A Safe and Secure Storage Unit

  • Do you feel that your possessions are protected? Many people have security alarms for their home, up grade their door locks with dead bolts and key pad locks for their front doors, and security locks on the windows. We do everything we can to keep not only our family safe but our possessions as well. With home insurance we even have the knowledge that if something happens to your home you will be able to replace your stuff.

    What about when you have stuff stored outside of your home? Don’t you want to make sure that just like your stuff is protected at your home it is additionally protected outside of the home in a self storage unit as well? Here are some ways that your self storage stuff can be protected just like your belongings in your home:

    • Just like a front door lock a storage facility that has good security has either a gate with a personal access code or a key pad on the entry door with each renter having their own door code. This ensures that the only ones who are in the storage facility are the people who have a rental unit there. You don’t let everyone you know have a house key to your front door and at a storage facility only those that are suppose to be there have access. With each person having their own access code there is additional security so that there is not just one code for everyone to get in.
    • At your house you have things like dead-bolts and secure door locks. You have locks on your door to try and keep people out. At your self storage unit you want to pick a strong lock. Disc locks are most often recommended for security to your storage unit. A good strong lock on your storage unit door will help insure that no one gets in without the key.
    • Another good safety measure of a storage facility is having video surveillance. This monitors who is going in and out of the location as an extra precautionary measure to keeping your stuff safe and secure.
    • Alarms add an additional layer of protection to your possessions. These can alert the manager to any problems on the premises.

    As you can see a sign of a good secure storage facility is similar to a secure and safe home environment. We do everything we can to ensure that our belongings are protected in our home, and you want to make sure that anywhere that you choose to store your belongings outside the home has security measures as well.  So when you are searching for where to rent a self storage unit look at these features when making your decision. Talk to the manager of the facility to see what they offer their tenants to make sure that their belongings are safe. Safety and security should be on the top of your list for things that you require from a storage facility. Once you find a location that has good security you can store your belongings and not have to worry about them. Self storage does not have to be a cause of stress if you find the right location. A little research of the locations in your area will make sure you make the right choice.
