Does it really make a difference?
Even after you’ve chosen a secure storage facility, you still can take steps to make sure your belongings are safe.
Many storage facilities let you choose your own lock for your unit’s door. Taking the time to choose a lock that will hold up against bolt cutters is highly recommended. You should avoid buying a lock with a long shackle, which is the loop that passes through or around the object you’re locking.
Disc locks are the most popular self-storage locks. We recommend purchasing a disc lock which is difficult to cut making it much more burglar-proof. For starters, it can’t be snapped with bolt cutters because of the way in which they’re designed. What’s more is that other tools, like hammers and lock picks, are also largely ineffective. It can be manipulated and picked, yes, but it will take a considerable amount of time to do so compared to other types of locks. That’s notable considering that most thieves are looking for a quick, easy in and out. In fact, to manipulate a disc lock, most thieves would have to turn to grinding it, which is messy, loud and time consuming. Disc locks actually originated for the sole purpose of securing self-storage units. They’re typically made of stainless steel, so they are able to thrive in year-round weather. Perhaps the lone disadvantage of going the disc lock route is that these locks will cost you more than the padlock or the combination lock. But when it comes to your personal belongings, it’s better to spend a little bit more money upfront than have to spend a lot of money replacing your valuables later on.
If you have a few high-value items among your stored possessions, it is recommended that you place those valuables in the back of your unit. Doing so can protect your most important belongings from what is referred to as a “crash and grab” theft. In this type of burglary, thieves break into several units and quickly seize whatever looks like it holds the most value. Because these burglaries often happen so quickly–usually in a matter of minutes–crooks will be less likely to snatch important items if you’ve made them more difficult to grab.
