Dillingham Storage Bento Drive-Through

The Dillingham Storage ohana partnered up with the Surfrider Spirit Organization to offer a bento giveaway! In the last week of April, we hosted a “bento drive-through” on Friday for anyone who saw our sign on the street driving by. With the help of our friends at the Surfrider Spirit Organization, we provided free meals to all those who drove by on Friday. It was a great time and we are so happy we could help feed the community during this time of uncertainty and hardship. 

Supporting Local Business

We love supporting local businesses and were happy to do so by purchasing bentos from a local restaurant. It is important for local business owners to support each other and keep spirits up during this time. Although the Stay-At-Home Order has been extended, we can still spread aloha from a safe distance! 

Dillingham Storage Loves Bentos

Our storage ohana had a great time passing out meals to all those who drove through the front lot. It was a fun experience and a great way to meet people in the community, safely! Everyone loves bentos and we are so happy that we could provide this to members of our community. People commented on how they loved the idea and were excited to get some free lunch at Dillingham Storage on Friday!

Dillingham Storage to Flatten the Curve

Dillingham Storage wants everyone to know that we are thinking of our customers and tenants during this time! Practicing social distancing is difficult, especially for us. Although we are listed as an essential business and remain open, we have new policies in place to restrict the flow of customers. We are accustomed to chatting with our “regulars” on a periodic basis and having multiple people in the office at once. It is difficult to have the 2 person-max capacity constraint on our front office right now, but it is for the best. 

Stay Safe and Stay Healthy

In order to stop the spread, we must stay behind our plexiglass and just hope that things go back to normal. We know that everyone is uneasy right now and the future is uncertain. The ohana at Dillingham Storage wishes it could give everyone a big hug right now! This is a trying time for most right now, and we are hoping that all of our tenants and customers are safe and healthy. 

Dillingham Storage New Policies

It is important for all of us to contribute to “flatten the curve” by staying home and staying inside! Here at Dillingham we are making our contribution with our new sanitation policies and office policies in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. We are doing our best to help the community, and also keep our staff safe and healthy.

Shirley’s New Unit at Dillingham Storage

Shirley has been a tenant with Dillingham Storage since 2012. That’s 8 years with us! She has held one of our larger units for quite some time now. We are happy to have her around. Shirley stopped by one day to see if she could secure a lease on two more units of the same size. We gave her a tour of what we had available. 

Two Units at Dillingham Storage

She explained to us that she actually had two units at another facility and has wanted to move over to Dillingham Storage for a long time but has not had the time or manpower. We know moving can be stressful and time consuming. Sometimes it does not all happen on our watch as we would like. Shirley was happy with the units she saw at our facilities and finally made the decision. She was unhappy with the lack of customer service at her other storage facility, even though she was one of their long-time storage tenants. Customer service is a priority to us! 

Shirley decided to move in with us full time and keep her storage units with us. We are happy she made the decision because now we get to see her more often!  

Give us a call if you are interested in our other services, like truck rentals or print services, at our Dillingham Self Storage facility.

Customer Spotlight: Pearl

Our Dillingham storage business has been open for a long time. We have had tenants and customers with us since our very first day along with those who come and go periodically. We have expanded our business to include a print shop as well as our own fleet of rental vans and trucks. It’s been great growing our business. 

Long Time Dillingham Storage Customer

Pearl was one of those customers that started with us in the very beginning. She was one of our first tenants upon opening the storage facility. She left the islands some time later and closed out her unit with us. However, she recently has started her move back to the islands – because who can resist Hawai’i! She checked in on us and asked about availability to start planning her move. Storage units can be useful when planning a big move to hold large items while in the process of finding a place. Pearl was a big fan of our Dillingham storage facilities and we were her top choice for a storage venue. However, she noticed our rates had increased since she last saw us. Hawai’i is an expensive place to live and operate a business, and over the years our demand has grown. Regardless, Pearl is still aiming to store with us for her upcoming move. We’re happy to have you back, Pearl!
