Hunting for a self storage deal? Here we lay out some tips for finding deals on the next self storage unit or parking space you rent.
 
- Do a quick check around the website to see if any coupons or discounts are being promoted.
- Check our social media pages, such as Facebook or Google Plus to see if we’ve posted any current coupons there.
- Browse availability of our storage units. We’ll sometimes showcase online specials on certain units there.
 
Something to keep in mind: storage doesn’t just come down to the price. Be sure to factor in the features available and customer service at each storage location you’re deciding between.

Storage Unit Access: What you Should Know
 
When it comes to accessing your self storage unit, not all facilities are created equal. During your hunt for storage, be sure to inquire about the following:
 
Storage Type (Drive Up, Indoor or Outdoor Lot): Where are the storage units located on the property? Are they drive up units, much like a one car garage that you can pull your car up to? Indoor storage units within the facility? Outdoor storage spaces that are similar to a parking lot?
 
Hours: What are the hours of the storage facility? Is it open on nights and weekends? Do you have 24 hour access to your unit or access only during set times of the day?

18-Wheeler Access: If you have a moving company unloading your storage items, can the storage facility accommodate their 18-wheeler (if that’s what their driving)?

How to Use a Self Storage Unit for your Small Business
 
Here’s a quick run down on the types of small businesses that could utilize a business self storage unit:
 
Retail - A storage unit is a great place to store stock for your online or brick and mortar retail shop.
 
Pharmaceutical -  Sales reps for pharmaceutical companies sometimes use self storage for receiving shipments and storing inventory of marketing materials and drug samples.
 
Medical or Law Offices - Doctor’s offices and law offices are required to keep voluminous amounts of documents. A well organized, climate controlled storage unit can be a good place to store files.
 
Landscaping - A centrally located storage unit can be a helpful location to store your equipment for your landscaping or gardening small business.

Utilizing a self storage unit can be a flexible, cost-effective piece of the dynamic puzzle of running your small business

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!

I've had a great experience renting a small storage unit from A-1 Self Storage in Lakeside. It was super easy to reserve a space online, and someone called right away to confirm. When I took my boxes today to check in, I was impressed by the highly professional, helpful staff and thorough protocol to ensure safety and security. Also, the facilities are spotless. I feel very confident about this facility.

Thank you so much, Sandra. We value your business & appreciate that you've taken the time to share your experience!

I was forced to buy renters insurance at an additional $10.00 per month. I am storing a few boxes of kitchen ware for two to three months. The value is about $100.00. I did not want renters insurance, I was not told when I put the unit on hold and all charges were discussed at that time.
Response from the owner - a week ago
We're sorry to hear you're dissatisfied, Gail. If you have an existing homeowners or renters insurance policy that covers your items while in storage, we'd happily accept that documentation. Please contact your facility or email social@a1storage.com if you would like further assistance with this issue.

I was off work to help my 80 year old Dad pack up his 5 bdrm (plus shed and garage) home to move closer to me. (He had been a 4 hour drive ) I was still up there and needed local storage NOW. Lori arranged to allow my husband and brother to start the process and for me to transfer later. She has been a gem assisting over the phone and getting the guys in a unit! I can't thank her enough for her compassion to a frazzled daughter attempting to help her Dad!
Response from the owner - a month ago
Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience with us, Dee. We'll be sure to forward your kind words to Lori!

Oh yes I am so glad to say that the a1 is by far the last storage unit place I would ever recommend or use for that matter. I went to the Lksd office the place stunk, literallLy And not only did it have a very strong body odor smell the man inside continues ly wondered like he was on drugs and I didn't want to get a unit but after I existed every other option I had to so I thought. So I went back to get it when I witnessed a car stereo being stolen straight from this guy's stuff when his back was turned. The best part after the man came to realize it was missing he ran into office to report it and the guy seemed very helpful but after the guy that had been robbed left the guy behind the counter says ya I am getting rid of him speaking like the radio hadn't been stolen. So I believe that the manager guy is in on a big theft ring please watch out here

Clean, secure, and well lit, inside and out. They keep the climate inside the building nice, too, which is definitely appreciated while moving boxes around in the summertime. I only ever had one issue (front office couldn't find my insurance paperwork), but it was resolved quickly.

Very clean and nice staff. It can get crowded and not enough equipment if 10 people are there moving stuff around at the same time. It is very expensive. 5x5 is 72/month which is ridiculous but it is what it is. I have found places that are 10-15/month cheaper.
Response from the owner - 8 months ago
Thank you for your feedback, Quinten!
