A-1 Self Storage

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?

We've collected 70 toys for the #ToysforTots  toy drive this year! We love thinking about all the smiling faces these toys will bring on Christmas Day!

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.

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.

Just want to say this place is great, excellent service, clean and secured. They do keep their words as advertised 1st month free. I've used A-1 SS in the past about 6 years ago, now I rented again no complain, the services and representative is very professional. I definately come back in the future.

Welcome back, Lynn! We love to hear we've earned your repeat business. Thank you.

Corina was very helpful & she found me the unit that I needed very fast & efficiently. I would definitely recommended A-1 storage to others; it is WAY better than Public Storage. Keep Corina around, she does great work! 😊

Thanks, Michelle! We'll be sure to pass on your kind comments to Corina. It will make her day!

The customer service is really helpful and top notch. The facility is top notch compared to others we been to. Unfortunately I had to down size and there wasnt any sizes/prices that was appealing at the time. But if they do have any openings I would go back again. Very pleased. Clean and well maintained storage facility with awesome workers. Corina is the front office person that made everything clear and helped with all my questions.
Response from the owner - a year ago
Thank you for the review, Jerico. If you haven't already been placed on the waitlist for the size of unit you're interested in, please let us know. We can let you know when something becomes available.

My father has used this place before and always told me that Corina was the best. I was in need of a storage unit so I went in to see her. Only taking about 15 minutes we picked a unit out for me. She made it super easy and was very helpful. Such a great attitude! Besides that, the place is a little bit more pricey than a public storage. But its worth the extra moolah. Much more secure than those other places. Check this place out if you want a good/nice/secure place to store your belongings.

When my husband accepted a job transfer to the San Jose area, I began my search for a storage facility. The selection of storage facilities was wide and vast in San Jose and pricing very competitive. We selected A-1 for several reasons. The close proximity and access to where we are living and the hours of operation. (This particularly came in handy when our move was delayed and we arrived behind schedule!). We were also very impressed with the cleanliness of the facility. While it is true we are just storing "stuff", who would want their "stuff" being stored at a facility which is outside and could get wet? So, the fact that most of the units are indoors or under awnings is great. (Many facilities we looked at were outside and were not enclosed). The staff is some of the friendliest that I have ever met. They have been very professional and welcoming. If you are looking for a clean, well run, facility with great hours of operation, I would certainly not hesitate in recommending this location of A-1 Self Storage.

I have used A-1 Self Storage on two separate occasions in the past 15 months. I have been very pleased with the service I have received and Corina is always very professional, helpful and pleasant to work with. The location is very convenient for me and I feel completely confident that my belongings are safe and secure at this facility.
