How Safe Are Self-Storage Units?28th February 2019
The idea of leaving your expensive or valuable possessions in storage can be daunting. It’s no surprise, then, that the security strength of our storage facilities is one of our most enquired about topics.
Here at Darvills Storage, we ensure security is our number one priority. We house a number of highly robust storage units, as well as a variety of other security features, to guarantee the total safety of your items. This article is going to show why choosing to store your items with us is an efficient, low-risk aid to your moving process.
The Storage Units
When you choose to use our self-storage options, you’ll receive your very own unit that is yours and yours only for the duration of your agreement. This unit is made from a robust high-grade wood that is thoroughly checked for any signs of wear or damage before each rental.
The unit is contained in our state-of-the-art facility and lockable using a padlock. The padlock will be provided by you, and so we highly recommend purchasing a quality padlock to maximise security.
There’s a reason why we ask you to provide your own padlock: it means you and you alone have sole access to your unit. We believe that reusing locks or keeping spare keys on the premises compromises security. By possessing your own lock and key, not only can you rest assured that you are the only person with access to your unit, you can also access your unit at will, coming and going as you please without needing to gain access from a middleman.
In addition to the unit itself, we also operate a 24/7 CCTV service which keeps all entrances visible at all times. Not only does this act as an effective deterrent, but it means that in the very unlikely case that any unauthorised person were to enter the facility, we would have it all on camera as evidence. With CCTV in operation, we’re able to swiftly address any suspicious activity.
We like to believe our security is unprecedented, but the truth is there are some circumstances out of our control, such as extreme natural disasters, that could potentially damage the contents of your storage unit. In the rare — and we mean rare — events that anything does happen, our insurance cover means you will be fully compensated the financial value of your items.
When choosing to store your possessions, it’s vitally important you do so with a reputable storage business. Darvills Storage has been operating for over a century. We’ve provided customers throughout Bradford, Halifax and West Yorkshire with a comprehensive range of moving and storage services in that time, and have garnered an excellent reputation in the process.
