I've never had a problem with A-1 Self Storage in El Cajon. The staff is always easy to work with and the facilities have always been clean. My wife and I are snowbirds, we move all of our personal belongings into A-1 every spring when we go back to Michigan knowing that everything will be just as we left it in the fall when we come back. Thank you, A-1!!

I originally posted this review about a year ago. This is an update to that review. I recently closed my storage unit as I no longer need it. Patrick and Phyllis have always been helpful. I will rent here again. Great job! (original post) Where do I start? Initially, during my search for storage, off-hours access was critical. The 'other' place's customer service said they had 24 hour access, which was necessary given their proximity to my location and my current transportation. The next day 'they' called and told me their 24 hour access was limited to their larger units outside the gated area. After speaking with Phyllis and Patrick, and mulling over a couple of my other solutions, I am very pleased that I decided to 'sign' with A-1. As it turns out, the convenience (on the way during my morning routine), hours, ease of access(in and out in minutes), even the security access code is easy, not some crazy series of numbers that would be impossible for me to remember. And yesterday I locked my unit open, and Patrick called to let me know Chris found it un-lockable. Fortunately I was on my way back and he didn't need to secure it. We had a couple of laughs about it, but they were great. And the first month was free! A-1 on W. Main is highly recommended! Great work folks!

Patrick & Phyllis are such great people! They NEVER hesitate to help you with ANY questions or concerns you might have. I have been in this unit for over a year now. I love almost everything about it, except one thing... That being... they do raise the rent often!I need to start selling and or tossing out many items, because I need either a smaller and less expensive unit... or I need to move everything out entirely!? I cannot afford the rent hikes. Other than that I don't have any bad remarks.

Patrick, such a fine gentleman. Helped me, went above and beyond to make me feel welcomed, completely thorough, super professional, accommodating and a fine establishment. I would recommend to anyone who needs a clean, secure place to store your items. Thank you and wishing them a happy New Year!
