Is Self-Storage Safe and Secure?

Reading Time: 2 minutes

If you are considering storing your belongings at a self-storage facility, you’ll likely want to know what kind of security features are available. No matter what you are storing, you’ll want to discuss secure storage solutions ahead of time.

It’s important to ask about specific safety features.

Here are a few self-storage security features to discuss before you sign a lease:


A very basic feature of self-storage security is good lighting. Whether or not your facility offers 24-hours access (be sure to ask, many facility have specific business hours), ample lighting is an important component of safety.

Door alarms

Individual door alarms are an added degree of security.

Security cameras

There are a variety of cameras that can make up self-storage security systems in use today, including 360-degree views, wireless and motion-activated. You can discuss with your facility the types of security cameras used and how they are monitored.

Secure gate access

Most facilities require tenants to enter a code into a gated keypad entrance to gain access to the facility. Gated access also provides an additional level of security. There are different types of technology involved with gated access so discuss the details with your facility.

Secure building access

In addition to entering a code at the gate, most facilities offer secure building access. For enhanced security, individuals will also enter the code issued by the facility manager to gain entry into the building.

Resident managers

A resident manager actually lives at the facility which provides an additional level of comfort.
