Been storing here for years. I’m pretty absentminded so I end up late on my bill sometimes, but they can always get me squared away pretty quick and smooth. The one guy who works several locations is particularly helpful, unfortunately I forgot his name. Maybe I can edit it in later.

great experience here. no issues with my unit. my only real complaint is that you can’t get in after 9:00pm. (unless you’re lucky enough to sneak in behind someone who is grandfathered in with 24 hour access) pricing was competitive when I signed up, and I think I only had one rate hike over the year+ that I was there.

Needed short term storage and chose Metro in Palatine. From start to finish it was a fantastic experience. Beginning with Dusty in the office being friendly, informative, helpful in choosing a unit, holding the one I wanted for a few days and always available to answer questions through to moving out a few months later. The facility is clean, easy to get in and out, well lit and hours are convenient. And if you leave a message – they actually call you back! I forget his coworkers name, but she was wonderful as well. I’d use Metro Storage again without question.
