Its all good except for the fact that they raise their prices too much per year. Into thousand 13 I started it $200 a month and Im up to $310 a month and its 2019. VIP storage a quarter-mile north of here has better prices although they do have narrower hours.

This is my first time having to use a storage unit and I was a little nervous about it at first. I spent some time researching where to go and I knew I wanted a location close to where Im living. I called a couple of places and the associates at A-1 promptly returned my call the first time I called and then I called again with another question and they answered right away. I appreciated being able to talk to a person and not a machine. They were also very helpful in setting up my paperwork for the unit and then they gave me a tour and a demonstration on how to use the lock. I got an upstairs unit to save money and I cant believe how easy it is! I just load up my things onto a cart and wheel it into a freight elevator. When I couldnt get my key to work one of the times I called the desk for help and Gary came to help me. So far Ive had a great experience and I would highly recommend it!

I really like this facility and staff. I feel my belongings are safe and secure and staff very aware of surroundings. I'm a lil uneasy with storing my belongings in a storage unit but if I have to, I highly recommend this one.

I have been benefiting from this A-1 Storage for a long time. I've used a couple of competitors in the past but have been genuinely happier with A-1. For one thing, the facility is kept very clean. They obviously put ample effort into maintaining the property. The security is impressive as well. A person needs more than simple access to the property to break into anyone else's unit. The layers of security are comforting. The staff has always been helpful. When there was an issue in my section of the property I was called promptly and informed of the problem. I was headed over to verify the situation was not originating in my unit but they called me back as they found the correct unit and resolved things with that customer. They handled everything quickly and professionally while still being friendly and forthcoming with the important details. The recent update of their website has been a helpful improvement and I've not encountered a single glitch. I encourage you to check out this storage solution.

I used A1 Storage for over a year and was very pleased with the kindness of the office team, as well as the cleanliness of the storage facility. Having the flatbed carts available is also a great benefit. When deciding to move out, I made sure to give one week notification, so I only paid for the few days past my start date not the whole month. Great service. Thank you.

There is nothing wrong with the storage unit, everything was super easy to get in and out of. The only complaint I have is there is no AC (and it gets very hot in there) and there is no light or even an outlet for a light. Other than that, it seems to be safe and well managed.

The below was my original and this is my final review. I like the staff and the facility was clean. Just a pain going up and down the stairs but that is what was available. Also, the price went up within a short time after I got there. I think its a little trick they do to get people to use there units who knows tho Shawn and grace were amazing! They made feel like family and thanked me numerous times for chooseing there storage location. We have been looking for awhile and everwhere else the personnel were not friendly and the places were way of of my budget. Shaen and grace were absolutely great and helped me with everything i needed done and asked all my questions. I havent met a more professional and polite company. We choose the best place. Thank you for everything ladies.

We stored our belongings here at A-1 Storage on Magnolia for 26 months!! Didn't think we'd need it that long, but the office staff was so considerate, professional and helpful. It was nice to know that our "whole house" (which fit into a 10x30) ...was safe and sound!! What was supposed to be a short storage ended up being much longer - life happens: ...between selling and buying, we became caregivers for our parents who were 93 yrs old, living with them and caring for them daily. I'd highly recommend the El Cajon A-1 Self Storage on Magnolia Ave to anyone around who needs to keep their stuff "safe and sound."

Grace and Shawn are, simply put, the most professional moving folks i have dealt with during my entire move process! They helped me think about what i needed before i could wrap my mind around it, and they were very patient and helpful in the signup process. They were a delight to work with and i wish all my "move vendors " were as thoughtful and nice and explained everything the way they did! They really made me feel as if my business was wanted and that is VERY RARE to find these days. thank you so much Grace and Shawn. the facility is very very clean and i feel safe there whenever i go there. it has convenient access to everything you might need (home depot, mall/shopping, etc). Mwaaa!

Grace and Shawn give me hope that great customer service is not dead. I wish I could give them more business because they are a pure pleasure to do business with. They are helpful, attentive and respond quickly to resolve issues. In a world of voice mail menu mazes these ladies are a breath of fresh air. You can have complete confidence with these gals who have been operating this facility for many years. You won't be dealing with a novice at this location which unfortunately I find in too many operations. Yes, I'm a demanding consumer so my positive reviews don't come easily. I have had two separate contracts here and ZERO PROBLEMS. These ladies deserve the highest praise!!! On a side note, I had a contract with Public Storage in the Bronx and it was a total nightmare. My stuff was ruined.... See my complete review on Yelp.

For all New customers of A1 Self-Storage. I moved into the Magnolia location on 01-16-2014. But before I chose A1 I shopped around for the best deal I found 2 places that were a few dollars cheaper but this location was perfect for my needs, Grace and Shawn were there on my first day they had some questions about the contents, you know checking for flammable type stuff I told I was a collector of comic books and I was very concerned about water leaks and bugs and theft Shawn was very informative about the location and how well the property was kept up and the alarm system, basically she alleviated all my fears we did an extensive walk through of different units that might suit my needs they were both very patient and understanding, I not exactly happy with the 2 or 3 rate increases i have had in the short time I have been there but to tell the truth Shawn and Grace are not all stuffy and straight lace business type I found at other storage places they made me feel at home and comfortable to leave my thousands of dollars worth for comics the. Because of my rate increases I want to leave but every month I go pay my bill either one of the 2 ladies give a reason to stay and do there best to justify the increases. The day Shawn and Grace leave this location so do I,

It was a great experience. Easy in and easy out. And online payments was very convenient. The only reason it was not 5 star is because the rent went up a little. However, I was given notice of the price change. I appreciated the helpful and friendly staff (Shawn & Grace).

I am completely satisfied with my experience with A1 Self Storage. I made the mistake of reserving a storage space that was entirely too small for all my stuff. Grace saved me time and money and quickly upgraded me into a larger space. She got me into a space that was close to the first space and turned a potentially long bad day into a great customer service experience.

I got a unit with Grace today. I was feeling pretty down about my living situation and having to put my belongings in storage but Grace made all the difference and cheered me up with her positive attitude and passion about what she does. This was my first storage renting experience and I am very thankful I got 5 star service from A-1

My husband and I went to A-1 Storage the week of the 4th of July to rent a unit and both Shawn and Grace were there to help. They were so professional and answered all our questions. Shawn and Grace really made the experience enjoyable and I would definitely recommend A-1 Storage to anyone looking for a storage facility.
