Tips for Keeping Your Storage Unit Safe and Secure

How to keep your storage unit safe and secure

The thought of storing belongings in a self-storage facility can be concerning for many. It’s understandable – you are moving your personal items, with some possibly holding sentimental and/or monetary value, to a place where you will not be able to monitor them 24/7. At Storage City, we’re here to not only provide safe, secure facilities for your self-storage needs, but to also offer tips on further protecting your belongings from damage or theft.

Below are some common threats to storage units and tips for keeping your storage unit safe and secure:


The most important aspect to consider when protecting your items from theft is to choose a reputable, secure storage unit facility. All of Storage City’s facilities are fenced in and secured by a gate with code-entry access, as well as kept well-lit and security-patrolled for maximum safety and security. We take pride in offering storage unit options that allow you to rest assured that your belongings are safe and the property is monitored.

There are additional measures you can take to further safeguard your items against theft:


At Storage City, we have rules against the storage of flammable items, as well as monitor our facilities around the clock to catch any emergencies as soon as they arise. However, it is still good to keep in mind some tips for keeping your unit protected from fire damage:

Mold or Mildew

Humidity can wreak havoc on your belongings and cause irreversible damage from mold and mildew. To prevent this, opt for a climate-controlled storage unit that regulates temperature and humidity levels to keep your items safe.

You can also package your items in plastic totes or other moisture-resistant materials instead of cardboard boxes for an additional layer of protection.
