The True Meaning Behind our “Amazing Difference”
How I Encountered the Amazing Difference in Storage at Amazing Spaces
Hello everyone! My name is Kelsey and I am the newbie at Amazing Spaces. Like so many of you, I am a Houston-transplant and recently moved from another state. While preparing for our move, my husband and I agreed we needed to find a storage unit for his prized sports car. He put me in charge of finding a unit, instructing me to choose a place with top notch security, located in a safe area, and provided superb quality service (my husband is all about the convenience that comes with quality customer service).
Knowing very little about renting storage, I assumed we wouldn’t find a storage unit that met every one of his demands. Honestly, when I pictured self-storage, I pictured orange doors, dark corners, and something dripping from the ceiling. I shuddered at the thought of having to visit these places. I couldn’t believe I had to find his storage unit. Didn’t he care about my safety? Did he expect me to visit these scary places all on my own?
I started my research online since we were still living out of state and couldn’t visit the properties. I actually surprised by the nice images that I found. Sure, I saw places with orange doors, but I also discovered places that appeared to be clean and friendly. I read reviews and thought, well if 25 people thought this places is nice, maybe I will too… the pictures looked nice enough, but nothing too crazy. I had about a dozen tabs open on my browser, going back and forth between the options. I didn’t really care about the locations, as I knew we were just staying in a hotel and would be moving to an unknown apartment location in the future. When I stumbled upon Amazing Spaces, I did a double take. THIS place offers storage? Hello, gorgeous! My interest was immediately peaked. I liked the looks, the reviews, and especially liked the name. Everything looked so…unbelievably incredible!
When we arrived in Houston, I didn’t bother visiting any other storage facility. I was hooked on the beautiful images of Amazing Spaces and already deemed it as “my storage property”. I was relieved that when I visited the Champions/Vintage Park store of Amazing Spaces to discover the pictures weren’t a lie – it was just as beautiful in person as it was online. The property manager at the Champions ~ Vintage Park location, patiently answered my questions, taking the time to give me a tour and explain everything in detail. By the end of our 20 minutes together, I wanted to hug her, feeling as though I gained a friend. The rest is history. We rented a unit for his car and ended up storing additional items that we couldn’t fit into our apartment. To this day, my husband brags to his friends about his fancy storage unit. “A unit fit for the Mopar” he proudly declares. Somewhere along the lines, I discovered that Amazing Spaces was hiring and applied for the dream job that I’ve always wanted. Everything fell into place, truly making Houston our new home, sweet home.
What the Amazing Differences Really Means
My experience is similar to so many others out there. I wanted to take a moment to reflect on the many elements at each of properties that comprise the “Amazing Difference” of Amazing Spaces. If you’re researching self-storage and amazed by what you’re seeing at Amazing Spaces, read on to learn more about our “Amazing Differences”. Since 1998, we have worked to provide a self-storage experience second to none. Our owners came up with the concept of Amazing Spaces after encountering negative experiences with storage. While shopping for storage, the owners could not figure out why it was so hard to find a storage place that made you feel welcome and secure. After visiting several dozen stores, it became clear that the type of storage they were seeking did not yet exist. And the Amazing Spaces concept was born: Storage that you can feel confident leaving your belongings.
This is not an all-inclusive list, but rather, the items that I don’t think most people notice right away. I wanted to share these elements with each of you, so you would have a greater understanding of the efforts behind each day at Amazing Spaces.
Friendly and Professional Staff
When you walk into an Amazing Spaces, the first thing you will encounter (aside from the beauty of our interiors) is the smiling face of one of our staff members. Each member of our staff goes through a rigorous training program. The Amazing difference starts with these individuals. This is why we are constantly looking for ways to develop and attend to the needs of all Amazing Spaces employees.

This translates into happy employees that pass along our Amazing Difference to each person that walks through our doors. Looking for a new career?

High Quality Security
We work to ensure each of our stores operates at maximum security. By investing in the latest technologies to secure our properties, we can promise a secure storage experience like no where else. Our colored cameras record 24/7 and each unit’s individual alarm is monitored by a 3rd party security system. The walls of our units reach the ceiling (there’s no chicken wire to the top). Far too often we hear unfortunate stories about people who chose to store elsewhere and had their unit robbed. In our business, having a functional security system is key. We take security seriously. Amid our beautifully designed properties is Fort Knox.
Perks of Storing
Okay, so there is a huge number of perks that come with an Amazing Spaces unit, to name a few:
- Free coffee (I don’t know about you, but with enough coffee, I could rule the world”.
- Free use of the conference room (Hello, convenience!)
- Package acceptance service (have your packages delivered right to your unit. Awesome-sauce!)
- Individual vent in Climate Controlled units (so your items are climate controlled, not just our storage)
- Female-friendly (as a female, I normally dread visiting places like storage facilities…it’s a different story at Amazing Spaces)
