My son is a student at Washington University in St. Louis and needed to a storage unit for the summer. We priced units in St. Louis which were much more expensive. Our willingness to be flexible with a longer drive saved us a lot of money. We were very pleased with the Columbia Gateway Storage Mall. The community of Columbia seems extremely safe and is an adorable small town. The storage facility is gated and has a monitoring system 24 hours a day. It is located in a quiet residential area of town. The customer service provided by the owner Alex Erbs and Daniel has been extremely responsive, professional, and courteous. Both have gone the extra step to answer our questions and provide exceptional service. I would recommend this storage facility, especially to other WASH U families who need storage.
