OVERALL RATING

I was able to rent online. They call it rapid rental. Amazing experience. I had a smooth online experience and was able to fill information out quickly as well as retrieve my contract within 24hours of finalization. I then recieved a courtesy call from Lauren, who is an extra space storage rep at 7106-79th street storage, and she was very professional, effiecient with the information i needed as well as thoughtful and informative. She explained that my lock would be safely stored in my unit as well as making sure I knew where my access code was and other info. She also said she would be able to show me everything in person if available. The next day Lauren wasn't there but Martino was who is the manager. Martino was very professional, enthusiastic, helpful, patient, elaborative, which is a plus because I really need detail and informative as well. He showed me how to access inperson, where to retrieve dolly's, where to use elevators and how to ensure my storage was locked properly. Martino also gave me important information about my contract and how to go about correcting or needing help in the future. I was truly impressed by both Lauren and Martino. I pray they continue to be blessed and that their positions are increased. I highly recommend this location 79th and Kenwood. You both gave me a great experience keep it up. Stay encouraged Nikole T. Also: I forgot to say how clean it was. The entire facility was sparkling clean and this is a huge location. My storage was very clean as well. No incentives was given to write this review these are all my true experiences and will write more reviews on location in a few months. Thank you kindly Nikole T.

OVERALL RATING

It was great working with Martino. The great customer service started with my phone call. He was pleasant and informative about the information I was acquiring about. He then was patient on my indecisiveness on what size I wanted. When I finally decided the unit I wanted, Martino showed me how to lock the unit up. He then let me try so that I could know how to work the lock when I returned. He explained the contract and I was very satisfied about my new storage space. In 15 minutes I can back to get a larger unit and Martino did a fantastic job in assisting me with my updated unit. The building was neat and clean as it should be. I recommend this facility to everyone!

Response from Extra Space Storage (4/14/2021)
