I like the hours, and everybody is so polite and friendly. Having access to my storage until 10;00 pm is very important to me. Most places close at 7:00 or 8:00 pm. It's hard to find one open until 10:00 pm.

STAX El Cajon is the finest storage place in San Diego county! I'm a teacher without a garage and I have rented there on & off there for the past 10 years. It's clean, affordable, secure, very accessible, and the manager is very courteous and knowledgeable about moving tips & rental equipment. Employees treat customers like neighbors from "Mayberry" and I feel safe when using the facility. Unlike the giant mazes of other places, it's small, tidy, and convenient to get in and out of. It also has supplies for sale as well as several U-Haul vehicles for rent. This is your one-stop place for storage! Thanks Paul!

As a contractor of over 30 years, I've always needed just a little more storage. As a result, I've been a tenant at a few storage yards. My experiences have been poor to say the least; my units have been broken into, had to work around broken gates and stumble over illegal tenant's living in units and almost destroyed by fire. I was pleased when I first drove up and saw the neat and clean environment. I have been impressed with the current manager Paul Mauer, and his attention to detail and professional manner. I have recommended this facility to others and will continue to do so. Keep up the good work, it is appreciated.

I chose StaxUp for 3 reasons: First because it was an all drive up directly to the storage unit and being able to unload without opening doors of going down hallways. The second was it was right down the same street that I live on. The third and final and most important is that the manager you have hired is clean cut, very polite, and helpful.

Quick, secure, easy, and overall a positive experience. I love StaxUp storage. The manager Paul was helpful and genuinely caring. Paul only recommended what I needed, rather than trying to upsell the biggest unit. It is important when I leave my valuables with someone else, I leave it with someone who I can trust who has my best interest in mind. The storage unit was clean, spacious and secure. I can manage my account online and easily set up reoccurring payments. Flexible hours to move things in and out of the storage unit and convienantly located right off the freeway.

STAXUP EL CAJON DONATES SCHOOL SUPPLIES TO LOCAL ELEMENTARY SCHOOL

School supplies being dropped off at the W.D. Hall Elementary School in El Cajon, CA.

“StaxUp Storage El Cajon made a small but significant contribution to the annual school drive,” said StaxUp Storage – El Cajon Property Manager Paul Mauer. “It was really great to be able to call the school nearby to our facility and ask the teachers what supplies they could most use. A number of the teachers and the principal were there to receive the school supplies. They were so appreciative of what was brought for their students, and they didn’t seem to mind the fact that there were some left over candy bars that had not sold.”

Christmas is a magical time when families and friends come together to eat, drink, and be merry. But what about those in our community who aren’t financially able to celebrate the way they would like?

Paul Mauer, Manager at StaxUP Storage in El Cajon, California, took it upon himself this year to look after two families during the holiday season.

“We just want to help those who are having a hard time. There’s a mother and a grandmother here who wouldn’t be able to provide Christmas presents for these kids, so it’s something I wanted to do,” Paul said.

Come on down to the StaxUP Storage location El Cajon to contribute. We are currently accepting donations in the form of toys, money, and gift cards. Help us give back to some of El Cajon’s neediest residents and help two families have a very joyful Christmas.

STAXUP STORAGE IN EL CAJON ADOPTS TWO FAMILIES FOR CHRISTMAS

The team at StaxUP Storage in El Cajon, CA helped two families celebrate Christmas this year by providing presents.

In the middle of December, we told you about the StaxUP Storage team’s goal to provide Christmas presents for two El Cajon, CA area families. We are happy to announce that this is the fourth year the team has successfully participated in the city’s Adopt a Family program.

Paul Mauer, manager at StaxUP Storage in El Cajon, was not able to attend the event where the families received the gifts, but has been a part of the store’s adopt a family events since the beginning.

“I know how much of a difference this can make based on my experience in previous years. In the past, we’ve helped people who have just lost their jobs, people who have been in accidents,” said Paul.”I know that whatever they’re going through this year has to be pretty tough, so I’m glad that we were able to get the people taking care of the kids something, because I’m sure if it came down to it, they’d just get something for the kids and nothing for themselves.”

 
 
 

Enough donations were raised to provide presents for four children and three adults in all. The team at StaxUP – El Cajon shows how even a small team can make a big difference in the community, even without a lot of time. Due to various circumstances, the donation drive only ran for two weeks, but was still a success.

“It was really fun. The families got there one by one,” said Korina, StaxUP Storage Assistant Manager. “The first family was a mom and her son and they were both really grateful. The little boy was really sweet and he kept pointing out how his name was on the wall and how he had his family’s name there. He was just really excited. It felt really rewarding being able to help out a family at Christmas.”  

Seeing the impact it has on local families has inspired the staff to make adopting a family (or two or three) a yearly tradition. Next year they hope to get the word about the event out a little earlier in December, so more members of the storage community and surrounding businesses can contribute. Great job, team! Can’t wait to see the good you do next year!

Paul Mauer is the facility manager at StaxUP Storage in El Cajon, California and he is celebrating 4 years with the team.

Peter: Hey Paul, how many years are we celebrating with StaxUP this year?

Paul: That would be 4 years this year.

Peter: Congratulations! Four years is a long time to work at any job these days.

Paul: Haha, yeah, that’s for sure!

Peter: Do you have any stories from your 4 years in self storage that people might be interested in?

Paul: I don’t know how much time you got, haha,

Peter: Right? Haha, working in self storage is so unique in that you’re dealing with people’s stuff. It’s really personal. Do you have any stories about a happy time or a time when you really helped someone out?

Paul: Well, I really liked helping Teen Challenge. I don’t know if you’re aware, but it’s a group that helps kids recover from drug abuse. There’s some younger ones and some that are older as well. We used to have a car wash for a few years and it was really neat having people come up and get their car washed for free, but we encouraged donations. People were very generous. To me, the most exciting thing was just watching these guys be so excited about washing these cars and stuff and doing it because they’ve been changed. It was just so neat to see them and the joy and the peace they had now and to me that was just a really special time. I’d like to do something like that again with foster kids. I’d like to do a car wash or something like that as well. I really enjoy being able to do that and that StaxUP has made it possible for me to do that, because they want to help out.

Peter: That’s awesome. Just great. You’re out at El Cajon, right?  

Paul: That’s correct.

drive up access at staxup storage in el cajon

StaxUP Storage in El Cajon, CA features drive up units and is entirely ground floor.

Peter: Tell me a little bit about that facility. I’ve been there a couple times, but the people who are going to read this maybe haven’t been there before. What are some of the unique features of that facility?

Paul: We’re a very small facility. There are only 218 units. The good thing about it is it’s all ground floor units. You don’t have to go up any elevators. You don’t have to go up any stairs. You can drive right up to it. It’s actually got good gate hours from 6 in the morning to 10 at night. That’s why a lot of people come here, because it’s so convenient. A lot of other places you have to go down a hallway or up some stairs or you have swing doors. These are roll up doors, so it’s really handy. It’s in a residential area, so it’s pretty quiet and people feel pretty safe. Like I said, it’s a smaller facility, so we don’t have any issues. I had some issues when I first came here, but now it’s pretty quiet. People feel secure storing here.

Peter: Taking over new management from a previous owner can be tricky sometimes.

Paul: Yeah, it was a little different in the old days. Some people had some ideas that were problematic. Now, we have people here who are happy about the fact that we keep up with maintenance and that I treat it like it’s my own facility.

Peter: Working in self storage sounds like a pretty sweet gig.

Paul: Yeah, that’s what I tell people. I worked in maintenance for many years and the reason I got started into it is because I like working with people. There are a lot of people who need to use self storage due to unfortunate circumstances. I really try to help those people out and work with them and be understanding about their situation. And also be able to joke around with them and make them laugh a little.

Peter: It’s nice when someone can lighten the mood during a stressful time.

Paul: For sure.

Peter: So, you’re not always at work. Do you have any hobbies that you like to partake in when you aren’t in the office?

Paul: I’m not too exciting anymore. I used to do a lot of other things, but now I just mostly enjoy hanging out with my wife and son when I have free time. Whatever we’re doing, that’s what I enjoy doing.

Peter: Family is the most important thing.

Paul: Yeah, I used to do a lot of other things, but I realized that people are the most important, so I enjoy spending time with them.

Peter: For sure, for sure. Are there any restaurants in the area you like to frequent?

Paul: Oh, you know, I don’t like to go out that much. As far as restaurants go, I’m not much for going out. I enjoy my wife’s cooking. We go out occasionally, but I wouldn’t say I have a favorite place.  

Peter: In that case, does your wife have any go to dishes or recipes? What’s one of your favorite things your wife cooks?

Paul: Oh, that she makes? Probably posole. She makes great posole. She also makes clam chowder as well. She makes enchiladas.

Rent your next U-haul from StaxUP Storage in El Cajon, CA!

Peter: Yes, that sounds delicious. At the end of these, I like to ask if there’s anyone at StaxUP or in the home office that you think deserves a shout out for helping you in the past. Is there anyone who deserves a shout out?

Paul: I’d like to thank Julie for giving me a chance. I mean, I came out here from Wisconsin 4 years ago and I was already in my 50’s at the time. I wanted to move back to be more involved in missions work down in Mexico. It’s not easy to get a job when you’re in your 50’s already especially doing something else, but I wanted to get started working with people.I understand that most of the people working in this field are younger, 20’s-early 30’s, getting into it. Her and Don, when they interviewed me, took a chance on me, because I was new moving here, I was older and had very little experience working with a computer, so that’s why I want to give a shoutout to Julie, because she gave me a chance and was a great District Manager.
