A-1 Self Storage Acquires AAA Storage South Lamar in Austin, TX

News Update Square

AAA Storage South LamarWe are pleased to announce that we have recently acquired AAA Storage South Lamar.

This existing 26,740-square foot self storage facility serves Austin, TX. This was an off-market transaction with the Seller.

Developed in 1975, AAA Storage South Lamar consists of 5 single-story drive-up self storage buildings and approximately 3,186-square feet of retail situated on 1.76 acres. The facility is in an ideal location with excellent visibility on South Lamar Blvd which averages over 33,000 vehicle trips per day.

We are very excited about our first successful acquisition in Austin, TX. And for this location to be our first A-1 Self Storage in Austin is just magnificent. South Lamar, or SoLa, has become one of the most desirable areas to live in all of Austin. It’s young, it’s hip, and the thousands of new residents who have moved into the area agree.

“Due to the proximity to downtown and the thousands of new multi-family units developed nearby, this is an area we want to invest in. In the short term, we will add value through our professional operations, and increase revenue through our revenue management and marketing platforms,” said Brian Caster, President and CEO of A-1 Self Storage. “Long term, we plan to redevelop this site into a state-of-the-art, class A, A-1 Self Storage facility. We are thrilled to expand our reach to customers in Austin, TX and provide them with an excellent self storage experience. With our second location in escrow, we plan to be one of the leading providers of self storage in Austin, so if you have an opportunity for us in that market, please let us know.”

Our newest A-1 Self Storage location is at 1710 South Lamar Blvd., Austin, TX 78704.

A-1 Self Storage is looking throughout California and Texas to purchase raw land, existing facilities, projects in fill-up and projects that are entitled but not built. If you have any of these opportunities, please contact Bryan Underwood via e-mail at bunderwood@castergrp.com or call 800-219-4854 ext. 164.

Student Checklist for Moving Out of Your Summer Storage Unit

Students Moving and Holding Boxes

College_StudentsWith summer getting closer to being over and school starting next month, we thought we would give students some helpful tips on moving out. These are some important things to think about when moving out and into your new place.

  • Make sure to give a 10 day notice. Contact the office to give your vacate date. This will ensure that you are eligible to have your last month pro rated (if you move out mid month for example).
  • Don’t over pay because there are no refunds. Your rent is paid in advanced, so as mentioned in tip #1, by communicating with the office you can save money by having your rent prorated to your move out date.
  • When moving out and into your new place, make sure to keep your boxes after unpacking. They are easy to store and will save you money for next year when you need to move out again for the summer.
  • Keep your lock! This will also save you the money of having to buy a lock when you are ready to store your belongings next summer.
  • Rent a truck or find a friend that has a truck in advance. That way you won’t be scrambling to find a way to move your belongings out of storage on the last day.
