All New! All Different! Electrical Outlets!

More and more clients are using their spaces here at 2nd Avenue Storage as more than just a place to put their old furniture and clothes. The western hall is quickly turning into Artists' Row, with more and more people using our units as studios. We have hosted painters, illustrators, mixed media artists, woodworkers, and even a personal recording studio. We have one customer whose home office got too big for his home and set up shop inside a 9x9 unit (we offer wi-fi for a $10/month adder). We're especially excited about our newest customer who will be teaching piano lessons out of her storage unit. Should I keep calling them "storage" units? Maybe I need to change the name to 2nd Avenue Studio Spaces.

With all the new activity, we decided that Artists' Row needed some electrical outlets. Previously anyone needing electricity had to string an extension cord down to the lonely single outlet by the bathroom. No longer! We just added outlets down the eastern wall. 

If you need a space at 2nd Avenue Studio Spaces (or have suggestions on a better name) give us call at 205-332-1624.

2nd Avenue Storage Begrudgingly Sets Up Facebook Page, Eats Crow

If you're one of those people who enjoy using Facebook, please like our 2nd Avenue Storage page. I'm not terribly fond of Facebook, myself; the interface is noisy and confusing. However, a day after we opened up the page I got a call asking about renting a unit, so I guess it was a good thing. Also, leave some feedback on what you would want to see on a Facebook page about a storage facility, because I sure don't know. On an unrelated note, The Counts Brothers Building is a block away from Levy's Fine Jewelry and I just want to say that Ms. Rhoda's radio commercials are my favorite part of Christmas. Happy Holidays, everybody!

Proximity Card Access

The upper floor of the Counts Brothers Building is home to 2nd Avenue Storage. Until recently customers have used keys to enter and exit. This week we installed proximity card readers to increase security. Cards are serialized and entrances are recorded so that we know who is coming and going, and access can be more easily revoked if the need should arise. In other news, El Barrio has begun outdoor seating, taking advantage of the covered recess leading to the doorway of 2nd Avenue Storage and my loft. It's a nice place to enjoy the spring weather!
