thankful that the storage locker was at least inside. 2. They have a door that has high enough clearance for big moving trucks to park inside as well. We had a 12 foot truck for move-in but the relocation company's large truck also had no issues with the clearance. 3. There are multiple flat-bed carts that are super helpful with loading and unloading and they all navigate well. 4. It's a climate-controlled facility. My locker was open to air with a fence over the unit but honestly I had no issues with it. My only issue is the hours. It's currently 6am-6pm which makes for very limited availability for people who work full-time jobs. We would basically only be able to make one run during the weeknights which I think totally slowed our progress with the move-out of our home. I wish they were open until at least 7pm if not 8pm. I would certainly appreciate longer access times. I'm sure the night owls are with me on this one. Other than that, I don't think you'll be disappointed. I haven't been!"
