We didn't go with this storage unit today due to no parking and we have babies but we would have done it because natnael was so sweet and kind. He truly helped us with everything and we recommend the facility's because of the staff

Excellent pricing supported by an even more excellent customer service experience - Natnael and Yonas were great! Move-in was very easy, and Natnael was extremely helpful and clear in his communications. Was dreading having to deal with storing my stuff, but the great customer service made the experience easy and even pleasant!

The staff are very professional and friendly, and they work hard to provide excellent customer service! Yonas is one of the most decent folks I've ever met, and Neal is also very kind and helpful. John has been there for a long time, so he knows the place inside and out and can help where ever it's needed. They keep the old building clean, and moving/access is easy because there's a huge industrial elevator in addition to stairs. The hours are decent too. I've always felt my storage is actually safer in this old, simple building than at some fancy-shmancy facility that costs so much more.

The employees at Storage Mart were extremely kind and helpful. The prices are the best in town-by a LOT. What more could you ask for? I love it. I was in need of storage space very suddenly. The assistant manager found my a safe unit very quickly and helped me with my things. When comparing prices to other storage facilities, these guys were the cheapest and the kindest. I have already recommended this place to several friends. Originally I was only renting for the summer, but with a service like this, Ill be using my unit all year round. Thank you Storage Mart!

When I arrived at StorageMart on San Pablo Ave. in Oakland, I was very stressed out. My waterheater had given in and flooded my (and my neighbor) apartment and I was in a rush to find a decent storage place, a mover and a plumber. Yonas was alone and very busy, trying to satisfy the needs of all the costumers, some of which were quite difficult. While waiting my turn, I got to appreciate very much Yonas professional behavior, particularly his respectful, calm and helpful demeanor towards everybody, in spite of the fact that he had no help and had to deal with a few frustrating costumers (including me!). When my turn came, he was very helpful and patient, and was able to find for me the best deal available. I really appreciated his help and kindness throughout our interaction. Thank you Yonas.

The service at this location is great! The associate I interacted with was very helpful in guiding me to my unit and even helping me find one that was more appropriate for the space I needed. The storage unit is well-kept and I had no issues entering or making use of the elevators and carts. Overall a good value.

Just started using the unit, but I have been very satisfied with the customer service at the place! Both over the ohone and in person. The employee showed me to the unit, swept it for me, and made sure everything was good. Units are eaily accessible, and not much traffick on the elevator. Thank you!

Had a really easy time getting a storage unit here. Neil was really helpful in getting us set up, and allowing us to switch to a bigger unit when we saw the one we originally rented might be a bit too small. Neil was super friendly and professional and made the registration and paper work process pain free. John was so helpful in lending us dollies, even helping us move some of our stuff as well. Hes got a great sense of humor. He was also really patient in helping me back out our big uhaul from inside the facility!

If you are looking for a black owned, storage option with a little bit extra, you found it! The owner is really nice and super flexible. I explained to him what I needed and he was able to offer exactly what I wanted at a very reasonable price. He was also kind enough to help me load boxes into my unit as I came near closing time and had quite abit more than I could carry solo. Never thought I would say this, but an amazing storage experience overall!

I want to start by saying I never thought I would be writing a review for a storage facility. However, this place and the manager Jason saved my move to CO. I was storing most of my things for 6m and had a plan to move to CO on Friday morning. I arrived Thursday night tight on both space and time, and underestimated the difficulty of moving all my things into storage. Jason was able to upgrade me to a bigger unit, and stayed over an hour past the closing time to ensure I was completely moved in. He was incredibly accommodating and understanding, and storage mart will forever have my loyalty for Bay Area related storage needs. This place is like the In-N-Out of storage facilities (without the line). Cheap, convenient, and high quality product. Cant recommend enough!

The workers there were so helpful from the lady at the front desk to the guy showing us how to use the elevator. The guy who helped the 3 ladies from NC empty Locker # 3058 was absolutely as polite and helpful as possible. He had to cut the lock off for us and was so happy to help us any way possible. He even stayed with us and helped to load the truck. He had such a kind manner. Thank you thank you thank you.

My husband and I was looking for a storage and passed by Storage Mart. We were greeted as soon as we walked in by the Manager Siroc and another employee John. Siroc showed us several storage units which were great the only down fall was that the hallways were to narrow and not enough space for our large items. We would definitely recommend this location due to great customer service and Cleanliness of the facility.

I've rented a large locker from Storage Mart for the past 6 months and was very satisfied with the unit, but offended by the rudeness of the woman assiting the manager. She gave me no help at all in figuring out how the industrial elevator worked - and when it got stuck between floors, I had to call S.M. Headqurters in MIssouri to get help. Then today I met the new assistant Bonita and she was absolutely wonderful - courteous, professional, empathic and solution-oriented. So the 5 stars go to her!

So, my apartment needed a place to keep our stuff for over the summer. I was super impressed by StorageMart, not only for their cleanliness, but for their good service. The general manager was super personable, answering all of our questions, and gave us plenty of tips. Would definitely use their service again!

Have not seen any one shower in the bathroom because they don't have it opened for the public. It's a great place for people to store there belongings primarily because the staff is and are beautiful people who will help you with whatever they can as far as storage goes. My belongings have been sad, I know nothing about it any units being broken into and the community looks out for each other. StorageMart on 27th between 28th is a great place.

It was quick and professional. The worker who helped me wasn't worried about selling me the biggest, most expensive storage unit. Instead, he was asking me about what I was storing and if I was a student (which I am), so he could recommend the best one for me. Only bad thing I can say is that its in a rough part of town, but as long as you are there in the day, its not too bad.

This place is evidently under new management. The staff is much more friendly and the entire facility has had a makeover. I have had a unit here for three years but always was leary of rodents getting into my belongings until lately. I hope they continue to keep up with the improvements.

First time they showed me around there was a dead rat on the floor. So the traps they have all over don't really keep them in. Out of the three times I've been there, there was nothing else to witness. The set up was easy and quick, I was done locking everything in within two hours. Despite them not having enough carts and of course parking is, parking in Bay area. Every time I came to my storage unit, there was a lady hanging out, lounging around relaxing. Had to wait for her to put her stuff away to do my thing there. It was a little annoying.

The staff here is incredible friendly and helpful (for the most part). The units are cheap, but be prepared for them to raise the prices on you more than once. Parking is a nightmare, especially on the weekends because the hours are so short that anyone who keeps normal office hours can only go on Saturday or Sunday. The biggest problem, though, is the rodent infestation. I can't really estimate how much of my stuff has been ruined by being chewed through by mice or just covered by their urine or feces, and the contract states that StorageMart isn't liable for any damages caused by rodents. I don't even know if the stuff in the back of my unit has been affected yet because I have to sort through everything going from front to back to triage what I can save and the space to load and unload your unit is so small. All in all, it's the cheapest for a reason. If you rent here, store your belongings in plastic tubs, not cardboard boxes, and *maybe* you'll be safe.

This place needs to be condemned. It's filthy you can smell the rodent urine through the building. They don't even bother to remove the rat droppings from the carpeted hallways. The place is infested with mice and rats. I took lots of pictures to send to their corporate office. Some of the droppings I saw were huge almost cat size. That's one rat I don't want to run across. The rats get nice and fat eating all the furniture and clothing they can get to. It's a disgusting dump.

All of my items stored here were completely covered in rat feces/urine after 2 months. A few of my new pieces of furniture now have significant bite marks from rats. I had no food in my storage unit. I've tried to contact the manager multiple times with no response in person or by phone. The employees are nice but I would not recommend this place to anyone because of the rat issue. Even though the units are pretty cheap it's not worth it with the amount of cleaning I had to do after moving my stuff out. I'm surprised no other reviewers have mentioned any of this!

Do not rent at this storage place, I wasnt aware of all the traffic that runs in and out, some of the people sleep inside of there storage unit doing business hours. Homeless people take wash ups and sleep inside of the bathroom.. every time I came to the storage place its always trash and clothing directly in front of the drive away. This place has rats very very bad.. I just recently moved all of my things out 5/24/2018 and Im so pissed a lot of my things got destroyed. The rats got into all of my things, it was rat poop on everything. Holes in all of my bags.. Them damn rats ate all of my stuff. Management said my insurance dont cover rats. But I was never told about the bad rat issues.. I wish I could post pictures up so yall could see all of what Im saying is true. Now my new house has rats in it.. PLEASE DO NOT RENT HERE.. This place is nasty and management dont care.. they just want your money but they want tell you about there bad ass rat problem my storage unit was $300 month.. Not cheap at all.. and customer shouldnt have to deal with this at all. Once again DO NOT RENT AT THIS LOCATION 2743 San Pablo Ave Oakland, Ca 94612

reserved a spot online that ended up being a locker only accessible by ladder, not handicap accessible and highly dangerous. obviously had to change to a bigger space at a higher price as my stuff was already loaded up and right there, and was told the online advertised "first month's free' still meant a $25 admin fee and prorated for the two days before the first of the month because I had the misfortune to need a spot not starting on the first of the month, so in all they charged my $60 for a 'free' space that will be $90 regularly, what a joke. total thieves! also all the fine print (7 pages) means they dgaf if the storage space is covered with rodent pee and feces, like they don't even sweep or clean in between clients. terrible to see a great old building in such a state. it needs to be condemned and put the criminals out of business.

Really disappointed. I called to reserve and confirm a 1st floor walk-in unit. I had the agent double and triple check my reservation but on moving day I got to the storage area and it was the incorrect top cubby ladder accessible unit. I hired a Lugg XL and I paid an extra $2x40minutes to sort out their mistake. And I ended up paying $100/month more for a new unit. Thanks Storagemart
