Generally, we like our experience with you. However, small things are irritating, like the fact that the door to the building our unit was in was broken and didn't shut for over a year and there is no electricity to our unit, so the the light fixture in the unit won't work--at least, that's what we were told when we complained. If I remember correctly, I also can't pay for my unit online, which is ridiculous.

EB's prices were the lowest...so I did not expect the most convenient nor cleanest place. It was pretty clean, but the convenience (e.g. getting keys for freight elevator access, narrow halls and doors, etc.) was as expected...not great, but not terrible either...just inconvenient.

We were unable to get to our storage unit due to an elevator outage. When we informed the office of this, they contacted the corporate office and gave us 1 month free. This was a pleasant surprise! We will tell everyone we know about Bob's - that is a guarantee!

Limited experience with different storage providers, but most of those we have seen or used were not well-maintained or seemed "iffy", so our expectations for storage providers in general were pretty low.

The entire time I rented there, the door by the elevator was broken and never shut properly. The elevator was in pretty bad shape with lack of maintenance and required the door to hit you to reopen. Multiple times that could have knocked me over as my hands were full loading items.

For the past couple years, facility maintenance was not impressive. The elevator I use was broken, doors were bent and didn't operate well. This seems to have been addressed recently, as things seem to have been fixed to the degree that they work now.
