With self storage facilities in California, Hawaii, Missouri, and Nevada, we are looked upon as industry leaders. Yet A-American remains a family company with strong roots in the communities it serves. This combination gives us a vital advantage in the world of storage units.

We take tremendous pride in our place in entrepreneurial history, as one of the first self storage companies. But we're not content to stand on our laurels. We offer the best, most innovative storage units on the market.

Great service! The guy at the front desk was professional and showed us a few different storages

Recommended: Yes

David Apr 29, 2017

It does what it says on the box: store your stuff here.

People are so friendly it's almost unreasonable. Guess I've been in San Diego too long since friendly people surprise me this much. Rates are lower than advertised, at least initially. Maybe I just missed something, but I'm not about to complain. Storage space was clean and easily accessed. My possessions fit with ample room to spare.

Recommended: Yes

Heather Oct 21, 2016

Fast, Easy and Respectful

The process was very easy and fast. I reserved it online and within an hour I left the place with new storage key in hand.

Recommended: Yes

Eric Aug 11, 2016

Looks like it's going to work

Good price. Relatively convenient location. Size we needed. Best thing is the extra gates that allow moving vans to enter easily.

Recommended: Yes

Ringo Jun 14, 2016

Friendly and helpful staff who are willing to work with you.

Great staff who went out of their way to get me set up with everything I needed without anything unnecessary that just adds extra costs and higher rent. Necessary aspects like security are not compromised by a more reasonable rent so if they are farther than other storage units, they aren't too far to still save you money in the long run.

Recommended: Yes

Molli Apr 24, 2016

The service and sign up was very professional, friendly and efficient.

Our storage unit has been easy to access and the storage property seems quiet and friendly. I was very impressed with the gentleman who rented the unit to us. He was friendly, but very professional and efficient. We had to get the unit at the last minute on a Saturday during our move and I was very pleased at how quickly and easy getting the unit was. Overall it has been a very good experience and we are very happy.

Very Patient and Friendly

I had a great experience with this family owned storage. They were very polite, patient and friendly. The truck driver/owner was patient with us loading the truck and let us go past the time allotted to load. Very respectful business.

They rock!

A-Amercian Self Storage at 1151 Greenfield Drive in El Cajon is a wonderful facility! The management go out of their way to be kind and patient (moving is stressful!) and helpful. I will recommend them from hereon out!

Recommended: Yes

Coleen Aug 16, 2015

Very friendly staff and very clean.

I looked at several storage spaces and went with A-American in El Cajon first because of the price. Once I ssw the facility I felt very comfortable storing my belongings there. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Also the unit/area was very clean.

Recommended: Yes

Teresa Jul 18, 2015

I think the hours that you have access are bad. Since most people work until 5, being open only until 6 doesn't give you much time if you need to do things in your storage. And people that work full time don't want to spend their weekends messing with storage.

Recommended: Yes

Theodore Jul 11, 2015

Good cheap storage..

I rent a smaller unit there, the price is very good.

Recommended: Yes

Sean Jul 09, 2015

Hidden fees

So I was told when I came through even though I have renters insurance that exceeds the requirement of A1, I still have to buy renters insurance through them, an extra $10 per month. Then you have to get locks that they approve of. I'm only here temporarily, but something doesn't quite add up.

Recommended: Yes

Recommended: Yes

Tracey Apr 05, 2015

A very quick, painless and pleasant check-in experience

The clerk was very thorough and courteous, explained everything in detail and answered all of our questions to full satisfaction. The facility appears to be very secure - I especially appreciate that someone lives on-site. All in all, this is the best facility we've ever rented from, and we've used a few!

Recommended: Yes

Priced very reasonably, very good customer service, very clean.

I saved 50% on my storage bill by moving and I am glad I did. Now everything is locked up and I don't have to give it a second thought.

Nancy C Mason Jan 28, 2014

Typed in storage santee and spare foot came in with this location on list

The picture caught my eye, then the ad was to good to pass up all the way around. Location, move-in special, easy access to the unit, cleanliness, everything about it got my vote. Then once there to check in, the two running the place were awesome! In and out in minutes, seen the unit, and was off to pack the truck. It was everything the ad said and handled very professionally . I was very happy! This place gets my vote for sure!!

Easy access, very efficient staff, clean and secure facility, storage rooms with easy access and wide entry, very clean, can park and unload directly in front if roll up access doors.

Recommended: Yes

Rita Apr 23, 2013

Very nice and friendly & gave meagood deal.

They not longer had trucks, per the ad, so they gave me a deal on the next month's rent instead. I thought that was great. The reason I gave a 3 on cleanliness was because of the oil spill on the unit's floor. Other than that, the premise was clean.

Recommended: Yes
