Are Storage Units Secure?

The purpose of a self storage unit is to take the clutter out of your own home, garage, warehouse, or office. But it’s equally important—of course—that your belongings be stored securely and safely from damage.

You want your storage unit to be a place you feel comfortable visiting whether it’s light or dark out. You want to be able to access your belongings easily—and without any worries at all as to their safety or your own.

You’re paying, after all, for ideal storage conditions. Here’s how to make sure you get them.

Are Self Storage Units Safe?

There are a few specific things to look for when choosing a storage unit, including the following:

• Is the unit well lit? No matter how safe a location may be, dark corners and shadows make everyone feel uncomfortable. Before you chose a storage unit, take a walk around the facility and make sure that the entire location is well lit.
• Does the facility offer clean, temperature-controlled units? You want to make sure your items are safe from damage and deterioration while being stored.
• Are there 24-hour surveillance cameras? These are obviously a huge deterrent for anyone looking to cause trouble. Make sure any facility you’re considering has them.
• Does the facility use locks or a keypad entry? Almost any kind of lock can be picked. What’s more, many of us know how easy it can be to misplace a key or forget to bring it with you.
