  • The Benefits of 24-Hour Access to Your Storage Unit
    By Sarah Little on May 10, 2011 | 104 Comments104 Comments  Comments

    A number of years ago, a film hit dedicated to the working man (or in this case woman) hit theaters.  It was called “9 to 5” and it told the unusual story of three woman working very mundane office jobs.  The title comes from the stereotype that a “normal” job begins at nine in the morning and finishes at five in the afternoon.  Now most stereotypes derive from some measure of truth.  Many people do work jobs that primarily (or exclusively) involved working day time hours during week days.  However, many people also work on a less traditional schedule.  For them the business day doesn’t coincide with the rising and setting of the sun.  If this more accurately describes your lifestyle, you might consider the benefits of renting storage from a facility that allows customers to access their storage units 24 hours a day.

    Not all storage facilities allow for 24-hour access (not even every StorageMart facility features 24-hour access), so you might have to do some calling around to find a facility that does and is also conveniently located for you.  Could you make do with a storage unit you can only access during those 9 to 5 hours?  Sure you could, but consider the alternative.

    There isn’t any hidden meaning to the term 24-hour access.  It means simply that; you can access your storage facility at any point during the day.  If you work the graveyard shift at a factory and want to grab something from your storage unit on the way to work…you can.  If operate a business like a night club or a hotel that caters to customers at night and you need to access stored stock items immediately…it’s not a problem.  Even if you do operate under a more traditional schedule, you may not want to rush over to your storage unit before or after work (or even on your lunch break).  Renting a storage unit you can access at any time is simply more convenient in every way.

    One fear you might have accessing your storage unit at night is the lack of natural protection provided by daylight.  Statistically, more crimes take place at night.  If you rent from a StorageMart facility you need not be worried.  Our facilities with 24-hour access provide the same network of security available for customers who access our property during the day.  Perimeter fencing and PIN controlled gate access restrict our properties to our clientele only.  Renting drive-up storage allows you to pull your car right up to your unit, preventing you from carrying your belongings across an empty lot.  Video surveillance is 24 hours a day at our properties, providing yet another layer of security.  As for the natural protection of daylight…well our lots are so well lit you’d be forgiven for thinking the sun never sets on a StorageMart facility. 

    It seems like every day, week, month and year our lives get a little more busy, everything moves just a little bit faster.  We need convenience where we can find it.  If you’re renting a storage unit, finding one you can access 24 hours a day will provide a nice little bit of relief.
