Manager At 5A Rent-A-Space Goes Far Beyond Expected Customer Service!

This December one of 5A Rent-A-Spaces Managers was enquiring of a local senior citizen who came in his office, how he was doing in his readiness for the holidays.

The gentleman said he wasn’t ready as because all their decorations were in the attic at his home, and he was dreading the chore of going up there to retrieve them. He really wished he had somewhere else to store them.

5A’s Manager suggested storing the decorations in a small, ground floor storage unit, thus
enabling him to get at them easily every year.

The fellow agreed, that would be an excellent solution, but said his aches and pains made it
nearly impossible for him to get up into the attic, let alone cart all those boxes down to the
main floor in his home then load them in his car and get them to storage.

So believe it or not – 5A’s Manager said he’d come over to the gentleman’s home, on his day
off, go up into his attic, cart down all the holiday decoration boxes, then take them to the 5A
Rent-A-Space storage facility in 5A’s moving van, and put them into a storage unit for him.

The fellow couldn’t pass up a deal like that, so he rented a unit and the holiday decorations now have a new storage place!

The hallmark of today’s home is a nearly “Zen” approach, with all the clutter removed.

People are taking note of the styles in home
d├ęcor magazines, and taking advantage of  the
variety of nice home furnishings and accessories
available in local department and  specialty stores,
even at regional furniture consignment stores!  All with an eye to the “clean swept” look of the minimalist.

There are great benefits in living in this trend.  You have less to clean, and less to gather dust!  Also for those whose allergies are a bane, dust-free is misery-free.  There is even the “…nothing on the closet floors” viewpoint, where every shoe has its place in a rack or container.  The additional benefit of all this organization is that you’ll always know where everything is because everything has its place!

How do you live like this?  It takes “stuff” to get along in he world; saved stuff, sports stuff, travel stuff, patio and BBQ stuff, big stuff like boats and jet skis, small stuff like Grandma’s miniature collection, too valuable and rich in memories to toss or sell.

Storage is the answer!  A storage unit really becomes part of your life. You can pack up any or all the “stuff” you need and want to keep, get it out of your house and know exactly where it is.

You can even use more than one unit to help separate things. That’s why it’s so convenient to have all the different sizes in units at a storage facility.  Several small units can help you categorize and keep your “stuff” organized.

It really is nice to have that clutter-free, “Zen” feel about your home.  You can even vacuum under the bed without sucking up some “stuff” that immobilizes your vacuum machine!

A great way to start getting your life in the “Zen”
mode is go to 5A’s “Space Calculator” at  http://www.5aspace.com/spacecalculator.html
And check-box all the items you intend to store.
It will act as your advisor to let you know how
much storage you need, and as your inventory
of what you’re storing in your unit.  Give them
a call at (800) 5A SPACE  (800) 527-7223 or
reserve a unit on line at www.5Aspace.com

Storage Tip Of The Day!


When you plan on remodeling any part of a client’s home, consider recommending storage to them as a safety measure before you and your work crew come on board. If they live off island or are traveling, you can do them the service of packing up all their fragile items, roll up area rugs, box up books, nick-knacks and lamps, especially wood or upholstered furniture, then protect it all in a storage unit.

Once you’ve got the area cleared out, you and your crew can then safely begin the work. Your clients can be secure in the knowledge that their items will be protected from damage and the usual dirt and sawdust that take place with any contracting job. Of course it's all progress and if it that’s what it takes to make their dream home come true, it's going to be worth it, and you can bill the cost of the unit with the job – what a convenience for you and your client!

When the job is complete and the clean up is done, you can bring their furniture and possessions back to a freshly renovated residence. When they’re back on island, they’ll be delighted that the remodel went so well and was handled so professionally.

Your local 5A Rent-A-Space has a “Contractor’s Special” on storage units. This is perfect for your client’s household goods while you work on their home. You can also have a unit on the special, used by you and your crew for tools, equipment, lumber and all your building needs.

5A has a free truck to move yours or your client's goods into a storage unit on a first time rental. You load it and unload it, 5A handles all the driving. It’s efficient and easy. Call for the details.

For all your blueprint needs, 5A has a Savin 360 blueprint copier. This top of the line equipment and can do blueprints downsized or full size, scan and copy to Flash Drive, or e-mail the scans in PDF where ever you need them. An excellent benefit that’s local and handy for last minute needs, multiple sets, or for client or City Department presentations.

As a business service center, 5A can also provide color copies, faxing services and they have Internet services available. They accept credit cards, are open 9:00 am to 6:00 pm Monday through Saturday, and 10:00 am – 3:00 pm Sunday.

CPR Training at 5A Rent-A-Space with FREE Gift!

If a cardiac arrest happened to your loved one or a close friend, would you know how to perform
life-saving CPR, which can double a victim’s chance of survival? Surprisingly, the vast majority
of citizens don’t. With bystander CPR, use of an automated electronic defibrillator if available,
and a rapid EMS response from your 9-1-1 call, our community can increase survival from
sudden cardiac arrest. The first link in the chain of survival is the most critical – immediate CPR
after a 9-1-1 call, while EMS is responding. Family and Friends CPR Anytime is a self-directed,
personal CPR kit that makes learning the core skills of CPR easy, convenient, affordable and fun
for the whole family. It takes just 22 minutes to learn and can be done anywhere. (This kit does
not provide certification in CPR.)

5A’s Moraga Managers, Brad and Gloria Noggle invite the entire community to learn the basics
of life saving CPR in 2 free classes March 26th at 10:00 AM and 2:00 PM, to be held in Suite I,
455 Moraga Road. One representative of each family attending will receive a CPR Anytime kit.
The Moraga-Orinda Fire District is providing the kits for 5A’s CPR training events. The
materials have been made available by grants from the Moraga Lions Club, the Upjohn Fund of
San Francisco, and the Rescue One Foundation.

In a letter to Brad & Gloria Noggle from Nancy Daniel, RN, EMS CQI/CPR Training Center
Coordinator, Moraga-Orinda Fire District, she says;
“I’m just back from Seattle/King County’s Resuscitation Academy, where I shared the
willingness of local merchants like you, to support the Town of Moraga in being designated a
HeartSafe Community. Your enthusiasm for providing a venue to demonstrate the CPR Anytime
self-directed learning program is infectious, and is exactly what I learned is key to promoting this
vitally important public health initiative. Your community leadership will go a long way to
strengthen the partnership between the Town, public safety, and the Fire District to increase
survival from sudden cardiac arrest by training the general public to respond immediately when
someone collapses in cardiac arrest.”
There will be an audio-visual presentation and hands on training with the CPR Anytime Kits. For
more information you’re welcome to call 5A at 925-631-7000, or visit their website at
