A-1 Self Storage

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?

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.

Tips on choosing a self-storage facility that’s right for you.

There are several things you need to consider when choosing a self-storage facility. 
Choose a facility that is secure. Facilities with security features can help reduce crime. It’s also important to consider the security of the property overall. Is it well-lit? Is it located in a safe neighborhood? Is there a fence around the property?
Make sure the accessibility hours work for you. It’s important to ensure you will be able to access your belongings at a time that works with your schedule. It’s also important to note the access policy to see if it’s possible to have a family member or friend access your unit if needed.
Consider your needs and budget before beginning your search. It’s helpful to understand what your needs are before beginning your search. For example, if you have a lot of large, valuable furniture that you need stored for a short amount of time it may be worth considering paying extra for a larger space. If you need a place you can access often then you’ll want to prioritize on the location and proximity from your home or work.

How much storage do you need?!  
It is important estimate the amount of storage space you will need for your belongings before purchasing a rental unit. Take inventory of the items headed into storage and write it down. Be sure to measure the dimensions of large bulky items like appliances and furniture. Take note of what is stackable and what is not. Plan for needing extra space so you have room to make a walkway to get to the back of your unit. Give us a call for more #storagetips, or comment with your own!

Are you planning on making a move anytime soon?

Get enough supplies - plan on needing extra boxes, tape and bubble wrap. Running out of supplies will only slow your move down. If your move requires dollies and hand trucks make sure they are available. 

Label everything - Make sure to label every box with its contents. This will speed up your unpacking process. 

Plan your move on a weekday when banks, utilities and other offices are open.

Reach out for help - No one enjoys the chore of moving, recruit family and friends to help with the move and make it fun. 

Let us know how the move goes and if you have any tips to share!

Storing in the #Summer:

Moving out of your apartment or dorm for the summer? Self-storage is the perfect solution for this time of year! Keep your things in one place ready to go for your next move. What’s the trick to finding the best spot for your stuff? Here are some starter ideas:

1) What size of unit do you need? - Most students find that a 5x5 unit is ideal for storing everything that won’t fit in the back of your car, but check with our storage experts for your perfect fit.
2) What amenities are useful? - Check out our access hours so you know when you can swing by to drop off or pick up a few boxes!
3) Preparing your stuff - Remember to defrost, clean, and dry your mini fridge. It’s also a great idea to clean your microwave to prevent mold. Never store any food or drink items, no matter how non-perishable!
4) Packing your stuff - Store books in multiple smaller boxes so they don’t get too heavy. 
5) Keep in touch - Keep a business card with our phone number,  your storage unit number, and gate access code. And always call with questions!

Share with your friends to spread the word about storage during the summer!

Very clean, secure and well kept facility. I like all of the technology used but Brian Smith really increased the level of our experience with his calm and professional attitude. My worst nightmare is a long drawn out paperwork frenzy when renting most anything. Brian got me in and out with now hassles. I will rent here again for sure.

I reserved a space online, got a confirmation email with my reservation, the site manager contacted me via phone to see if I had any questions, went to look at the space, and had the contract drawn up shortly thereafter. Great service, clean facility, looking forward to being tenants!!

This is the best place ever to store your personal belongings! I have had a unit here for 3 years now and have been very happy! The manager Brian, has been very helpful and pleasant, each and every time I have spoke with him. The building is so nice and clean, along with being well lit, if you need to be there at night.. It is never overcrowded with a lot of people, and the hours of operation are such a great help, with having access to you unit. This A1 Storage is the total package, very professional and I would definitely recommend it to anyone that wants to feel comfortable, safe, and in a clean (even smells good) environment! Thank you staff, for your hard work and kindness, I am a very satisfied customer!

I've been a long time customer but good fortune has given me the opportunity to own a home, so I will be giving up my storage unit. I just want to compliment Brian on many years of great service and he has been very helpful and even gave me a push when my motorcycle battery died!
Response from the owner - a month ago
Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience, Michele. We wish you all the best in your new home!

Excellent... The building is so clean and organized. I was looking for other storage, but nothing compared to this. Must of the storage around the area are dark or wood made; this facility is concrete and steel made. If you care about your personal belongings, this is the right place for you... Brian (manager) is very kind and professional.

Great in and out secure access. Large elevators with great carts available at elevator rather than having to give up driver's license to get one to haul to unit. Configuration of building interior facilitates easy access in and out of elevators and units. Manager is friendly, responsive, and knowledgeable. The kiosk and direct phone are great. I recommend it highly
