“We needed a place to store our things as we begin the process of moving into our first house. I've gone into other storage facilities and Storage Centre is by far the best. I really liked the fact that their employees took the time to take us around the facility and show us the different storage rooms to figure out the size we needed. They were incredibly personable and made the entire process easy and painless.”
