Grand Opening for All Aboard Storage – Granada Depot!

Our newest All Aboard Storage location has officially opened its doors in Ormond Beach, FL! We threw a party that included a ribbon cutting with the Ormond Chamber, live music, food, and made memories with friends new and old.


We had a crowd of people show up that included vendors, employees, friends and family who toured the storage facility and the nearby All Aboard Offices. The Granada location has climate-controlled self storage units as well as office space in the neighboring All Aboard Offices building.


Check out some of the photos we took at the event!

2017 Daytona Beach Half Marathon Race

Daytona Beach Half Marathon Logo


Races draw a lot of people with the excitement of competition and the  camaraderie of participating in something big. Not only do the runners get the feeling of being part of something special, the volunteers do as well!


This was the feeling this past weekend on Sunday, Feb. 5th 2017. More than 2,980 people participated in a half marathon, relay, and a 5K. The race was held at the Daytona Beach International Speedway called the Daytona Beach Half Marathon.


Several of our employees at All Aboard Storage & All Aboard Properties signed up to volunteer to hand out water to the thirsty runners. The morning was chilly, but that didn’t stop us!


Here’s some highlights from the events below!

All Aboard for Our 2016 Company Cruise!

On January 22-25, All Aboard Properties President & CEO Andy Clark took his employees on their fourth annual 3-day cruise to the Bahamas on Royal Caribbean’s Enchantment of the Seas to celebrate attaining their 2015 financial goals. This cruise is our way to encourage teamwork, camaraderie, and as a reward for meeting goals. Group activities on the ship included a scavenger hunt as well as a rock wall climbing challenge. Every employee and a guest is invited and a private bus is rented to shuttle the group to and from our office building to the cruise terminal if our annual revenue goals are reached. 2015 was the 4th year in a row we attained our financial goal and it was our 4th cruise to celebrate this milestone.


We had a total of 26 of our 38 full-time employees go on the cruise this year. Three employees paid for additional family to attend beyond the one guest paid for by the company. Employees who did not attend stayed behind to work so that some of our 14 self-storage property offices could be open for our customers.

Pre-Cruise Group Taking the Bus

Here’s some of the group at the Clark Office Building just before departure. What a lively bunch!


Our group also met up at Senor Frogs in Nassau, Bahamas for some socializing. The waves were intense that night and crashing over the edge of the platform and onto the sidewalks. The night was beautiful with an amazing view of the ships in the dock:

All in all it was a great time with great friends – one more reason that All Aboard Properties & All Aboard Storage are great places to work!

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.

Tortugas Baseball Game 2015 – Company Event

This past Saturday, All Aboard Properties held our company event welcoming all employees to the Daytona Tortugas baseball game and what an event it was!


The picnic area was packed with managers from All Aboard Storage, maintenance crews, All Aboard Properties personnel, as well as family members of all ages. These events are great for bringing the entire company together for a little food, fun, and memories.



Some people like CEO Andy Clark donned their All Aboard Angels shirt, which is the charity wing of our company, and all employees had smiles as the Tortugas swept the field bringing in a win for our area.



The day lead into beautiful night and capped off with an impressive fireworks display that lasted much longer than most people were expecting, but imprinted lasting memories for a good time to come.



We are proud of our culture here at All Aboard Properties and strive to keep our employees connected with each other. Until the next event!
