First of all, you can't beat the online pricing. I did some comparison pricing bur seems to me, their pricing is overall very reasonable. I like how you can book online and then work directly with the local office. The staff is friendly, willing to work with you and professional. I really appreciate how clean and tidy the facilities are. This includes each individual unit, as well as the public areas of the entire facility.. The security there is also streamline and reassuring. Thank you.

I was helped right when the store was about to close and the level of professionalism and level customer service I received was impeccable even though they were about to close in 15 to 20 minutes. I was in need of using the storage unit that night and A-1 Self Storage help make that happen. Now I am able to get all of my items I need in storage without having to worry about getting a unit for moving this weekend. Thank you very much for your help. It is much appreciated!

The High St location is safe, clean, and has a friendly, helpful staff. i never felt insecure asking a question, and they didn't try to upsell space i didn't need. I felt like my stuff was completely secure, and i never felt unsafe going there. Bonus, they had flatbed carts available to help with unloading my car! highly recommended. Our stay was short, ( we were remodeling) , but if i need storage again i will go there in a heartbeat.

Excellent, detailed service on the phone when I called in to ask about what was available. Codey spelled out very carefully what size units were available, and on what floors. When we arrived, we were escorted to the different units. He explained the rates for the units and they were very professional. We had looked at two other Self Storage businesses in the area. This was the best one.

I have quite a few grievances with this storage facility but I'll begin with my a safety concern I had after seeing a car permanently parked inside the storage unit. I asked if overnight parking was allowed inside the premises and the front desk got confrontational with me and said they are well aware of the parked car. They said that in fact they have a family living in the storage unit. I am not well versed on zoning or permit laws for storage units but I did say that information is best to be shared with future renters of STORAGE SPACES. Today at around 1:30 I went back to my storage unit and then inside the office to use the "Customer Business Center" they have. In fact I was told by a different front desk that this is not an actual customer business center and referred me to "the starbucks down the street" as I asked her for more direction to get to the starbucks she got defensive and told me to google it. She then proceeded to tell me that "she heard I was asking about the people who live in the unit" and that it was her living in the unit. Like I said I dont know much about apartment permits and laws but this attitude of hers was completely unprofessional. She even had the nerve to tell me to go back to Los Angeles as if this was her house I was intruding in.

Would recommend them highly over Extra Space who are bandits! they send you a letter 3 days after you move in saying they are raising your rent next month! Great location, access and very clean facility. Keep up the good work.

A-1 is the only storage facility we use. We keep coming back because of the friendly staff that both Maribel and Marisol show us. The facility is spotless, secure, and easy to access our storage with ease. They're extended hours allow us flexibility when comparing to other storage facilities. I have recommended family and friends and will return for our storage needs in the future. I would recommend A-1 if cost, safety, and peace of mind are important to you.

This place will get you for every penny they can. Your bill escalates so read the fine print. When it was time to cancel, they told me they don't do refunds, even though my auto payment had just come out. Girl at the front desk said they require a 10 day cancellation notice. I told her I would like to do that, and get a refund for the remainder of the month, but she said they don't do refunds. When I asked why the 10 day cancellation policy if no refunds, she refused to answer. She gave me Allen McCarthy's phone number and he never returned my call. Basically, they stole 20 days rent from me, and they do this to customers all the time. The Bridge Storage is right down the street. I have used them with my parents before, and they are a MUCH better option than this place. THIEVES!

My experiences have been nothing but positive while dealing with Maribel and Anna. Whether over the phone or at the facility, they are professional, courteous and on point with their service delivery. Where one leaves off (out of the office), the other picks up, without skipping a beat; from initial (no charge) on hold/reservation to finalization/contract signing, everything went smoothly. Their facilities are clean, secure and each unit is alarmed. This facility, which has entrance and exit gates at opposite sides of the property can accommodate large moving trucks. This is an important question to ask as not all storage facilities can handle oversize trucks.

I started my search for storage by using online reviews. With a little leverage on locations, I soon found my attention drawn to A-1 Storage High Street. I asked for a space quote online, and found it reasonable. I went into the location the next day with a packed van, and 10 minutes later was moving in my stuff, with size and price exactly as indicated. The team is always super pleasant, the space remarkably clean, and the access entirely satisfactory. I've even walked from Fruitvale BART from time to time and found it accessible. The fun music had me dancing on occasion, and I'm hoping the security cameras didn't catch that part :-) Moving out, when the time came, was also as simple and transparent as could be hoped-for. I will definitely be doing business with these fine folks again--I just wish they'd go national.

I have been a customer at this storage facility for years unfortunately, and I recently had a terrible experience with them. They increased my rent on a unit that was $362, for a 20 x 10 ( not cheap to begin with ! ) to $385. without writing me and giving me any notification of this, and even when I paid over the phone with the head Manager she did not bother to mention to me that my rent was increased by $23. /month. REALLY NOT COOL and they have made plenty of money off me and I have only been late with a payment maybe twice in 5 yrs.

Not the cheapest of all storage facilities but they will try to work with you as best they can. It is indoor and very clean. Moving back to the Bay Area from the east coast my fianc and I needed to find a place quick for our things since he will be deploying soon. The girls here for us in and showed us some options before we rented out anything and made sure we got everything we needed before we left. I appreciate the customer service that is provided here 100%!!!
