Access Self Storage will open its second Bergen County storage center Oct. 28, in Franklin Lakes, N.J. Access will welcome local officials at a ceremonial ribbon-cutting and offer special discounts through December to all customers.
The 78,000-square-foot new facility will offer 768 individually alarmed, climate-controlled storage units in varying sizes. The facility will have easy accessibility, including a weather-protected drive-up area for loading and unloading, and state-of-the-art security.
Owners, Ken and Foy Cooley, expect a mix of commercial and residential users. “Much of our business comes from residential customers who are moving, renovating or just need more space,” says CEO Foy Cooley. “No matter how large people’s homes are, they run out of storage space. Especially in northern New Jersey where space is at a premium, self-storage centers fill an important need.”
Under the leadership of its founders, Access Self Storage continues to evolve its services, offering tenants access to moving trucks and supplies. “We’re always trying something different and improving on our ideas to make the moving and storage process easier for everyone,” says Foy Cooley, a past president of the Self Storage Association and a current officer of the New Jersey Self Storage Association. “The big things are still the simplest: Keeping our storage centers immaculately clean and secure, and taking exceptional care of our customers.”
A family-owned business, Access Self Storage opened the first self-storage facility in the greater New York Metropolitan area in 1976. Earlier this year, Access Self Storage purchased a 37,000-square-foot storage center with 350 units in Oakland, N.J.
