Contrary to some misconceptions about self-storage, safe self storage is not expensive, and when compared to the replacement cost of having important items stolen or damaged, the cost of trustworthy, secure self storage is quite reasonable.
Allow us to explain. We are Blue Mound 287 Self Storage, serving the Greater Fort Worth area, so we know a thing or two about the mini storage industry. Call us at 817-439-1380 for all of your self storage needs.
Now, though, let’s talk about security in self storage, and the cost of that security.
What does safe self storage cost?
We can only speak for our own Blue Mound 287 Self Storage business with regards to prices, but we can tell you that our prices are competitive within our local industry.
A 5’x5’ storage unit will cost you $45 per month. The prices increase from there based on the size of the unit. The largest storage unit, a 20’x30’, will cost $345 per month. The smallest is big enough to store most items found in one room of a house. The largest is big enough to store all furniture from a 3-bedroom home.
Prices will vary from company to company, but the prices we quoted will be “in the ballpark” for most storage facilities.
How secure are storage facilities?
Unfortunately, there is no standard answer for this question, because not all storage facilities have the security that Blue Mound 287 Self Storage provides. Allow us to explain.
There are four basic levels of security for a mini storage company.
The first is security fence around the entire perimeter of the property, with only one access point for that property.
The second involved secure locking mechanisms on all storage units. At Blue Mound 287 Self Storage, this involves personalized computer access cards for the main gate and for the individual storage units.
The third involves video monitoring throughout all storage buildings.
And, the fourth involved on-site management to provide human monitoring in real time.
As stated earlier, not all storage companies provide all four levels of security like Blue Mound 287 Self Storage provides. We have seen storage buildings without perimeter fences. We have seen them without video monitoring, and we have seen them without on-site management.
Having said all that, if the storage company employs all four levels of security, your possessions are as safe as you can possibly hope for, infinitely safer than storing them in your own home.
The competitive nature of the self storage industry
The good news is this: in this highly-competitive industry, you are going to pay essentially the same amount, per month, for extremely secure self storage as you would pay for storage at a place which does not have all four levels of security.
Shop around. Pay close attention to move-in specials to save extra money. Do your due diligence, make sure you ask about security measures, and you too will come to the conclusion that safe self storage is not expensive.
