How secure is self storage?

Self storage offers a really affordable and easy solution to issues around lack of space.  Many people – individuals and businesses – rely on self storage for keeping their valuables safe.  So, how safe are they, really?

Well, self storage is generally seen as a fairly secure solution, but this will vary depending on the company that you use.

Ask any storage company what security arrangements they have in place.  This often may include CCTV, alarms, key-coded security gate, padlocks, and security patrols.  Don’t be afraid to enquire about their past security record – have they had any break-ins?

At The Space Program, we are very proud of our 100% security record.  When you use our self storage, you pay one price which includes the hire of a secure padlock and £20,000 insurance.  You have easy and safe 24/7 access to your unit via the key-coded gate.  For added security, you are the only person with access to your container  (so, please take care of your keys!).

If you would like to know more, please get in touch.  We are always happy to help.
