About Guardian Storage
For over 30 years, Guardian Storage has operated on the belief that self storage should be more than just a place to store your belongings. Many of our customers come to us during a stressful life transition, including moving to a new home or renovating one, downsizing elderly parents, preparing for a new baby, combining or separating households, cleaning out a home after the loss of a loved one, etc. Guardian Storage operates around the idea of helping to make those transitions as easy and stress-free as possible.
We invest substantially and regularly in the quality, security, and cleanliness of our properties. However, what sets us apart from others is our dedicated, long-tenured team of professionals. Every Guardian Storage location has a highly-trained, full-time property manager, associate manager, and maintenance specialist on site.
We are known for our warm, friendly professionals who take pride in their work. Our employees go above and beyond for customers, whether it be staying late to help a customer, showing them how to downsize to a smaller storage unit, or even offering a shoulder to cry on. We know our tenants by name and greet them with kindness and compassion every time they are at the property.
In addition to our service, we also offer a long list of features and amenities to ensure the best possible experience for our customers. These amenities include:
– Clean, modern, well-lit properties
– Free use of our moving trucks
– Large, covered loading docks with moving carts and dollies
– Free wi-fi, package acceptance, and conference
– Free coffee, tea, and bottled water
– Fully gated properties with passcode protected entry
– Individual unit alarms, smart sprinkler systems, and preventative pest control
In addition to caring for our customers, we take great pride in giving back to our communities.
Below are just a few things we do to show our gratitude and support for our communities:
– We support local education by adopting schools and providing critical school supplies to more than 600 low-income students through Pittsburgh’s The Education Partnership and Colorado’s A Precious Child.
– We donate storage space and manage donation collections for disaster relief including house fires, floods, and other natural disasters.
– We collect Suits for Soldiers and gently used prom attire for disabled students attending their “A Night to Remember” prom
– We hold fundraising events for community members battling terminal diseases
– We donated more than $100,000 worth of storage space each year to dozens of non-profit organizations
As we continue to grow as a company, we are proud to consistently follow the belief that top-notch customer service is at the heart of what our company is all about.
“From the start, we knew focusing on service was important to stand out in our category, and over 30 years later it continues to be just as important. Building relationships and solving problems for our customers is at the core of our company. I’m proud to be part of such an amazing team and look forward to continuing to offer the highest level of service to our customers.” – Steven Cohen, President and founder of Guardian Storage
