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?

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.

Came here based on all of the positive reviews. My experience has been no different than most of the others. Matt was extremely helpful in getting me the storage unit I needed. I arrived late in the day, nearly closing time, and he still drove me around the premises to look at various sizes so that I could make the best decision about which of their units to go with. The facility is clean, secure, and well lit. The carts and lifts work well. Prices seem very reasonable, also got a great deal on the first month.

Pretty standard. Fine experience. Nothing went wrong. Wasn't treated like a princess. But, it's storage. They signed me up, gave me a key, and that's about all I needed. I will say after I reserved a unit they called me twice before coming in to make sure I didn't have any questions, which was nice.

Thank you, Mary!

I had a unit at this location for over 4 years while attending San Diego State University. It's a great location for students as it is very close to campus and right on the trolley line, which is nice for those without a car. The prices are reasonable and the staff is very helpful. I lost my key and instead of charging me for a locksmith or anything, they cut the lock off fee of charge! I'm very pleased with my experience at A1 Self Storage and would definitely recommend it to anyone in the area looking for storage space.

I had to find a storage unit in a hurry and as I drive by the A-1 Self Storage in Mission Valley every day, I checked them out on the Internet first. I "chatted" with Lacey who answered all of my questions regarding the size of the unit I needed for the furniture I was going to store. Kayla called within 20 minutes of making my reservation to ask if I had any questions or concerns. When I did visit the facility the next day, Chris was thorough, courteous and professional in helping to get the paperwork done quickly so I could enjoy the remainder of my weekend. Due to unforseen circumstances, I had to cancel my unit the very next day. Once again, Chris took care of my situation quickly and with the same courtesy and professionalism he showed the day before. If I'm ever in need of storage space in the future, I wouldn't go any other place but A-1 Self Storage, Mission Valley!! It's a top-class facility!

My husband and I just moved to San Diego and needed to find storage while we get situated. We’re so glad to have found your facility! We worked with both Kayla and Chris to get our two spaces set up, and couldn’t be more pleased with how friendly, organized and professional they were. We really appreciated being given a tour and thorough introduction to the place when we arrived. The entire facility and the grounds are amazingly clean, secure, and convenient – all very important to us. Working with your company has been one of the best experiences of our move (Thank you!), and we would highly recommend you to anyone looking for storage space in San Diego.
