3 Key Characteristics to Look for in a Self-Storage Facility, Anchorage, Alaska

To the untrained eye, many self-storage facilities may seem to resemble each other. But the diligent consumer can untangle key differences when weighing one company against another. One of the best practices is to have a list of criteria to check for as you begin the searching and vetting process.

Here is what you should expect from a top self-storage facility:

  • 24-Hour Access: When you have your belongings in a self-storage unit, it’s important you can access them anytime you want. If there is a limited schedule, it could be an inconvenience if you can’t pick up items when you need them. With 24-hour access, you’ll never have to worry about having to coordinate your schedule to retrieve or deposit items.
  • self-storageReliable Security: While easy accessibility is paramount, access to your unit should be for you and you alone. For peace of mind, look for a facility with staff members on hand every day and surveillance cameras to keep the area secure. Before you make a decision, ask prospective companies to detail all the measures they go to keep your storage unit safe.
  • Climate Control: You want your possessions kept in a clean and well-maintained environment. Climate-controlled units will keep your items free of mold as well of any damage that can come from excessive heat or cold, such as warping.
