I was pleasantly and QUIITE surprised about the great customer service! I visited the location once before move-in. The all staff members that I interacted with both prior to and during my move-in were fantastic and graciously answered all my questions and showed me around. Again, I'm impressed, because being born and raised down south, I'm just not used to getting good customer service in Chicago (in general), so the experience was quite a welcomed surprise. Thank You.

The staff over at south shore is incredible! Ms. Denise is so personable and professional. She really takes care of the customers and we stand in line just to have her service us. I rented a storage unit about 30 mins before they were supposed to close. Ms. Denise stayed with me to unsure I was safe, especially since non of my helpers showed up. I appreciate Ms. Denise.

Roaches. The units are infested with cockroaches. Every time I accessed my storage I saw them crawling around in my unit and on my things. Disgusting. Friendly staff though.

The staff here is helpful. They just didn't have accurate inventory online so I had to get furniture dollies at the south loop location / they held my trailer overnight so it wouldn't sit at my place.
