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)?

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!

clean and well-lit facility with very convenient access (# of doors, elevators, loading bays, dollies, etc.) would have continued to stay if they had a 5x5 available when I moved out most of my belongings.
Response from the owner - 4 months ago
Thank you for sharing, Nathan! Please be sure to know if you'd like to waitlist for a 5x5 unit. We can contact you when one becomes available.

Had a great experience at A1! Chris was super friendly and helpful and the rental process was quick and easy. My unit was ideally located close to the back driveway making loading and unloading a breeze. Always a lot of carts handy too. The entire place seems very well cared for, clean and well lighted too. Only needed it for a month but if I ever need storage again this is definitely the place I'll be using. Highly recommend!
Response from the owner - 2 years ago
Thank you for the feedback, T.A. It's so great to hear you had an excellent experience.

I am finding A-1 Self Storage to be the best in town. Chris & Gio are very friendly and the property is very clean. They have really great access times. I work odd hours so I need to access my stuff early in the morning and late in the evening and they have hours that accommodate that. Not to mention, my storage is well lit, which is important for me to find things. So, if you are looking for a storage this is the place!!
Response from the owner - 2 years ago
Great to hear, Ginger! We'll be sure to share your comments with Chris & Gio.

Just moved out of here and I can honestly say I had an enjoyable experience. Clean facility and good customer service... The people in the office have changed a bit, but I ended on a good note. Shannon in the office is very nice and made moving out simple and quick. Would definitely come back if I ever needed storage again
Response from the owner - 11 months ago
We're so glad to hear we've earned your repeat business, James. That's quite a compliment!

I could write about the many services and reliable security that A-1 Self Storage provides, but you can read that for yourself on their website or Google page. I would like to comment on their concern for, and ethical treatment of, their clientele. I have been a customer for over 3 years now, and A-1 has made good on all promises they have made. Honesty is a big factor in my choosing with whom I do business. A-1 has not only kept their word, but care enough about their clients to work with them on any special needs that client may have. Bravo, A-1!! In a time of corporate and government deceit on an epic scale, it is nice to see a company who puts the needs of their customers ahead of the almighty dollar. My heart-felt thanks!!
