What makes a storage unit the safest?

We believe, as do other storage experts, believe storage security boils down to four main components in a security plan:

  • Fencing
  • Key cards
  • Video monitoring
  • On-site management

Let’s look at each of these in a bit more detail.


We have been in the storage solutions business for quite a few years, and we are blown away by the number of competing storage facilities which do not even have a fence surrounding their property.  How can that approach possibly be called secure. When all that is separating a thief from your possessions is a lock on your trailer storage unit, security is blown. It takes a determined thief all of one minute to cut off a lock.  One minute!

A secure trailer storage facility should have a fenced property, period, end of story! There should only be one access point to that property, the main gate, and that gate must be electronically-locked at all time, access only possible with an access key card, which brings us to our next step in security.

Key cards

Keys can be lost. Keys can be duplicated. Individual computerized access cards are the way security is done today and into the future.  Every access card should be personalized, and the access card should be needed to enter the property and to enter the individual mini storage units.  And if anyone tries to break in, we have step three in the security process, namely video monitoring.

Video monitoring

Nothing discourages a would-be vandal or thief than cameras which basically say “smile for the camera!”  Video monitoring should be extensive and it should cover every nook and cranny of the storage buildings and storage grounds.  The storage management should make it known to any would-be thief that their image is captured for posterity and they will be caught, and that brings us to the final stage in trailer storage security, the storage management.

On-site management

Nothing in the security business discourages vandals better than a human presence.  There should always be management on the grounds of the storage facility.  Would-be thieves, upon seeing storage employees walking about, will simply drive down the road to the next storage facility, and keep driving until they see one less secure. There are many to choose from, but few which have all four phases of security we are suggesting.
