“I've been storing at Derrel's on Columbus for at least 26 years, maybe more. I've never had any kind of problem. The service has been excellent the entire time. When my time is up on this earth, I am going to have my next of kin store me in Freon in a tightly-sealed concrete vault so I can continue to collect SS and use the SS to keep paying my fees for storage; I like the place s-o-o-o-o much!.”
