First-time storage unit renter, super pleased so far
My husband and I were unable to lock down a new apartment by the time our last lease ended, so we ended up needing a storage unit to put most of our stuff in while we're staying with a friend. We found a deal at SLO City Storage for 1/2 off first months rent and a free truck rental, which was such a God-send. We only had to make two trips across town, which was a much appreciated blessing. On top of that, we ended up accidentally sleeping through the check-in time the next morning and thought we'd have to pay for the truck, but the manager worked with us and let us return it free of charge after hearing that we're trying to be really careful watching every dollar we spend. We even got two free Angels tickets to boot, so I don't think we could have found a better value elsewhere (not to mention the free baseball game to look forward to!)
The facility itself is in great shape -- well maintained, secure (you get a personal passcode that gives you access to the front gate and you have to use it to exit the premises as well), and safe-feeling. The service was great too -- I booked a reservation online and the manager left me a voicemail minutes later letting me know he was leaving for lunch so we wouldn't show up to check in while he was out. I am very pleased with our experience so far and would definitely recommend SLO City Storage to others.
