I started my search for storage by using online reviews. With a little leverage on locations, I soon found my attention drawn to A-1 Storage High Street. I asked for a space quote online, and found it reasonable. I went into the location the next day with a packed van, and 10 minutes later was moving in my stuff, with size and price exactly as indicated. The team is always super pleasant, the space remarkably clean, and the access entirely satisfactory. I've even walked from Fruitvale BART from time to time and found it accessible. The fun music had me dancing on occasion, and I'm hoping the security cameras didn't catch that part :-) Moving out, when the time came, was also as simple and transparent as could be hoped-for. I will definitely be doing business with these fine folks again--I just wish they'd go national.

This has been my third time renting from this facility and I've always received exceptional service. The facility is so convenient for me since I just live across the water, it's always clean, it's affordable (I researched other facilities in the area) and sits beautifully next to the water which makes the experience even better. I would highly recommend this place.

Great customer service, quick knowledgeable staff and very helpful. They helped me out with available discounts and set me up with 2 perfect units. Would recommend them highly over Extra Space who are bandits! they send you a letter 3 days after you move in saying they are raising your rent next month! Great location, access and very clean facility. Keep up the good work.

I have been a customer at this storage facility for years unfortunately, and I recently had a terrible experience with them. They increased my rent on a unit that was $362, for a 20 x 10 ( not cheap to begin with ! ) to $385. without writing me and giving me any notification of this, and even when I paid over the phone with the head Manager she did not bother to mention to me that my rent was increased by $23. /month. REALLY NOT COOL and they have made plenty of money off me and I have only been late with a payment maybe twice in 5 yrs.

Like most storage companies, we move in customers at discounted rates. We therefore review those rates and sometimes make adjustments accordingly. We hope you understand these adjustments are needed in order to keep up with the rising costs associated with providing top-notch service and a clean, secure facility. If you would like to speak with an Area Manager about your situation, please email social@a1storage.com.

Not the cheapest of all storage facilities but they will try to work with you as best they can. It is indoor and very clean. Moving back to the Bay Area from the east coast my fiancé and I needed to find a place quick for our things since he will be deploying soon. The girls here for us in and showed us some options before we rented out anything and made sure we got everything we needed before we left. I appreciate the customer service that is provided here 100%!!!

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?
