Local customers are saying:

"John Valentin was very helpful and attentive…definitely surpassed what I expected from a storage place. I’ve had experiences with other storage places before and by far this one made it more pleasant. GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE!!!!"

"I’ve been a Palm Beach CubeSmart customer for many years and have been very satisfied with the facilities and staff. When the need for another unit in the Miami area presented itself, I selected the brand-new facility on 1103 SW 3rd Avenue. Once I arrived to complete my lease, I was greeted by General Manager, John Valentin, and Manager, Dario Cruz, who were courteous and informative. I was provided with an orientation of the entire facility, including security measures and service hours. I also reserved their truck for the transfer of my items. I highly recommend this outstanding storage facility and their professional management team. Thanks John and Dario!"
