The five most frequent doubts when renting a storage unit

1. When can I access it?

2. How do I know if my things are secure?
Storage rental companies have all the guarantees so that your belongings are in a secure place. This is one of the advantages they offer, as not only do they have facilities that are protected against theft, but also special facilities that will help ensure that your objects are not damaged.

These companies usually have security protocols that include fire detection systems, CCTV and padlocks.

3. Are there insurance policies for storage units?
Most companies have a multi-risk insurance policy to protect all your belongings.
