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.

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

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)?

When I first moved in the staff was rude and not helpful but I needed a storage place so I over looked it. My rent was raised for some bogus reason without notice and without an opportunity to switch to a different unit. So I was left with a unit that had a pipe blocking the top half of the unit so I had space I couldn't even use. Next I left my stuff inside for 6 months and I come back to spider webs all over my stuff dead spiders and cockroaches inside my unit. Very unsanitary.

We're sorry to hear that you're dissatisfied. We work hard to provide the best value to our customers through competitive pricing and by maintaining clean, safe, and secure facilities. Your original monthly rate is not guaranteed for the life of your rental with A-1. From time to time, we find it necessary to make adjustments to our customers' rental rates in order to keep up with the rising costs associated with providing top-notch service and a clean, secure facility. We also provide monthly pest control, so we are surprised to hear that you had an issue.

Being evicted for the attempt to change my outfit with my unit door down. I was in the unit for less than 5 minutes. I've seen homeless people live in those units and now I am being evicted without even warning! Would never think that could happen to me!!! I called to explain what happened but they didn't care to listen. Besides experiencing extreme embarrassment I have to move out in 10 days. My worst experience, will never recommend a-1 storage to any of my friends or more importantly customers that I've been referring to them in the past. I never complained about their broken lift when I had to carry tons of heavy items up the stairs but now am being a victim of an awful customer service.

We very explicitly state upon sign up that tenants may not be in their unit with the door closed for any reason. For the safety of all of our customers, we have a zero tolerance policy in this regard. We hope that any issues or suspicious activity is reported to us immediately, as we take seriously the safety of our customers.

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.

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.
