Excellent facility, safe, great staff..I highly recommend Strong Box for storage of family treasures

I have had a large storage locker at the Strongbox on Orleans for eight years where I store, rugs, antique furniture and a number of paintings. When I sold my home in California, my children asked me to hold on to these things they hope to use in their homes in the future. I have been delighted with the Strongbox facility. It is extremely well maintained, clean, and safe. The security is excellent. I feel perfectly comfortable storing our family treasures there. The staff has been extremely helpful. Audrey, the manager, is a total delight as is her staff. They always go out of their way to accommodate my needs. I highly recommend this facility.

Choose the space with the ceiling and the wall attached

The storage price is reasonable for its size and location in Chicago. I put stuff in the (smallest?) storage as much as filling the taxi three times, but still have left space (towards the ceiling) in the storage.

My storage space's walls were all wood. The ceiling is a thick metal net, but was not connected to my storage space's wall, so my storage space has a open ceiling. If anyone wants to look into my storage, they could with the rolling stairs next to the elevator.

I don't have valuables in my storage so I didn't even get insurance. However, next time I choose my storage I will be look out for those with open ceilings.

The approximately $10 per month insurance covers maximum $3000. THE INSURANCE WAS NOT REQUIRED which made me decide on this storage than those which required insurance. I read an (ABC?) article that the storage companies which required insurance were (illegally) sharing the profits with the insurance companies.

Storage tip: I will try not to use any mothballs next time and rather use all plastic bags or containers. I learned the lesson that the smell of mothballs (even if they're "lavender scented" they smell toxic) is very hard to get rid of.

The facility and staff are great, and I got an incredible deal!

My one line summary looks like a typical 'customer review' ad, but I swear it's genuine. My friend and I got to the storage facility on Sunday, it's in the Lincoln Park area so seemed relatively safe to put my stuff there--and this storage was the only one open until 4 o'clock on Sunday. Most days they're open until 6pm, so that works out pretty nicely for me and my schedule. The staff was pretty friendly and efficient, the facility was really, really clean. Of course, the big thing for me was the deal I got from reserving my space via sparefoot. Most facilities in this area, with storage as large as the one I got, go for about $60+ Here, they gave me a pro-rated price for the month of January, and of course I paid only 37 dollars for the entire month of February. If I keep my things there for longer than the month of February, my rate won't change until June of 2012. Hello?! That's insane! I love it. I also added my friend's name to the list of people allowed into my storage, and they gave us a lock with a couple sets of keys for both of us. Overall, it was a great experience, and I'd definitely encourage people to take up the deal on sparefoot and use this storage facility!
