Locking your possessions at a self-storage facility allows you to get clutter out of your home and free up much-needed space. However, you may ask yourself, “Are my belongings safe?” Residents of Anchorage, AK, have turned to International Self Storage for more than 30 years because of their reputation for going the extra mile to keep their facility secure.
Although many companies offer 24-hour access to their storage space, this is not always a good thing. It’s true that you’ll have access to your belongings no matter what time it is, but thieves could as well. Some storage centers offer access around the clock with gate keys. Should a tenant give their key to someone else, your property could be at risk. This is particularly the case if there is no manager or security officer on duty during overnight hours. To keep all their units safe, International Self Storage has coded gates, security cameras, and limited access from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m.
A heated storage unit is another option worth considering when choosing a self-storage facility because certain items should be kept in a warmer environment. If subjected to the cold Alaska climate, these items, which include precious family heirlooms, paintings, books, and electronics, can be damaged.
The best way to ensure your belongings are safe is taking a tour of the facility before signing the lease. Note the condition of the units, the locks, and the presence of security cameras and personnel. Not all security facilities are the same, so do your homework.
If you’re seeking the safest place for your belongings, reach out to International Self Storage. They’ll be more than happy to discuss all of the features of their secure environment. Call them at (907) 563-3287 for more information, or visit them online.
