Uncle Bob's Self Storage becomes Life Storage

Uncle Bob’s purchases LifeStorage

Uncle Bob's Self Storage facilities are rebranded Life Storage

For the past 30 years, our team at Uncle Bob’s Self Storage has built a great company anchored by the desire to provide the products and services that our customers need, and doing so with an eye toward providing an exceptional customer experience.

In July 2016, our parent company — Sovran Self Storage, Inc., — purchased LifeStorage, LP and its 84 self storage facilities. This acquisition and merger provided us with a unique prospect; an opportunity to revitalize ourselves and our brand with a name that better speaks to our purpose as a company: Life events trigger our customers’ need for storage. It’s our mission to simplify the challenges they face during these times by providing tremendous service and assistance.

Hence, the change in name. Welcome to Life Storage.

We’re changing our name and nothing else!

If you are or have been an Uncle Bob’s customer, you can expect the same exceptional service from the same caring associates; just a new name and fresh new look. We’ll miss the Uncle Bob’s name, but we’re excited about what Life holds for us!
