I usually don’t write reviews but this woman named Ashley gave the best customer service and care I would definitely be recommending everyone I know for this storage unit y’all are the best thank you!
Ashley was so helpful and knowledgeable with helping my mom rent a storage unit even though my mom is somewhat difficult to deal with... We both appreciate her expertise
If I could give more stars than five I most certainly would, I've moved a lot in my life and had quite a few storage sheds in Topeka but this by far is my favorite, it's secure, clean, the girls in the office know what they're doing, and they are so helpful if I need help with anything.. Ashley is super helpful and understanding and she's 100% amazing at communicating and has just been so helpful to me and my family. If you're not sure about where to go or where to store your stuff, I would highly recommend that you go to istorage on California, and ask for Ashley!!
Went in to discuss my unit with employee (Ashley). She was very helpful and an easy person to talk to. She resolved the issue and we ended the conversation. Customer service skills were on par.
***Updated Below***I'm only on month two but so far my experience with istorage & the management, Tony & Crystal has been nothing short of amazing. To start, when I opened my unit for the 1st time, it was immaculate and surprisingly very well insulated and I don't have a climate controlled unit. So, right off the bat I was happy. Also, I am extremely impressed with how vigilant Tony has been. He drives throughout the property regularly just keeping watch. I know this because I have moved an entire home into my unit and I have spent quite a bit of time there reorganizing just to make sure everything would fit. He drives by to check & make sure I'm okay & if I'm in a vehicle he doesn't recognize he'll drive right up to make sure it's me 😂 It doesn't bother me one bit! I just always hope the next time he drives by he'll get out and offer to help! Lol. Crystal is friendly and actually helped me out by extending my payment date out a couple days bcz I couldn't remember the date since it was actually my 1st month of actually having a payment due & I had reserved & purchased online so it was a bit confusing. Great storage place. I hate the idea of paying to store "things" but if you gotta do it, do it with these guys! They'll take care of your stuff. ****Update***Not sure how to add another review but I'm coming up on almost a year renting here no issues with management. Just unhappy with the company raising the cost of my unit with no notice prior and this happened months ago to no fault of the local management.
Always very helpful and courteous towards me and the security is nice
I had an issue and their customer service contacted me and rectified the situation. Hard to find companies that listen to their consumers and they did
The service is totally amazing from the new Lady Ashley
Great friendly staff
Staff answered all question
Good place, safe, secure,and awsome staff
Clean office, great customer service, very convenient convenient. Would highly recommend!
I was so relieved When TONY show me how to operate the gate and explain to me the rotation so for my protection of my sentimental values he really does go above and beyond for the customer I hope he sticks around with the extra patrols and put my mind at ease if you have a storage unit and you pay your fees on time it should be self evident that you care about your belongings and this person shows compassion when dealing with others and their concerns thank you I storage for having TONY a part of your team
Tony is very considerate and always reminds me before I get late charges
The manager is very helpful.
my family stores here and Tony has excellent service... thank you so much will recommend
I had a great guest experience. The manager was professional, polite, and possessed high knowledge as the subject matter expert.
Tony is amazing ,he's always there for a friendly word and to answer any questions.....
Tony is very good and respectable I really appreciate his help
All around pleasant experience when dealing with Tony, he's always nice and friendly. Very helpful, sends me a text when rent is due so I won't incur a late fee. Thank you, Tony!! Highly appreciated!
Tony was very helpful and friendly. He's a very nice guy. I would recommend this storage facility to anyone looking.
Fast understanding Tony helps a lot with updates and payments.
Tony customer service is like the tiger. It's gggrrrrrrreat! Nah but seriously, he's always going above and beyond for us and we greatly appreciate it!
Excellent customer service, very helpful. Crystal answered all of my questions!
I have had nothing but a wonderful experience since I started renting. The manager has been nothing but exceptional and has taken care of me every step of the way.
Tony was wonderful! He has great customer service skills! Found me everything I needed for a reasonable price! Thanks so much!
I came from out of state to empty my daughters unit for her and my mom. I misunderstood the sign by the dumpster and put some trash in it The guy in the office was understanding and I appreciated that he was able to work with me Thanks so much!! If you had facilities in Tennessee near where I live I would definitely use you
Overall pretty nice. Easy access. I The office manager is always nice when I come in or call to make a payment. I will say for $100 a month tho we should be able to throw or trash away in their dumpsters. I’m sure with the rent increases they can afford a second dumpster. Otherwise I really don’t have any complaints. I’ve had pleasent experiences thus far and have actually recommended a few friends there!
Tony was very helpful when I needed it the most! He helped me secure a unit and lock quickly! Crystal introduced herself to me within the first few days of starting and offered to help me while I was on the property! These two employees have went above and beyond my expectations and I will definitely be back in the future if I ever need a storage unit again! Thanks again!!!
Very helpful and personable.
Since Anthony came he has got things taken care of That we much needed. Things are finally secure. He has gone out of his way to help me when he didn’t have to. He is wonderful!!!!!
Anthony has been a blessing to do business with. He truly cares about his clients. I highly recommend them for your storage rental needs.
Anthony at the 29th St units Topeka,Ks has cleaned out junk, fixed the security fence and got the security system turned back on. I told him we live on Social Security and explaned we have had 3 rent increases in the last 21/2 yrs and was going to need move to another company to have storage and be able to eat. Tony called his Mgr and she agreed the increases are pretty steep and that we can remain on the amount of the last increase. After talking with the Mgr he called me back and gave me the good news. We are in our 80's and it's a Blessing. Thankyou for having caring employees. Respectfully, Jon and Judy Hanna Unit 1602 Topeka,KS
Tony has been great help
Service and storage are really great! Tony and Crystal were able to answer all my questions and get me a storage unit without issue.
*UPDATE: The owners quickly resolved the issue at hand. It is obvious they honestly do care about their customers and their experience they have at this establishment,and for that i thank them. Worst storage facility I've ever been to. !! Unprofessional employees not willing to help if a problem arises,which in my case I lost my storage keys which resulted in a nightmare of having them call their locksmith to cut lock off lock.Locksmith left early and they never told me .I was told I had to wait another week before accessing my belongings! And wasting gas driving across town! They offered no solution..only saing 'what do u want me to do about it!?' ..What do I want u to do about it!? Cancel any future contract with employees at a facility that's a joke and a waste of time and money is what I want u to do about it.
The manager at istorage is very friendly and easy to work with in a distressing time in our lives. Thank You istorage.
Tony and Crystal are the ones who helped me when I came in 5 minutes till close to get my lock cut and did it for me with no irritation at all! Super helpful and professional at their work for the istorage!!
About ten months ago I put a post on the website giving iStorage only one star. Since Tony and his NEW team have been in place there have been SEVERAL upgrades. The Customer service is A+. Very friendly and helpful. I am now giving FIVE STARS. Can’t wait to see what’s coming up next!! Steven Lee. Very Satisfied Customer of the California Ave. location in Topeka, Ks.
Professional and attentive
The managers have excellent customer service and when we get in a pinch they worked with us. He doesn't just rush you off. He lets you have a conversation with him. They are encouraging and I'm glad they took over. Even from the beginning he helped us with another issue that we ran in to. I highly recommend this place.
Tony is very professional and helpful throughout rhe process. The units are clean and affordable.
The staff at iStorage has been super helpful and having multiple options for payment is very convenient! I would definitely recommend them to anyone.
Great customer service. Very friendly and helpful service. I would recommend istorage to my friends.
friendly people with an amazing experience, both Tony and Crystal (i think that was her name) were more then helpful, was easy, thoroughly explained, reassured of security with consistent double checks every day, really helped me feel at east being so far away from my things, the entire process was smooth with no hiccups or hidden fees or catches or any of the nonsense. straight and to the point with a great attitude to compliment the entire experience. 7 stars Tony
Excellent customer service
Tony is an awesome manager. He cares about the customers, and the units. He always lets us know when we need to pay, if something doesn’t work out with the bank! — This guy deserves a raise!
Full recommendation!! The On-site Manager Tony is very friendly. The property is clean and maintained. He will always get my recommendation and business.
Excellent customer service service.
Staff was very friendly, and I was easily able to get everything into the unit that I needed very quickly. Easy to access, and for a very good price.
Anthony is fantastic, helped me understand different sizes of units. His attitude was amazing and kind.
Fast and easy service. Good units for an affordable price
The person in front taking payment was nice!
The person that helped me did a excellent job friendly and very helpful
Tony answered all of my questions and showed me multiple unit sizes to determine my needs. Very nice and polite.
Definitely the best storage unit lot I been too. The manager is chill and lay back.
Great costumer service
Great service, Tony is polite and reminded me to setup autopay before I missed a payment. Clean and secure property. My stuff was how I left it.
Great place. Tony helped me out and is very flexible and understanding when it comes to paying my storage. Sometimes I'm running a little late and he works with me and I'm very grateful for that.
I've been a customer for years. I was looking to change where I stored my things until they hired the new Manager. This new Manager, Tony, has totally earned 10 stars with how he runs this property. I personally know 8 other customers who were also wanting to move and Tony has changed all of our minds. He is amazing and deserves recognition for rescuing this property. To any potential new customers.. just know you won't find a better place to do business in the area. I am totally confident that my things are safe and that's the most important thing when searching for storage units.
Awesome service! Really appreciate the help from Tony!
Tony is awesome. Took care of me!
Easy to access, great office personelle.
I am very happy since Tony took over managing this site...I was going to leave and rent somewhere else...until he showed up...Tony is fabulous and has turned this place around 100%....Tony is your hidden talent and should be promoted up to an Area Manager in the future...
Great location great service !!! Tony was very fast and courteous!
Tony is absolutely incredible!!! He has helped me with a few issues and he is always so helpful and pleasant. If you have any issues definitely reach out. Super helpful. Super kind. Great conversation. Awesome employee!! Hard to find those these days!! 👏👏👏
Awesome experience with this storage facility!!! Tony was a pleasure to work with. Got us a unit quickly and in a matter of minutes we were moving our belongings inside.
Friendly service. Not sure about the prices though. I Wont be able to beat the convenience as it's walking distance from my home. I hoped it to be a no brainer but again, they've found a way to make me doubt them. The back half of the lot is horrible...like it was bombed. I asked for a unit at the front half, they found a reason to charge me extra. Frustrating !!!
I'm giving this four stars based on the recent changes that have occurred since the new manager Tony came on site. He is so easy to work with and proactive in quickly getting the property improved. Before he got there, the property was in very rough shape. The concrete is still in need to serious repair, and once done, I believe the property will get consistently get five star ratings. It's been a remarkable turnaround!
Great service and new management... fast service
Manager was very helpful and made my decision to go with Istorage very easy and painless.. If you are looking for storage come check them out you be pleased as I was
This storage facility is very clean, has good security, and very helpful staff. I recommend it to anyone who is looking for safe clean storage.
Property has in proved, they finally got a manager (toney) that cares about the property and has made many improvements in a short time frame.
The new store manager is very helpful and trying hard to get the store in great working condition...we can see the difference!
My needs were met quickly and friendly with no up selling or hassle I am very pleased with my experience
Easy access and customer service is excellent
I've recently rented a small storage space, perfectly sized for my needs. It was clean upon arrival. The manager, Scott, called not a day after I completed my rental online to take me through the process of having a lock, where my storage unit is located on the property, the hours of operation, and just to make sure he could answer all my questions. Fantastic customer service! Beyond the secure units themselves, you have to have a personal code to get into the storage area, so I feel very secure knowing my things are at this iStorage.
Top notch manager. Well informed, friendly and welcoming. All went smoothly. Very willing to assist in anyway or on anything. Great place to do business with 😄
A great place for my contents
Very professional very helpful very clean facility working on concrete driving care more about the customers and what they need in themselves if I could give more stars I would
Fix the broken gates!
I needed a simple storage quick and easy and Aaron took care of it expeditiously.. He was respectful and got it done. Only thing i didnt like is that the 1 month free that is advertised and on the front when you pull in, is technically only for the rental of the vehicle parking spots you can rent for vehicles.. Not the actual storage units.. But other than that everything else went fine...
The staff is great to work with.
Can't say how nice Aaron was when I went in to ask for rates. The place was clean. I will rent from them, and tell all my friends.
Such friendly service with Aaron, he made it so easy to sign up and immediately getting right to storing my stuff.
Aaron was great and got us taken care of. He was very friendly and courteous
Took a friend here and Aaron couldn't have been more helpful!
Aaron was helpful and knowledgeable.
Christy and Aaron were both very helpful and knowledgeable. The units are secure and the security cameras helped to reinsure my property would be safe. Thank you.
Christy and Aaron Excellent place, clean place, friendly workers. Rent could b cheaper on the longer term renters

Aaron and Christy were both super helpful in getting me into my storage unit and getting everything setup.
Nice service best ever proper performance great attitude keep him here
They had some trouble with getting it so I could sign on the computer.
This is a good storage facility. It is NOT assessable 24 hours and I work odd hours. It could be more convenient, but reasonably priced.
Friendly, quick, efficient.
At the metro self storage located on California, I would recommend Christy or Kim to help get you and your belongings all set up! I am a single mom with 3 kids and keeping track of my bill dates is definitely not one of my best traits! With that being said I go in and both Christy and Kim are on it and always willing to help out with any questions or concerns I would have! They go above and beyond for me and my kids and our belongings! So anyway thanks ladies for making every experience fun and less stressful!!! - Lindsay kayden , Alexis and Sébastien!
Christy was very pleasant to deal with. She called to make sure I was aware that she would be out of the office and if I needed to be in by a certain date that I should go in to check in. She made sure the space was acceptable and clean and that I new how to find and get through the gate. Very pleased!
They have been an awsome storage place we have had our stuff hear for over two years and no problem

Great place!! And the people there are so friendly! I love that they have cameras up everywhere also. I would highly recommend them to anyone! While waiting on my husband to get there with the uhaul, the lady at the front desk gave my daughter some crayons and a coloring book to play with. Their units are very clean and you get your own lock! Love it! Such a great place!
They people as nice. They only thing wrong IA there are no lights in the units but u have 24 hr access
