Types of Storage Facilities You Should Know
Issue: Jan 2018
It’s already an established trend that the sizes of homes in Singapore are shrinking. This is what happens when the population is steadily growing but available space is decreasing. As a result, the demand for outside storage services has exploded during the last few years. Homeowners are facing serious challenges on how and where to store some of their belongings and household items. There’s a huge likelihood that you are one of these homeowners. You want a place where you can store some of your stuff, not only for security reasons, but also to organise the clutter in your residence. The good news is that there’s an abundance of storage facilities in Singapore.
What Kind Of Storage Do You Need?
Storage facilities greatly vary when it comes to the services they offer. Some offer general services which basically means they accept most items from clients. Companies offering specific or niche services focus on special valuables like automobiles, jewelry, furniture, or antiques. Suffice to say that when you go looking for storage space, you have to make sure that the company caters to the items you want to store. It would be a shame if you drove your automobile for safekeeping to a facility only to learn that they don’t have a unit that can accommodate it.
What Are The Security Measures In Place To Protect Your Valuables?
If you are to store an item in a facility, are you confident that it will be protected from human theft or from natural calamities? The safety of your valuables depends on the levels of security measures being utilized by the facility. Generally speaking, the facility should have a minimum of three security measures in place. These measures may include security guards, closed-circuit television cameras, keys and locks system, climate-controlled units, or even biometric identification systems.
Are Your Valuables Insecured?
There is always the risk that the things you send for safekeeping in a storage facility gets stolen, destroyed, or sabotaged. The only protection you have for this risk is insurance. If an item is insured, you can regain its monetary value through the insurance policy you took for it. You can either avail of an insurance policy from an outside insurer or you can get the insurance policy being offered by the storage company. Whatever route you choose, just make sure that your belongings are insured. In most cases, you probably won’t regain the whole value of the lost item but at least you get something instead of nothing.
Can You Access Your Belongings Whenever You Want?
The best storage facilities are the ones that allow their clients to check on their stuff on a 24/7 basis. This is very important if you regularly move items into your storage unit. Always remember that you own these things so you should have the privilege of accessing them whenever you wish. Complete accessibility is also an assurance that the units are being watched and managed day and night.
