When you choose to rent storage units for your business, keeping your items
secure is essential. Use the following tips to help ensure better
security for your business’s storage unit.
Limit Personnel Access
One of the best things that you can do to protect your business and your
stored belongings is to limit the number of people who have access to
your storage units. The fewer employees that can get into the unit, the
smaller your chance of having to deal with internal theft or similar problems.
Choose a select few who require access to the stored items to help reduce
the likelihood of anything being stolen, lost, or misplaced.
Protect Your Keys
Once you decide which individuals will have access to the storage units,
instruct them to keep their keys in a safe place, and not to label them
with either the facility’s address or the storage unit’s number.
This measure is essential for keeping your merchandise safe in case anyone’s
key was to fall into the wrong hands.
Lock It Well
Although it can be tempting to reach for a low-cost lock to use on your
storage unit, investing in a high-quality one is well worth the cost.
Better locks create a stronger barrier of protection for your stored belongings.
Choose Storage Insurance
If you want to enjoy peace of mind when it comes to the safety of your
stored merchandise, then consider getting insurance for your storage unit.
This service lets you rest easy knowing that even if something were to
happen to your belongings in storage, that losses or damage could be covered
by your policy. Insuring your stored items adds a level of protection
against the unpredictable.
