    Great first time experience in Chicago

    I rented the unit to store my son’s stuff over the summer. The process from finding the location online, called the customer service line with questions, filling out the paperwork and moving in went very well. Once I made my reservation, I received emails to confirm. On the move-in date, the process to see a unit and fill out the paperwork was slow due to Covid restrictions. The staff in the office were very efficient, friendly and responsive. The move in went quickly despite the fact that it was a busy Saturday. I would rent here again.

    Great service

    We moved into self storage 1 on a Saturday and had incredible service. The staff was very professional, funny, and tended to all of our needs, especially the store manager, Colin. They were extremely flexible and organized. The truck they lent us was so extremely helpful and we couldn’t have been more grateful for it!

    Quick and Easy!

    The customer service at this facility is fantastic. The place is clean, well-maintained and they let us use their moving truck for free! Could not have asked for a better experience.

    No complaints - nice people, easy access, good location.

    Everything about this facility met my needs. They allowed me a chance to switch the rental size after viewing them, provided me a tour and access instructions, very good customer service.

    Friendly staff and solid facilities

    Had all I needed for storage purposes and move in - could fit my uhaul van in the garage, asked them for help multiple times, and there were plenty of carts and elevators for quick moving.

    Excellent facility and really amazing staff.

    I highly recommend this storage to others. As we live out of state and are storing our college student's apartment belongings for the summer, we did not know much about storage in Chicago. The manager of this facility, Colin, was very professional and extremely helpful. The facility is very efficient for moving in items, very secure, and extremely clean. Everyone working at this business was so nice. Again, I highly recommend this facility if you have storage needs.
