Self-Storage: how do I know my possessions are safe?
Do you need more space at home or in the office? You should consider putting your goods in to self- storage. A self-storage facility is a place to store your items in a secure location offsite from your residence or business where your items will be kept safe until you require them. With self access storage you should be able to gain access to your items during the facilities opening hours, some are even 24 hours a day dependent upon your needs.
However, leaving your items in an unfamiliar place may not be appealing to you, how do you know they will be safe? It is important you think about a few things before choosing the right facility. Look at the premises, do they look secure, do they have perimeter fencing and working CCTV? Look at their admissions policy, who has access to the building or self-storage units apart from authorised personnel?
Your items should be kept secure and private, they should be locked with your own personal padlock with your personal key. This means only you, or an authorised individual you have specified to your self-storage facility should be able to enter the unit and have access to your goods. It is also important to look at the facilities health and safety and fire regulations to ensure they are meeting the needed standards to prevent dirt, water or fire damage to your goods.
Get a second opinion – ask for customer testimonials or see if there is anyone in the facility to give you their opinion on the facilities service to you!
If you have positive answers from the previous questions – your items should be in good hands!
