The young couple purchased the former New Genesys Self Storage at 10433 N. Holly Rd. in January, renamed it Abe’s Storage, and are focusing on upgrading the facility and the customer service.

With their hands-on, local ownership, they offer security, personal attention, and pricing that beats their nationally owned competitors.

Jim, Carey, or their manager Laura Nuyen will be in the office from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday through Friday and 9 a.m.- noon on Saturdays.

The recently overhauled automatic gate operates from 6 a.m.-10 p.m. every day, but if a customer would need access at a different time, Jim would arrange for it. He said he is flexible and will work with his customers on any issue.

With seven acres, they offer plenty of outdoor storage for RV, boats, cars, trucks, and heavy equipment for $25 to $30 a month, and inside storage in five different sized units.

There are frequent promotions, such the first month free with three months paid in advance special that is available now. They had a home-from-college special for short term renting of the smallest units and will offer a Christmas special for those parents who want to hide gifts from curious children.

They have a U-Haul franchise with some on-site trucks, trailers, and tow-dollies. Jim can order other U-Haul equipment through the website or customers can do it themselves for pick up at Abe’s.

The staff will help customers with any moving or packing need, such as special packaging for a flat screen television. Packing boxes, wardrobe boxes, mattress bags, tape, and other moving supplies are available as well as a propane tank exchange.

Carey’s family is in the storage business, and the couple previously owned a warehouse storage facility, so they bring experience with them.

Jim said, “We are not the Taj-Mahal, but we offer secure, safe, clean storage at reasonable prices.”
