Inside the Fresh Start of Jack Hwang

CubeSmart customer Jack Hwang and his daughter at the facility in Centennial, CO

This is one of a series of stories we are sharing to show what's inside CubeSmart. You not only get a peek inside our customer's storage unit, but also a peek inside what is important to them. Thank you to Jack Hwang, a customer of our CubeSmart store in Centennial, CO, for sharing his story with us.

When we say Jack Hwang is a new CubeSmart customer at our store in Centennial, CO, we mean really new.

"I've been a customer for about 14 hours," he says.

As for why Jack decided to rent a CubeSmart storage unit? He's transitioning between houses and waiting on his new home purchase to be finalized before he can move all of his things into it.

"I needed somewhere to store furniture, kitchen items, household goods, and clothing in the holding period before the new house closes," he says. "This CubeSmart location is convenient to where I live and where I'm going to move to."

He also mentions that cleanliness, organization, and friendliness of the staff are all of great benefit.

"Everything has been really easy. I booked online and used a promotion, all of which was very straightforward and went very smoothly," he says.

Jack, a Colorado resident for more than two decades, works in telecommunications and lives with his three children and a cat. He tells us he's most passionate about his children, along with hobbies including skiing, woodworking, and tennis.

Right now, though? Right now, he's most focused on the upcoming transition – and all the positives it will bring.

"Moving into a new house and having a new start is really exciting," he says as his daughter, Mélíane, laughs and stretches her legs on the floor in the background.

"Dad," she calls out. "I think I've lost some of my flexibility."

As they both stand up to finish unloading, Jack turns and says proudly of his self-storage helper, "She's a second-degree black belt."

We'd love to hear how self-storage has positively impacted your life. Share your #HumansofSelfStorage story in the comments.
