Transparent Pricing. The Way We Do Business.

November 2017

 

Everyone wants the best storage unit prices at a convenient location near them. It’s only natural.


Still, it’s important to do some research before you make that first payment on your rental unit. Storage facilities in West Texas and in particular, Lubbock, have become more competitive over the years and it’s not uncommon to see offers for free storage. While these kinds of offers are enticing, be careful to take a closer look and ensure you’re getting the best possible price.


Some storage facilities in Lubbock offer an initial low rate, but quickly raise the rent after a few months. Other facilities in Lubbock charge you an administration fee and require that you buy insurance, even if you don’t need it! I once heard an owner say these kinds of fees let him remake his money on the "back-end of the deal." That's just not fair.  


Fortunately, more people in Lubbock are learning about these tactics and demanding a more transparent pricing model. Storage facilities that offer transparent pricing, like All American Storage,  guarantee that the price you see online or hear over the phone is the price you pay, no exceptions.  So take advantage of these great storage offers, but make sure you know what you are getting before you sign that rental contract.  

 

So before you rent:

1.  Make a call or go by the storage facility and ask what your rent will be a few months after you move in.  Do the offer any price guarantees?

2.  Ask about any adminisrative fees.  Some facilities charge these fees upfront.  It's the price you pay them to set up your account.  

3. Does the facility charge a deposit,  and if they do, is it fully refundable?

4. If they offer the use of a FREE truck, is a deposit required on the truck and will there be any associated fees like gas or mileage?



The Confusion Over Renting Self Storage Online Verses Making a Reservation

November 2017

 

Many storage facilities offer what appears to be online renting when actually they are just offering to make you a reservation to rent a space.  When you click on the “Rent Now” button on the All American Storage website, you’re doing more than just making a reservation, you’re actually renting a storage space in real time.  Our website will walk you through the simple process of choosing your space, seeing the price and lastly filling out an online contract.  It only takes a few minutes, and when you’re done, you’ll be given a private gate code and immediate access to you space.  This all happens from the privacy of your own home using your personal computer or smart phone.  There’s no need to spend additional time waiting for our office to open to rent your storage space.  Of course, we’re always happy to see you to answer any questions you may have.  We love to see all our customers whether they rent in person or online.

Sometimes, even Santa needs a little help.

December 4, 2017

 

As a longtime Lubbock resident with children, I know how difficult it is to keep Christmas gifts from prying eyes. It’s a predictable cycle: You do your best to hide “Santa’s” gifts somewhere in the house and curious children often find them. In fact, surveys show that at least 2/3 of children try to find their gifts before Christmas. And can you blame them? I know I did the same when I was a kid!

 

 

Thankfully, self-storage can help. Instead of hiding Christmas presents at home only to have them discovered by Santa’s little helpers, why not keep your Christmas gifts in a storage space? All American storage in Lubbock offer affordable, closet-size spaces that are a perfect place for hiding gifts. Imagine: a perfect hiding place for all your Christmas gifts that also doubles as a closet for your holiday decorations. It doesn’t get much more convenient (or sneaky) than that!
