Both of the store managers at the McGrath Hwy Somerville location, Jose and Chuck, went out of their way to be helpful, above and beyond the call of duty. Really made our move a lot easier, thanks guys!

My only complaint, and it's a small one, is that I did not have 24-7 access to my storage unit. I understand how that might increase your costs, however. One option that could be offered is a fee-based or schedulable extended hours schedule. The only reason I closed the unit was that I no longer needed the extra space.

Chuck is one great guy! Genuinely friendly. He was the first face I saw upon relocating to Cambridge. I could keep renting an empty unit just to do stop-and-chats with him. Chuck's wife is one lucky woman!

In my three visits since getting my space, I have struggled with the availability, selection, and quality of the carts. On my first visit, the only available cart had a sticky, malfunctioning wheel which made it very hard to maneuver. My second visit,the only available cart was two-tiered, which was hard for the furniture I had to move. On my most recent visit, another customer let me use their cart on the managers' urging after I had been waiting for 20-30 minutes for any carts to become available. Please buy more carts and get rid of the old ones. This is a major part of the service I pay for and a relatively minor expense on your part.

Excellent at all levels. What I loved is how well the space has worked, well lit and open early which enabled avoiding the rush of traffic. Your associates were splendid and I could not be more pleased with this arrangement. Peter

I am very happy with this storage location. The employees are always nice to me and helpful. I have spoken to others about my satisfaction. Also, your lobby is beautiful and welcoming. It is the nicest storage facitity I have ever used. I like the fact the storage facility is located next to the office in case I need help with anything. This is a very nice business and employees are nice. Nice employees make all the difference as I don't frequent businesses where employees are rude, and this is never the case with this facility. Thanks for everything.
