The Importance of Security in Self-Storage Units

Storage houses have become extremely popular. People have started to downsize their homes or simply leave homes for better apartments and villas. What does one look for when he signs up with a storage company, apart from storage space, it is security. After all, what use is a unit if it cannot promise you safety? Beirut has several units and different facilities offer different security measures. It is your duty to check and verify whether you are getting what you want or at least what you were promised. Let us get a detailed explanation about various secure self-storage units to help you find the perfect facility for your specific needs and requirements.

  • Locks: When you say security, it need not necessarily mean surveillance cameras. It is beyond that. An individual lock is vital with a unique key. Most services either give you a lock; or permit you to bring one yourself. This is because no one other than the rightful owner is allowed inside. Thus, it can be said, a lock is one of the most crucial security features in a self-storage.
  •  Surveillance cameras: Another extremely vital feature of a storeroom. It is a hidden weapon when there is no one around. A surveillance camera can help keep record of everything that is going around. It is indeed one of the best security solutions you can get. However, make sure it is working!
  • Security guards or managers: You need someone who is there on duty 24*7. They may work in shifts, but at least you have secure services. After all, you trust the storage company with your valuables. The managers and security guards can guard the self-storage unit and you can be at absolute peace.
  • Material of the building: An idyllic unit should be made up of concrete. Since concrete can last much longer than any other material used. Avoid units that have wood or metal as the wood can rot, and crude metal can easily rust and decay. Concrete will only need some fixing from time to time without damaging anything. Thus, look for a material that is durable.

Make sure the contract you sign puts forward satisfactory coverage for your items that provide you safety and security.
