North Ranch Self Storage

By Jeanne Fulfer

North Ranch Self Storage, in Thousand Oaks, Calif., is the result of several years of planning. We wanted not just a storage facility, but a property that was a cut above the rest--a business for which we could be exceptionally proud. Great consideration was given to every detail prior to construction and architectural designs. We decided that we wanted to improve the image of self-storage and, at the same time, offer more services and convenience to our customers.

Our driveways were built wide with extra turning radius for easy access for semi-trailers and moving vans. We used oversized doors--up to 10 feet--for accessibility to RVs and boats. Our property offers a variety of sizes for every customer's needs ranging from 15 square feet to more than 1,400 square feet, with pricing competitive with other storage facilities in our area. We play soft music that can be heard inside and out to help relax the weary, tired movers and tenants. Our halls are finished in white enamel for brightness as well as cleanliness. We also have several entrances to long halls, which give customers a short walk to interior units and a feeling of safety.

We don't look like a normal self-storage facility from the exterior of our property. The buildings are lined with appealing arches and columns, as well as numerous faux windows. Our arched sign is lighted and shines like a beacon in the night to would-be customers.

North Ranch Self Storage was officially opened Dec. 22, 1997, and the leasing has been strong ever since. These results stem not only from the facility's prestigious appearance and friendly, professional services, but also from a state-of-the-art security system and recorded (24 hours daily) monitoring cameras. Many tenants have commented on how pleasant and secure they feel while at North Ranch Self-Storage.

We cater to commercial accounts and provide extra services such as 24-hour access, invoices, executive secretarial services, delivery acceptance and message services, among others. Our goal is to reach those commercial accounts which are too small for the business parks with an office environment, but too large for the home-based business. We have tapped into a definite need within our community and plan to continually grow along these lines. Our company is public-oriented and proud to be part of the Thousand Oaks/Westlake communities. We hope to have a long, profitable business within our area, one that is "a cut above the rest."
