Storage units can be a tempting target for burglars. After all, the units often go unchecked by their renters for long periods of time, there are plenty of people entering and exiting the facility, and it can be difficult for perpetrators to be prevented before or caught after they commit a crime such as theft or vandalism. These conditions are just about ideal for any would-be burglars and many storage unit complexes lack appropriate security and have an issue with theft, vandalism, and other crimes.
Be Protected at Apex Storage
We at Apex storage are determined to be better than that, and we are proud to say that the security measures we take to prevent crimes and catch perpetrators do an effective job. We have worked hard to establish a reputation as a storage facility people can trust with their belongings, and our hard work has paid off.
One of the many ways we ensure that our facilities are safe and secure is by installing gated entrances at every facility. In addition to the other security measures we provide—such as video surveillance and 24/7 on-site managers—our facilities are protected from intruders by a fence and only accessible via the gated entrance.
Adding a gated entrance to our storage facilities increases security for a few reasons. Here are some of them:
- Gated entrances prevent people who should not access the facility from entering it. Only customers who actively rent storage units have a code to the gate that they can use to enter.
- Gated entrances deter would-be intruders, vandals, robbers, and other criminals. Sometimes the gates themselves are enough to prevent a would-be criminal from considering our storage unit as a potential target.
- Gated entrances allow us to keep track of who enters and exits the storage unit. If on the off chance a customer steals or vandalizes another customer’s storage unit or possessions, we will be able to check who was inside the facility at the time by checking which gate codes had been used. We would also have access to security footage and would be able to work with local law enforcement to catch and punish them.
