OVERALL RATING

The service with Extra Space Storage was always excellent and the space was easily accessible. My only complaint would be the rate at which the monthly cost of my unit raised, which doubled over the course of one year.

Great service, perfect location and access, clean & spacious. The only drawback was price (it seemed like it was raised every 6 months!). Nevertheless, the staff was always available to explain and to try to give us a deal.

I have way too much stuff in my house. Every few years I take a load here. One day our kids can empty it. They might enjoy it you never know what they might find as a surprise. Cost here is reasonable to declutter the stuff that is not trash that you have no room for.

Response from Extra Space Storage (3/10/2021)

At Extra Space Storage, we do our best to provide high quality, yet affordable spaces for our customers to store their belongings. We're so happy to hear you feel good about your rental and appreciate your business! Thanks for your kind words R. Don’t hesitate to reach out at 888-STORAGE if you need anything.

OVERALL RATING

The good: I liked my unit and the location. I liked the quality of climate control, and I paid a good price for the proximity to DC. The bad: I think navigating the units and determining where your space is could be simplified with more signs or guidance. I imagine that pre-covid, the staff would personally show people to their new units. Trying to figure it out ate into my time. I discovered mice droppings along with shredded paper on the floor when I was moving out. Most of my my things were in plastic boxes and saran wrapped, but I imagine that the mice would be problematic for someone with cardboard boxes. Like other storage units, the price is subject to raises sometimes. Don't even think about trying to open your units without gloves if you're sporting a manicure.

Response from Extra Space Storage (3/8/2021)

Thanks for renting with us in Extra Space Storage, Sarah! We love the climate control storage units because they do an especially great job protecting your items from harsh weather. We appreciate you taking the time to leave us your feedback. We will make sure to review your thoughts internally. We're sorry to hear about your experience.

OVERALL RATING

I called with a problem and the response that I received from Carmen was better than I could have imagined. I was asked to review my experience here which I never ever do because, "if you have nothing nice to say you should not say it", is a rule that I live by. This is the 2nd review that I have done in a very long time. Carmen greeted me with good old-fashioned excellent customer service. That may not sound like much but in today's world it means everything to me. She was courteous, pleasant, honest, direct and compassionate and most of all Carmen helped me with my problem. All the while I was treated with the utmost respect as if I mattered. She also provided me with other solutions to further assist me. In sum, my experience could not have been any better and I can honestly recommend the facility and Carmen without reservation. Larry Cohen
