Port Orange Family Days 2015 & Feeding Children Everywhere

All Aboard Storage recently participated in Port Orange Family Days 2015!

Port Orange Family Days is a family-centric event that started in 1995 with an attendance of 15,000 people that has grown now to over 60,000. The all-volunteer group organizes sponsors to put on the event with tents, food trucks, rides, and all kinds of entertainment over a number long weekend in October.


Feeding Children Everywhere – Hunger Project

One of the wonderful events that took place at Family Days was called the Feeding Children Everywhere Campaign, which All Aboard Storage employees attended.


Feeding Children Everywhere Event


Our All Aboard Angels came together and assembled healthy meals for children around the world that we got to personally pack up and assemble, which will then be delivered to children who need a good meal.

There’s not a greater feeling of love and hope than putting food in the bellies of children who are in need.

Arthaus 16th Annual Street Painting Festival

Another fun event that we got to be involved with was a festival where street painters came together to create beautiful works of art on the sidewalk. They used their creative talents to compete for the winner’s title.


Our Rachel Widdison won “Best of Show Runner Up!” Here’s Rachel in action below with her creative portrait:

How Much Should & Do Storage Units Cost?

How Much Should & Do Storage Units Cost?

If you’ve never had to rent storage from a local storage facility then you might not know, what is the cost of a storage unit? And more importantly, how much should storage units’ prices cost?

You wouldn’t just show up and buy a car without doing some price-shopping beforehand such as checking Kelly Blue Book or websites like Auto Finder. So what affects storage rates?

As with any product, there are a number of factors that contribute to the storage prices.

  • Size of the unit (3×3, 5×10, 10×10, etc.)
  • Self-storage or climate-controlled
  • Location of the facility
  • Which floor the unit is located on
  • Occupancy rate of the facility
  • Don’t forget storage insurance!
  • Are there hidden fees?

Any number or combination of these things can cause the price for storage space to go up or down.


Size of the Storage Unit

Storage units come in different shapes and sizes. Depending on how much you want to store, you can fit a lot more as you go up in floor area. Some of the more common sizes are:

  • 3×3’s – 9 sq. ft.
  • 5×10’s – 50 sq. ft.
  • 10×10’s – 100 sq. ft.


Self-storage or Climate-Controlled?

If you’re storing items that might degrade with temperature fluctuations, choosing climate-controlled will up the price a bit since they need to have a stable environment.


Location of the Facility

If there are several storage facilities in the area, this could possibly cause the price to go down due to the normal business rules of competition and what the market can bare.


Which floor is the storage unit located on?

You might save a few bucks if you rent a storage unit that’s not located on the ground floor since it’s extra work to use freight elevators to go up and down.


Occupancy Rate of the Facility

Another business rule that comes into play just as it does for hotels is how full is the storage facility?


Don’t forget storage insurance!

Since we require storage insurance to protect all of our customers, don’t forget to factor this into your storage unit cost that is quoted. You can save some money by showing proof of home owner’s insurance to negate this cost!


At All Aboard Storage, our systems automatically calculate the price of storage due to all of these factors. We keep very competitive prices when it comes to competing with local self-storage companies and are confident you’ll find that what we offer is worth the money.
