Life Storage, Inc. (formerly Sovran Self Storage, Inc.) is a fully integrated, self-administered and self-managed real estate investment trust (REIT) that acquires and manages self storage properties. Since entering the industry in 1985, we have grown to one of the largest self storage companies in the world with over 700 self storage facilities in 28 states.
For many years we’ve been known as Uncle Bob’s Self Storage® – a brand that is well recognized and well respected in the communities we call home. However, a lot has changed since we started storage operations in 1985; our company and our industry have matured.
Today we thrive on technology – web marketing, social media, a sophisticated revenue management system, and a 24-hour call center drive our business.
We are excited to introduce our new brand, Life Storage® – a name that better reflects who we are and why we exist; to help our customers when life happens.
