Things to Look For in a Self-Storage Location

At EZ Storage® in St. Louis, we know there are many self-storage facilities out there that offer units where you can keep your belongings safe and sound for a certain period of time. If you’re thinking about renting a unit for a few months, there are some things to look for when browsing the internet or driving around the city, checking out locations. Things such as security, staff, and access should all be at the top of your list when deciding on which storage facility to use. If you have any questions about our metro-area locations, feel free to contact the one nearest you!

Modern Security

Chain link fences are suitable for your yard, but they don’t offer much in the way of security. If the storage location you’re looking at only has a chain link fence around it, you might want to consider storing your items elsewhere. At our facilities, we offer drive-through interior access to your storage unit, which means your belongings are surrounded by brick, concrete, and steel at all times.

On top of that, we have 24-hour surveillance that keeps an eye on everything, as well as individual door alarms on each unit. This means that if anyone besides you (or someone you’ve granted access to) tries to open your storage unit, the alarm will sound and our team will be notified immediately. Our modern security protocols are designed to keep you and your belongings safe.

Friendly and Knowledgeable Staff

There will always be times when you encounter people who don’t enjoy their job. They may act like they don’t want to be there, or they may seem apathetic to any concerns or complaints you bring to them. At EZ Storage®, you can count on our staff to be friendly, knowledgeable, and ready to help you however they can. Our team members and resident managers truly care about you and the things you store with us, and we want you to feel confident that we have your best interests at heart, no matter if you’re with us for one month or for 10 months.

If you visit a storage facility and feel that the staff isn’t on top of things, or if you file a complaint and nothing is done about it, it might be time to look for a new unit to rent. Even if you’ve had bad experiences with self-storage before, we’ll do everything we can to make sure you have a positive experience with us.

Access and Convenience

When you put things into storage, you want to know that you’ll be able to get items out of your unit whenever you need them. While we don’t offer 24/7 access, we do offer access seven days a week and 365 days a year. There are some storage companies that have limited hours on the weekends, or won’t let you access your unit after the office is closed for the day. At EZ, we know that you may need something out of your unit at 6 P.M. on a Saturday, and we want to make sure you can get to that item.

As we mentioned before, we offer drive-through access to our storage units, which means you can drive right up to your unit door, park your vehicle, and load or unload your items. This makes storage much more convenient and can save you time whenever you’re storing more items or taking certain things home.
