Excellent customer service. A little bit too much paperwork for my taste, I prefer doing it online and then finalizing at the site but I m sure eventually they will change that to a more streamlined, modern way for people to rent

From my very beginning contact with Robert over the phone to speaking with him in person, Robert was very professional and knew his job really good. He took me to look at the unit that I’m now renting and his was very detailed in all areas of my unit, how to get around to it easy and explained everything. He ask if I had questions and when I did he answered with the upmost respect. I called several places today and I’m so glad I spoke with Robert. I hope his company knows what a valuable employee he is! Go see Robert and he will definitely take care of you!!! Shout out to Robert. Thanks so much, Cynthia Woodard

After having friends bring all the items down from our attic (some stored 27 years ago), we went to Southern Self Storage to see what climate controlled unit would be available. Robert not only helped us with options but took us to an available 10x15 which would suit our needs best. On Monday, he called to say it was available and we went to sign the contract and get the keys. During the week, when moving into the unit, Barry stopped by to offer water and ask if he could help in any way. Both gentlemen were very professional and very helpful. Our unit is cool and water-tight. We are very pleased and will recommend to all our friends. (Previous recommendation by our Vanessa Marmino).

Robert was very helpful, explaining the ins and outs for our new unit, offering options and showing us the available unit(which we snapped up).

The guys who work here are super friendly and informative. If you call, they will answer the phone, even if they are busy. Great at communicating.

The staff was awesome! However, I didn’t notice until I was moving my stuff in that the ceiling is ripped up over the door and it has been taped up. The tape is coming off and I am a bit concerned. Also, the door latch needs to be greased so it slides easier.

The units are clean, easy to access and our temperature controlled unit has been adequately maintained to ensure temp consistency. The buildings are clean, well maintained and kept secure. Could have earned five stars if they had kept their cost modest but two major increases in less than two years may put it in the “let’s look elsewhere” category. Prior to that, had not had an increase in four years.

The words "Stay Local" never rang more true. I needed a storage unit pretty quick thinking I would stop in Cube Smart. They might as well change the name to Cube Dumb. They changed the price on me then lied about needing home owners insurance to rent a unit. They did not care at all. Just said that was the way it was. So I split and went to Bay Mini Storage on Thomas drive. I could not have had a better experience. Quick and Easy and a better price. Ashley is the best! She answered all of my questions and was professional and courteous. She is always there, even on Sundays! If you need a storage go to Bay Mini!!

They keep their properties up to make sure everything is clean. I must say, that I've never encountered bugs or rats getting in my things like the other storages I've rented from in the past. Also, their prices are very reasonable as well. Anyone needing to rent should definitely try this place out. You won't regret it! I've been a returning customer for 3 years now and I'll continue to use this place if I ever need storage again in the near future.
