Over time, you generate a lot of important papers that you need to keep filed for future reference. You box them up and stick them on top of the closet shelf or down in the basement. Wherever you have started to accumulate these records, the area is probably getting crowded. You can free up space by storing these documents in a storage unit.
Why would you use self storage for sensitive documents?
If you have been storing your sensitive documents at another location, you will find the cost of using a self storage unit is more cost effective. The use of a self storage unit will save you money as well as space.
When you use a self storage unit, you have the luxury of extra space to set up an organization system to keep track of your documents. You can organize this information into categories to easily locate what you need when you need it. You will have the room to go through important documents without anyone around and without any cluttered work space in your office or home.
Will the sensitive documents be safe in a self storage unit?
Sensitive documents should be kept in plastic bins to protect against flooding or water damage, which cannot be controlled. You should also keep the containers off the floor by using pallets or plastic shelving. As an added protection you may want to consider using a safe for extremely sensitive material. This safe will be able to help protect against a possible fire.
Will the sensitive documents be secure in a self storage unit?
Safety and security are two separate considerations to look at when choosing your self storage facility. Many storage facilities have full time attendants to monitor the activity in the area or 24-hour surveillance cameras with closed circuit security. Check out the facility before agreeing to rent your unit and make sure it is part of a locked and gated area with access control.
