20 x 10 Unpaved Lot in Marana, Arizona

Verified Review

"This was the perfect spot for my semi-long term storage need. Broderick is a good man and an excellent host: Polite to a fault, family-oriented, storage area fully prepared and organized, always reasonably quick to respond to communications, and when our schedules didn't synch he made arrangements to have a family member grant me access, as he wasn't going to be available personally. Overall a very good experience. Highly recommended. Thank you Broderick."

"We needed to park our car while we went on an international trip and Ryscha's place worked out to be the perfect spot for us. We were stress free during our trip knowing our vehicle was safe and secure. Ryscha was super helpful in accommodating to our medium-term storage needs and coordinating with her for both drop off and pick up was a breeze. Easily the best host in town!"
