If you are someone who has never used self-storage, it can be daunting renting a unit for the first time, especially if you are unsure of how secure they really are. However, we are here to put any worries that you have at ease. 

When it comes to self-storage, you want to ensure that your items are as protected as possible. Ways to ensure that your belongings are kept safe and secure are:

Check The Storage Company Has A Surveillance System 

The majority of storage companies should have an up-to-date surveillance system but always double-check and see what systems they have in place. At Self Storage Tameside, we have over 200 CCTV cameras, high-security fencing, and a modern red care alarm system, we have staff on site 7 days a week so if you have any enquiries or worries at all, our staff are on-site to help with your storage needs.

Look For A Well-Lit, Secure Facility

It is a good idea to shop around for a storage company, you do not only want a storage company that is close and convenient for you but a company that provides enough safety. When it comes to searching for the best storage company for you, look for a fully fenced building that has both interior and exterior lighting. The storage staff are there to help you and help you feel secure when storing your belongings so feel free to ask them questions such as are staff and tenants the only ones with access to the units? Is an access code required? What security measures do you have in place? You are entitled to ask these kinds of questions before you rent a storage unit in order for you to feel more comfortable and secure. 

Regular Maintenance

When searching for a storage facility you will want to look for a well-maintained storage company that is clean and regularly inspected. If you notice broken locks or fencing etc, the chances are that burglars will notice this too. It doesn’t hurt to ask the staff at the storage facility what measures they have in place.
