Meet Your Local Storage Facility: A-1 Self Storage in El Monte, CA

A-1 Self Storage | July 5, 2018 @ 12:00 AM

Most people choose A-1 Self Storage in El Monte, CA because of the excellent customer service, convenient location, and stellar security features. Others stop by just for the coffee! 

Okay, so maybe they don’t come to this location JUST for the coffee, but the team has been told their coffee is awesome! Today, we’re going to take a closer look at this stunning facility and all of its features with the help of A-1 Self Storage’s own sales associate, Maritza. This facility has 823 units, so you can bet there is plenty to talk about!

Starting off at the office, which offers ample customer and visitor parking, this facility features modern architecture, clean lines, and is topped with terracotta roof tiles that help the building match the neighborhood’s aesthetic. During most of the year, customers are greeted at the front door by beautiful, blooming red rose bushes. 

Inside, Maritza describes the office as being a “one stop shop” for everything storage. You can make a rent payment, use the spotless restroom, and even get all of your moving supplies. 

“We sell everything related to packing supplies. We have plastic covers for mattresses, sofas, tables, anything. We have ropes, markers, tape-guns, utility cutters, straps, and shrink wrap,” Maritza said. “We even have blankets to protect the furniture and plastic packets to protect dinner-wear. Of course, we also have many different sizes of boxes. We also always have a deal on boxes: The Savers Pack is $18.99 for 7 boxes and a roll of tape; The Economy Pack $28.99 with 11 boxes; and The Deluxe Pack for $49.99 with 16 boxes. They save a lot of money, and if they buy more than 10 boxes they get 25% off and they can mix and match the box sizes. We also offer bubble wrap for inside of the boxes!”

There is even a small office area with seating just in case you need to check your phone, or are waiting to speak to a self storage professional. Access hours at the facility are from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. and the facility is only closed on select holidays, “There are just seven holidays that we are closed on: Christmas Day, New Year’s Day, Easter, Fourth of July, Thanksgiving, Labor Day, and Memorial Day. Other than that, we are open all of the time.”

While convenient hours are definitely a plus, Maritza says that location is also a big benefit, “We are very close to the freeway. We get a lot of customers from different areas because of that. Especially business people, because they can stop by quickly, get their things, and leave.”

Couple all of those amenities with numerous units featuring drive-up access, and it’s easy to see why almost 30% of of the customers at this facility are businesses. If there aren’t any drive-up units available, there are plenty of other easy-to-access units spread across six different buildings. 

“Three of those buildings have two levels. Two of those buildings have cargo elevators that you can use to transport your items,” Maritza said. 

Surrounding this self storage facility is a fence with an electronic gate that can only be accessed by typing a unique code into the keypad. This allows the front office to know exactly who is coming and going, alongside other security measures. 

“We have video surveillance and we require disc locks to secure the units,” Maritza said. “It’s pretty safe.”
