At the Lock Up, we know just how important your valuables are to you. When you entrust your items to us, we promise to go above and beyond to make sure they’re safe. Unfortunately, some self storage companies don’t necessarily feel the same way, and their lack of simple precautions lead to theft and property damage. If you’re comparing storage facilities, look at their security features to make sure that they have:
- Electronic coded access
- Security camera monitoring
- Motion sensitive lighting
- Smoke detectors
While all of these elements are important, many people are surprised to find that the storage facility they’re considering skimps on one or more of these crucial safety features. At the Lock Up, we’ve invested in all of these features to help give our clients a strong sense of security. For more information about the security features in our storage facilities across the country, call us today at (866) 327-LOCK.
Even if your storage facility is secure, you shouldn’t let your guard down. Whenever you’re transporting valuables, make sure you stay safe by bringing a friend or family member. When creating your code for entry, you’ll want to think of one that isn’t tied to anything else in your life. Be careful about who you give your code to, and change it occasionally to prevent theft from someone you thought you could trust.
Finally, since you’re investing in a storage unit to protect your valuables, it only makes sense to spend a few extra dollars each month on insurance. Disasters can happen at even the most secure storage facilities, and if your stored items aren’t insured, there’s always a chance their value could be destroyed in a matter of minutes. At most storage facilities, you’ll have the option of purchasing insurance when you rent your unit. You also have the option of taking out extra protection through your renter’s or homeowner’s insurance.
