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. 

What storage tips do you have for organizing and optimizing your space? Let us know in the comments below!

My great grandfather asked me to help him review his storage place. He is about to turn 85 and says hes too old to learn how to "make a google" so I had to do it for him. He has rented here forever and loves A-1. He really likes that the same two people have worked there for as long as he has. He told me that Phyllis is very nice and Patrick is a respectful young man.

Please be sure to tell your grandfather thank you, Peter. We're so glad to hear about his experience!

I was rather stunned by the practices of ALL storage units these days, but once I realized every single one of them were charging "administrative" and "security" fees, in addition to exorbitant rental fees, this particular facility seemed like the lesser of all the evil options. Unlike one of the the biggest storage options, the person who answered my phone inquiries at A-1 was upfront and honest about the fees I would be paying. And unlike the large storage place a friend rented at about the same time, my stuff was pretty easily accessible for me. There were carts in the elevators that you could use to move your stuff in and out. At the facility where my friend rented, she had to go into the office and leave her driver license every time she needed to use a cart! I was grateful that A-1 spared me that headache. The employees I encountered at A-1 were very friendly and helpful. Well, one woman was rather humorless, but not rude. Overall, I would say A-1 was a better option than their competitors as far as storage goes. I'm glad I had the time to do a little research before renting. Had I chosen one of the other ones I looked into, I would have been very disappointed and angry.

Patrick provides top notch customer service at A-1 Storage. He is professional, friendly, courteous, efficient and very helpful. Whenever a voice mail was left at A-1, he was prompt in returning my calls, He worked with us when we needed to break up the payment, since we weren't sure when the unit would be vacated after 6+months of renting. I will definitely use them again for any storage needs we may have. The unit was safe, clean, and very accessible. If you are in the market to rent a unit, definitely go with A-1 Storage for the best prices and A+ customer service! I wish other businesses would provide such high quality customer service as we found in Patrick and Phyllis.

I have been an A-1 customer since 2009. At first my experience was favorable, then as time progressed your true colors appeared, meaning your concern for your customers is only motivated by their ability to pay their rents on time. I have been late on numerous occasions and your personnel Phyllis and Patrick have been down right rude and condescending towards me. I feel as if you haven't appreciated the time I have been a customer. Your rates continue to increase constantly. You threaten to auction my unit without sufficient notice to catch up on rents. Please note: my motivation to become a customer was from the loss of three(3) family members within 6-months of each. My grief was horrendous accented by the loss of my job during a flatulent economy. Phyllis and Patrick were not very supportive as managers of your facility, always condescending with a courteous flare. That's rude and unappreciative. Patrick sends e-mails constantly without attachment, and blames me because the attachment is not sent, stating I or my e-mail address is the blame, very rudely. At this point, I am in fear that I will lose the contents of my storage space because I am late a week or so. I live in the Lakewood, Ca. area and it's difficult to get to to the storage location on a regular basis, and communication is mostly made through phone or emails. I don't appreciate the service I have received from A-1, and intend to remove my property as soon as possible. I hope that you as a business establishment can appreciate your customers in any circumstance, that's where you earn favorable business ratings.

I needed a space to store my valuable documents and personal items when I went homeless. A1 was just down the block and I talked to Phyliss and Patrick about my needs and they recommended the space I have there today. Its safe, secure and they make it a point to email me when situations arise that need to be immediately addressed. I would recommend A1 to anyone who asked me if I know a great place to store their items.
