A staff member erroneously placed a lock on my storage unit preventing me from entering my unit for several days even though I made several attempts to reach the facility and management. A district manager named John contacted me after I complained telling me the staff didn't understand policy and apologized because he could do no more than offer a $20 credit. Soon after I received a notice from the facility informing me my rental rate would be increased in fewer than 30 days. I know for a fact that people live in this storage facility even after they were cited when a renter/tenant died in a unit.
They have no security at the 5801 W Charleston, Las Vegas, NV. While our Travel Trailer at this site, in January of this year, the car batteries, which were secured on the exterior of the trailer were stolen and the door window was broken. This week we found that scatters had trashed, stole and destroyed our property while staying in our trailer. While doing a police report, we found that several other units on the property were damaged including a large Cellular Tower, had several thousands of dollars of batteries stolen.
Extra Space provided no service for me other than another bait & switch experience. They were so nice while they signed me up, that when they nearly strong armed me to provide them with a positive 5* review, I was not too comfortable doing so before the fact; but they told me I could always rewrite it if I needed to in the future, so I complied. I later after the burn; I decided to correct it, and to my dismay - it wasn't doable! But after keeping up my efforts I finally succeeded and now the truth is out.
I only showed up to the location twice; once to sign up, then 10 days later to cancel. The two visit were starkly different, as well as they treated me on the way in, I was not treated well on the way out. That's ok, 'cause now I know they don't deserve my business; due to lack of transparency in their shady practices such as padding your bill with fees on top of other fees that were not discussed. They signed me up with a great rate; but that rate nearly doubled when I got the bill a week later! I decided to take my business elsewhere at EZ Storage a much more convenient location, where I was treated with care and respect; I actually got more space for less money! Extra Space stole my money! Plain & simple!!! They hide behind their corporate policies so they can steal from their customers! I never got to move my stuff in the unit! Bad business practices, GREEDY PROFITBOTS!!!
Besides the constant price hikes which appear on everyone's review, I highly question the integrity of this company - when I rented my storage unit I was informed that I would be refunded any unused time. Now, I have closed the unit and was informed that they do not provide refunds. Unfortunately, I have no evidence to back up my claim - I was told these things verbally - but at best this is miscommunication (and, by extension, mismanagement of the company) and at worst, downright deception. My advice: find someone else. PS: This won't let me give no stars but that's the actual rating I give them.
Horrible customer service and light bulb replacement in unit. Light bulbs are not working in my unit. I was not given when they would be replace - sometime within the month. Was told they could not tell when light bulbs burn out but I can tell which units in the vicinity of my unit had working light bulbs. Was told to just use my cell phone flashlight. That it should be good enough. Called customer service and I am just getting the run around concerning this situation. Do not use this company. This appears to be their track record - extremely poor customer service.

I rented a unit about 3 months ago and just got a notice in the mail let me know they were increasing my rent by 58%. I was paying $224 a month and they want $354 now! I went online and the online price for the same unit is $42 a month cheaper. I went in to try to have them fix this and they were unable to do anything stating that supply and demand caused the rate hike. Be warned that their rates posted will go massively up without little to no warning.
I have used Extra Storage Space for 4 years. Yes, I have dealt with the monthly increases which seems to come every 6 months. I have never had a problem paying my bill. With that said, I went to my unit yesterday to find mice droppings and chewed up books, magazines and boxes. I went to management with my problem and the first thing they were concerned with was if I purchased their insurance. Not, "I AM SORRY," or "SIR WHAT CAN I DO TO HELP." I would not recommend this facility! Think twice before calling this facility. There are better, cleaner and cheaper places in the area. BUYER BEWARE!!!
I have been with Extra Space for about two, until 3 months no major problems, except the continued price increases. Lately, I have had the monthly fee auto-deducted from my bank without my permission. I have no bills. Bill payments auto-deducted. I specifically went in and made sure it was not on auto 22 days ago and then this morning I wake up to a text that the money has been paid automatically. I have lost all confidence in this company and caution everybody to be alert to their unethical business dealings.
This place never tells you that it will go up in price every 3 months. I started at a ok price and then you receive a notice it will go up and then another one and a another. Before you know it the storage fee is as much as renting a house. This place is a rip off.
Buyer Beware!!! This company provides a very enticing price or new customer offering to get you into their space but once you are there they quietly start inflating your rate within just a few months. They mention in the contract that you may see a very slight market adjustment based on supply and demand however in their eyes the adjustment is always up and never down. I have two large units leased and both have seen a double digit percentage increase within just 3-4 months. After my most recent visit I noticed a large number of vacant units tagged as available and when checking online the prices has dropped tremendously for new customers while mine has continued to increase.
Also if calling to check on availability or pricing the reservation center will leave you to believe they have only one unit remaining in the size you need. I've complained once and got a partial reduction of their increase but really don't expect to see any relief from their constant price increases. Run from these crooks. You WILL 100% start seeing increases in your monthly rate once you have moved in knowing how inconvenient it would be for you to find another facility. I would encourage everyone to look at other options and sign a contract for a fixed rate that will not change. So Extra Space Storage has a different meaning for Supply and Demand... They have "Supply" and continue to "Demand" you pay more. You are being SCAMMED by this company. Run the other way.
My daughter in law died in a fiery car crash on October 15. She has all her belongings stored in Extra Storage (Tallahassee) as she was waiting to move into an apartment. She only had her name on the unit. Her daughter took the death certificate with her name on it as her daughter and my son's name as her husband and they said that not her or her husband can get the stuff out. Mona did not have a will and the key is gone. So they are paying for it and can not get into it. They said if they don't they will put all the stuff up for auction and sell it. Everything they own is in there. This is a horrible way to treat people. We just keep paying for it and they just keep taking the money, meanwhile they are holding her stuff hostage. We do not have money for an attorney. It's all the other expenses that we have had to incur.
I initially agreed to rent a storage unit from them at $50/mo. All is good right? Wrong! Monthly rent has steadily increased to now $123/mo. Shame on me for not checking my statements even it's only been 8 months. Called them, no return call so I drove over and nothing but lies. Essentially, they told me they never quoted me $50/mo and are at liberty to raise monthly rate as they please. I'm moving out ASAP. Stay away from these crooks.
I’ve been with Extra Space Storage and another storage company for 10 years. Extra Space raises my monthly costs significantly every 5 months or so without notification. Every 5 months I have to fight to have Them put back to where it was or at least close to where my cost was. It has doubled over 10 years. That’s pretty amazing. The Other storage company when they plan on raising rates let me know BEFOREHAND. Amazing right. Its rates have gone up about 20-25% over the same 10 years. If you want to have to fight with an unethical, non-transparent storage company every 4-6 months about its new undisclosed new higher rates then feel free to use Extra Space Storage. I would suggest using ANY OTHER company.
Extra Space Storage Warner Irvine California - Absolutely horrible management. I experienced the same thing as a reviews. They're very nice. I explain my needs what I would be doing. I have been bothered and given rules regulations verbally that aren't totally the opposite of what I was told before I rented. The worst non-professional. Nothing but lies, harassment, disrespect, threats. I've only been in there for 25 days and am giving my notice. I would never recommend anybody to use this place this business. These complaints to the same all over the country. They don't care about their customers, they won't give you any paperwork, there are no rules and regulations except not to follow someone else out without using your gate code, yet they make up the rules as they go along. I say rules, they change the terminology from Rules regulations guidelines even a dress code.
Are threatened with eviction. Additionally the access to the storage units is very narrow today. There was three storage for 4 with stuff completely blocking everything and blocking me in. When I try to talk to a manager or CEO or anybody in the company they passed the buck. They change the name of the manager and say, "Oh that's the manager from the other building the other unit." It's not worth wasting your time dealing with these people. This company, the employees and management are absolutely horrible after you pay.
It will not provide paperwork for my rules and regulations. Even if you asked all they will give is a receipt. Stone end up getting played by these people or this business Extra Space Storage. There should be a class action lawsuit or I will file a lawsuit myself. I have recorded their rudeness also threats also have video. People's claim for a lawsuit against this company. It's not just hardship when you leave. But the total lack of giving accurate information guidelines receipts that in itself is not legal. Not alone threats and intimidation harassment and the upset, it's unbelievably HORRIBLE!
My business has been a customer of Extra Space Self Storage on 620 W. Edmond Road since 2013. The company went through an ownership change in 2016. The new ownership brought on a new lease agreement, which was supposedly mailed out to all of their customers. The problem is my business does not have a copy of that contract nor does Extra Space Self Storage, meaning that both parties never signed the document to make it a legally binding contract. In this new contract, they state that they do not accept partial payments. Their former contract states nothing about not accepting partial payments. I had a payment returned to me because it was 10 days late, and I had not been made aware of this clause in their new contract because the only contract that I have and Extra Space Self Storage has is the previous owner’s agreement that does not state that Extra Space Self Storage does not accept partial payments.
Anyone with good business sense knows that since there is no executed lease contract signed that states they don’t accept partial payments then I am not obligated to those terms. This whole situation has been a major inconvenience to me and my business. Extra Space Self Storage is very lucky that I have not pursued legal action for their carelessness and unethical practices. I am sure they are taking advantage of people who aren’t aware of the fact that if they have not signed their new agreements then they cannot legally be held to those terms of the new agreement. I have decided to take my business elsewhere, but I wanted to make the community aware of the unethical ways of this business.
I have been with them for nearly a year. I always dealt with Paul **. He comes off sincere & honest in the beginning. He has done nothing but lie to me, raise my rent $23.00, tell me its now mandatory to get insurance. My unit door was wide open and items gone, he did not follow the proper steps to file a claim. They are rip-offs. Then he wanted to get mad because I wanted to file. Considering the insurance was something I did not want, he claimed it's now mandatory. I am disgusted with them.
Extra Space Storage in Laurel, Maryland is not a good place to store and keep your things. The management through the last year has gone way downhill. I know this because I have stored items with them for several years at different locations. I moved to this side of town a few years ago and Mason... The manager at the time was on the job! He also lived there. The facility was clean, professional and nice to deal with. However, the new management is AWFUL!!! Mason left suddenly and the new people... Greg and the regional guy... Don are unprofessional and trying to save every penny so the place is filthy with trash everywhere. Evidence of mice and snakes! No one lives on site anymore and the security gate is broken a lot!
They screwed up my payments by applying them incorrectly and almost sent my personal items to auction. I was lied to by Greg and I tried to contact corporate but they turn it back to the local regional and/or Greg and you get nowhere. I tried several times to speak with a corporate headquarter manager but they never called me back. I have stored with Extra Space in Frederick, Germantown, Bethesda and Laurel for years! They are not the same company they use to be!!! Terrible conditions and bad management caused me to move out. Unfortunately, this cost money out of my pocket so I am warning anyone who tries to store at this facility beware!!! Just so you know when Mason was manager and I received courtesy calls the week before payment was due, the place was very secure and he lived on site, the halls were clean and no food or evidence of mice were there.
I wrote a stellar review for this company then. I had to rewrite today this bad review because my experience with this company has changed for the worse. Greg told me bad information and when I talked to him again he changed his story... He lied to me and then threatened me that he would have me thrown off the property when I told him he was lying and I was so mad I could have spit! I used a couple of words to express my feelings and he didn't like it. He is arrogant and he misrepresented the company and the services to me. I strongly recommended his firing to a complaint line they have set up in Utah but they turned it back to him and some guy named Don. There are NO checks and balances with this organization. No accountability! I finally spoke to a woman named Sabrina in Annapolis and dealt with her until I pulled all of my personal things out of there.
The day I was loading a truck with my movers another family was also moving out. To their surprise, they found mold all over their furniture. They showed it to me and explained that it should not have happened because they stored in a climate controlled building. So, it is filthy, dirty, not climate controlled, gates are broken most of the time and no one lives on the property anymore! The management is rude and unprofessional! I have moved to a locally run company and it is well managed with someone living on site. Very clean and no evidence of mice. This is very disappointing to me because it didn't have to be this way. I think this is a systemic condition of the entire company. The complaint line in Utah is a scam. I hope this is helpful and gives fair warning to any unsuspecting person just trying to store/care for their personal things that mean so much.
I've stored items in the storage unit for several years and it has done nothing but increase, increase, increase and when I ask why they give me some bogus story that for my specific unit, it's the current going price. This increase in rent has happened steadily every six months. Under NO circumstance should you leave any items in this storage unit for over six months, a year tops. It should be illegal for the owners to be able to increase the rent on the units as they do. It's nothing more than AMERICAN GREED!!
I stored my things with Extra Space for three years, over the course of which the price of my unit doubled. While Extra Space mentioned periodic price increases when I signed up, I had the impression they would be uncommon - not so. The price hikes happen semi-randomly and without explanation or justification, and with little warning. While most companies reward their customers for longevity, Extra Space punishes those who stick around. Total rip-off! Avoid like the plague!
Just found out from storage insurance in 19 days this location sold. Never received anything from storage company so I could make other arrangements. Have no idea who purchased after numerous phone calls today. Insurance canceled 10/8/17. What about my stuff on 10/1?
This company went out their way to tell me that the lock on storage was not properly locked and I was out of town and could not go to the storage to fix. They sent me an authorization immediately and changed the lock at no charge and mailed me the key and securing my belongings immediately after noticing the issue. I would recommend this company for great customer service.
Made an online reservation, called and talked to the on site manager twice, get there and they say, "Yes we have the unit but we can't honor the price you were quoted." I told them I had it in my email and showed him my "reservation and price." He said my reservation got cancelled and they he couldn't get it back. I would have to pay the higher rate. Called the manager above him, she was totally useless. Called above them, they just really don't care at all about customer service. Don't bother with this company unless you want to pay a premium for a storage unit.
Watch out for these guys. The Company that runs these storage units change the prices of your monthly rent at a flip of the hat... They have INCREASED MY RENT up the rent 3 times IN THE LAST YEAR and I do not see them stopping anytime soon... My most recent claim is due to the lack of ATTENTION they give to the PROPERTY. I had a flat tire due to some constructions crews that they let work out of there. It's fine because they too should be able to rent but after they leave the management does not maintain the property... I was told that they are so busy making emails and cleaning out units. If the storage units are so great then why all the turn overs???
I actually had the DM OF THE COMPANY basically tell me it's not their problem in regards to the flat tire... These guys are the reason no ones wants to deal with a storage unit. TAKE CARE OF YOUR PROPERTY. That's what I pay for monthly... Be good at your job or do not do it and the FIRST AND MOST IMPORTANT THING IS YOUR CUSTOMERS NOT EMPLOYEES... with out customers there are no employees needed...
Bianca at University Blvd Store, Orlando FL was so rude and snobby. Laughing at my family for not having a unit we reserved and drove to with a truck full. She kept smiling sarcastically and doing rude gestures. Gave a five percent discount. Wooow. Greedy and rude. Called corporate to complain after driving back and forth for two hours. Heather at Utah corporate was the same snobby and rude started to Hugh and laugh to her co-workers putting me on mute as I talked. I worked call centers. I can hear the background fade instantly. She did nothing but say she will get back to me in a few days... Horrible service. Bunch of rude prissy college garbage girls who are horrible at work. Bunch of brats. Go elsewhere. Worst place ever. Roaches are there and its humid AC turns off at night. Beware of this business.
I have three parking areas that I pay each month on time. Also have two that are the same size and I get charged a $20 difference on them. The RV parks no I started out paying $70, now paying close to $100 a month. I called to complain. Well I just get this very rude women named Samantha who thinks it's her company obviously. I told there is no need to respond to me like that hence it's not her company. She needs to learn customer service the right way and not let her personal life interfere with work. As of right now I am looking for somewhere else to park my stuff where I don't get surprised increases. It's the Extra Storage place in Dacula off Auburn road/highway 324. Don't go there.
I have rented from Extra Space Storage in Mt. Clemons, Mi. for 3 to 4 years in total. I upgraded from a 10x10 to a 10x15 last year. The reviews that speak about price increases are correct but all storage rentals continue to up the price simply Because They Can. Extra Space upped my price for the second time and I gave them notice. On my last day to move, there were heavy storms, so I contacted the office and asked for a 1 day extension. The employee was very nice and granted me the extra day... Then they charged me the FULL price.
Bottom line; NEVER trust someone at their word at Extra Space. When I attempted to contact corporate they just put you in a circle of automation so there is no way to even attempt to resolve an issue. DONE with Extra Space. By the way, here's a tidbit for you. My bank told me to NEVER use a debit card for the monthly payments. Always use your bank acct. and routing number for your payments. Cancelling and disputing issues like this are much easier. I was told that storage facilities are notorious for continuing to take payments after you have moved out. Just an FYI.
I've been using The storage facility for almost 6 months now and they raised my monthly fee $33.48. I went from paying $93.26 to paying $126.74. What kind of company will raise the rate that high without any notice. It hasn't even been a year. Then I went online and there are bigger units for cheaper than the monthly price that I'm currently paying. SMH.
I am above angry with the way my son was treated at the facility in Corina on Vincent after a spending the morning there going thru boxes to gather all the required documents to fill out his FAFSA grant for his second year of college. The male manager asked him to leave the property. He told him that it was obvious that someone was living there. We have not spent one night in that place. In fact we live at **. A home which my family have lived in for 45 year. I have always used this storage facility. I can recall at least 5 times in the last 20 years. I have a nephew who is currently renting 2 spaces in the same facility. It's paid for in full. He then turned the power. My parents have used it from time to time as well. We are long time loyal customers.
Apparently since I put my mattress on the floor instead of standing it up so it would not become lumpy... we are living there. We are not! And I feel humiliated. There is absolutely no proof that we are living there. I am LIVID!! I won't be there much longer. Perhaps 4 more weeks and I will be moving on. If I don't move my stuff next week to the storage down the street on account of being treated so poorly and rudely. No wonder he has to ask you to do leave a good customer review as you initiate your rental. No one in their right mind would do so if he didn't beg for you to do so, and trust me that fake customer service ends the very next day... I have a feeling he tells everyone that comes down the unit they wanted, "Just rented". In the five min it took you to hang up the phone and walk to the office... larger sales possibly for a larger bonus.
I seen several of the size I wanted available the very next day and no moving trucks moving them anyone out... being that our family home is so full and the storage is so close to where we do live. We do go by everyday. Sometimes every other. I see other customers at their storages everyday too. I only pick up a couple days of clothing for us and then I wash it and trade outfits and return to my family home... we will being doing this for the next few weeks. Don't want to clutter my family's home with our things. If there is a problem or this is against the rules let me know so I can update my customer review. There is one man that comes every day that has turned his space into a workshop. He then turned the power off in our unit so now when we go inside we can't see anything since our unit has no power.
As advertised will my rate go down? Or will it be fixed? We are in a deep hallway and even in the daytime it is impossible to see and I have 4 broken toes from tripping in the darkness. Between all my family members and myself I can recall more than 30 times we have rented a unit there. This is how they treat their loyal customers. They assume and judge with absolutely no proof. Look at your surveillance video before accusing people of things they are not doing.
Extra Space Self Storage has raised our rent from 32.00 to now 100.00. We have been customers for 2 years and feel the increase in rate is unacceptable. It seems to me that they offer you a great deal then do not seem to care about your welfare. We chose Extra Space because our parents kept their 5th wheel there. Our parents are no longer there either due to the fact that their 3500.00 compressor and thousands of dollars worth of tools STOLEN right from Extra Space property. When it was brought to management's attention, they seemed to not care at all!
So please beware that Extra Space Self Storage will lure you in with a great deal and RAISE the amount of your rent every 6 months faithfully!!!! Also beware if you park your 5th wheel there or any other vehicle outside thieves will climb wall and take any/all your valuables. The reason we did not move sooner is because my husband had a terrible accident at work and is now handicap (basically one handed). After this final raise in rent of 100.00... We will not be ripped off anymore. Sincerely, a VERY DISAPPOINTED EXTRA SPACE STORAGE CUSTOMER!!!
I am a current customer of Extra Space Storage located in Atlanta, Georgia. I am very disappointed in the company and their service. A little more than a year ago, they had a facility in the Atlanta area suffer a flood when the roof collapse. They eventually repaired the roof and discounted the service at that time. Since then the company's service has been horrible. Their website routinely fails. The phone billing service fails, and then they want you to pay a penalty for late payment when it is their fault. I have multiple cases with the firm and they have not responded. I will be filing additional complaints with versus state and regulatory agencies.
