Storage Units for Businesses

We love working with our business customers. Businesses are always in need of storage units, especially when they are looking to expand operations. Monthly storage units can be incredibly cost-effective compared to renting retail space. Storage is also great for reserving supplies and inventory that do not need to be customer front-facing. Our units also offer great security benefits that sometimes exceed those of common retail spaces. For example, we have security cameras in addition to numerous security checkpoints to enter your unit. This is far more than the common glass-covered retail storefronts. 

Storage Units for Advocacy Four Inc.

Advocacy Four Inc. is a digital media group from Kaua’i. They are offering summer programs for middle school students at Hawaii Community College this summer. They stopped by one day interested in a storage unit to safely store their technology equipment. Their initial plan was to only offer summer sessions. However, they are expanding and looking to offer sessions in the fall as well. This storage unit would be a great asset in preventing them from having to transport equipment from Kaua’i to O’ahu in between sessions. We are like their home away from home! 

 

We also offer other services on property, like printing and van rentals.

Charles’ New Storage Unit

We maintain high standards of cleanliness for our storage units. We know how much our tenants love having clean, secure areas to store their items. Every time new customers are given a tour of our facilities, we always receive kind comments about our clean storage units. These remarks are highly valued by our stuff who invest time and effort in making our facilities shine!

Storage Units for Coworkers

Charles was looking for a unit with us recently. We only had large sizes available at the time. Although he was not looking for a large unit, this actually worked out in his favor. His plan was to share a large unit with his coworker since the company was covering the bill for the unit. Charles and his worker were recently at a big chain storage facility. They had been there for a while. They both toured our facility and were very impressed with our cleanliness and competitive pricing. As a small locally owned business, we compete with big chain storage companies in addition to small local businesses. We love it when customers can appreciate what we have to offer.

Dillingham Self Storage

Dillingham Self Storage for Kayak Storage

Dillingham Self Storage has recently received more calls for kayak storage. Last year, there were two fires at the popular Waikiki surfboard storage areas. We are assuming that the increase in demand for kayak storage stems from these unfortunate circumstances. Given the recent uptick in demand along with the hot summer months, we have not had much vacancy in our kayak storage areas.

Dillingham Self Storage Wait List

We encourage any potential kayak or surfboard storage tenants to give us your contact information and get on our wait list. The wait list here at Dillingham Self Storage is a great way for us to immediately get in contact with you when a spot opens. We had a customer who was so excited when we were finally able to call him and get him off the wait list. He came in to the office immediately to do the paperwork and get his auto payments set up. He was waiting to buy a new board until he knew that he would have storage space with us! We love hearing customer stories like this. Convenient and reliable storage can really open opportunities for people!

Self Storage Customers Over the Decades

We have some self storage customers that have been with us for over a decade. Char and Ken have been tenants with us since the very beginning in 2009. We appreciate their service and we love seeing them every time they stop by the office. We recently chatted with them about the storage facility that is moving in next door to us. Char and Ken recalled some unpleasant memories with this company years ago and we reassured them that Dillingham Self Storage is not going anywhere! We prioritize customer service, security, safety and hygiene. We hold all our storage units and van rentals to a high standard.

Long Term Self Storage Customers

We love having these long-time customers who have seen us change and grow over the decades. When we first started, we didn’t have our own fleet of rental vehicles. We didn’t even have the Dilly Print Shop! These loyal customers have watched us evolve and we love to see them every time they stop by the office. Char and Ken are some of our most loyal returning customers. We value them and love catching up with them each time we get to see them!

Dillingham Self Storage Auctions

Dillingham Self Storage holds auctions in person. Most storage facilities are only holding online auctions. We advertise our auctions in the legal classified section of the newspaper. This is where people can find details about the units up for auction. All auction participants must register at www.selfstorageauction.com. The structure of our auction requires that 15% of the winning bid fee must be paid online through this website using a credit card. The remaining balance is then paid at the storage facility office in cash. The website also offers added benefits, such as viewing auctions all over the island.

Dillingham Self Storage Auction Registration

By registering on the website, you can also participate in auctions held all over the island from the comfort of your own home. This makes it very convenient for individuals to participate in auctions that may be a far drive from them. We only hold these auctions after a tenant has not paid rent for a significant amount of time. Laws differ in each state but dates range from 30 – 90 days after an overdue rent payment. We then auction the individuals’ items to make room for a new tenant to rent the unit.  

 

We also offer other services on property, such as truck rentals and print shop services.

New Storage Unit Customers

We love welcoming new storage unit customers to the Dillingham ohana. Our business prioritizes security, cleanliness and customer service. 

Greg’s Storage Facility Tour

Greg was touring a storage facility nearby. He needed a unit for his part time job and to conveniently store his equipment. Greg stopped by Dillingham Blvd. Self Storage and we gave him a tour of our facilities. He was appreciative of our customer service and thanked us for being so helpful. Greg commented that other facility tours were not nearly as helpful or comprehensive and that their customer service was seriously lacking. When he stopped by Dillingham next, he was quick to make a decision! We gave him a tour and he immediately knew that he wanted to sign a lease with us. One of Greg’s main reasons for quickly signing a lease with us is because he felt so welcomed. We hear this from new customers all the time and we are happy to provide this welcoming comfort! We all know how challenging the last 2 years have been for both businesses and customers, so we try to provide the best aloha spirit whenever we can.

Dillingham Self Storage and Insurance

Dillingham Self Storage Third Party Option

Dillingham Self Storage offers an insurance policy to tenants for an additional price. We facilitate this through a third party insurance agent, MiniCo Tenant Insurance. They offer various policies that could best fit your storage needs. You would pay a monthly premium on top of your unit rent charges. MiniCo will cover your property against burglary, storms, smoke, fire, rodents and much more. 

Private Insurance Option

Another option for renters is to bypass this third party vendor and acquire insurance through their own renters’ or homeowners’ insurance. Some renters’ insurance policies will cover your storage unit against various unfortunate circumstances. However, we recommend asking about this as not all common renters’ insurance policies have this option. There also may be limits to what these policies cover in the case of an emergency.

Waiving Insurance

The last option is to completely waive insurance. However, we advise against this. Although Dillingham Self Storage is a gated and secure property, there has been a significant rise in crime in dense business areas. Therefore, it’s a very good idea to have some kind of insurance to protect against an unexpected incident.

Dillingham Self Storage Holidays

Dillingham Self Storage had a Christmas tree decorating contest over the holidays. Each member of the office staff was designated a tree to decorate and had $50 to spend on decorations. The only rule was not to surpass the $50 budget. Customers who came into the office voted on their favorite tree. We love engaging in a friendly Christmas competition with office staff and especially love it when our customers play a part! 

Dillingham Self Storage Customer Voting

Juli is a regular print shop customer of ours. We print and laminate menus and table numbers for her restaurant every few months. She placed an order for these while our Christmas trees were up. Juli was so excited to partake in the voting. Juli even stopped by the following week to contribute some gift certificates to the prize fund. Juli loves seeing a decorated office with all this Christmas cheer! Juli is such a sweetheart and we appreciate her positive spirit. We highly recommend checking out her restaurants, Pancakes and Waffles in Kalihi or Kaneohe Pancake House for some onolicious pancakes. We promise you will not be disappointed!

Dillingham Self Storage Gives Back

Dillingham Self Storage loves teaming up with charity. We recently donated to Hood 2 Hood’s toy drive. This program is run by Rayden. We’ve worked with Rayden before in his outreach programs. He focuses on delivering goods and items to children in underprivileged areas. He also has school supply drives that we’ve donated to. At the beginning of the school year in August, Rayden collected school supplies for elementary school age children. We were happy to donate and see all of the supplies go to deserving students. Rayden’s work is heartwarming and inspiring. We love working with people like this who prioritize children. 

Dillingham Self Storage and Rayden

This Christmas season, Rayden collected toys and gifts for children in low income areas. Rayden and his team stopped by Dillingham to pick up all of our donations. It was like Santa and his reindeer stopped by with their sleigh to deliver Christmas cheer! We were happy to contribute. Rayden does great work and we’re hoping to collect and contribute even more next year. We are also looking for other nonprofit organizations to get involved with. We love to give back to the community in any way we can.
