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!

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.

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!

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.

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!

Wonderful, clean, super professional, all of the above. I've rented with Stephanie, Patricia, and the lovely late Kristie for years. They always go the extra mile for their customers. I'm onsite quite a bit and get to observe their dedication to their facility and tenants ! As a business owner, there amenities help me run my company more efficiently. Three years ago I wrote the president of A-1 a letter commending the staff and facility on their fantastic service. Kristie would be proud I finally put my sentiments online for the world to see. Thanks A-1 staff for all you do.

WOW!! Quick. Fast. Easy. CLEAN! CLEAN! CLEAN! I went to the place today to rent a small unit. I just have boxes. Very impressed. Patricia helped me. And Kristie helped her help me (instead of hanging out in the back somewhere). Nice facility. Clean Storage. Well lit. Mine is inside. Locks were included in the price. First month free or $1.00 (whatever it is, it's real). No long contracts. I got the 5 X 5 space I needed for way under $50.00 out the door. Awesome. And the ladies were extra nice. Go! Go! Go! (No, I'm not paid)

The young ladies that work at A1 are all extremely helpful and more than willing to show you around the entire facility until you find what you're looking for. The facility itself is practically brand new, clean, and very easily accessible. There is plenty of space to park and un/load even if you don't have a drive-up unit. Above all, it is far cheaper than the competition. After shopping around, glad I went with A1.

I've utilized the storage space at A1 Storage for almost 2 years. And the service has been good most of the time. It is a safe place to keep your valuables. I've never had a problem with security.And most of the staff are friendly and attentive to my needs. I miss Susan. She was nice, down to earth and professional combined.So far, the new staff are just as friendly. The bathroom has shown much improvement. I don't like the low pressured flush, it doesn't work well. A bathroom should always be clean, and equipped with soap, toilet paper and paper towels. And I recognize the improvement in the last few months.This is a good place, But I wish the rates had not increased. Still not too bad, compared to other places.

I was in the market for an indoor storage facility for one of my vehicles. I did numerous Internet searches and found A-1 Self Storage in Paramount, CA. I first reviewed their website and noticed it contained the current space availabilities and prices. I also reviewed their facility using satellite view of one of the popular Internet map sites and it appeared very clean and secure. Then I went to review the facility in person and found it to be new, clean and well maintained, ample space, and ample security cameras. The people I spoke with, both on the phone and in-person, were very friendly, helpful and accommodating. I feel very fortunate to find a clean, secure, friendly facility at a great price. I would enthusiastically recommend A-1 Self Storage to anyone needing great storage at a great price. A++++++++++
