I get a lot of commercial customers because of this, especially with the drive-up units,” David said. “We get anything from gardeners, to large businesses that keep non-perishable items close at hand.”

customers enjoy great access hours at this A-1 Self Storage facility that go from 6:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m., 365 days a year. While 24-hour access is not permitted for everyday use, David works with businesses and residents with special circumstances.

Even though the neighborhood is generally quiet and unassuming, we always equip our A-1 Self Storage facilities with fantastic security features that help ensure the safety of our customer's belongings. 

“The entrance and exit both require an access code. The access code is unique to each customer, and we have a system that keeps track of everyone’s comings and goings. We have 14 surveillance cameras that are recording 24/7. We have nice bright floodlights, so it's easy to see at night. Almost all our units have an individual alarm as well,” David said.

All these features are fantastic for giving customers peace of mind. However, having a caring and watchful community of renters is a priceless feature and is something that has grown at this facility over the years. 

“We do have great people who rent here. It is almost like a little town that you get to know everybody in,” David said with pride. “I have a few people that come almost every single day, and they are the type of people that if they see something weird or out of place they will say something, so our renters are almost another security feature.”

In a truly, “but wait, there’s more!” moment, David added that he also lives only 10 minutes away from the facility and is ready and able to be at the facility in case of an emergency.
