Security at Your Storage Center

Storing your prized heirlooms at a storage center can be a little bit nerve-wracking if you don’t pick an adequate storage facility.  You probably go to great lengths to keep the items in your home safe from theft or destruction.  A self-storage center should be able to offer you the same level of comfort as your home, as far as possession security goes. 

Security at mini-storage facilities can vary from a basic alarm system to a state-of-the-art biometrics system.  Below are some of the more common security features you should look for before you storage your possessions.

General Alarm System – A good alarm system can be monitored or unmonitored by onsite security.  It might also be hooked into the local police system.  Check to see if the alarm system is a system wide setup or if each storage unit has its own alarm. 

Fire and Smoke Detectors – These devices can help save your prized possessions from a dangerous situation.  Ask if each unit has a device or if they are installed in the hallway.  You should also only choose a self-storage center that bans smoking on the property to prevent any unnecessary false alarms.

Cameras – A CCTV camera can do a lot to deter potential thieves.  See if your storage facility has set up CCTV cameras and ask where they are located.  You will definitely want to see one at the main entrance which should also be a restricted access entrance.  This means every customer is checked before they are allowed to enter to make sure they are a current customer and have business going into the mini-storage units.

At Chelsea Mini Storage, we take security very seriously.  As America’s largest self storage center, we understand the concern customers have with selecting a secure mini-storage.  We have a state-of-the-art computerized alarm system, security guards located around the facility, and an on-site resident manager.  If you have any questions or concerns about security, contact our storage facility today.

6 Items Frequently Kept At a Storage Center

Clutter is a major problem in American households.  Rather than getting rid of your treasured possessions, consider renting out a self-storage space.  A storage facility can give you a convenient home-away-from-home for your extra things. 

But what exactly should you store at a storage center?

Check out these 6 items that are frequently kept at storage centers:

  1. Holiday Decorations: No need to keep the Christmas box in the hall closet all year.  You can store the decorations and just pull them out of self-storage once a year.
  2. Children’s Old Art Projects: Old crayon drawings, your child’s first homework, school awards… you probably want to hold on to every scrap of paper they bring home.  They will no doubt appreciate having a few treasured items when then are older.
  3. Furniture: If you have recently moved, then you may find that your old furniture doesn’t quite fit in your new space.  A storage facility can store the items until you need them, instead of you having to sell the furniture and then buy it again when you need it.
  4. Heirlooms: Your grandmother’s old grandfather clock might not fit in your new home or with your current interior design, but there is no reason to get rid of such a treasured item.  Store the item unit you have the space to display it in your home.
  5. Collections: Maybe your wife isn’t such a big fan of your comic collection or your husband doesn’t understand the fascination with porcelain dolls.  You can use mini storage to store these items until you decide to sell them off or convince your partner that they really do have value.
  6. Luggage: Many families have multiple pieces of luggage for their yearly vacations.  If the luggage isn’t being used more than once or twice a year, why have it stuffed in the bottom of your already full closet.  You can even store out-of-season clothes in the luggage before you take them to your self-storage unit.

Storage Concerns? What to Consider When Choosing a Storage Facility

We all have items—large things like TVs or small things like letters—that we want to hold on to but don’t have the space to store them.  You might have just moved into a smaller home or maybe added a new baby to your family; either way, you’re probably struggling to find room. 

You have two options: clutter up your house with all the extra stuff or rent a self-storage space

A storage facility can give you a convenient place to store your holiday decorations, old high school trophies, or some extra furniture that wouldn’t fit into your current place. 

Before you choose a storage facility, however, check out this list of consideration when choosing a storage center.

  • How much space do you need? To save yourself money, be sure to only rent out the space you need.  See if the storage units have shelves that can help you take advantage of more space.  If you have particularly large items to store, you should measure the unit before signing a lease.
  • Location: How often are you going to need to open your self-storage unit?  If you plan on stopping by every other week or more, you should choose a storage facility close to your home.  If the storage unit is more for long term storage that you wouldn’t need to access other than a few times a year, then you might be able to find a good deal by choosing a storage center farther out of town. 
  • Price: The smaller the unit, the cheaper the price generally, but you should be wary of run-down storage facilities.  Rodents and moisture can ruin what you have stored.  If you are storing sensitive items, you might want to consider climate controlled units.  It might be worth it to spend a little bit more a month on a good storage facility than risk having your items damaged.If you are looking for a storage unit in the New York City area, you should definitely check out Chelsea Mini Storage.  We are one of America’s largest self-storage facility, and we offer some of the lowest prices in Manhattan.  Check out our website for prices and reserve your mini storage today!
