The owner is the sweetest!

Robert (the owner of the facility) is the sweetest and most helpful person I have ever had the pleasure of working with. The price of the unit is pretty good. The owners trustworthiness is what makes the price really worth it. Clean facility, great service, fair price. It doesn't get better.

Recommended: Yes

Darren May 20, 2015

Good customer service; very neat and functional, if dated

Excellent help and enrollment at the counter. Very easy setup. Fully paved facility was very organized and free of clutter, with a good high fence and barbed wire. Easy access. Older facility with plenty of dents and the like, but to be expected, and no compromise to stored items.

Recommended: Yes

An answer to prayer.

Good day all! I am power of attorney for a neighbor with severe health issues which precipitated her moving suddenly and permanently. As a student, time for me is extremely structured and commandeered by school. Robert W. Beddard - A-1 Manager, facilitated I and my neighbors needs most cordially, and competently. He even put me in touch with a mover who was most courteous, efficient and affordable. Kudos to church member volunteers who made matters all the more easy. When I move, hopefully soon; I too shall engage the same services as my neighbor received.

Recommended: Yes

Manager is very friendly

The Manager of A-1 Storage in W-S was very friendly and made me feel welcome to his facility. He is very conversational and does a great deal to satisfy his customers and make sure their experience is memorable and positive. He sweeped out my unit for me on the spot and gave me some plastic covering free of charge. Thank you southern hospitality.
