Security is a key concern when leaving your belongings at a storage site. Inspect any storage facility's security features, and ask a lot of questions. Are there access gates, good lighting, and heavy-duty fences? ln addition to yourself, who will be given a key to your facility? Monitored burglar alarm systems may be used as an added safety feature. A monitored alarm assures you that any breaks in security can have an immediate response. Be sure to ask the storage company what safety features, including monitored alarms, are available.
