Dillingham Self Storage Clean Facilities

We have had our Dillingham Self Storage facilities for almost ten years now. We’ve been open for a while so we’ve worked on perfecting our business processes and getting everything just right for our clients. Some things we prioritize are security, safety and cleanliness. We invest in 24 hour surveillance systems, security guards and thorough cleaning procedures. We are proud of it, and happy when people take notice of it!

Clean Facility

Lisa just moved to the islands from the mainland. Her movers hadn’t even moved her things into her home yet before she came to see us. She inquired about a unit because she knew her new home would not fit all of her belongings. Lisa commented on our clear communication over the phone and that’s what piqued her interest to come into our facility. When she stopped by for a tour, she loved how clean it was. She actually thought we were a brand new facility because of the facility’s hygiene! We love it when people notice our hard work. 

Lisa’s Dillingham Self Storage Unit

Lisa decided to sign a lease with us because she was so happy with what she saw on her tour. We’re happy to welcome Lisa, someone who recognizes how hard we work to keep Dillingham Self Storage in tip top shape! 

Moving Vans

Our self storage is also equipped with moving vans and box vans for rent. These can be very useful for moving, like in Lisa’s case.

Dillingham Self Storage Best of the Best

Our Dillingham Self Storage has done it again! We were listed in Hawaii’s 2019 Best of the Best for best storage places again. Mahalo to everyone who voted us in this year’s competition, we are so grateful and appreciative of your support. We came in 2nd place again this year. The first place winner is a storage company with multiple locations around the island. We are so proud of our single Dillingham location for measuring up against these big companies. Congratulations to all the other storage businesses who placed in this year’s Best of the Best.

We have consistently placed on the list for Best of the Best in the last few years. We are so happy and proud of our ohana here at Dillingham Self Storage. It is an honor holding this 2nd place title and we will work to place again next year!

Thank you to everyone for voting and participating. We are so grateful for all the love and support. It is so awesome to know that our tenants and customers are happy with the services offered. That’s our priority! Mahalo!

Although our storage place won a Best of the Best award, we also offer other services like van rentals and print shop services.

FAQ’s for Self Storage Facilities

Our self storage facilities come with rules and guidelines. Each individual lease sets out the guidelines for move out procedures and due dates for rent. Rent is due on the first of each month. There is a grace period if payment is not received, but that is only before late fees are added to the due amount.

Move-Out Process

If tenants are moving out and terminating their lease, it is mandatory that all of their things be removed from the storage unit along with the lock on the front of the unit. There is no grace period for this move out process. If a tenant’s storage unit is still occupied by the first of the month, they are responsible for the next month’s rent. We are a month to month facility so as long as you are moved out by the last day of the month, you are not responsible for the next month’s rent.

Pro-rating Rent

If tenants move in to their units after the first of the month, we can prorate the rent for that month. However, if tenants move out prior to the last day of the month, we do not offer prorated rent. We do not offer rental refunds. Upon move-in paperwork, there is a one time administrative fee of $20.

Stop By Our Self Storage Facilities

We hope this helps your understanding of how our processes and self storage facilities work. We know it can be confusing at times because we are different from most storage facilities, but we are here to help. Please call or email us with any questions, or stop by and say hi at Dillingham Self Storage! Or leave us a review on Yelp!

Holidays at Dillingham Self Storage

Dillingham Self Storage sees a lot of tenants during the holidays because many keep their holiday decorations in storage for the rest of the year. Those who don’t come in on a periodic basis tend to stop by frequently during the holidays. People are cleaning their homes for the new year or making space for their decorated trees.

Holiday Rush

We have been busy these last few weeks as we’ve had an influx of storage units inquiries for the next month. Many families like to clear their homes of old or unused items during this time as part of their annual traditions to prepare for the new year. New tenants are joining the family as they clear through old things in their home and put into storage their family items. As part of this, people always stop by their storage unit to get rid of old things in there, too!

Storing Decorations

Dillingham Self Storage units can be helpful in storing your holiday decorations like fragile ornaments and special family items. Here, they are safe from obstruction or misplacement. They don’t go anywhere! Our facilities are fully equipped with security surveillance and staff to ensure that your items are safe. Storage may even be a good place for santa to store his presents!

So if you stop by in the near future, you’ll probably see it on our front door and that’s why!
