I loved Metro Storage in Des Plaines. The price was so much better than any other storage units I looked at. Eliza, the manager was helpful and efficient. She consistently provided the help I needed as I moved from 2 storage units to 1 and then finally was able to move my belongings out permanently. The facility was always clean, tidy, and easy to access. I highly recommend storing your things at Metro Storage in Des Plaines! ,

Eliza, the manager, was exceedingly professional, yet friendly, and patient with my many questions. I really appreciate her assistance through every step of the process as this was my first experience with off-site storage. There was another agent when I went in to purchase a key and do the paperwork whose name I don’t remember. He was also very helpful. Thank you!

Really nice and clean facility. I spoke with a polite man named Vincent who called me and stayed an hour later for me past the closing time ! I was rushing to get over there and he stayed later which I really appreciate. He took his time and showed me the unit and went over everything with me with no rush at all. I feel safe with storing my belongings at Metro Self Storage and the security is on top of things here unlike other storage facilities.
