Posted By Justin Small on Apr 03, 2023 :: 0 Comments :: Back To Press Releases

Today, we're going to talk about an important topic that is near and dear to all self storage customers: physical security measures.

As a customer, you want to know that your belongings are safe and secure when you store them in a self storage facility. That's why it's important for the self storage industry to take physical security measures seriously.

So, what are some of the physical security measures that self storage facilities use to keep your belongings safe?

First and foremost, most self storage facilities use sturdy, secure locks on each unit. These locks are designed to be tamper-resistant and difficult to pick, ensuring that only the authorized customer has access to their unit.

In addition to locks, many facilities also use security cameras to monitor the premises. These cameras can help deter theft and provide valuable evidence in the event of a break-in.

Another common physical security measure is on-site staff. Having staff on site can help ensure that the facility is being monitored and that any suspicious activity is immediately reported to the authorities.

Some facilities may also use perimeter fencing, electronic gates, and access control systems to further enhance security. These measures can help prevent unauthorized access to the property and ensure that only customers with valid access codes can enter the facility.

Finally, many self storage facilities also have insurance policies in place to protect customers in the event of theft, damage, or other unforeseen circumstances. Be sure to ask your facility about their insurance policies and what kind of coverage is available to you.

At the end of the day, physical security measures are an important part of the self storage industry. By taking security seriously, facilities can give customers peace of mind and protect their valuable belongings. If you're in the market for a self storage unit, be sure to ask about the physical security measures in place at any facility you're considering.
