Ask About Accessibility

If there is a limit to how many times you can access your own belongings, this could be something that understandably puts you off going with that particular firm. Do you need to access outside of normal business hours? If so you need a facility that provides this option. All our units are fully accessible 24/7.

Think About Safety

Lots of people use storage facilities because they are often extremely secure. Rather than keeping very valuable items in their own home and risk losing them to a break-in or fire damage, some people decide to put them in storage. So, when you are researching different storage facilities, it’s worth asking about security measures. At the very least, they need to have burglar alarms in place. CCTV and around-the-clock staff will also be big bonuses as well. It’s also worth making sure that the storage facilities have some fire-proof measures in place as well so that you don’t have to worry about fires damaging any valuables.
