I came to a-1 looking for a storage facility that could take care of my stuff better than the place I was at before. As soon as I walked into the office I knew I would be treated well.Both Kathleen and Billy asked what could they do to help me out. They found me a perfect unit for exactly what I needed and the rental process was really quick and easy. I have recommended people to come to this facility. its so clean ,well-lit and the people are wonderful. Awesome job A-1

I'm currently a customer of A-1 Storage. Their rates are excellent. Easy online payment system. Clean facilities. Super friendly staff. Kathleen and Billy are extremely knowledgeable with all the in's and out's of policies, processes and procedures. Relatively new, I appreciate the security, expanded hours to access hours, parking spacings, loading docks and most of the location next to the I-5 freeway. This makes transporting to and from the storage locker very convenient.

A great place to rent a storage unit! Good location, easy access…new, clean modern facility with good lighting and hours. The plus here, though, is the very friendly and helpful staff. Kathleen and Billy were just great in helping me with my questions and then getting me through the initial paperwork. They even offered me a bottle of chilled water! Wow! In contrast to the place I've been at the last2 years where they barely looked at me and the staff turned over every 90 days, this was a slice of heaven! Highly recommended.

What can I say about A-1 in San Juan except that it is one of the nicest facilities I have seen. I have used storage before but not like this place. The hallways are well lit and clean, they have music and the staff is excellent. I met the property manager kathleen, she was so friendly and informative. She showed me a great unit that was really accessible and made it painless when it came to paperwork. She really impressed me with her level of customer service. I tell all my friends when they need storage go to A-1.

Came here when they first opened it was so nice and clean and brand new. I met both Kathleen and Billy and they were so helpful in getting me my unit and when I found that I needed more than one they found me another closer unit by the one I was in. I ended up moving out of state but my goods are still there they have really easy online payment options I would recommend to anyone

What a great, brand new facility. Everything is very clean, no strange odors and the music in the hallways is a nice touch to make it not seem so empty if you are there by yourself. To top it all off, the staff is very friendly and easy to work with.

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.

3 Holiday Moving Money Saving Tips

Moving around the holidays can present a limited budget for your move, and for the holiday season. Here are some money saving moving tips to help your keep your budget, and your holiday season, merry & bright.


1.  Stop all Home Services Early

Be sure to call the cable company, gas and electric company, water company, or any company that provides services for your home and cancel your services on time. Many people end up paying extra for services not cancelled prior to move out. Plan ahead and schedule a shut off date.

2.  Don’t Move During Rush Hour

If possible, avoid moving during rush hour. Gas for large moving trucks can be expensive, and sitting in traffic will waste a lot of gas. If you are moving long distance, try to plan rest stops around heavy traffic hours.

3.  Compare Prices

When it comes to the truck, moving supplies, new home services, or self storage, call around and compare pricing. Speak to neighbors and friends to get recommendation for great businesses and great prices. Doing so can help you save hundreds of dollars.

Following these three simple steps will help you save time & money this holiday season!

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!

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.

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!
