What to Look for in a Good Storage Building

When you are looking for a self-storage facility you want to pay close attention to the storage building that you will be storing your belongings in.  There are several aspects to a good storage building that you should look for, which we will discuss today. Good Lighting You want to ensure that there is good lighting around the outside of the storage facility as well as inside the building.  Good lighting will deter thieves and vandals and will make it safer for you to move your belongings in and out of your storage unit during the night time.  Good lighting inside the storage building will enhance

safety and make moving items easier.One Floor or Good Elevator Access Ideally, you want to find a storage facility that has just one floor so that you don't need to move your items up stairs or wait in line to use an elevator.  If the building does have multiple levels then ensure there is more than one elevator and that you don't have to wait to use it. Security Features You want to ensure that the storage facility you choose has a number of security features in order to keep your items safe, such as:

  • 24 hour video surveillance
  • Electronic gates or a gate with a pass code
  • On-site staff who will perform facility checks
  • Alarm systems

Convenient Location and Hours When you choose a storage facility keep in mind that you want a place that is close to your home and that has hours that are convenient and coincide with your personal schedule.  For example, if you work a night shift then it would be nice to have a storage facility that is open 24/7 so you are not limited as to when you can access your belongings. Choosing the right storage building requires a little research and investigation. Ensure that the facility you choose is well equipped and has the features you are looking for.
