We are proud to announce that we’ve started construction on a 96,236 square foot A-1 Self Storage Facility in the Imperial Beach community located at 845 Hollister Street, San Diego, CA. This new location is scheduled to open in December of 2016.

The addition of this A-1 Self Storage location will help to meet the storage needs of the Imperial Beach community and its neighbors. Customers will be able to rent a unit using our state-of-the-art online rental platform, or visit the office 7 days a week. With some of the longest access hours in the area, customers will be able to access their storage units from 6am – 10pm every day. A-1 Self Storage makes renting a storage unit convenient.

“We look forward to opening our newest A-1 Self Storage location in Imperial Beach, making it our nineteenth store in the San Diego market,” said Brian Caster, President and CEO of A-1 Self Storage. “Given its prime location off Palm Avenue, this property possesses great potential.”

A-1 Self Storage is the self storage division of the Caster Group, a third generation family owned company headquartered in San Diego, California serving local communities since 1959.  The Caster Group 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 or call 800-219-4854 ext. 164.
