Storage Customer Reviews

The facility is clean and organized with what appears to be very good security. Although, as good as the facility is know that the personnel I interacted with were even better. They were expedient, professional, and made the process of becoming a new customer easy. And it took less time than I had expected. Thank you Kaela and Justin. I endorse and recommend A-1 Self Storage.

This group was fantastic! While I was still in Maryland my worldly goods arrived in San Diego (on Mothers Day Sunday no less)....they helped me arrange everything from reserving a storage room to allowing the movers access to unload and store my things!! I worked mostly with Kaela who was fabulous, but the whole group actually worked as a great team and was always kind and considerate of all the issues that cropped up. Wonderful experience!! Highly recommend!!

As I have frequently needed a storage unit near one of the operational bases I have been transferred to for work in the last five years or so, I have become particularly impressed with the customer service received by the people working at this location! One aspect of their otherwise impeccable professional help has been their natural willingness to listen to customer's special request and to act upon it in such a way as to find a solution. Thank you so much, guys!

This facility was extraordinarily accommodating. Our plans changed causing a delay in our storage needs. They graciously extended the reservation to match our needs. Every conversation and every email was handled with friendly yet professional communication. I dealt with three different agents and all of them were kind, informative and professional. Great place and I was totally comfortable dropping all three of my vehicles there for the next 5 months

I am giving two stars since the facilities are very nice. It is aways clean and there is plenty of light. Their hours are very nice as well. My issue was we had a 6x10 unit and it was not 6x10. It was more 4.5x9. The length was exactly 9 and the width was 4.5 since there was a beam preventing you from going directly against the wall. Even without the bean it was 5.5. Then raising prices after a few months made it worse. I switched to another company and even those the place is as nice and pretty as A1, I am paying $8 less for a 10x10 space that is actually 10x10.

Emma made a relatively mundane process very enjoyable. She was very prompt in returning my calls when I initially contacted them. She was very professional and went out of her way to ensure that I was satisfied. Great job! I will definitely be recommending your business to my colleagues. Thanks again Emma for a truly enjoyable experience.

Good facility, things are kept dry and environmentally controlled. The security is also pretty tight. However, the monthly rent keeps going up, around once a quarter. Also, with one really tight exception, all of the controls for the access gates (both entering and exiting) are not accessible from your car, so you have to get out to open the gate, which is not fun if you're in a hurry.

This place is terrible... the bathroom in the loading dock is usually broken in some way. Soap dispenser, No TP, and full of etched graffiti. There is often drug paraphernalia in the trash can, and, as another resident has stated, there are homeless drug addicts living out of many of the units. It often smells like urine in various parts of the building including the elevator. A1 installed some sort of baby powder smell emitting unit in the elevator. Probably to cover the pee smell. Sometimes the homeless come and go in groups of four or five. This is a huge concern when loading and unloading your things as well as a personal safety issue. My girlfriend doesn't feel comfortable going there alone which is really a shame. The last 5 years my rent has gone up roughly 30%. They do make you buy their expensive locks (2X the cost of a good padlock). They also charge me $10 a month for insurance which is ridiculous. You can almost get a renter's or homeowner's policy that covers where you live AND your storage for that. Maybe the high premium has something to do with the homeless drug addicts they rent to. Also, not enough carts, so you have to comb the garage of the building in order to find one to move your stuff half the time. We are moving our things to a better location that is also less expensive next month.

It all started ok ,I had rented a place for a year without a problem then I rented another for my mom Then it started going south , I was on the 5th floor and the button for the elevator was broken so I walked down a flight stairs to my place on the 4th floor I walked past on other tenant who proceeded to follow me and a ask me if I " had a problem " why was I walking past his unit ....so I put it off as just another crazy guy ,there are a lot of homeless people renting here . A few months went buy and then my friend who was waiting for me outside the gate got verbally attack buy the same lunatic telling Alex my friend that he was gunna kick his ass .so I just said "he's just crazy " he always has the same clothes on ,blue cap, white shirt jeans and black boots .then you get a rent increase every 3 months...for something . So a few more months went buy and my rent wheat up again so I went on line and got a new place less expensive and moved down to the 4floor .....and that's when all hell broke loose . They hired a new person named Justin and every time I was in my unit he would appear accusing me of sleeping, running my bike , "it's not a chiropractor office " when I was doing sit-ups on the floor So like anyone else who get falsely accused I told him he was wrong and asked who he was in a upset manner .....all the time wondering if he does this to "crazy guy " who is living in his and menacing other tenants ? So Justin like clock work would show up every time I was in my space harassing me ....after renting there 3 plus years ???never missed a payment our did anything wrong like menace tenants . Then I went to the office to complain about "crazy guy" on 9/16 and asked Justin where Emma was and was told she was not there I said cool , so I went to my space to get something's before work my second job and like clock work Justin appear and accused me of sleeping .......so I said I'm not sleeping but he persisted so I got mad at him and asked him "why he's targeting me " which his reply was "I'm only doing my job" so I said ok let's go for a walk and do you job , so I started walking towards "crazy guys " unit because he is always there to ask him his name (because Justin avoids ) and crazy guy LOST HiIS MIND ! Came out of the unit with a bat and knife threatening me pushing me back to my space where he was acting like he was gunna stab my tire on my bike !!!! That's when Justin showed up and I told him "that's the guy " that I was complaining about that's when said he was not gunna call the police I was gunna have too ?!?!? So I promptly called the police and 10 cops showed up but crazy guy ditched , and it seemed like Justin knew him ?!?!? They seem to have a familiarity with each other ?..so after being a loyal customer for three plus years and being menaced buy a lunatic I was givin a eviction order 4 days later !?!? After being victimized I was victimized again buy the establishment....... So if you wanna be treated like a criminal after you have been a victim this is the place for you . They obviously cannot keep it safe and secure ,they raise the rent every three months , and there are no security cameras inside the place . Oh yea I was gunna complain about the last "crazy guy " incedent because he aggressively approached me asking me "what I was doing " while I was in my space ! I think he thinks he works there are he is a stooge for management So I am gunna get the police report and seek counsel I would give it a negative one but I can't . To bad seemed nice at first

A-1 Storage really is "A-1"! First off, staff is very personable, knowledgeable, and helpful. The facility is remarkably clean and easy to navigate from its multiple elevator points of entry. And for me, living in downtown San Diego, it has been very conveniently located. I used it for the storage I needed in a move, and continue there with a small unit to replace the storage I lost in transitioning to a smaller home.

We needed a storage location for one of our cars while we were gone on an extended driving vacation. The A-1 location on PCH was always on our radar as we would travel back and forth to Point Loma from downtown. The customer service person was so personable as he took care of the individual needs of several of us. He assisted us with the completion of the rental documents and described in detail the steps that A-1 would take to store our car, place our cover on it, and start it each month to run it a bit to keep the battery charged. The facility was very clean, well organized, and the professionalism of the staff built that important feeling of trust in us to rent from them. We would highly recommend anyone looking for a storage facility to seriously consider A-1. Dennis

Excellent facility. We had our belongings there for seven years, after relocating to CA from Chicago. We just brought our things home last week, after purchasing our first house. For the entire seven years, we always felt that our things in storage were 100% safe and secure. They were also in perfect condition, as we used a climate controlled unit. We knew we didn't have to worry about them, which gave great peace of mind. And when we would visit the storage unit to collect things, we always felt safe as well. Also, they keep the place very, very clean. No insects or dust. They do raise their rates every year, but I guess any other place would too. They had excellent communications. We were very happy with our experience with them!

This place is a rip off. They force you to buy 11 dollars lock and key that you may never use again because they are not like common lock and keys. I have never seen these lock and keys before. Their admin fees are high. The lady told me over the phone I would get a a 50% discount on first month's rent. By the end of calculating the total I was told I have to pay something close $128 upfront to move into the smallest storage unit which is a 5x5. After I decided not to go ahead with the registration the dude that seems like a cliched salesman took away the admin cost to bring it down to $83. The agent was fake and hurried me into signing up. After he gave me the papers to sign I attempted to read it. Both he and the other lady agent chuckled and said "that's alot to read through" then they said the only important thing I need to know is pay my rent on time. So I didn't read through because he seemed to be in a haste to get me to sign and hand over my credit card. I didn't know I wasn't allowed on the property after 10 pm. I thought as long as I was there after 10 pm I could leave. For instance if you are in a store when it's closed while you are still shopping do you need to discontinue shopping and leave immediately? That was my situation that night after organising my storage I left a little later than ten. The next morning I returned at 6 and sat down in the storage on my phone and unintentionally dozed off. They came to the storage and told me I slept there overnight so I'll be immediately evicted. I moved out the next day to a storage in the heart of downtown where I paid only 15 dollars in admin cost and won't be paying the 70 monthly rent until the first of next month because I got first month free. This place unlike A1 stood by their word for discounts and specials. I tried to get a Refund for my lock and keys and they refused to refund me. I ask about the 83 dollars I paid since I only had storage for a couple of days and they said they can't do anything about it I would have to wait for a call from the manager to see how much I can be refunded. The facility is not that different from other storage facilities. Yes their rent is the average $73 like other places but their associated fees and admin fees are very high. If you wanna save money there are better deals in town. And also do not buy their locks bring your own conventional lock or ask them for something more conventional. Also they lock you out immediately if you violate their terms. I had to call the office to get my stuff out after just less than 24 hours of being evicted. This was my first time using a storage I wasn't trying to sleep in it I did not know about those rules. I was simply storing a few stuff temporarily because I was leaving the country for three months. Therefore they should review their terms for 1st offenses. there are people who are as naive as I am, you don't just kick people out instantly for a small offense such as napping

While I was moving from one place to another, I had to store a car. The rate was reasonable (~$200/mo with a discount on the first month). People were very courteous, friendly and helpful. I never had to access the car while it was stored, so I can't comment on that part of their service. It sounded pretty straight forward. The bill (email) came in about a week before it was due. I recommend this place.

first impression of the place was it was very clean and nice the guy helping us was extremely friendly as well.. but as we continued business we found out they make you use a special lock that you can buy from them for an astronomical fee and were charging us for insurance that we denied an extra $10 a month. there was still hangers and a piece of glass in our unit when we first opened it too. I am not impressed and will never go back and would not recommend anyone use this place Drive the extra 10 minutes and go to a competitor
