Safety is your number one concern when using a storage unit. Most of the security of your goods is likely to be out of your control, as it is the responsibility of the storage facility. Here you should expect a sophisticated alarm system and CCTV cameras to be installed to safeguard the premises and alert security when there is unauthorized entry.  Safe Storage Fareham

Any self-storage company worth its salt will be willing to show you their security measures as looking after your goods is their primary concern. On being allocated a storage unit, customers are expected to provide their own lock to secure the door of the unit. By getting a lock that is a known brand and is of good quality the locking of your unit is up to you.

Once your goods are inside the storage unit, the conditions inside will be dry and pest free. These are also guarantees that are given by a reputable storage facility, as both are critical to the optimum storage unit conditions one would expect to find. Your storage company should also be able to tell you how often they carry out pest control measures and what they are.

At Stop & Store Fareham we are fanatical about maintaining the strictest of security. Our client reviews continue to reflect the high level of service we offer, and we are driven to keep providing the highest levels we can.

We offer our clients some advice on how to keep their possessions in good order while in storage as mostly, if there are problems found with goods in a storage, the causes come with the goods in the first place, prior to storage. Here are some of them.

Packing Correctly

If items like clothing are brought into storage when they are still damp, they are likely to develop mould later on. It’s important to ensure that all items are clean and dry prior to being stored, as any food remnants or moisture will either attract pests or start to deteriorate while in storage.

Inserting a plastic bag into the storage box and putting the items inside it will further aid their protection. Adding a deterrent like soap powder, cinnamon stick or some moth balls can give that extra protection security you may need.

Don’t Bring a Pest with You into Self-storage

We have to point out how quickly pests like moths, rodents and bed bugs can do damage in the dark cozy environment of self-storage. They make babies, and soon there is a big family of them, happily chewing away at your possessions.

We warn you of the problems that this can cause, and often it happens without you even knowing it. Pests may be holed up in the back of a cupboard stored in your garage. If you don’t check it before it’s loaded you simply bring it with you to the self-storage, where left unattended the pests take over.

Also check any plant matter or paper you intend storing as these could also unsuspectingly house pests that are quietly living in them. Knowing this you can ensure that what you bring to storage is completely pest free, so that you are not in for any surprises when you collect your goods later.

While pests and moisture are likely to be your main danger when your goods are in storage, needless to say the way you pack is also important. Don’t pack anything heavy on fragile items and make sure that your boxes are strong enough. Using plastic crates does offer your goods more protection; ask about hiring them from us if you need them.

Use bubble wrap to protect anything that you feel may be vulnerable to breakage, and don’t just use any passing man and van to transport your possessions to the storage unit.

A professional company moving your goods is as important as the professional storage company is expected to be. Please read the Stop & Store reviews to satisfy you of our credentials- we are the storage professionals.
