How secure are self-storage units?

When it comes to storing your lifetime worth of personal belongings, you don’t want to make any compromises on keeping them safe in a storage unit.

There are many storage units out there, but one thing you really need to be careful of is their security setup. Most companies may not offer 24/7 security surveillance, so there is a chance your items could be at risk.

We’ve listed a few key questions you need to ask before booking your unit.

  • Are the cameras recording 24/7?
  • Is the gate electronic access?
  • What days/hours can I access my unit?
  • Do you charge any additional fees for security?
