The associates were friendly and knowledgeable. We checked several storage areas and found one we liked quickly. It was clean and free of cobwebs and best of all, there is great music being piped in. Made the move enjoyable.

My first storage experience and it was a good one! Would recommend. The only critique is the availability of certain dollys. Most of the dollys were flatbed, but there is only one available of the one with the sides. This is in high demand on busy days and caused us to have to wait for quite a while for it to free up.

This might sound like I'm making this up, but James and Vanessa are two amazing people. Always friendly, always helpful, always smiling... and always patient with me and my late payments. I wish they worked EVERYWHERE I go. I also hope they get bonuses from my late payments! hehehe Seriously though, they are great people, and the facility is always in top shape. (Well, the elevator was down for about a week last month, but that's not THEIR fault. I'd also like to pay about 50% less, but that's not their fault either.) I actually have a friend I will be referring to you guys, so maybe I'll even get a referral bonus? Wink wink.

The team at Uncle Bob's (#432) are great! We sold our condo but the home that we were going to purchase failed the home inspection so we were scrambling to find a bigger storage space AND a place to live in 3 days. The team at store 432 were on top of things and they made a chaotic situation less stressful.

#1 thing is that when the location was transferred to Uncle Bob's that the prices would go up and they didn't! I am extremely happy that I wasn't "screwed" over. #2 I noticed that the location now has music playing when you go to your storage locker room. That is an awesome plus!!! #3 The level of service is incredible at this location. They care about how everything is done and making it as simple as possible.
