Yes, Zaul was extremely helpful. He explained everything so thoroughly I didn't have to ask questions afterwards. He got me the best deal that suited my needs at the time and it was a very smooth transaction. I felt like I was just having a conversation with a friend.

The automatic lights on the second floor, where my units were that kept going off, were annoying. And, the automatic loading bay door that didn't stop and smashed my fingers is a little scary. Other than that, the storage units themselves worked out very well for my needs.

I have an alert set to remind me of the monthly rental fee due- and I have an autopay setup. I would really like to receive an alert when payment is posted to my account. You already have my email address and I would find this to be far more convenient than logging on each month to verify my payment was received...and THAT is how you could exceed my expectations.

We wish we'd found you years ago--being able to free up space in our home was a real blessing. Our reason for leaving was simply that we have enough space in our new home for all our things. The only detractors from an otherwise amazing experience-- 1. a group of "scrappers" that seemed to be hanging out for a long time one Saturday morning didn't present the security 2. hard to find carts at times

I left my personal items in a storage unit for two years, and everything was exactly how I left it when I returned. I was easily able to pay my bill while out of the state, and was confident that my belongings were in a safe and reliable place.
