Tips For Choosing Safe Self Storage

When searching for storage facilities, find one that offers safety and security to guarantee the protection of your belongings. Consider the security measures in place at the storage facility and what you will be storing. If you are storing temperature-sensitive items like antiques, choose a climate-controlled storage unit.

Tips When Looking For A Safe Storage Facility


Prioritize facilities with strong security measures. Search for locations with video cameras, gated entry with personalized codes, and regular security checks. These measures deter intruders and make the storage facility safer.


Protect your valuables with appropriate insurance coverage. Ask whether the facility offers insurance options for your stored belongings. Insurance protects you from unexpected events such as theft, fire or natural disasters. Understanding the extent of coverage and any exclusions is essential in making an informed decision about your storage needs.


Invest in a high-quality lock to further secure your storage unit. People prefer disc locks because they resist tampering and require specialized tools to breach. Avoid laminated locks as they are vulnerable to bolt cutters and provide poor protection for your belongings.

Choosing A Safe Storage Unit

Choose a climate controlled storage unit to keep your belongings safe from temperature changes. This type of storage unit is particularly useful for storing items such as wooden furniture, electronics, artwork, and clothing. Maintaining a controlled temperature inside the storage unit will protect your belongings from deterioration and extend their lifespan.

If your stored items are not sensitive to temperature changes, consider an unheated drive-up storage unit. These units are considerably cheaper than indoor storage units.


Have a detailed inventory of store belongings for insurance purposes. Documenting your stored items will keep them organized and help you file an insurance claim.

Create an itemized list with descriptions, photographs, and estimated values of each stored item. Keep this information in a secure location outside the storage unit. Regularly update your inventory list as you add and remove items.

Follow these tips to safeguard your possessions and enjoy peace of mind, knowing they are in secure hands. A safety and security-focused storage facility ensures that it protects your belongings.
