Personal items in a storage unit are oftentimes very important to the owner.
Even if these items are not able to fit in one’s home, they are
treasured nonetheless. If these items get stolen from the storage unit,
it can be both frustrating and heartbreaking for the owner.
Storage units near Manhattan are a great way to place all of the items that do not fit into your New
York City apartment, but it is also important to ensure the safety of
your stored belongings. Read on to learn how to ensure the safety of your unit.
Choose a Safe Storage Facility
The first step you can make to ensure your item’s safety is choosing
the right storage facility. If it is available to you, visiting the facility
is your best option. Be sure to do your research about each facility and
ask any questions you may have about their security measures. While on
site or over the phone, one should ask how well-lit the area is at night
and during the day, as this can help hamper the possibility of a break-in.
Also, be sure to see if your facility has an alarm system and a relationship
with the local police station.
Arrange Your Items Safely
The way you arrange your items in the storage unit can help to protect
your most important and cherished items. If you have high-value treasures
stored in your unit, be sure to place them in the very back. When you
place these items in the back, a thief will not be able to grab them quickly
and get away.
