High security self storage units


A self-storage company provides you with storage rooms, lockers and / or outdoor space for rent. Companies will rent self-storage spaces to individuals (usually storing household goods) and to businesses (usually storing excess inventory or archived documents).

Hired spaces are usually secured by the tenant’s own lock and key and unlike a warehouse, employees of a self-storage company do not have access to the contents of the space, which limits the storage operator’s liability regarding the renters belongings. The location itself is equipped with security from cameras to alarms to access control, safeguarding clients’ items and provides 24 hour access.
