Special feature///GU Self Storage

Storage facility offer security and services W

hether for personal or business use, self-storage facilities are a convenient and reasonable option for storing your property. We all accumulate stuff we don’t need daily, and sometimes you need a place to store it outside of your home. When you’re moving to a new house or renovating your current one, using a self-storage unit can help in the transition period. It’s also a good option for business storage, and many small businesses take advantage of storage and other services that may be offered. GU Self Storage opened April 10, 2017 in the former Guam Power Authority building on Route 16 in Harmon. The indoor, climate-controlled 300 plus units range in size from 5-by5 feet to 10-by-25 feet and 22-by-27 feet and is owned by Calvo Enterprises Inc. “The building was previously Pay-Less [Supermarkets] for years and GPA’s headquarters. It’s right in the open and seemed like an ideal opportunity to facilitate the needs of the community,” says Terry Debold, who is responsible for the GU Self Storage’s public relations and sales. “It was easy to retrofit. It didn’t require a lot of renovations. It was already climate-controlled, which is important for a lot of people — they want to make sure that their property is protected in a climate-controlled area.” The 40,000-square-foot facility also includes mailboxes and a conference room, where small-business owners or clients with virtual offices can hold meetings or conduct presentations. It also features a covered entry area, so clients can load and unload their things without anything getting wet when it rains. There is also a backup full power generator. “We’re the most highly secured storage on Guam,” Debold says. With nearly 200 security cameras inside and outside the facility feeding to a 24-hour CCTV system and lights placed around the property, clients can feel safe about themselves and their property at all times. The double access control system requires a PIN for entry into the gate and then again to the building. Access is easy through large garage doors, and the facility is equipped with pallet jacks and specialized appliance jacks for customers to use. Starting from $50 per month per unit, the rates are reasonable and are prorated depending on the usage terms. There are also vehicle and boat storage areas, as well as space for containers. Also operating out of the facility is Mail Hub, a mail service, notary and shipping supplies business that partners with Shopthe48.com to bring Guam residents goods from any stateside retailer. The office is open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday to Saturday and from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Sunday, but tenants have access to their units 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily. 28
