How safe is self-storage?

Entrusting your possessions to a self-storage unit may raise some concerns – after all, you’re storing valuables in an environment that is outside of your home, which may well feel outside of your control. But don’t worry – self-storage providers like Space Station wouldn’t be around for long if we couldn’t keep your valuables safe!

Security is a top priority at Space Station, and we take plenty of precautions to keep your belongings safe. First of all, when you rent one of our units, only you hold the key – we don’t even keep one on site, so there’s no chance of a spare finding its way in to the wrong hands.

All of our staff are uniformed and easily identifiable, so you if need any help or advice, you can recognise us easily. Brightly lit corridors and intercoms, CCTV, alarms, and a round-the-clock security presence will give you peace of mind that we can keep your belongings safe. But don’t just take it from us – come down and see for yourself. We want our customers to be completely confident in the security of our units, and would be happy to show you around.

Wherever you choose to store your possessions, there’s a few things to keep in mind, so make sure the storage centre of your choice meets some basic criteria.

First of all, is the site well cared for? Broken windows, poor lighting and inadequate security fencing all work in a potential thief’s favour, so keep an eye out. The same goes for the units too – check that they’re solid and well-maintained.

Is there plenty of CCTV coverage? And equally important, is the CCTV recorded? Should the worst happen, a CCTV recording will be essential for police, and many sites that have CCTV don’t actually have the capacity to record and store everything. It never hurts to ask.

Any self-storage company worth your business will have robust and comprehensive security practices that give you complete peace of mind when you leave your possessions with them, so make sure they’re providing a service you can put your trust in.
