When you place items into self storage, you want to know that they are safe and secure.

Tips for Storing Items Securely

In addition to selecting a storage facility with onsite security measures, there are a few additional ways in which you can protect your belongings in self storage.

  • When storing items for your business, limit the number of employees with access to your storage facility. The fewer individuals with access to your self storage unit, the lower the chances that something will be lost, misplaced, or stolen.
  • Keep the keys to your storage unit in a safe place to prevent theft. Never label the key itself with the address and number of your storage unit, as this could lead a thief right to your property. If you have a second key, give it to a trusted friend or family member in case your key becomes lost or stolen—if your keys are stolen, change your storage unit’s lock immediately.
  • Investing in a high-quality lock for your storage space is well worth the money. Although there is plentiful onsite security at your storage facility, a good lock will provide an added layer of protection for the items inside your mini storage unit.

Why Onsite Security Matters

As homes and businesses increase their onsite security measures, self storage theft remains a concern. In 2012, seven percent of storage facilities in the U.S. suffered a break-in. While this number represents a decrease from previous years, the fact remains that self storage theft can still occur. Storage facilities with poor or no security measures present a more appealing target to thieves, who will pass by a storage facility that has taken several proactive steps to prevent unauthorized access to the site and individual storage units. Simple solutions such as modern lighting, security patrols, visible video surveillance, building alarms, and controlled facility access all work together to create a safety net for your belongings so you can maintain peace of mind while they are in self storage.
