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. 

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!

By any standards the customer service at A-1 Self Storage @ 3040 Oceanside Blvd. is excellent. I had to store my car by phone from Hawaii ( it was being cared for by my son's friend at his place in San Marcos ). I can't remember being helped by anyone more friendly and courteous than Tracey. She patiently and clearly answered all my questions, carefully explained the paperwork needed and efficiently coordinated the transaction with me by E-mail and phone - when necessary. She made it as easy as possible for me and I felt confident that my car was in good hands. I highly recommend this company to anyone for their storage needs.

Like a finely tuned ship, Tracey, Jim and David make the process run smoothly and without effort. They always say hello to me by name, assist me with any concerns that I may have and make me feel welcome. I have confidence of my items being safe on the property. Thank you A-1!

A-1 Self Storage on Oceanside Blvd. has been the most courteous and efficient storage facility I've ever used. I want to send special kudos to Tracy who has been consistently friendly, informative and just a delight to deal with. I highly recommend this facility to anyone who needs to store their possessions in one of A-1's clean units or store their car in the parking area. A+++ rating from me.

I have been storing/renting at this location since Jan. 2014. Up to July, I was happy with my experience. In July I had to move into a smaller unit. I signed a contract for a 5x10 unit, but when I started to physically move my stuff into said unit, I realized it was actually a 5x8 and 4 inches; it was ACTUALLY MEASURED at 5x8 and 4 inches. When I questioned this I was told that according to their records the unit is listed as a 5x10, so the FACT that is it WAS NOT the 5x10 I signed a contract for was a non-issue for them. The guy actually looked me in the eye and told me so AND THAT SHOULDN’T TAKE IT PERSONALLY, IT WAS JUST BUSINESS!!!! Because I was STUCK between a rock and a hard place (I had 2 men I had hired to help me waiting as I dealt with this dishonest craziness) I ended up having to rent a 5x15 (supposedly there were no 5x12s in that building) in the same building at a higher cost! I FEEL CHEATED AND ABUSED, AND THEY DON’T CARE ONE TINY BIT!

We're sorry to hear about your difficulties. Advertised unit sizes are approximations and are for comparison purposes only as the actual unit may be larger or smaller than advertised. Units are not rented by the square foot and rent is not based on square-foot measurements. If you would like to discuss your specific situation with the store's Area Manager, please email your contact details to social@a1storage.com.

I stored my belongings with A-1 for 18 months. The grounds were safe and secure. The facilities were clean, dry, and well lit. The staff was top notch and a pleasure to do business with. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for storage in the area.
