Public Storage Near Me: What to Look For To Have The Best Experience
Rock-Solid Storage You Can Trust
When considering which storage facility to utilize for your valuable belongings, it can seem like there is an almost endless number of options. Of course, no storage facility is going to point out their weaknesses, only their strengths, which can make it difficult to know what’s truly important when thinking about which storage facility to choose. Fortunately, if you know what to look for, the storage facilities that are truly worth the price you pay will quickly stand out.
Of course, security has to be the number one priority when considering a storage facility. After all, if your belongings aren’t secure, you might as well just leave them on the side of the road with a neon sign that says “free.” However, security at a storage facility doesn’t just encompass the security of your belongings, though that’s certainly an important aspect of it. Security at a storage facility also means ensuring your security and safety whenever you’re picking up or dropping off items at that facility.
On the belonging side, consider the quality of the locks on the storage unit. Are they provided by the facility, or will you need to provide your own? How do the doors and latches look on the individual units? Do they look newer, or at least in good repair, or are they rusty and difficult to open?
Beyond these features, every other feature you inspect should be considered as both a security feature for your belongings and for yourself. A good storage facility should have bright lighting. This isn’t just to deter criminals during the wee hours of the morning, it’s also to ensure you have plenty of light to be safe when you go to the facility during the winter when it gets dark early.
Another important feature is the presence of cameras. These cameras will catch any criminals who attempt to break-in and steal your belongings, but will also deter criminals from harming you while you’re utilizing your unit. Make sure there are cameras that can capture every angle of the facility, not just the front gate where people enter and exit.
Speaking of the front gate, make sure that it automatically closes after every vehicle has entered. If it stays open too long, it would be extremely easy for another vehicle to enter behind you, a vehicle with a driver who likely has nefarious intentions. Make sure the keypad to open the gate is shielded from view of any nearby parking lots or public roads so your key code, or that of any other facility user, can’t be stolen.
Ease of Access
Another important consideration that concerns you and your belongings is the ease with which you can access your unit. A good storage facility will have adequate drainage for even the most torrential downpours to ensure your stuff stays safe and dry but also so you don’t unexpectedly drive into deep water while you’re navigating around the facility.
Another factor is the ways in which access roads for an outdoor unit or walkways for an indoor unit are maintained and sized. Access points should be wide enough to fit large items comfortably without having to put your body at odd or dangerous angles. Additionally, these access points should be well-maintained to ensure you don’t experience any accidental slips, trips, or falls.
