I had to find a storage unit in a hurry and as I drive by the A-1 Self Storage in Mission Valley every day, I checked them out on the Internet first. I "chatted" with Lacey who answered all of my questions regarding the size of the unit I needed for the furniture I was going to store. Kayla called within 20 minutes of making my reservation to ask if I had any questions or concerns. When I did visit the facility the next day, Chris was thorough, courteous and professional in helping to get the paperwork done quickly so I could enjoy the remainder of my weekend. Due to unforseen circumstances, I had to cancel my unit the very next day. Once again, Chris took care of my situation quickly and with the same courtesy and professionalism he showed the day before. If I'm ever in need of storage space in the future, I wouldn't go any other place but A-1 Self Storage, Mission Valley!! It's a top-class facility!

Greeted warmly by Shawn and Kristina! Stressful times were eased with their customer appreciation and interaction. Needed quick service and got it with a smile. Shawn really seems to understand how to efficiently execute her job while maintaining a friendly, warm, and professional conversation. I was impressed! I really thought my storage experience was going to be a struggle, but was pleasantly disproved. Your companie's staff and overall commitment to excellence makes the difference. Thank you!

Excellent customer service! Ms. Jessica was very personable and professional. The staff at this facility take the time to ensure that clients get a thorough break down of the storage units respective pricing and they escort you by way of a motorized golf cart. The spaces within looked clean, well maintained and lit. It was also noted that they offer military discounts for rentals beyond the first month.It was a pleasure doing business with them. Thanks again Ms. Jessica and Ms. Shawn. :)

I was very pleased with the service provided when I arrived. I didn't know what size of unit I would need so Shawn kindly drove me around to my different options. She and I were able to figure out and get the best price available for my storage needs. I recommend checking A-1 Self Storage out! Shawn and Kristina in the office are friendly and helpful!

A-1 storage on Alvarado canyon rd in San Diego was the location I chose for storing my belongings this past year. I was more than happy with the customer service I received as well as the cleanliness and security of the facility. The prices are reasonable and they have a wide range of unit sizes I was able to choose from. They offer online payments which made things very convenient when I was away. Ill return if I ever need to store my things again. Thank you guys, walter k

The staff here are WONDERFUL!! So so helpful, excellent communication and follow-up as well as follow-through. This location is only one exit away from SDSU and so convenient. Shawn was so AWESOME! Its my daughters first time away from home in the college dorms in San Diego. I live in Hawaii, and its so stressful trying to figure out how to get her moved from a distance. Shawn made this transition so much less stressful. She was so helpful and empathetic. She said she has a college-aged daughter too and can understand and relate. She went above and beyond in her customer service! Thank you to Shawn and her amazing team there!!

The staff were friendly enough. the first person who helped me gave me the wrong gate code and when I went back to the office the lady seemed less then thrilled to help me. After that it was smooth sailing. The facilities are clean and there was very little noise, The hours to come in and out were somewhat inconvenient though. All in all it wasn't a bad experience though.

Great place for Storage. I'd give 5 stars however, the entrance is difficult to navigate. You need to park on the road as the front office is behind a large gate. Then walk in. That was my only issue! Other than that, things are great. my stuff is stored.

The only reason I didn't give it a 5 was because of the price increase after ONLY 4 MONTHS! The staff was great, gave me plenty of information and the place is open pretty late. Its gated with passcode to get in and out. Area was kept cleaned and somewhat available carts, didn't see very many but there was one available when I needed one so there's that. But HEADS UP, PRICE INCREASE after only a few short months. Move it or lose. it.

Came to get a unit but the staff did not care about helping me, it seemed like they were bored or wanted to leave. Maybe because it was Friday and they wanted to go home already.

Being evicted for the attempt to change my outfit with my unit door down. I was in the unit for less than 5 minutes. I've seen homeless people live in those units and now I am being evicted without even warning! Would never think that could happen to me!!! I called to explain what happened but they didn't care to listen. Besides experiencing extreme embarrassment I have to move out in 10 days. My worst experience, will never recommend a-1 storage to any of my friends or more importantly customers that I've been referring to them in the past. I never complained about their broken lift when I had to carry tons of heavy items up the stairs but now am being a victim of an awful customer service.
