quick and efficent with no drama
The manager of t his facility got us checked in with the minimum of drama and set up with our storage space so we could get our stuff moved in without problems. The fast and friendly service was extremely welcome at the end of a fairly stressful day. We would be happy to recommend this facility to anyone.

This spot is a great deal for storage. The security that they have is good, whenever the facility is open there is a real, live person on duty. The price is right too and Paul provided great customer service. I would recommend this spot for storage.

Great experience
We used Sparefoot to find A1 storage which was conveniently located for us to move some of our extra stuff from our place in Queen Anne. The service was great and we were able to move our stuff in quickly thanks to the moving equipment and large elevator. I would definitely recommend this location to anyone looking for an affordable and easy storage unit in Seattle!

I use A1 to store equipment for the soccer club my kids play for in Seattle. Every time I stop Paul and/or Richard are extremely helpful. I was so impressed that I ended up renting space for my own use. Paul was right there to help me select the size and location. Paperwork was a breeze.

Super Friendly Staff, Great Value
The people who run the storage facility are incredibly helpful, and the value is incredible, especially if you can get a unit that has the second month free. I just wish that the facility stayed open a bit later during the day and on weekends. Otherwise, the managers are great, the paperwork is kept down to a minimum, and the location is pretty easy to access.

Cheap! Cheap!! Cheap!!!
Good thing: It is cheap. The cheapest Bad thing: This place was built on 1907 or something like that. It has an elevator that I only have seen those kinds in the horror movies. First thing that came to mind was wishing that this building do not collapse, so that I don't loss my items. Even if I hear about the news of collapse of this building, I won't be too surprised.

Manager's Response August 3rd, 2015
Thanks for recognizing our low rates. The A-1 Self Storage building, built around 1914, was originally an ice manufacturing facility. We purchased the building in 1976 and compiled with all City of Seattle Building Department requirements for its conversion into one of the first self storage facilities in Seattle. In 1980 an annex was added increasing the size of the building by approximately 50%. If you choose our vintage freight elevator, do so knowing the mechanics were fully rebuilt in 2002 and are professionally maintained and city inspected regularly. Over 90% of our units are assessable without our elevator. The third floor units are accessible by a rear street ramp. The second floor units are accessible by ground level access from the higher rear street. The building has weathered all previous earthquakes quite well.

Older building, units are big (8 feet high) so there is a lot of space with a smaller unit. Overall happy with the place.

The units are divided up with plywood, and while I feel my belongings are secure I wouldn't put any expensive belongings in the unit without a little worry. The price is fair, and the hours are very reasonable. And additionally there is an elevator so no worries if you get stuck on the second or third floors.

Thanks for your positive comments. A-1 Self Storage offers the best deal in Seattle for in-city storage. Our facility has provided safe storage for thousands of clients for nearly 40 years. For security we have surveillance cameras, monitored alarms, and our facility manager. Storage insurance is available. All second & third floor units are accessible from the loading alley at the rear of the building, as well as by elevator.

cheap but rickety old storage unit
I had little money for a storage unit a couple months ago so I found A-1 to be my best deal in town($65). Compared to other storage spaces I've looked at A-1 is dim, old and absolutely freezing cold. Very little light in the hallways and a rickety old unit door that need to be kicked hard to fit back in place. The unit itself is fine. It gets the job done. Staff is helpful, if a little overly animated, telling numerous off-color jokes and random stories during the paperwork process.

We are glad you found A-1 Self Storage to be the best deal in town! Yes, our facility is unheated and vintage; it has provided storage for thousands of clients for nearly 40 years. For security, we have surveillance cameras, monitored alarms, and our facility manager. To conserve energy some lights are off. They do have pull cord switches, so feel free to turn more lights on. Although the lack of heat means you should bring your jacket in the winter, stored items have not been affected because the building is insulated and ventilated. If your door is an issue, we can find you a different unit, or repair your door. Thank you for the appreciation of our staff. We work hard to make your experience positive!

The lockers are wooden and it's dark, but for the price you can't go wrong. Depending on the location of your storage locker, it can be a hassle to get to.

Thanks for complimenting our customer service - we work hard at that. Sorry you found the facility a bit dark. To conserve energy many of our lights are not on all the time. These lights have manual pull cords to turn them on and off. Getting to your locker is made easier by using one of multiple entrances. Streets on each side of the building make three floors accessible without needing an elevator or stairs. There is parking near all entrances and most lockers are nearby. Alternatively, all lockers can be accessed by elevator. Surveillance cameras, monitored alarms and on-site managers have provided security for thousands of customers (and repeat-customers) since 1977.

The storage lockers are wodden and easy to break into. The stair are WAY too steep, the freight elevator is run down and navigating around the facility is VERY difficult. It's like a haunted house maze. It gives me the creeps to come here and refuse to go alone.

Very old building. Floors unevening, makes moving harder. Wooden doors which can be easily broken into... Elevator not safe, old and hard to use. Not enough ground units, had to get 3rd floor, logistics of the building costs us extra time. Would not recommend for others.

Our remodeled, City of Seattle Building Department approved, older facility has provided low cost storage for thousands of clients. Streets on each side make our three floors accessible without needing an elevator or stairs. There is parking near all entrances and most lockers are nearby. If you choose our vintage freight elevator, do so knowing the mechanics were fully rebuilt in 2002 and are professionally maintained and city inspected regularly. The customer must open and close the metal mesh elevator door gates. We take security seriously. Surveillance cameras, monitored alarms and on-site managers have provided security for thousands of customers (and repeat-customers) since 1977. Our building is almost full, meaning sometimes all we have available is a third floor unit, accessible by rear street ramp, stairs or the elevator. The second floor units are accessible by ground level access, stairs or the elevator. The first floor units are the most direct without needing stairs or the elevator. Using the elevator for one more floor to get to the 3rd floor has not been a time delay problem for anyone else. If quickness of your move-in is your only concern, and all we have in your desired size is a third floor unit, then this review by Maria may be helpful to you.
