What to Look for in a Storage Facility


September 17th, 2019

Storage facilities need to be safe, secure, and convenient. If you are storing items with financial or sentimental value, you need to know that your belongings are safe. When you are looking for a storage facility, what features do you value most? Many renters value advanced security features, while other renters value convenient access. Today, Marina View Storage shows us what to look for in the ideal storage facility.


One of the most important factors to consider before renting a personal storage unit is the security of the facility. Most storage facilities have precautions such as a gate, strong fence, and locks on the units. Depending on what you are storing, security can be a huge aspect of your decision. When looking for the perfect storage facility, look for security features such as staff security guards, 24-hour video surveillance, key-code locked gates, and responsive customer service staff.

24/7 Access

A big perk of some storage facilities is 24-hour access to your unit. This can be very beneficial if you work irregular hours or need access later in the day. After all, they are your belongings, and you should be able to get to them when you desire.

Easily Accessible

A feature such as drive-up storage units can set an excellent storage facility apart from the rest. It can be very challenging to move everything out of your storage unit if you need to carry it more than a few feet. Easy access also means the location of the storage facility is easy to get to with a moving van or oversized vehicle.

Climate-Controlled Storage Units

There are two main types of storage units: outdoor storage units and climate-controlled storage units. One thing that sets apart our storage facilities is the option for a climate-controlled storage unit. These units are secure and can keep the valuable contents inside at the desired temperature to prevent wear. If you need a storage unit for items such as wooden furniture, family heirlooms, leather goods, and more, Marina View Storage recommends renting a climate-controlled storage unit.

Friendly Staff

The staff at the storage facility makes a difference. They are the ones who provide access to all of the renters, and they are the first line of defense when a problem arises. Having a friendly relationship with staff will make your overall renting experience better.
