The Best Storage Place for Laura

Laura was renting a truck rental from our fleet of Dilly Van Rentals to help her moving process. She was moving into a new place and transporting all of her items in storage to the new home. Laura had called us to reserve a cargo van but we did not realize that she was already a storage tenant with us, and had been with us for almost a year.

She stopped by to pick up the van and we realized she was a tenant! Laura was talking story with us while picking up the van and packing her belongings into it. She shared how much she liked it here at Dillingham Self Storage. She commented on how clean and safe it was. Laura recommended us to all of her friends looking around for storage units. She really thinks we are the best storage place!

The Best Storage Place

Upon Laura’s returning the cargo van and her departure, she came to pass out hugs to all of the staff! She thanked us for being “the best storage place she’s ever been to,” and said goodbye to each of us. We love it when people stop to talk story with us or just let us know what they like about us!

Moving Van Rental for the New Year

We love it when people in the Dillingham area come to us for a moving van rental.  If they live in the area, it’s a much shorter drive to get here and hence it might be a shorter time that they will have the van out for!  

Kim’s Moving Van Rental in January

We just had Kim call us in the beginning of January for a moving van.  He’s just down the street from us and since that call he’s come in each week to rent a van.  We know that moving can be a stressful process, and it’s much easier with a van because you’re taking less trips between the two locations.  It’s more efficient, and if you have someone helping you, it can be a faster process overall. Sometimes when moving, it can take a few weeks to get all your things transported and finally settled.  This is why people tend to come back for several weeks in ranting vans because it takes a while to get all the moving finally done. Luckily here at Dilly Rentals, you can rent a van out as many times as you want, we don’t have an individual customer limit!

March of Dimes Truck Rental

Big events can benefit from the help of a truck rental. It’s cheaper, faster and easier to transport items on a large vehicle. Santa’s helpers will make less trips, using less people and less gas. It’s an efficient strategy to pack it into one large van instead of multiple small cars.

March of Dimes Truck Rental

March of Dimes celebrated their 80th anniversary in November 2018 and needed a van for the weekend of the gala. A representative from the non profit, Carmella, called us to make reservations for a van. She had used our van rental services before and told us she was always happy with the product, so she came back to us this second time around.  

Mahalo!

It makes us so happy when our vehicles are used for big events for a great cause, like for March of Dimes. The nonprofit organization works to improve the health of mothers and babies so to prevent infant mortality and birth defects.

Holiday Van Rentals

Van rentals are popular during the holidays because of the holiday parties and events. Many local restaurants and organizations put on “Lunch with Santa” events that are popular for young families and small keiki. Transporting all of the items is easily accomplished with the help of a van rental.

Will’s Thanksgiving Rental

Will called us in early November to reserve a van for Friday Nov. 23, the weekend of Thanksgiving. He called far in advance for the reservation so we could assure him an allocated van for him on that day. However, as the days approached Nov. 23, we realized that the office would be closed on that day in observance of the holiday! We had forgotten to record a phone number on file for Will and could not notify him of the conflict. Luckily, Will called us a week in advance and we were able to tell him about it then. We were relieved that he called us! To rectify the conflict, we allowed him to come in on Wednesday before Thanksgiving and check out the van. We only charged him for a single day’s use.

See You Next Time!

Will was very nice and accommodating. When we emailed him the final receipt, he assured us that he was happy with the van and would contact us in the future if he ever needed another one!

Furniture Moving Van Rental

If you need a moving van rental, you might need a furniture dolly as well. We rent these out and have a few to choose form that are only $7.00 a day. When moving large pieces of furniture, it can be helpful to have a dolly to do the job. You don’t want to strain your back moving furniture!

Moving Van Rental with Furniture Dolly

We had someone call in and ask to rent a dolly for the day without picking up a van as well, and that’s fine, too. He didn’t need a van, just the dolly. He came back within a few hours to pick up the dolly and mentioned how great it was during the move. We allow customers to rent a dolly without a van, because we know they are so useful!

If you have questions about renting a dolly or how to use one, feel free to call and ask!

Truck Rental Saves the Business

Chanh was in search of a truck rental for his restaurant. His restaurant has a company truck that usually does the job however, it was in need of repairs and it was in the shop for the time being. Hence, they needed a truck rental.

Returning Customer

Chanh was actually a storage tenant who moved out last year. We were familiar with him and know that English isn’t his first language. He feels comfortable coming back to us because we can communicate with him and he’s familiar with us. It’s nice to know that our customers feel comfortable with us. 

Truck Rental Needs for Next Week

After using the truck rental, he returned the following week to check it out again. And then kept coming back in the weeks following! Apparently the company truck is expected to be in the shop for a while so he planned on using our truck rentals to get the job done in the time being. Love to have you Chanh, see you next week!

Big Event Van Rentals

A van rental can be useful for big events that require transportation of large items such as chairs and tables. For example, Athena was having a family reunion on the opposite side of the island and wanted to take everything in one load. Athena wanted to avoid making multiple trips from her house to the campsite hence she preferred to use a van rental to get the job done. 

Pleasant Surprise for a Van Rental

She inquired about renting our cargo van for a week and we had an opening for the dates she needed!

When she returned the following week to hand in the van, she commented on how nice, clean and new the van was and how easy it was for her to drive it. She was pleasantly surprised! After talking with her, she commented that she drove more than she expected to. Athena described the camping experience and was so glad she rented a van for the reunion. It was a big help.

We love hearing stories about happy customers and their fun adventures! It’s a relief to hear when people find ease in maneuvering our trucks. It makes us feel better about renting them out to people!

Graduation Season Van Rental

A van rental can come in handy during graduation season. It can be cumbersome to transport large, heavy items for graduation parties like tables, chairs and equipment. A van rental would expedite the process. Given that the van has a greater capacity than the average sedan, that will reduce the number of trips between locations to transport everything.   

Graduation Party

Stephen needed a van for the coming weekend for his son’s graduation party. He had just graduated high school and they needed to move things to the house for the party. He had actually rented a Uhaul van from us a few years ago. We recognized him when he stopped by to pick up the van!

Van Rental for the Big Day

Within 10 minutes from his arrival, we had his van ready to go – paperwork and everything. We were talking story with him in the mean time and that’s when we recognized him from a few years ago! He was happy with his service back then and decided to return.

We’re glad that our van was a part of their big fun day – congratulations to the new high school graduate!

Past Storage Unit Tenants Visit us for Dilly Rentals

Ola was a storage unit tenant with us for a long time – 2 years! His business, We Are More in Maui specializes in safety and security solutions for home and business spaces. His storage unit was helpful in operating his business. We have several business customers that use a storage space to help run their business.

Stay in Touch with Us!

He recently vacated his space with us last year and moved out. We still keep in touch with him on how the business is going. In fact, he recently stopped by to reserve a storage van with us while he was on O’ahu!

Storage tenants who leave Dillingham Self Storage tend to visit us again when in need of other services – like printing or storage vans. It’s nice to see old faces and stay in touch with their new happenings.

Traveling Businesses

Ola travels a lot between the islands, but the business is centered in Maui. When he was visiting O’ahu and needed a van, we were happy that he made us his first choice. He rented the cargo van for a week and it came in handy for his jobs while on the island.

See you again, Ola!

Thanks for stopping by Ola and we hope to see you again!
