If you are of the belief that all storage spaces are the same, we strongly recommend you read this article before renting a storage unit.  We are Blue Mound 287 Self Storage, serving the Greater Fort Worth area with secure self storage. Call us at 817-439-1380 for more information about self storage.

Storage spaces differ in security.

We wish we could tell you that all storage facilities offer the same level of security, but that simply is not the case.  Some are woefully inadequate at protecting your belongings, while others have all four levels of security, thus ensuring that your possessions are safe from vandalism, theft, and damage due to natural causes.

What are the four levels of security?

  • Fenced perimeter with only one access gate to the property.
  • 24/7 video security monitoring.
  • Individualized access keys, not only to the gate, but to the individual storage unit spaces.
  • On-site management.

Some storage facilities offer just one level; some two; a smaller number offer three; find one with four levels and rest assured that whatever it is you are storing, that it is completely safe.

Storage spaces have various features.

Some storage spaces are simply a square or rectangular space to store things. Some have electricity.  A smaller number offer climate controlled storage.  There is also outside storage to consider as well as car storage, boat storage, and RV storage.  Our sister company, Mouser Self Storage, in Alvarado, even offers small hobby shop storage units for people who want to work on their cars in a protected space, or who want to work on their art projects or similar activity.

Suffice it to say that no matter what you need the storage unit for, it is possible to find a storage unit to meet your needs, provided you live in a large enough city where options are available.

In full disclosure, please note that added features will cost more, and you need to be aware of that fact so you can weight the cost against the importance of renting a unit with added features.

In the end, choose the one which fits your needs the best.

Storing items in storage facilities is all about convenience and/or necessity.  Only you, the owner of the possessions to be stored, know their value and how important they are to you.  If you do not feel that four levels of security are necessary, you can probably save money by going with a less-secure facility.  If you feel like you need climate controlled storage, with electricity, you will be able to find it.  What you need plus your budget will make your choice a fairly easy one.  In the end, ask around for references if you can’t make up your mind.  Know, also, that in most cases, there is no minimum time you must rent; you can rent on a month-to-month basis without paying any penalties or extra fees.
