How to Organize & Optimize Your Storage Space

One of the best ways to make your storage experience convenient and enjoyable is to plan ahead when packing your storage space. 

Here are few helpful tips to consider.

1. Keep a detailed list of all items - You should know exactly which items are going to be stored and keep a list so that you can refer to it whenever you need something. 

2. Consider using protective covering - Depending on the climate you may want to lay down moisture absorbers, a tarp, or other protective fabrics both on the floor and around valuable items.

3. Make sure you you can access items out of reach - Keep a fold-up step ladder in your storage unit so that you can easily and safely reach items that may otherwise be too high. 

4. Know which items you’ll need the most often. - Understanding which items you will use most often allows you to plan ahead and pack those things near the entrance of your storage unit for easy access. 

5. Create an aisle of space to access everything. - Pack things along the walls and leave the middle open or simply leave an aisle of space so that nothing will be out of reach. 

What storage tips do you have for organizing and optimizing your space? Let us know in the comments below!

Why you should declutter your self-storage unit this holiday season.

Chances are, you’ll be making multiple trips to your storage facility this holiday season.  To save time, it’s important to keep it clean and organized so you can spend more time with your family and less time sorting through boxes and bed frames.  Here are some reasons you may want to reorganize your self-storage unit this holiday season.

Holiday decorations  You’ll find it much easier to retrieve and restore your holiday decorations if you keep your space clean.  It’s likely been a year since you’ve accessed your holiday decor and if your storage unit isn’t clean, it probably means these items have found their way to the bottom of the pile.  Decorating is hard enough, don’t waste your time digging for decor.

Create space for household items  If you plan on being festive this holiday season, you’ll likely need to make room in your home for family and friends.  Declutter your home this holiday season to create space. An organized home helps to reduce stress and clear the mind, just what many of us need before the family arrives for dinner.

Make room for your favorite toys  It may be time to store your RV or boat.  If your storage unit is cluttered, you’ll likely waste a lot of time trying to make room for these larger items.  If you’ve acquired lots of things over the past year, it may be time to upgrade to a larger unit or rent a separate unit altogether.

Can you think of any other reasons to declutter your self storage unit this holiday season?  Let us know in the comments below!

Maximize your storage unit space by adding and removing seasonal gear.
Now that it’s heating up you are going to want easy access to all your gear for the summer such as: boats, fishing poles, swimming gear, inner tubes and more, which means you’re going to need more room in your home or garage. Your #storageunit is a great place to store gear you won’t use during the summer months to create extra space and declutter your home. 

To get started, create a list of things you won’t use and start organizing them into one place where they can be easily packed and brought to your storage unit. Having a hard time coming up with items? Here’s a list of common items to get you started.

-Sleds
-Snow Blower
-Winter Gear or Clothing
-Shovels
-Snowboards or Skis
-Winter Decorations
-Extra Bedding
-Snow Tires

What kind of winter gear will you be putting into storage? Let us know by commenting below!

Spring has arrived which means it is time to start organizing your things. 

As the season changes to warmer weather you will need to start the annual rotation of your gardening tools, outdoor gear and other equipment from your storage unit.

Spring is the perfect time to remove the extra stuff from your garage that you may not need in the summer months to come, which provides more space for the things that you do need.

Spring is also the perfect time to remove your patio furniture and the family BBQ from storage so you are prepared for backyard grilling and other fun summer activities.

What items are you excited to pull out of storage to use this summer?

I had to make arrangements long distance and found the staff at this facility, helpful, accommodating and friendly. When I arrived in town, they showed me the unit I had reserved, which was clean and ready for occupancy. They also showed me how to use the lock and access the unit, using the elevator keypad. They have hand trucks available for use and parking next to the elevator, which made unloading and transport easy and efficient. A big thank you to the staff for your excellent customer service!

WHEN I FOUND OUT THAT A1 WAS JUST BLOCKS FROM MY NEW APT I HAD TO CHECK THEM OUT AND I AM GLAD THAT I DID! I RENTED ONE OF THEIR MONTHLY SPECIALS A 10X15 ONLY 10 DOLLARS MORE THAN THE REGULAR 10X10! IT WAS THE PERFECT SOLUTION FOR ME AND I GOT THE FIRST MONTH FREE! NOT ONLY THAT BUT WHEN I WENT IN TO RENT THE SPACE, WHICH I HAD RESERVED ONLINE, JAMES UPGRADED ME TO A MUCH BETTER SPACE LOCATED MUCH CLOSER TO THE ELEVATOR WITH EASIER ACCESS. AWESOME! IT IS SO WELL RUN AND CONVENIENT. THEY SEND YOU AN EMAIL EVERY MONTH, A FEW DAYS BEFORE YOUR RENT IS DUE AND YOU HAVE THE OPTION TO SET UP AUTOMATIC PAYMENTS ONLINE,SO YOU ARE NEVER LATE WITH YOUR RENT. ALSO, ONE OF THE BEST THINGS ABOUT A1 IS THAT YOU DON'T HAVE TO SIGN A LEASE AND YOU CAN CANCEL AT ANYTIME. GREAT!!

With my busy schedule, the staff (especially JP) was extremely helpful. We figured out a solution that worked for me. They are friendly, quick and thorough. We dont always compliment the good things people do, but I wanted to do so for the staff who went out of their way for me. Thank you!!

After visiting Public Storage and a couple other storage companies in San Mateo. We found A1 storage to have the best rates and service in the area. James was extremely helpful and thoroughly answered all of our questions. Thanks for the great customer.

Back in July, I(Cynthia Behrend) had the good fortune to have JP & James at the front desk. They were courteous & patient while answering my many questions and very helpful in finding the correct size & location for our storage needs…now fast forward to 10/2 @ 5:15pm.That's when I arrived @ A-1 Storage with my movers to unload my storage unit. While the movers were unloading my unit I went to the office to do the paper work. JP explained that the A-1 Storage in Oakland would be closed by the time we arrived. He confirmed my reservation in Oakland. He explained how the kiosk worked. He gave us detailed directions to the location of the storage unit AND he gave me his phone# just in case I had difficulty with the kiosk. When the kiosk didn't respond, I called JP(it was 8pm) & he was able to help me find my reservation. Because of JP's extraordinary customer service I was able to complete the move before 10pm. I am very grateful, thank you.

They are a really good storage facility and I enjoy coming here over the alternatives. Also they work with you on the hours at least initially. Not a whole lot of places do that.

Thank you for sharing your experience, Chris. Please let us know what we can do to improve to a 5 star rating.
