Dillingham Self Storage COVID Guidelines

Dillingham Self Storage has felt the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. We hope that everyone is staying safe and healthy during this time of uncertainty. Governor David Ige recently declared another state wide shutdown of non-essential businesses. Thankfully, we are considered an essential business because we serve as storage units for medical supplies. We also provide necessary supplies for essential businesses to stay running. Hence, we are still open for business. However, we have taken some precautions to keep our staff and tenants safe from the COVID-19. 

This is a reminder of our operating restrictions under COVID. We have had these in place since March. We are taking this pandemic seriously and want our tenants to know that we are operating under strict guidelines to maintain everyone’s safety. Our new temporary office hours are Monday-Friday 10-6pm, Saturdays 12pm-5pm and still closed on Sundays. While the office is closed, the restroom in the facility will remain locked. Tenants coming in to visit their unit after office hours will not have access to this restroom. Access hours to the storage units in the facility are the same, 7 days a week from 6am to 9pm. 

We have also made some changes to our operations in the front office for the time being. The computers in the front office are no longer available for use by tenants. We have closed those for the time being. We are also taking extra precautions in sanitizing high-traffic surfaces around the facility such as door handles, elevator buttons, counters and keypads. We are also enforcing social distancing by limiting the number of customers in the office to a maximum of two. There are instructed lines taped on the ground outside the office to maintain the recommended 6’ social distance outside of the facility for those who are waiting to enter. And last but not least, face masks are required at all times! 

Our payment system has remained the same for tenants. Tenants can pay online or in person. However, we encourage everyone to pay online if possible. However, we will still accept payment in person. We can also accept payment over the phone by debit/credit card.

Self Storage for Working from Home

Self storage has been a hot commodity during this new wave of Working From Home (WFH.) More people in their homes means they have time to recognize all the things they have laying around! Some have gotten a storage unit for the time being just to make more room in the home in order to comfortably set up their working unit. If you’re interested to see how we’re responding to the pandemic, check out our other blog post on our new cleaning regime in place. 

Working from Home

While working from home, it’s difficult but important to keep things separated from home life and work life. Jane has been a tenant with us since last year and she had a storage unit with her mom just to hold household items. She works for the City & County of Honolulu, who currently have no date to return to the office and are working from home full time at the moment. The uncertainty of returning to the office convinced her to make a comfortable and permanent work space from home. As a result, she signed up for another unit with us! She has a unit with us to store household items and free up space for an office at home. We thought this was a great idea and an easier way to keep things separated. It’s important to make room for a home office, and we love Jane’s creative idea! Self storage units are in such high demand right now that Jane picked up the last unit we had!

Dillingham Self Storage Has Demand for Smaller Units

Dillingham Self Storage has seen big changes in the world in recent times. With Hawai’i still under partial lockdown, we are maintaining our strict cleaning regime and regulations. We are limiting the number of people in the lobby at one time and have certain public areas completely closed off. The bathrooms and the computers in the lobby are unavailable for public use. We are still waiving all late fees for rent that is not paid on time. If tenants are unable to make payments on time, please give us a call and keep us informed. We like to maintain open communication with our storage tenants. 

Downsizing Units for Tenants

Recently, we have seen some moving around within our facility as some tenants prefer to size down. Now that many people are at home and have spare time, they are able to clean out their storage units and really make the most of their time. We have seen many tenants request to downsize from their current unit. We are hoping to move these tenants down from their larger units into smaller, more affordable units as much as possible.
