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?

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.

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!

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!

Signing up was so simple, or it was made simple by the staff! I was able to do everything electronically! Although some of the forms were complicated, and I had to look up some info, the person on the phone walked me through the process unbelievably patient and helpful. The facility is not only great, but it is being managed by people who know what they are doing and are very anxious to please their clients....I am very impressed by the experience, and it is important since I intend to use the storage for years to come.

Great access hours. Clean - I mean - really really clean. Nice spaces. Easily accessible. I was hesitant since it is a multi level facility, but everything is easily accessible with large carts they provide and huge elevators and wide hall ways. Very secure. And manager is amazingly friendly. Awesome customer service too!

It is my pleasure to have the opportunity to write a review for A-1 Self Storage located on Camino Ruiz. I found their site on the internet, which was very user-friendly and well done. I found the prices to be very reasonable. I read the reviews and was very impressed by what I read. So I decided to give them a call. I believe I spoke with Jennifer and she was very kind and helpful. When I went in to finalize the reserving of the unit I was equally impressed and pleased by the excellent customer service, the cleanliness of the units and I felt very secure. I would recommend A-1 Self Storage on Camino Ruiz at any time and to anyone. TS San Diego

Kim and Karen were extremely friendly and helpful. It was a refreshing, fast, and very easy move-in process! The grounds and the particular unit I chose to rent were clean and well-maintained. There are carts available for loading and unloading items from the storage, which is convenient, and I feel like my belongings are secure!

I used A-1 storage for al little over a year. my moving situation was very uncertain and in the end, I needed a place to keep my stuff and I needed a place right away. This location was close to where I was living. When I first went in the people working were really helpful and polite. The first month was free which was great, and reasonable pricing after that. The storage unit is always accessible and even at night its well lit so you won't have to worry. The key code and locks for the units are easy to figure out too. I honestly don't have any complaints! When I asked about moving out, they told me exactly what I needed to do. Since I was paying each month off, when I first called they told me I should wait until the month was up so I wouldn't lose any money. I only had to pay for the two days that I was in there the following month. They were very quick to reply to all of my emails and phone calls. Their customer service really did it for me. thank you for everything!

By far the best storage facility Ive ever used (Ive rented from 5 different places from Hemet, Temecula and San Diego). Jennifer was beyond helpful, fast and courteous when I first rented and then again when I wanted to move to a larger unit. I shopped around and they had the best prices within 25 miles, plus the ease of paying online, prorated pay if you schedule to vacate early or transfer units. The facility is always clean and still looks brand new. The inside units actually stay cooler than some other storage places that charge for air conditioned units. Only renters have access into the storage buildings and its all constantly monitored. Lights are on motion detection so theyre not wasting electricity. A huge plus is having access from 6am-10pm all week long. I highly recommend this place!
