Storage boxes were scary-looking but good value
I was expecting an actual storage unit- the kind I've rented before, ie a metal-walled room with a door. These are storage boxes- when I got there I was surprised to find I was paying $50 per month for a wooden box that had to be retrieved via forklift. It looked rickety and the wood was extremely rough, ie it had lots of splinters and I was afraid it would scratch my furniture. I probably wouldn't have gone ahead with the rental but I had to return the moving truck and didn't have a lot of choice. That being said, the space was FAR cheaper than anything I could find in DC, the staff were helpful, and when I retrieved my things after about 4 months everything was fine (except for a pretty unpleasant smell from the hot wooden box.) If you're looking for value, this is it; if you want top-notch security and protection for your things, probably pass.
