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.

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!

This is the second time that we rent a storage space at A1-Self Storage in La Mesa. The facility is clean and we didn't have any problems the last time we rented here so I hope that we don't have any issues this time too! (cross my fingers) ;) I went in on Sunday and was helped by Lulu who is just such a sweet lady and very professional. I felt very welcomed by her. She was very knowledgeable of the product that I was inquiring about. The only thing that I don't particularly like is the increase fees ( first increase is like at the 6 month's date and then again at your year mark, and then once a year after that) I don't mind the year increase but the 6 month increase I do. I recommend A-1 Self Storage, La Mesa to my family and friends!

Had amazing customer service and even took me to take a look at the storage to make sure it was going to be what i needed. Showed me the complex and everything they had, where to park, and everything. They are extremely detailed and helpful. Left me with no questions to ask and feeling like my things were going to be at the safest place while im out to sea.

Received excellent service from Fran. Fair prices and good access hours but the service from Fran was what tipped the favor over other storage options close by.

Let me start off by saying that I have rented storage units for many years and A-1 self storage on spring st. exceeded my expectations! Fran and Lulu had me signed up and had a thorough view of unit and all its amenities in a efficient amount of time, now that's what I call EXCELLENT TEAM WORK!!!!! Everything from the office to the storage was very clean. Fran was very nice and very professional and answered all my questions. I'm very happy I was highly recommended to A-1 self storage and I strongly encourage anyone to rent from here. Keep up the good work!

The fellows who helped me were very professional and knowledgeable. They were warm and personable in getting me set up to move into my new storage. The facility was clean and well maintained. The process for accessing my unit when the office was closed was easy to learn and understand. I am very pleased about being a customer at A-1 Storage at Spring St. in La Mesa.
