"I want to thank you for all you have done for me and my family."
  —H. Olson (Former Tenant)

Best Experience ever, if you need to store things this is the place, good rates, great service and  super friendly manager. The Manager goes out of her way to make the customer experience a good one. I know that dropping off my payment in person will be met with a smiling friendly face that brightens my day. I highly recommend North Star Mini Storage in Burnsville, I have rented from them many years at at several different times. Thank Barbara for the great service!!!
  —Brian N. 3/15/2014

This storage facility is awesome! Never in a million years did I think it mattered were we stored our stuff but the professional and friendly service was exceptional! The grounds are protected and always kept pristine. The halls and lockers are kept clean. I always felt very safe while I was there. The management was not only helpful but excellent at communication. If I ever need storage again, I will definitely be calling this place again.
  —Kelly Belina

Clean, safe, secure, professional and very personable. These are the words I can easily associate with North Star Mini Storage in Burnsville. As a business leader, I appreciate the Management,  (she has a memory of a herd of elephants) and her personal yet professional approach to the business. My wife even commented, "I can't believe Barbara knows everyone's name." She makes it easy to want to "sign up." If you need storage, look here first. You won't be disappointed (and you will agree) !!!!!
  —Chuck Kitchen

I'll never forget the day I walked into North Star Mini Storage!! I was lost, broken, confused, and looking for a place to store my "life". The Manager was amazing!!  She took me under her wing and found just the right space for all my things. Gave me hope, and promises of a brighter future! How awesome to have had someone care enough on a personal level and to help out so much on a business level.  I would absolutely recommend North Star Mini Storage (and have).
  —Anne H, Burnsville

Storage unit 2315 has been a temporary home to some of our belongings for these past 13 months.  From Day One, when we called and talked to with a very warm and dynamic person while searching for storage space and we later learned we were talking to Barbara.  Barbara was the reason we chose North Star Mini Storage in Burnsville.  Her zest and sparkle just sort of adds life to what is typically a dull event-storing stuff.  We found ourselves choosing to drop off our montly payment in person, just to say hi, instead of paying online, which we normally do.  We appreciated the virtual aboretum created with plants outside the front entrance to the office.  In our opinion the plantings evidenced corporate's desire to make the whole storage thing more friendly. 
  —Woody and Carolyn Smith

Over the past 7 years I have had the great satisfaction and security in your services.  North Star Mini Storage has offered and given me great ease of mind knowing my items were secure.  You have a great facility!
  —Gerald L., Forest Lake

I live near Grand Forks, and I've got nothing but praise for the folks at North Star Mini-storage in Shoreview. Mike is always friendly and helpful - he comes through in a pinch whenever I have an odd request. I've used other storage facilities before, and I've found that Shoreview North Star is better than the rest. Secure, trusted, and my go-to mini-storage when I'm in the Twin Cities. Thanks Mike, and thanks North Star!
  —Mike Defreece, Climax MN

Convenient locations, friendly staff, and well-maintained storage units make North Star Mini Storage an excellent choice for all your storage needs. We highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a clean, safe, and secure storage facility.
  —Josh & Heidi, St. Paul

My wife and I (mainly me) finally bit the bullet and accepted the fact that we needed additional storage space. It was this winter when I finally pulled the PC out of my den and out into the living room. Thus sealing the fate of my happy place as a slow but methodical march of junk ultimately pushed me out of the place I had once found such peace. Well, no more! I soon found myself at your Shoreview location. It was there that I met your manager, Mike, and my education began...

I had never used a self-storage facility before was pleasantly surprised at how high tech and modern the facility is. Mike helped me assess the amount of space I needed and at no point was I confused about what he was saying. Typically in new purchasing environments such as this I know I'm being pressured when I start feeling confused about what I should pick. This was not the case at all. I felt I had a good handle on what my options were and their associated pros and cons. Mike was engaged and gave me advice on how I could maximize the space I was allocated. This was a pleasant experience.

I will now always consider North Star to be my go-to triage option for space management going forward.

Keep up the great work!
  —John C.

Thank you Barby and North Star!  I looked at many storage facilities before I decided to rent at North Star. From price, cleanliness, customer service and security, they are way above their competition!  I would highly recommend this facility to all!
  —Jane M, Windsor CA

I have been a customer of North Star Mini Storage for over 3 years. I find the price for my unit to be very reasonable. The security is great! They have a security gate and many security cameras. My storage unit even has it's own alarm. The lot is very well lit and the facility is always nicely maintained. Mike and Tom (the managers) have been there the entire time and they are very friendly. AND, they work with me. I have an occasional need to store a snowmobile trailer for a night or two AND they allow it! It is nice to work with guys that take their job seriously and are happy to do it. I highly recommend North Star Mini Storage
  —Joe Enos

Friendly staff and tough security. Gate pin access, tons of cameras, and individual alarms on garage doors. I couldn't be happier.

  —Christopher Wassburg

Good prices, GREAT security...and best of all, Exceptional customer service! Mike and Tom in the office made this so easy and worry free! I could not be more pleased! A+++++++ Will highly recommend to friends!
  —Orono Guy

North Star Mini Storage It is clean, secure (a double security system, if you will) and the Manager, Barbara is wonderful. I highly recommend North Star Mini Storage! 
  —Douglas Petri, Burnsville

I was helping a friend find a unit and went directly to North Star. I had heard a number of good things about them and they certainly lived up to their reputation. We were unsure what size would work the best and the employee at Minnetonka had no problem showing us a few different units. He even gave a suggestion of what would work best, and it was the perfect size.

Ive rented at many other places, and by far North Star Mini Storage (I rented at the Burnsville location)  is the most professional, clean and safe facility I have ever used.  I absolutely recommend them and Barbara, the Manager is professional and caring.  Thank you so much.  If I ever need storage again, I will never rent anywhere else!
  —Katy Higby

Thank you for help during this last year.  Mike, the Shoreview Manager was always courteous, helpful and professional.  I would recommend North Star Mini Storage in Shoreview to anyone looking for a clean, safe and good price rental storage unit.

I am writing to say that we have had a storage unit at your Shoreview location for several years and have been very pleased with everything.  Whenever we would enter I would say that “This is a very well managed business”.  I also want to commend Mike Webber for his very helpful respectful service in person and by phone every time I contacted him, even remembering my name.
We have cleaned out our unit this past week but if we ever need one again, we would certainly use your services.
Sincerely,  Norma and James Mengel

  —Norma and James Mengel

Highly recommend this place, . The staff is wonderful .. ask for Barby she's the best, very warm and caring... she'll take real good care of you and you'll leave knowing and with a feeling that your things are safe.
  —Renee Thorpe Burke

Ive been storing my furniture at the Burnsville location going on a year, and the stabilization of temperature inside the tunnels, especially in the winter is totally awesome and free of humidity and condensation.
  —Aaron Blodgett

"I rented space at Northstar Storage for 5 years; longer than I initially anticipated. But I was super impressed by the spotless and climate controlled environment provided. I always felt my personal items stored were very safe there. The facility is very secure and fenced it. Also, I was so impressed with the office staff. Always friendly, upbeat, professional, and approachable for questions and assistance.
I highly recommend this storage facility if you are looking for a place, no matter how much you need to store. If I need extra storage for myself I will definitely contact them again.

  —Kathy K

North Star Mini Storage in Burnsville is where we rented and not only was the facility convenient, and so clean, but Manager Barbara always had a wink and a smile for us.   We highly recommend North Star to store your things.  Safe, secure, and always accomadating.

I would like to thank Barbara and her staff at North Star Mini Storage-Burnsville. In transistion of moving I needed storage for about a year. They were awesome in finding me an available unit and became like friends rather than just a business. Their pricing for storage was the best in the area, the facility and grounds were always clean. Once I forgot to lock my storage unit, and they called me almost immediately to notify me as they saw it unlocked during their daily routine inspections. That I thought was way above and beyond their duties.
Thanks again, 
George Kramer

You’re grounds look great!  So nice to see a manager  that takes pride in the property!   Minnetonka
  —Sean M

Tom in Minnetonka is so nice, so helpful and just awesome!  Everyone here is so friendly and willing to help!

  —Jane G (former Minnetonka City Council Member)

Wonderful facility.  Clean and secure.  Friendly Managers worked with me to help find space that fit our needs. We needed 2 units (one for garage storage and one for household) in the Burnsville area while our new home was being built.  I highly recommend them.

If you need storage solutions, look no further!!  Barb and North Star Mini Storage is the place to be!!  Not only are their rates great and VERY competitive, the climate controlled facility and security systems can't be beat.  And Barb is wonderful!!  I made the mistake of losing my key when I moved out after I bought a new home, and Barb helped me take care of everything.  She's a gem and I'm so glad I used this facility.  Don't shop anywhere else, you already have what you're looking for here!
  —Dee H

We have really enjoyed getting to know you, Barbara and have all good things to say about
North Star Storage, the premises and service are excellent!! I would
Recommend this facility to friends and family!!
Thanks for everything!!


  —P. Lacey

Dear Ms. Espy,
I  will be vacating unit 4037 around March 16, 2016. Let me say what a pleasure it has been working with kick-butt women like you. The facilities are exemplary and the customer service fabulous. You and your staff gave comfort and assurance through some difficult times.
Thanks for your good works, --JoLee A.Vinge

  —JoLee A. Vinge-Burnsville MN

I never thought in my life that I would ever post a review about a product and if I did that it would be about Self Storage, but this is a must. These folks at North Star are incredible. They have followed an age old formula of treating people with respect, compassion, and encouragement and combined it with a decent product at a fair price. Over the last 18 months since my situation made it necessary for me to seek out storage for all my life's belongings times have been hard but each month I stopped in to pay my rent and chat with Chuck I would come away encouraged and thankful. Good folks they are. I would recommend them to anyone and guarantee you will be satisfied. Joanne Deguire
  —Joanne Deguire

Chuck is a fantastic manager of North Star Mini Storage! Stayed open on Christmas Eve an hour later, due to a facility problem the day before. He willingly gave up two hours of his time and closed much, much later. Friendly person, awesome service, and very willing to work with you! I would definitely recommend North Star Mini Storage to anyone looking for a reliable place to store your things, as well as great people to work with. Thanks, Chuck!
  —Nisarg Gandhi

clean and totally secure, plus I've unfortunately been in a tough position financially and was still treated kindly during my tardy periods, which actually stands out more than anything in my mind.
  —mike carney

Really enjoyed my storage experience here. Larry and Kathy are kind, knowledgeable and keep a VERY clean facility. I stored elsewhere several years ago. The property was dirty all the time and it did not feel secure. Thank you for for making this experience a better one.
  —Wendy MacDonald

They are great people. Very understanding and not out to sell your stuff😃
  —Gerardo Cerecedes

Units are very clean and dry; management was always happy to help. In a year of climate-controlled storage I never worried about security, water damage, or other issues. Move-in and move-out were a snap.
