Student storage reviews

What Students and Parents are Saying about Student Storage

Review from - Robert Meaux

"I have two children at Pitt and I have been storing at STORExpress Southside for close to 4 years now. Not only are the facilities well maintained but the service is outstanding. Due to Covid, we had to move our kids out of the dorms on short notice. I arrived at the Southside facility 10 minutes after closing and not only were they available to register me but they were pleasant and understanding. I never forget great service and I would never use anyone else."

Review from - Eric Johnson

"The staff was very friendly and helpful. We needed a storage unit for a short time to store my son's things until his new apartment was ready. The location was very convenient and the facilities were nice. I would recommend Storexpress to anyone needing a storage unit."

Review from - Vintage Tosh

"Amazing, over the top customer service! Since day 1, they have gone above and beyond to accommodate my cross country moving and storage needs. I would recommend using STORExpress. Free use of moving trucks, moving supplies, online payments. Great for students, and professionals, they have all types of benefits to using their facility!! Highly recommended!"

Review from - Marcia O’Hara

"We had a uniquely stress-free experience! We had a very short window to find a storage unit, and all the logistical issues that come with quick move outs, short term storage needs, and multiple quick move-ins for both of our Pitt students. The managers went above and beyond to help us and accommodate exactly what was needed to make these moves bearable. They have the knowledge and patience to guide students and parents through these joyous hurdles of college transitions. Thank you for your expertise, and we gladly recommend STORExpress for anyone needing storage with true customer service! Thank you!"

Review from - Joan Wadsworth

"Over almost two years while I had a storage unit for my daughter’s college stuff I found the entire staff at store express to be extremely friendly and helpful. I would definitely give them 5 stars!! Thank you!!"

Review from - Darlene Desroches

"Great experience. I booked the storage site via phone for my niece's college stuff (home is 9 hours away). I found out that I picked the wrong size, but they made adjustments for us to get the correct size needed."

Review from - Joy Hu

"As an international college student, storage place is very important when it comes to a long summer break, and I heard STORExpress is a very safe, nice and affordable storage place from my friend, so me and my friends chose this storage place. The staff there are really helpful, they will try to help you to figure out a plan (like the size of the storage room) to fit your condition. Rooms are very safe and there's lots of choices of room sizes. Overall, the price is affordable for college students and it has been a very satisfying storage experience! Recommend this place!"

Review from - Elliot Cohen

"The facilities and the people here are great. We have used them for both of my kids that were in college in Pittsburgh. We live 7 hours away and they were so accommodating every time we needed something. Outstanding."
