Have had a storage unit for a number of years at the Des Plaines location. Some of the previous managers have had less than ideal people skills. Had a billing issue the other day that needed to be addressed. This is the second time I've dealt with the new manager, Mark. Not sure under what conditions he arrived at this location, but I have to say he was great to deal with...extremely personable, and professional. - Patrick Kennedy

Never used a storage facility before Mark was not only very helpful but also EXTREMELY patient with me and all of my questions & concerns. He took the time to explain everything.

Mark is indeed a great manager. He worked with me to find the space I need for a reasonable price in a not rushing manner. Definitely, this is a place to put on the top of the list when looking for a self storage facility. After about 7 months I had to move out my stuff. The experience was great! Excellent customer service! The storage itself is well organized, safe and yet accessible during convenient hours.

Only have been there since 07/17 But staff and Mgr I met today on 07/19 was Super efficient, helpful, and kind. So far so good . Love convenience and Staff ???? If I had any suggestions it would be a normal size garbage can on property to toss water bottles, cans, soft drinks etc I realize some people would take advantage of a dumpster But a small garbage can for discard would be Nice ????

I needed to store some household items so, following the advice of a good friend, I visited the Metro Self Storage facility in Des Plaines. Mark, the gentleman who manages this facility, was extremely helpful and quite professional. He provided a tour of the facility; detailed the features and benefits of Metro’s property, parking and available storage units. Once I decided on a unit, Mark thoroughly explained the rental policies and pricing and demonstrated how to access the building from the door nearest my storage unit. I couldn’t be more pleased with my decision to rent from Metro Self Storage in Des Plaines.

Mark was wonderful with the entire moving process. He showed me all the possible storage units and gave me recommendations based on how many items I would be storing. He also gave my fiancé a referral discount. He was very patient with us despite multiple phone calls, thanks Mark! Most importantly, he helped facilitate drop off of my storage items when I wasn’t present and oversaw the delivery of those items. Moving, in general, is stressful; but Mark was a total professional and made this part of the process as stress-free as possible!

I had a very positive experience dealing with Marc. Very exceptional customer service. I had a client who was frantic about getting a storage locker to put her belongings in while her condo was under remodel. Marc took it upon himself to make sure she was provided enough storage for her belongings, reassuring her that her stuff would be safe and worked with me, her contractor to get her all set up for the movers to bring her stuff. He was very accommodating especially when we were in a hurry to get this all set up. The move in and move out was made easy and very appreciative. Marc was always available to answer any and all questions. I would highly recommend the DesPlaines metro storage. Working with Marc was a pleasure.

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.

Just got a storage unit and space here, the Manager Eliza exceeded my expectations, even came back to help me with the gate code after store hours. Although prices are average, the facility is clean, and so are the grounds. Overall a nice place to store your stuff if needed.

Thank you Vincent for setting me up with metro. Very nice customer service, professional, had a few good laughs. Not really sure how people are rating this place low with service if you probably only going to see an employee once for sign up. lol it's just a storage place.
