Customer Reviews 100
Check in process was very simple, storage unit was clean and even had rodent repellant in the corners.
Move in easy, wish the ability to park a car wasnât such a step atep, but all good
The place and location of this facility is very nice. Easy in and out. Staff was helpful. Butâ¦$35 in extra fees is poor. But to be honest, ALL facilities charge extra fees. The admin fee for here ($22) is just another way for them to collect more $$. Everything you purchase in life has paperwork. You should not be charged for them to do their job.
Start up paperwork wasn't completed correctly at initial visit had to redo it
It was fast and simple, I used this service for collage storage.
Itâs a box to put things in at an ok rate. Make sure to tell them you booked on sparefoot or they wonât give you the free month. Itâs a little out of town but easy enough to get to and there is 24/7 access.
There was a different man working there this time and he was also easy to work with. They have bolt cutters available for those of us that lose our keys and new locks are available for purchase in the office.
Staff was nice. Unit was clean.
They walked me through the move-in process and explained everything well! Great customer service
20min from Ithaca College campus but the fair AAA price and pro-rated last month makes it a very fair price for students and worth the trip. In addition you get Friendly staff and a clean well cared for facility 5x5 with probably an 8ft ceiling was too much room for one student with a lot of stuff from her dorm room.
Once I walked in the door, a staff memeber started talking with me. Even as the line formed behind me and my slow reading of the paperwork, he kept a smile on his face and made sure to entertain everyone in the room. Once I was ready to move in, a different staff member showed me my unit and I was able to move in and out quickly. Great customer service!
The process was straightforward and went very smoothly. It was fun to joke around with the people working while we filled out paperwork.
It was extremely easy to book a spot, and the people were very accommodating, even when I needed to change unit size. On move in day, it was very easy to check in. The unit was clean and very easy to drive your car right up to.
Reserving was simple, Secure self storage is a nice, very secure , and clean facility. However, one of the employees forgot to take the padlock off our unit and when we showed up after hours to move in, no one could help us. They resolved it at 8am the next morning and were very apologetic. I think it was a fluke more than it was indicative of their usual CS. Otherwise, great CX and facility.
Super friendly and accommodating, locker is clean and easy to get to. Would recommend
Excellent self service process by smoothly
Very friendly and accommodating staff. Very adequate space and options.
I went to rent a unit because of the competitive prices and the the AAA discount. In addition to a $22 administrative fee, they charged $10 for insurance (without asking me if I had my own insurance first) and they do not provide a lock, so that's another $10-20 for you to buy one of their locks. Also the first time I tried going the office was locked despite being during their listed hours. Will not be using again.
No climate controlled units. Great prices
easy to find, lots of room to maneuver truck
Thank you Secure Self Storage for your responsive team who helped provide me with a storage unit within one day notice due to quick move out.
The facility was clean and the staff was overall very helpful. I was only surprised to find out the unit was not climate controlled. Other than that, amazing spot and would gladly recommend it to a friend or use it again in the future.
My Cornell student daughter did not seem to have any problem. With coronavirus and the closing of school, they were very helpful and even called me when my daughter forgot to put a lock on the unit and put one of theirs on until one of her friends could go up there and put their lock on so good for parents of college-age students. They looked out for both of us
Very flexible workers, very kind and easy. The smallest storage unit fits so much. I would recommend these guys.
super nice people!! very helpful!! spacious units!! :)
Easy to set up and helpful staff
like this location close to school I can come anytime day or night with their 24 hour access I have classes late so this is very convenient. some driveways are asphalt & gravel . surveillance cameras everywhere too.
Management there is very friendly was able to get into my new unit quickly. Having the 24 hr. access is hopeful because I work late hours.
I had to sweep My own unit and she took forever to get me going! Awful service. Their website has been down since day one, you are unable to pay online and the facility is hardly secure with the gate being left open all night intermittently because itâs âbrokenâ according to the management. There are so many other storage companies in Ithaca - AVOID THIS ONE.
I recently went out to this facility to sign the paperwork for my 10x20 unit and it took forever to get my lock on the unit. Apparently the computer system is from the early 90s and their internet bandwidth is microscopic. It took 45 minutes for the attendant to fill out the forms in the system and get them printed. God forbid they have more than one customer show up at a time. They would likely be forced to leave and come back another time. On the plus side the unit looks fine and the attendant was kind enough.
Showed up with my reservation and a truck full of stuff for storage only to be told that they had rented out all units. They were very rude and I was forced to find another place at the last second.
My stuff is still in the storage unit but so far so good. It was very easy to move-in and the unit is great.
Friendly staff. Good service. Easy peazy. Iâve used this facility twice. I will continue to use it. No reason to look further.
I had to book a storage unit in one day when another storage situation fell through and secure self storage helped me get a space booked last minute.
Service was fast and checkin a breeze staff was very helpful and pleasant
Nice facility. Friendly staff and fairly priced. Move in was very easy.
Good clean facility with helpful customer staffing. The storage unit was as described and you can't beat the price.
Gentlemen took care of everything I needed to move my things in. I had made an online reservation but for some reason I was not in the system. He took care of me right away and I was in and out, loading my things within 10 min. 10x10 unit features clean, dry anx a few pallets were already in my unit. I like the distance from everywhere and it feels less likely to be damaged or stolen. Great friendly service and the price can't be beat in Ithaca. No contract to stay either. Definitely highly recommend!!
Good and smooth check in process
They have spacious storage garages. They are secure, easily accessible, and conveniently located. It took a few trips, but we were able to store all of our furniture in the garage.
Excellent customer service. Rebecca was helpful and pleasant with a nice seance of humor she needs a raise.
This facility ended up working out great for what I needed and could afford and I definitely feel comfortable with my car being here temporarily, even with it being outdoors. There are cameras all throughout the facility and you need a code to get in that you set up with staff during the write up of your contract. The owners help respect the privacy of the people renting space--an insurance company called regarding an appraisal that needed to be done for a prior collision and they would not even let them know the car was there without myself or a contact listed on the contract giving them approval.
The unit was swept clean, and is well lighted and easy to get into after hours.
Will use again. Manager was friendly and helpful. Unit was easily accessible, clean and roomy. Accepted AAA discount
Everything went smoothly, on time. Space was as promised. Happy customer
Better to store the dormitory mess then to bring it all home! The price is right and very convenient to Cornell U
Price is right, facility is clean and Mr. Pritchard is a lovely man. BUT, if you present your home owner's insurance policy at check in then you need not pay for their insurance of about $9.00 per month. Once you have the key, you have 24 hour access and it's super convenient to Cornell.
Best choice for storage in the Ithaca area as compared with other facilities I've tried. Really clean and secure. In addition, there are pallets in each unit for customer use, which was great. The front desk staff was a little gruff, but overall I would recommend to a friend.
First timer and staff made this a breeze! Easy reservation and check in! Friendly staff and clean facilities
I was not able to move in on the day I was scheduled because their computer system was not working, so I had to return the next day. Then I was charged a $22 administration fee, which I had not seen listed anywhere else.
It was easy to get set up and moving in was straightforward. 24 hr access is very convenient.
I really love that they require a $9 additional insurance costs. It covers up to $2,000 of damage due to weather, theft, fire, etc. The price is reasonable at $84 per month (insurance included). Bring your own lock if you have or buy there for ~$10. The staff is helpful and the place is clean and secure. Be sure to call ahead to ensure that someone is in the office. I would recommend for other students given its location to Cornell.
The storage area is convenient and affordable for the colleges nearby that require summer storage. The prices are manageable for a student to cover and offers a good amount of space in the unit for the size that is provided.
facility is easy to use, customer service is slightly slow but online makes it effective
Move in process was smooth, price was affordable, the unit was clean and easy to use
Owner/manager is a little snarky, but everything went fine.
I was in a rush to move out and realized I didn't have enough room in my car for everything. Panicked, I called my mom and she set up a unit for me at secure self storage Ithaca. It really saved me, and it's really convenient that it's open 24/7 and you can access it at your leisure. Would recommend.
No complaints at all.......................................................................................................................................................
Nice, clean, price contentious, units size able
Quickly was able to reserve a unit. Lots of email reminders. Easy to move in.
The place is located in a good part of city. The pricing are not bad and it is open 7 days a week so you can move in each day you want
The staff is very friendly and helpful.
It's a great facility with a fence around the compound. The only thing is that the staff at the front desk were taking quite a bit of time In order to finalize everything to set me up on the move in day. Other than that, I'm very happy with it!
Quick, clean, efficient and safe, extremely friendly and helpful.
Pretty speedy service, reserved a unit, although I'm not sure what exactly I reserved as it didn't seem like they checked my reservation when I arrived at the location.
The guy who checked us is was rude and impatient. They don't mention the mandatory $9/month insurance and the staff charged my card over $200 without my consent. I thought he was charging only for the admin fee and the first month but he did not have good communications skills.
It was a little difficult finding the facility itself as I am not originally from the Ithaca area, but besides that everything worked out smoothly. I walked into the main office and signed the necessary forms, got the key, and packed my things into the storage unit. It is also a bonus that I can come into the storage unit lot literally anytime with my gate access code. I couldn't have imagined this situation run any smoother.
Moving in and booking was easy.
This facility was clean and secure, but I didn't like paying a $20 administrative fee. If I wanted a bill or even an email reminder each month, they charge an additional $1. They also charged us $9 per month insurance. If these charges were really necessary, I would rather they were built into the flat monthly fee and it would have been good to know about the extra charges ahead of time.
Excellent service from the staff. Clean unit and facility. Good value for the money.
They have a gated fence around the compound making it safe and secure. The owners were great and made moving in quick and easy
Great experience, excellent service.
Friendly and quick. Reserved online and paid by credit card over phone. Well kept facility.
Overall good experience with paperwork and guidance to storage unit.
I needed a storage space for one month while I was traveling and changing homes, and self-storage was incredibly convenient. And the service was so friendly.
Good communication. Helpful service.
I found this storage facility online, and when I called to make a reservation they were very helpful and friendly. I was able to move it quickly and they managers were nice. There was a lot of paperwork, but it went smooth and fast. The managers even helped me get a pallet into my locker to prevent water damage. (Never seen this before)
Moving into Ithaca Secure Self Storage was simple and easy. The customer representative was friendly and efficient. I would recommend the company for you storage needs.
I have a storage unit at Ithaca Self Storage and I am quite impressed with the professional staff, the security (cameras/fence), and the clean appearance of the facility. I would recommend this storage facility without reservation.
I compared many storage businesses in the area before settling on Ithaca Self Storage, which was referred by a friend -- with good reason, it turns out. First, unlike many of the local operations, they have a good security system with cameras, good fences, and an electric gate. They have convenient access, however, for customers, 24 hours a day, with an electric gate code. Second, I had my stuff there for two years. When I pulled it out, it was in excellent shape. I remember asking one of the managers about drainage, etc., and he said they had put a lot of attention into design when they set up the complex. With the amount of precipitation we get here, these details are important. Third, every time I dealt with the management, I found them to be extremely professional, rigorous, and considerate. They go buy the book when it comes to procedure, legality, and security, which makes you feel really good about keeping your stuff there, but at the same time they are friendly and human. For example, once I left town forgetting to lock my lock; they noticed, contacted me, gave me several options for dealing with the situation, and took care of it promptly, all in a very friendly way. Very impressive. Overall, a very professional business with pride in what they do. Very good value for money. Highly recommended.
Very curious & knowledgeable about the facility.
Very secure storage facility. Units are very clean. Staff was very helpful. They had free coffee. Will definately use them every year.
This is by far the best stoareg place in Ithaca. The price is a bit higher than the others, but they are super secure. The paperwork though is very time consuming. The staff do have it down pat, and get through it quickly...but the lease alone is like buying a house!
Renting from secure storage was a nightmare. I arrive to put my stuff in my storage unit, no one is there - for an hour and a half. Theres a note on the door saying they went "to the bank." The two workers come back with sandwiches in their hands, and I walk towards the door as they are entering and they close the door in my face, and put up a "be back in 20 minutes sign." Extremely unprofessional and I was blown away by the lack of customer service. When I was finally able to do the paperwork, I asked "why were you closed for an hour and a half, and then for another 20 minutes?" "We have to take our regulated lunch break." "The note on the door said you were going to the bank." No answer. There is also no regulation saying that BOTH employees have to take their lunch break at the same time. Never again.
Move-in wasn't too smooth as on-line registration seemed to have fallen into the void. Staff was able to provide backup unit â eventually. First one turned out to be scheduled for maintenance. Had to remove belongings and start again. Facility seems well maintained overall. Staff was helpful; however, would suggest on move-in, move-out weekends from local colleges, staff keep someone on site during working hours. Noticed a kid arriving in a taxi only to find staff were "at lunch." That's a real hassle!
Paperwork was done with a pleasant demeanor. Appreciated the through explanation of entry and policies. Would like to have know ahead of time the required insurance charge.
This is an excellent secured place to store anything. The staff was very professional and quite personal in the entire process of renting a storage unit.
The process before accessing storage is time consuming.
