Harbor Bay RV and Self Storage: Safe Storage for Vehicles, Furniture and Files Alameda, CA

By Elizabeth R. Elstien

Your One-Stop Storage & Moving Supply Center.HBS is located on Bay Farm Island next to the Harbor Bay Business Park in Alameda, CA, and is located off Ron Cowan Parkway and close to Oakland Airport, Interstate 880 and other major highways in the San Francisco Bay and Oakland areas. It is easily accessible by vehicle, bus, taxi, or train. The storage facility is professionally managed by a team with over 20+ years of property management and leasing experience.

Offering safe storage solutions, HBS keeps the residents of Alameda - and their items - covered. Its 240 exterior drive-ups and 143 interior walk-ins units, fits everything from fine furniture to that rare coin collection. Along with 115 parking spaces, HBS has a Dump & Fill Station for the RV user.

Short-Term Parking is an added bonus providing an affordable solution to expensive and nearby parking when traveling whether for a few days or a few weeks.

Getting glaring looks from neighbors about that classic recreation vehicle (RV) in your driveway blocking their view? Move it to HBS and keep the community happy. More than just car parking, RVs, boats, motorcycles and trailers all have a spot here, although you may want to park your motorcycle in an enclosed storage unit instead to protect it from the weather.

With any storage facility, security is top priority. Access at HBS is gated and available only with an assigned electronic code. In addition, each unit is lighted and has an alarm system, as well as CCTV surveillance cameras strategically placed in the office, at the front gate and throughout the facility with on-site managers to oversee the facility at afterhours.

The storage facility stocks moving and packing materials to better protect your items so you have a smooth move into storage or a new home. For those moving items into storage for the long haul, the HBS Managers have the following tips:

  • Plan and organize ahead of the move, separate items not intended for storage.
  • Determine the amount of items for storing and rent space accordingly.
  • Label and color code storage bins for quick identification and retrieval.
  • Protect and cover delicate items with bubble wrap, furniture covers, wrapping paper, etc.
  • Maintain inventory list of stored items.
  • Keep spare keys to your storage unit lock at home.
  • Protect your storage gate access code from misuse.
  • Happy Moving!
