For those of you not in the Fort Worth area, this article is for you. What should you look for to find the right mini storage for your situation?  We believe you should look at two criteria:  security and access.  Let’s look at both of these to find their importance.

Not cost?

The reason we don’t think cost is a factor is because the cost of a mini storage is pretty standard across the United States.  The sheer number of storage facilities, and the laws of supply and demand, pretty much assure that the cost of a storage space at one facility will be close to the cost at other storage buildings.

We do suggest you keep an eye out for specials. They are being offered quite often and most, if not all, storage facilities.  Be a shrewd shopper and look for those specials.

What about a size for you?

Again, size is fairly standard from facility to facility. Self storage units at Blue Mound 287 Self Storage range from the smallest, 5’x5’, to the largest, 20’x30’, and “anything” in-between, and those sizes are standard in the storage industry.


Which brings us to the first of what we believe to be the two most important factors: secure self storage.

Security in the self storage industry ranges from poor to excellent.  Poor consists of no protective fencing, and only a padlock protecting your possessions from would-be thieves and vandals.

Excellent consists of a fenced area, access available through only one main gate, computerized, personalized access key cards allowing ingress to the facility and then to your storage unit, video monitoring (security cameras), and on-site management.  We believe this is the standard you should expect from a self storage business, and this is the standard we live up to at Blue Mound 287 Self Storage.

Think about it: if you are paying basically the same price no matter where you store your belongings, why would you opt for the best security available?


The world does not operate on a 9-5 schedule.  Some people are night owls. Some people are up very early in the morning. Some people love to do projects on the weekends or in the evenings. We believe people should have access to their storage units 24/7, 365 per year.  Why would you store your valuable at a place where you could only access them during “working hours?”  It makes no sense in our opinion, and it should make no sense to you.

One word about climate controlled storage

One more thing to think about: if you live in an area which has temperature extremes, you really should consider getting climate controlled storage (air conditioning). This will prevent the damaging effects of oxidation and further protect your belongings.
