Thank you property manager Jennifer for being so amazing to my late mother who trusted her belongings at your facility for nearly five years. With my mother’s recent passing, Jennifer was compassionate, immediate, and super helpful in guiding me from out of state in coming to access our unit. She’s the best, and her team and her facility are bar-none above the rest!

So far, so good. Signed up today under a lease promo and Jen(nifer) was knowledgeable, helpful, and easy to work with. In other words, she was professional. She helped navigate to our new rental spot and even offered a local mover's business card for our next move. Too bad that mover has closed shop! Maybe that's why she said it was "cheap." Still hoping for a smooth storage experience at this chain's facility.

Metro Self Storage has been my saving grace these past few months. After a quick downsize, I kept having to find storage units as part of the moving process and I continue to return to Metro. Not only is it immaculate (regularly cleaned as I have seen the cleaning crew several times), it has fantastic indoor loading docks. Not only do my belongings feel safe but I feel safe being at the space by myself, which is the first I have felt with any storage unit building in the past. Jennifer, the property manager, is wonderful! She goes above and beyond the call of duty. She is wicked fast with any paperwork and is in the office or on the property when you need her. Most other storage unit managers are MIA but Jen is there when you need help! Metro Self Storage is the perfect spot for storage needs. There is a reason continue to use them!

Mark and Jennifer at metro storage have been so incredibly helpful. They were both friendly and called me back promptly. They were super accommodating and Mark went the extra mile to help with some of the locks that were needed for the storage unit. The space is clean and easy to navigate.

Was looking for a new storage place and stopped by this facility. Mark greeted us and explained everything we needed to know. He was very professional, friendly, and customer focused.

Your facilities are great and the location is very convenient, but the reason we are doing business is because of your manager, Mark. Your original quote was uncompetitive with your surrounding competition. Mark followed up over the course of two days and came back with an acceptable package. He was professional and conscientious in getting the job done. He's a terrific asset for Metro!

Self Storage Units in Northbrook, IL, on 2121 Shermer Rd

A suburb of Chicago, the Village of Northbrook, IL, is located in the northeastern corner of Cook County. Home to many notable celebrities and athletes, the local high school, Glenbrook North High School, has been shown in famous films such as Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and The Breakfast Club. When not touting idyllic suburban life onto the big screen, Northbrook is a great place to play a little golf on the weekends and or have a day of picnicking and games with the kids. However, the equipment for all these activities might be taking up more room than you have around your home. Luckily, at Metro Self Storage in Northbrook, our friendly staff can help you find the room you need for the items you want to store. Located on Shermer Road next door to Bianco Glass and Glass Artistry, our state-of-the-art facility serves residents in surrounding neighborhoods, including Anetsberger’s Subdivision, Techny, Glenview, Northfield, Glencoe, Winnetka, Wheeling, Deerfield, Willow Cove, and Willow Woods. We are just up the street from the aforementioned Glenbrook High School with access to our facility on Jenke Drive.
