AAA Storage has been storing Liberty Hill’s stuff since the 1960’s, but recent additions to the business have turned AAA Storage into the premier place to ship things.
“We are an official USPS (U.S. Postal Service) center, though not a post office. We also ship with FedEX, and DHL for international shipping. We sell shipping supplies. You can just bring in an item, and we can box it up and ship it for you. We can and will do all the labor on that for you,” says Regional Manager Jerry Grisham, Sr. “If you’re looking at shipping Christmas items, you could even get here on Dec. 22nd, and we’d be able to get it to their door in time.”
“Whatever you’ve got,” says Grisham. “Ship with the best, we’ll store the rest. Our rates are even cheaper than shipping online.” He says most people are surprised to find cheaper commercial rates are usually not available online.
AAA offers storage sheds are available in a variety of sizes, and they are useful for more than just long-term storage.
“We’ve had people rent them out for Christmas, and hide all the Christmas gifts in them,” he said. “If you’re having a surprise party, what better place to hide the decorations and party items than in a secure storage shed. We have numerous smaller units that are perfect options for that.”
The units are climate-controlled so valuables and older items are protected from the elements.
“This is really important because of the humidity-controlled environment. If you have high-dollar electronics, or antiques, or if you’re lucky enough to have spare oil paintings because they ‘just won’t fit in your mansion,’ the climate-control keeps them safe and in working order,” said Grisham.
When you do get ready to put your belongings into storage, AAA Storage can offer help with packing as well.
“We sell a vast supply of boxes. We even sell the tape. Anything we can do to save you from running into Austin every time you need something. We try to make it convenient for Liberty Hill folks. We all know what it’s like to need one thing and have to run all the way into town for it,” he said.
AAA Storage offers all ground floor units, so there’s no need to try to move a piano up the stairs. They also offer online bill payment and account management to make it easy to keep your account up to date.
“We use a program call Web Self Storage where they can actually go online and they are in control of everything about the unit. That program can also accept payments, so from anywhere in the world, you can submit a payment, as long as you have a computer,” says Grisham.
AAA Storage units are also available for short-term and long-term boat and RV, and their convenient location off State Highway 29 makes it perfect for weekend trips to the lake or deer lease. Wide access driveways make it easy to get trailers and RV’s in and out.
“Those are parked on solid cement and asphalt base, so there’s no parking it in the gravel. It’s also great for when your HOA won’t allow you to park a boat trailer in front of your house. We offer the security and the safety to ensure your items are taken care of,” Grisham said.
“We offer more than storage. We’re here to be a part of the community any way we can,” he added. “If we can offer a choice or an option that provides more convenience for the people of Liberty Hill, that’s great. We’re here for the long haul. We plan on sticking around as long as we can.”
AAA Storage is located at 15725 SH 29. For more information, call (512) 515-1009 or visit the website at www.aaa-storage.com.
