Inside the Street Cruising of Tomas Rodriguez

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 Tomas Rodriquez, a customer of our CubeSmart store in Dallas, for sharing his story with us.

If it’s above 65 degrees in Dallas, chances are you will find Tomas Rodriguez cruising the streets on his motorcycle.

During prime riding season, Tomas is on his bike at least four times a week, if not more! Riding his motorcycle is his pride and joy after all. One look at his bike shows just how well he takes care of it. It's a motorcycle that looks sparkling clean and in mint condition.

His motorcycle is just one of many items that Tomas stores in his CubeSmart unit at the 501 Highway 121 Bypass location in Lewisville, Texas. But there is no denying, it's the most important one. He is up there on his days off (Fridays and Saturdays) to get his motorcycle ready for the next ride. It takes a lot of work to keep his bike in prime condition.

“When changing the oil and filter, I put down cloth so to not make a mess,” says Tomas. “I keep everything very clean.”

Tomas is no stranger to cleaning. During the week he works at the Nestle Warehouse keeping that space in mint condition just like his bike. Before working there, Tomas spent many years cleaning offices and schools.  He enjoys the work and feels a strong sense of pride with keeping things in order.

Even though Tomas doesn’t live close to his storage unit, he still comes by to check on things. The staff is friendly and he likes to be able to stop in whenever he wants. More importantly, Tomas likes to come to CubeSmart to get his motorcycle ready for the next ride.

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