Keep Your Belongings Safe

Today, let’s talk about something you might not want to think about; theft. It can be easy to feel protective of your belongings, they are yours after all. Is your home as secure as a dedicated storage property, though? Probably not, unless you have locks on every door, full time video surveillance, and a hired security person who spends their shifts in your home. If you do have all those things, then maybe your belongings truly are safer at home, but let’s be realistic. Theft rates at storage businesses are incredibly low across all self storage properties. Not so at Long Beach Storage Center, which is explicitly designed to keep your belongings as secure as possible.


Most storage companies boast video surveillance, but is it comprehensive? A few cameras here and there to watch the lanes, the interiors of the buildings, perhaps. These are the kinds of questions you have to ask of your new storage partner if you are going to sleep easy with priceless family heirlooms, important documentation, and antique furniture tucked away behind a locked door. Speaking of locked doors, some storage businesses go above and beyond just keeping the doors locked. Zoned security, individually alarmed units, and personal access key fobs that are recorded when used. Every step of the way through the property from start to finish is carefully monitored and recorded so that you can be certain no one is going to have access if you don’t want them to.

With competitive features and pricing driving the storage industry, many businesses now offer 24/7 access to your unit. That is pretty convenient, being able to come and go as you please, when it best suits your schedule. But who’s watching the gate? The security cameras? Some of these places have on-site managers or other personnel to watch things overnight, but even they have to sleep some time. If you truly want to know your belongings are secure, putting up with the inconvenience of a locked door overnight is well worth it. The lights are kept on all night, of course, but there’s also an electronic gate out front, checkpoints through the property, and of course, individually alarmed and locked units to contend with.

All in all, for the safety and security of your belongings, and most importantly, your peace of mind, it can be well worth it to spend a little bit extra at a storage business you can trust. Our business clients especially can benefit, with documentation storage that is second to none. Spare stock or supplies can be kept here too, locked up nice and safe where nothing will disturb them. No one wants to think about the risks of keeping your things away from home, so eliminate those risks completely. When you won’t settle for second best, and need to know for certain that your belongings are being kept safely under lock and key, keep Long Beach Storage in mind for all your needs.
