5A Rent-A-Space has been in business for 45 years. Our commitment to customer service has been paramount while providing a clean and safe place to store our customer’s possessions and treasures. As we reflect upon our anniversary this year, we remember our roots. During a slowing in the building and construction business, our founder, Jim Knuppe, had an opportunity to invest in a large warehouse with partitions. Out of a necessity to diversify his building business came this idea: to turn that warehouse with those partitions into a place where people could store their things. Some of our first customers in the early 1970’s were the Oakland Raiders organization. Currently we have locations in Foster City & Moraga, CA as well as Lahaina, Maui, Hawaii, with 3456 customers. Our company has since, also diversified into owning and operating Kcommons Executive Lease Homes.                         Foster City, CA circa: 1975  Lahaina, Maui   circa: 1987

Many homeowners find home renovations daunting. The biggest question often being which home renovation brings the highest sales return? An article in Remodeling magazine, suggest that completing basic home maintenance will always go the farthest with potential buyers. Things such as replacing the siding, roof and windows all ranked higher than the “gourmet kitchen” that is displayed in magazines. According to editorial Director Sal Alfano, “Buyers want to take the basic systems for granted.  They assume the roof doesn’t leak and the air condition and plumbing work.
