Are Storage Units Safe?
Are storage units safe? At the right facility, yes! We know there are plenty of concerns when it comes to storage units, so we’re here to address those concerns and give you some peace of mind.
What to look for in a storage unit to ensure the safety of your belongings:
- Locked elevator floors (if applicable)
- Gates (if applicable)
- Employee(s) on premises
What you can do for some additional security:
- Purchase a good lock – one that’s resistant to tampering and bolt cutters
- Take inventory of your items prior to storing them
- Update your inventory as you add or remove items
- Purchase storage insurance
- Know what’s covered by insurance and don’t store items that aren’t! This includes cash and some valuables such as jewelry
- Consider climate-controlled units which are located inside of buildings, typically with extra protection
- Try to only visit your unit during the day, specifically when employees are on the premises
- Don’t give out your access code or key
- Don’t advertise where you’re storing your items
