Where can you find safe self storage in Fort Worth, and is it affordable?  What does safe self storage, or secure self storage, mean?  Is it really possible to promise that items stored in a mini storage are 100% safe and secure?

Right now, though, let’s talk about safe self storage.

What you should expect from storage facilities in your area

It is a reasonable expectation that when you rent a storage unit, the items you put in that storage unit are safe from theft, vandalism, or damage.  That is the general belief of all customers, and that is the general, unspoken promise of all storage facilities.  Quite frankly, that is what you should expect from storage companies.

But, it is not always a reality!

The reality of secure self storage

In order for a self storage company to be 99% secure, four stages of security must be in place. They are:

  • Fenced property with only one access point, a main, locked gate
  • Security cameras monitored 24/7
  • On-site management to provide the human protection
  • Individual access keys, computer coded, for each person

These four stages of security are as good as it gets in the storage business.  They are available at Blue Mound 287 Self Storage, and they are available at all of the leading storage facilities in the United States . . . but . . . they are not available at ALL storage facilities, and if even one of the four stages of security is missing, vandals and thieves will find a way to breach that security.

We have the statistics to prove it if you are interested in seeing them.

Insurance is always a good idea

That is why we always recommend that customers call their insurance agencies and obtain renter’s insurance for their stored items. The insurance is very inexpensive and it is one added layer of security for their belongings.  If the items you are storing are valuable/important to you, and we assume they are since you are paying to store them, then they are worth a few dollars more so you can obtain insurance for them.  Simple logic!

The answer is NO, 100% certainty is not possible

The only reason we say no, 100% certainty is not possible with regards to security, is because Mother Nature can throw a wrench into the conversation. No storage unit is safe from a tornado or damaging flood or hurricane. There are no guarantees against earth quakes.  Those random acts of nature cannot be protected against, no matter how hard we try at Blue Mound; thus our recommendation for insurance.
