Very good storage facility

I really like the storage facility for many reasons. They have excellent customer service with a smile on their face. They are very thorough with their information and always there to answer as many questions as you have. Darlene and Kim are very good at what they do and are very knowledgeable and organized. I really appreciate them both.My storage unit was very clean and ready to go. I would definitely use this storage facility in the future and recommend it to anyone.

Great experience!

Darlene helped me get checked in quickly and showed me to my unit. The outside unit was clean and easy to open. She showed me how to work the lock and make sure my unit was locked. Great experience. Thanks Darlene, for all your help.

Friendly people, competitive prices and a clean inside space.

Needed a small climate controlled space for clothes. Life Storage on 4929 Shell Road in Virginia Beach had a great price on monthly storage. I feel confident in the staff, facility and neighborhood to keep stuff safe, secure and in good condition until needed again.

Quick and easy

Didn't know this easy to use service was available. Great price offered which was cheaper than the facility offered. Allowed me the opportunity to compare side by side pricing with other near by facilities..

Ellen in Virginia Beach ROCKS!

Ellen Masterson at the Shell Road office in Virginia Beach, is AMAZING! She was so helpful with getting us set up.....and because we arrived at 5:45pm, she ended up sticking around after-hours, just to make sure we were taken care of! Thank you, Uncle Bob's!

Recommended: No

Uncle Bobs was really really friendly, efficient and helpful. They give you free usage of their moving truck for a whole day with renting a unit. they are not climate controlled but they are secure and clean. the staff is very knowledgable and the environment was full of character. they have a resident cardinal who likes to look at himself in your car mirror.

Nice surprise

Easiest time renting a storage unit ever! Darlene was super sweet and helpful. Took no time at all to rent unit and begin moving in. Never realized they were there until yesterday. Only (not big) issue was that the hallway to my unit smelled a little funky...not the worse but a little unpleasant.

A few move-in issues

Made a reservation for storage unit through Sparefoot for $47/month. When I went in to sign contract, unit was priced at $51/month. Representative on site was not able to make change to computer generated contract, or to the amount that was billed against my credit card. She had to make pen changes to contract, and issue me a credit against following month's rent in order to reflect pricing from reservation rate. Additionally, when I needed to gain access to the unit (night before overseas deployment) I was unable to enter facility due to the fact that automated gate was broken. I called emergency number three times over the course of about two hours, and was told that area manager would contact me in order to get me access to facility. Area manager did not make contact with me prior to my leaving US.
