If the property you’re storing in a self-storage
facility is especially valuable, you’ll want to gather information
on the facility’s security measures before making the decision
of whether or not to use their storage services. You may want to find
a facility that offers twenty-four hour security coverage including
security cameras, security alarms, fire alarms, and special access
and entry requirements. Additionally, if the materials you are storing
are sensitive to temperature, humidity, or other variables, ensure
that the facility has the proper safeguards in place to keep your valuables
in their original condition. Although you may have to pay a higher
price for these services, your valuables will be protected better in
a facility with top-notch storage controls.
If you’re storing valuable furs or leather garments during
the summer, climate control will be needed to protect the items
from heat and humidity. Additionally, no bright or direct sunlight
should contact these materials.
