This is a secure ,clean air conditioned place. I have no worries if someone will be able to break into my unit and not be seen on camera. It's totally secure!!! The staff is super helpful and courteous. Everyone should get storage there Teresa, is absolutely amazing,easy to talk to after just a couple minutes of talking to me she was able to figure out exactly what i needed - even when I was indecisive, and sceptical walking through the door. Leaving I was confident and cracking jokes. She needs a raise ANYONE WOULD BE FOOLISH TO NOT GO GET A UNIT AND CLEAN OUT YOUR HOUSE.

Shield Storage would have been an easy five out of five stars if not for the hours of operation. The staff is very knowledgeable, easy to talk to, and polite both in person and on the phone. I really wish that shield storage was open 24 hours a day, but I understand also that security is that much better by not being open 24 hours. Is Google could allow me to rate shield storage a 4.9 out of five stars I would.

This is the 2nd place I've rented a storage unit from,& has a few noticeable differences comparing an outdoor access place where I was able to arrange 24 hr access to a climate controlled 1 like this. When people still don't close the dock doors between uses,a certain amount of the advantage of climate control is noticeably lost,& I do miss being able to get to things whenever, but here I know my stuff is better monitored by cameras & overall access in general,plus come winter I won't have a repeat of a couple February's ago when I went in at 430a when temps were in single digits,& found out an hour or so later that between playing music & having utilized my truck's lights to see,when I went to leave my battery was so dead it didn't even click & my window was rolled down to boot. I had to huddle as close as I could in a secluded spot til the office by front gate opened at 9,just to stumble in & warm up for a few in the only available bathroom I knew of(another advantage here), before making my way to the parts store with my dead battery. That'll make you question how wonderful that type of setup really is...

I’ve been to a couple of different places before. Out of the others this has been the best. There are a few annoying flys from the garage doors opening. The air conditioning is depending on how cold you want your stuff, there are different levels of comfort for everyone. PLUS it has one of the cleanest bathrooms.

Johnathan was a delight to speak with, as he showed me around the facility. I highly recommend using shield storage, because the building's structure, fencing, and security cameras put this storage facility at the top tier of storage security. The facility is climate controlled, and very clean. I know my belongings are safe here from thieves, wheather, animals, and bugs. You feel it as soon as you walk in, and see the large array of security camera videos.

I can't rave enough about this place. I've been in my unit for almost a month now and they just make everything so easy and stress-free. I won't lie, I had my hesitations about renting in this location based on the surrounding area, but it's actually so secure. I had only wanted to check it out when I set up a tour time, but I immediately felt at ease when I got there and every visit since. It wasn't a hard call to cancel my unit with Public Storage and make the switch. The staff (Theresia specifically) has been absolutely amazing. She's so kind and caring, and really does seem to love her job, and it shows not only in how she interacts with customers, but in the clean and well cared for environment of the facility. If you're renting anywhere else, I recommend at least taking a tour of Shield. I'm really glad I gave them the chance.
