Great Property Manager But Beware the Insurance Ploy
The property managers at two Public Storage locations I visited were outstanding. The manager at location I ultimately chose to use did a great job helping me get set up and going. The technology of gate codes and text notifications is wonderful. I give the property manager and the technology at Public Storage 5 Stars.
My only complaint is with the corporate leadership who try to slip a sizable monthly insurance charge into the paperwork to sign. As I was signing it, I realized I was not signing a waiver of insurance, but signing up for insurance. So, I read the insurance document and it referred to clause 18 in the rental contract. I read clause 18, and it says, in my opinion, the renter assumes all risk.
But during the rental process, the corporate position is that you have to have either personal insurance for your belongings, or buy insurance from them. But the contract, at least in my reading, did not say that. Furthermore, I could not rent the unit until I brought my personal homeowner insurance policy in and showed Public Storage that I carry insurance on my possessions. In my opinion, that was an hour long waste of my time to make that round trip. The email sent to me in preparation for the rental never mentioned bringing proof of insurance. It said:
"WHAT YOU'LL NEED AT MOVE-IN
A government-issued ID for paperwork
A copy of this email (recommended)"
So, be aware of this ploy to charge you for insurance, and bring your homeowner /renter insurance policy with you (if you have insurance)!

I would think the storage unit would have been a little bit cleaner when i moved in, but the service was top notch. My door on my unit would not stay up, which made moving in a bit difficult.

The Staff at the Summer Avenue location (I forgot her name!) has been very helpful. I started the reservation process online and I was contacted by her a short time later to schedule a time to come in for a tour and to complete the paperwork. The space is very clean and secure. The rate is very reasonable, too.

For a 5x5 piece of space these people sure make their money! I let myself get talked into payin $40 a month for that! Don't get me wrong, I need the space, but seriously, It was advertised at $29 which still too much, but then you have to get insurance(that's at least understandable), but shoot that's a lotta dough for a 5x5 piece of floor. The associates were nice enough but lacked a little in terms of general info about things.
