Storage West?s Spring Valley facility and managers saved my sanity. Some guardian angel was standing over my shoulder when I stumbled onto Storage West?s website and found Michelle and Roger (facility managers). Storage West often offers some great deals (go to their website and look for coupons). They always provide military discounts, sometimes free rent and moving supplies incentives. <br> <br>The Spring Valley Storage West facility is beautifully maintained and extraordinarily well-managed. The wood floor in my unit provides extra insulative and low-moisture benefits. Everything I own is in that unit (family photos, legal documents, heirloom quilts, major appliances). <br> <br>Michelle and Roger are top-notch, seasoned property managers and it shows. The secured facility is open 6:00AM to 9:00PM every day and office is open 9:00AM to 6:00PM Monday?Saturday. <br> <br>Before I chose Storage West, I talked to large apartment complex managers who advertised slightly less monthly storage rates for garages in gated facilities, but they wanted long-term leases and credit reports. I considered the PODS system because (though more expensive than traditional self storage, it seemed convenient to be able to take my time packing and loading their container at my door), but PODS requires you to give 24 hours notice so they can locate your ?POD? and they're only open from 7:30 AM to 3:00 PM five days a week ? closed Sundays and Wednesdays! <br> <br>The traditional self-storage remedy was one I should?ve stuck with from the get-go and there?s no doubt that they?re really on their toes at Storage West in Spring Valley, CA. It was simply extreme good fortune that I found them and their accomplished and professional managers. Until I have a permanent residence, I can sleep a lot better knowing that most of what I own and value is under their roof.
