Here are some examples of what our customers have to say about the A-1 Self Storage difference:


A-1 Self Storage | Car Storage:

This review is for A1 Car Storage, at the same location. I've had some work done on the house, and had to make room in the garage, so I had to get my classic convertible out. What a great facility. Right on a quiet stretch of Pacific Highway, with really easy access to the freeway. Immaculately clean, and first class all the way. The car storage area is closed off from the rest of the facility, and is locked and monitored with cameras. This isn't a place you take your clunker, either. Full of high-end classics and contemporary vehicles. The staff was friendly and courteous, and very efficient in helping me get my car in and out. Amazingly, after about two months, there was hardly any dust on the car - stayed really clean. Cleaner than it does in my garage at home. While I much prefer to keep my car at home, if you have to use car storage, this facility and staff can't be beat. - John G.


A-1 Self Storage | Anaheim:

I rented a space from you in December 2001 through today. I usually dealt with Todd at the Anaheim location (3535 W. Ball Rd.) and I wanted to give him a commendation. He was always very helpful whenever I had questions. Please thank him for being so professional and doing a great job! - Don H.

Patricia and her co-worker were very polite and helpful in showing us what was available and best suited for our needs. They explained everything very well to us. I would refer them and your storage facility to anyone I know. Thank You. - Lorie G.


A-1 Self Storage | Belmont:

I have had a storage unit for about 2 years at Belmont and recently rented an additional unit. The good attention I received on my first visit was what convinced me to rent there. The office personnel have consistently been helpful, pleasant, and trust-worthy. -Anastasia M.

Great staff, always helpful and the facilities are excellent. -Bill M.


A-1 Self Storage | Chula Vista:

I would like to extend my sincere appreciation and gratitude towards one of your employees that took the time to understand my situation and compassion to approach his supervisor Mr. Ratliff to assist me with my storage unit. This is the type of customer service that will easily allow me to refer over and over to individuals seeking a full service, high customer service facility. This employee (I only know him by his first name: Jules) is truly an asset to your company. I want to send my most gratuitous thanks and appreciation. I will not hesitate to use or refer this facility to any and all who need. -Jeff M.

I have dealt with Linda at the Chula Vista branch several times. From our first encounter I have been impressed with her friendly and professional manner. She is very encouraging and very understanding. Excellent customer service is hard to find these days, but not with Linda. Thank you Linda. -Wanda A.


A-1 Self Storage | Concord:

I would like to take a moment of your time. The Concord Location is kept clean and organized and most of all a friendly atmosphere. Art and Peggy are a DELIGHTFUL!

They are the type of people that are heavily involve in humanitarian work overseas and as service member serving overseas I can tell you people like T.R. and his wife makes our job in theses countries so much easy. This is the type of business people am proud to do business with they gave so much to society making our word a better place. Thank you!! - Jose S.

Brad is a perfect example of the ideal manager. He is always friendly, understanding, knowledgable, and helpful. I would vote for him as "Employee of the Year."

I will recommend you to all my friends. -Charles G.


A-1 Self Storage | El Cajon Magnolia:

I was a customer at your storage facility in El Cajon on Magnolia Ave for approximately the last eight months. I am writing you this email just to inform you of the exceptional service I received from your two employees Shawn and Grace. These ladies were always more then helpful with any questions or problems I had. They always were quick to follow up and address my needs and seemed to always do it cheerfully with a smile on their faces. Working in the customer industry myself I can tell you how rare it is to find employees with this level of follow up, dedication, and service. The way a customer is treated goes a long way and not only would I rent a unit at your facility again in the future, I will recommend anyone I know who needs a storage unit to see the fine people at A-1 Self Storage in El Cajon. - Andrew W.

Wonderful service. Grace went above and beyond the call of duty for me!! - Michelle F.

A-1 Self Storage | Hotel Circle:

Darlene at the Hotel Circle storage facility is indeed "A1" in my book. She answered all my questions simply and directly, showed us the above unit, sold us a lock and went above and beyond to provide "top notch" customer service. You would do well to make her your Public Relations Director because she is obviously committed to A1 and does an exceptional job making customers feel like part of the A1 family. Thank you Darlene, you are the best! - Spencer P.

I rented a storage space from you and was very happy with it. The staff are friendly and helpful and this is the CLEANEST storage facility I ever saw. The cleanliness is unbelievable -- it's not just that I like a clean place to put my stuff, but also attention to being clean means to me that the staff is paying attention to every aspect of keeping me stuff safe for me. Don't need storage any more at the moment, but based on my experience with your place, A1 Storage will always be my first choice! - Nancy S.

We have worked with Dean for the renting of our first unit, the second and the trading up of the second to a third larger unit. Dean has always been professional and fair in his dealings.

We will be in this facility for several years and would recommend to anyone. -Dale S.

I just want to thank Dean Deralas for making our 3 year stay with A-1 Self-Storage such a great experience. He is one of the best business people I have ever come across. He really cared about us and was always so friendly and extremely helpful. I will recommend A-1 Self Storage to everyone, just because of Dean! Plus, it is such a clean and secure environment. We felt our belongings were in excellent hands. Thank you for everything Dean and A-1 Self Storage! -Valerie T.

You guys have been as solid as a rock. I've been with you for the better part of 20 years (and even before that when I moved home with my family for a short while). I know Karen has moved on, but I have to mention her. She has been so helpful and understanding - as has all of the staff - including the call center. Everyone is courteous and helpful, no matter the need or the issue. I'm leaving the area soon, but I really wanted to take the time to say THANK YOU, ALL of you before I go! - Cheryl H.


A-1 Self Storage | Morena:

I am a returning A1 storage customer. I want to recognize Ray at the San Diego Moreno storage facility. Ray's customer service was outstanding During the time I was filling out the paperwork two customers came into the office on separate business. Ray greeted both customers by name and in such a friendly manner I was blown away. Ray is truly an outstanding director of first impressions. - William B.


I want to recognize Rey, the manager at the Morena Blvd store for his excellent customer service! My daughter's spare locker key was misplaced, and we thought it might have been stolen. Rey was able to put an over lock on our unit. He reassured us that no one would access the storage unit except for those authorized by my daughter. That is fantastic peace of mind for the security of the items we've stored! Especially since we were dealing with the situation from long distance. Rey was cheerful, helpful and reassuring. -Laura

A-1 Self Storage | 3040 Oceanside Blvd:

I've had a large unit at this location since July, 2011. Everyone has always been extremely helpful. When I first arrived looking for a unit, Jim was very helpful in figuring out what size unit would work for me and he made the rental process pleasant and quick. When I was considering moving to a smaller unit, Tracy went out of her way to help me figure out what unit might work and what was available. (I ended up keeping the unit I already had.) When it was time to move out of state this week, Jim was extremely accommodating about allowing me to have relocation containers delivered to the premises so that I could load from my storage unit. He even called to let me know the containers were there! After everything was loaded from my unit, Jim followed up and took care of closing out my rental with no hassles whatsoever. Both Jim and Tracy are exemplary representatives of A-1 Storage and they made my 10 months of storage use a wonderful experience! On another note, the premises at this location are always immaculately clean. There is plentiful parking and room for delivery trucks, etc. Access to my unit was a breeze. Overall, I had such a wonderful experience at the 3040 Oceanside Boulevard location that it began to feel like a second home. I would recommend this location to anyone who needs extra storage! Thank you! - Cheryl T.

I have nothing but good things to say about your crew and how they keep and maintain your facility. David, Jim, and Tracy are all very nice, friendly, and of the utmost professionalism! - Patrick L.

A-1 Self Storage | San Jose Baroni Ave:

Corina is the epitome of what the highest company management would want in a local manager. She is both efficient and her warm smile and focus on the customer marked her as an outstanding public servant! I was also pleased with the polish in which the facility was kept up. -Raymond Ruckle

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!  -Steven Vose

A-1 Self Storage | Torrance:

I had a minor crisis involving a storage issue for my daughter. Both Talia and Ashley from your location at 20704 Earl street were not just accommodating in helping me but had sincere compassion for my situation. There are too many customer service representatives in businesses who just want to get through their day and really could care less about the needs of a client. Please let them know I was truly blessed by meeting them. Bravo to your company for having them for you! Thank you!

-Stephen H.

Thanks to Ashley, what I thought was going to be a "nightmare" of a situation in moving and donating two metal 4-drawer file cabinets to A-1, turned out to be no problem at all! Ashley has a "Nordstrom" type fabulous customer service and a no-problem attitude and wheeled the cabinets off...!THANK YOU! I really like A-1's immaculate with great staff! - Nanci G.
