These people are so easy to do business with! The owners and the lady in the office (Sharon), are so nice and pleasant. The facility is well lit and I love that, I feel safe when I am by myself going into my unit. I will never have a storage unit anywhere but here! If I could rate Gardendale Self Storage any higher than a five star rating, I would. Best customer service around!

Professional, great customer service, very clean facility in a great location. We stored for over a year without any problems. The owners were always there when came by to pay our rent planting flowers, cutting grass, changing lights or filling up the complimentary ice cold water they keep in the office for their customers. You can tell they take pride in their business. Sharon that works in the office goes above and beyond to make sure everything goes smoothly for your move in or move out. Her dedication to details shows. She is a great asset to Gardendale Self Storage, never met a nicer person. Will definitely store with them again!!

Very good experience. We had 4 units (two exterior and two climate-controlled) for over a year. The facility was clean, well-kept, safe, and expertly managed.

We used Gardendale Self Storage while building our house. The temperature in all of our climate control units was perfect year-round. I sold multiple pieces of furniture, that I wouldn't need in the new house, to people from all over who always commented that it was the nicest storage facility they had been in. Amazing customer service, easy access, and safety all make Gardendale Self Storage the business to choose.

I needed a unit for a short period of time before we moved into our house. The owners and the young lady in the office were so helpful, helping in every way possible. The entire facility is spotless clean and they took excellent customer service to a new level. I know that this will be the only storage business that I will use. Thank you for helping me and giving great customer service.

I used their facility for almost 2 years. Moving from another state I reserved the space over the phone and Sharon was super helpful and made the process really easy. The facility is very clean! The grounds are well kept and the storage space itself was like new. I highly recommend this facility if you're looking for a clean well kept and friendly staff place for your storage needs.

I've had a storage unit here now for 5 yrs. I have a climate control unit. The people are very nice and went out of their way to help me. I had left my keys one time and they came through for me and cut my lock so that I didn't have to make an hour drive back to get my keys. Just had to go buy a new lock. Thank you isn't enough!!

The most accommodating and professional storage facility Ive ever had the pleasure of working with. Im a retired special operations guy that has used storage facilities across the US during eight deployments overseas and dealt with storage facilities for my entire adult life and I have to be honest when I say that Gardendale Self Storage has treated me better than any other place that Ive ever interacted with. Very rarely have I ever used a family owned business that actually cares about every interaction and still comes off as professional. To me, this storage is the shining example of why people should seek out family owned and ran businesses. They were patient with me every time I needed my lock cut, made themselves available anytime I needed help and were always pleasant with me, even when I made a mistake with a payment or forgetting my code. I can count the amount of reviews Ive written on one hand so I dont go through the process of writing a review unless a business truly resonates with me. The front desk lady is awesome!! Thank you so much for everything!

Great place! Very clean! Units are made so that no water can get in. Easy to access and wide aisles to allow easy unloading and loading.

Can't say enough about the owners! I've known them for 50 years and grew up with their daughters! When my husband's mother passed away a year ago, we needed storage for some furniture and we were living 1000 miles away in New York! Sharon helped us secure a unit and coordinated with our movers to move the items safely. She is incredibly responsive, professional and friendly! Justin was also a huge help! The facility is well-kept and clean. You won't be disappointed!

Excellent facility. Buildings are nice and clean. We stored our possessions for over a year while building a home and when we returned to retrieve them, all of our belongings were just like we left them. Will definitely use again.

I have nothing but great things to say about the facility or the people! I rented a climate controlled room, and the entire place was always very clean and comfortable. I never had a single problem with my room, my belongings, or the staff. In fact, they even went out of their way to help me when I had a short notice/short duration need for additional storage space. I absolutely recommend them to everyone needing storage space!

I totally appreciate the brief opportunity i had to use the storage facility and will definitely have them as my first choice should i need a storage unit at anytime in the future. Thank you very much for making my use of your storage unit a pleasant one.

Love Gardendale Self Storage, everyone is so professional and nice. I had 2 climate-controlled units, stored there for a few years. It is well lit on the inside and outside, and the facility is very clean, also inside and out. I would recommend this facility to anyone! And if I ever need to rent again, I will rent with them.

My family recently rented a climate controlled unit from GSS. The unit looked brand new, was always clean, and safe. Sharon and the people there could not be more helpful and kind. I really have no complaints or concerns. I would not hesitate to store there again if needed.

Gardendale Self Storage is the cleanest, nicest self storage we have ever used. The staff is super friendly and the building was so clean. It was secured and I never worried about my belongings. We had everything we own in that unit and it was never bothered. They are amazing.

I've had a storage building here for 23 months at $85.00 monthly and have been late twice and paid late fees which is understandable,but, account was opened by relative in his name and I paid all payments with cards either my name or MAMA'S name on card because we have lived together for 15 years. Trying to get my name on the document instead of relative and nothing but a hassle!!!! Got in financial mess for around 3 months and lady who runs place, Sharon is rude, crude, always with a bad attitude, even before I got behind. I'd call to make a payment and being sarcastic and smart a_ _, She'd say what card are you going to use today? REALLY SHOULDN'T MATTER WHAT CARD I PAY WITH AS LONG AS $85.00 clears!!!!!!! KNOWS I HAVE SEIZURES AND VERY HARD TO FIND RIDE. WALK ALOT. RECEIVED HATEFUL LETTER OTHER DAY SO I CALLED HER AND TOLD HER I WAS WALKING DOWN THERE AND WOULD GET THERE ASAP. 90 DEGREES OUT W/ HEAT INDEX ALMOST 100!!!!! Got there almost passing out stage. Signed paper work and walking again. Had a heat stroke on my way home. Sat down under the GARDENDALE FUNERAL HOME sign, almost couldn't see, very strange feeling, stood up and fell backwards twice. I still feel bad. She also knows I have sist in both knees. Miserable walk!!!!! Threatening to auction off our precious belongings/ MAMA'S GRAND MOTHER'S furniture and all kinds of things. Even put it in the paper to have auction and I stressed and stressed and had seizures galore and finally a friend paid her to keep unit and I paid friend back on my next payday but really didn't have it to give so done more juggling and next month, COME HELL OR HIGH WATER, I'M DONE WITH THAT UNGRATEFUL THING THAT RUNS GARDENDALE SELF STORAGE/ Sharon Kimbrell Was being nice giving 1* Deserves minus 10 stars.

Terrible customer service, poor management skills and choices. Would rather keep and scrounge a few measly dollars rather than keep a long term customer. I'll store shit in a dark alley before I use this company.
