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?

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!

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.

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!

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.

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!!

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 - 9 months ago
Great to hear, Ginger! We'll be sure to share your comments with Chris & Gio.

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 - a year ago
Thank you for the feedback, T.A. It's so great to hear you had an excellent experience.

Our moving experience was quick and easy. We only had our storage unit for less than a month; the unit was clean and fairly easy to get to. When we moved out it was the same - quick and easy. Thanks.
Response from the owner - a year ago
Great to hear, Gloria! Please let us know how we can improve to a 5 star experience.
