Meet Your Local Storage Facility: A-1 Self Storage in National City

A-1 Self Storage | December 3, 2018 @ 12:00 AM

Open and ready! You may drive by A-1 Self Storage in National City and wonder if the new construction is complete. Well, no need to question any longer! The ribbon is cut and this pristine new facility is opened for business! Team members tell us customers are already rolling in and renting space - everyone from young families to midshipmen getting ready to deploy. 

Gracelia, Manager at A-1 Self Storage in National City, says the good news is spreading fast throughout town, “We do offer several sizes, and the reason why they are more pleased with our actual storage unit is because of our access times! We have the longest access hours in this area!” Open daily (including holidays) from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. gives people who work full-time plenty of opportunities to come by and access the items they have in storage. Quick deployment orders can sometimes catch supportive families off guard, but no matter the reason A-1 Self Storage National City is here to help. Competitors can’t match the convenience Gracelia and the rest of the A-1 Self Storage team offer. 

Gracelia was happy to give us an overview of all the features and amenities this location has to offer. Built earlier this year, this facility features 1,008 units spread across more than 18,000 square feet. With four floors including the basement, there are hospital-sized elevators to make moving in and out easy, “This is definitely the most modern building on the street!” Gracelia said. 

Drive-up units on the first floor make this facility easily accessible and super convenient for unloading heavy, bulky items, but don’t forget to grab one of the many push carts available to help you! The units at this facility feature high ceilings, making unloading a breeze. “We have several drive-up units, 10’ x 20’ 10’ x 30’ and 10’ x 32.’” Gracelia said. 

While guests can access units simply and easily, top-notch security measures prevent those with ill intentions from gaining access. Video surveillance watches every part of this facility 24-hours a day, 7-days a week. Access is also controlled by a series of keypads and customers use a unique code to enter and exit. Keeping track of everyone on the premises is key to keeping the facility safe. That’s how A-1 Self Storage uses the latest technology to make self storage secure, yet convenient. 

The advantages of renting space in a brand new building are abundant. Cleanliness is pretty much guaranteed, but that doesn’t stop the staff from regularly walking the grounds to assure everything stays up to par. 

Serving long-time residents and newer transplants, including many military families, Gracelia says the facility’s location is a key factor. Apartments and businesses surround the facility, which is right off Mile of Cars Road (named after the many car dealerships within one mile). If deployment has you leaving a vehicle behind, you can easily drive it into storage. 

When we asked Gracelia her favorite thing about this facility, she quickly responded, “Honestly, that it’s located conveniently next to several freeways, if you need to get to anywhere in San Diego you can!” Located just off the 5, your storage unit will be centrally located to all of the area’s major freeways

National City isn’t just where Gracelia works. It’s also her home. After living here for 13 years, Gracelia says there is a lot to like about National City and that the best part of her job is the customer interaction, “Just making the moving process easier for the customer... if we can make it easier paperwork-wise. Everyone comes in stressed and when we offer the rental as easy as possible, they leave a little happier.” 

Happiness is in the eye of the beholder! It’s clear A-1 Self Storage in National City, CA is the place to keep your things safe, secure, and available at a moment’s notice. If you are looking to store your belongings in the San Diego area with a team that will go above and beyond to ensure your satisfaction, look no further!
