When you want to rent storage space, it can be easy to run into false information. We think it’s important to clear up misinformation, so here are some common self-storage facility myths you should be aware of, as well as the truths behind them.

My Items Won’t Be Safe in a Self-Storage Facility

As much as we wish storage theft was a myth, it isn’t. While it can happen, any high-quality self-storage facility will have security features to help combat theft. At EZ Access Storage, we take the safety of your stuff seriously. We offer secure perimeter fencing, PIN code gate access, security cameras with motion detection, LED security lighting, enhanced security locks on each unit, as well as an onsite manager for your peace of mind!

Self-storage can be useful for a variety of different situations.

Only Hoarders Use Self Storage

While the rise of reality TV shows featuring hoarders and storage units might have spearheaded this myth, we can assure you that hoarders aren’t the only people who use self-storage. Self-storage can be useful for a variety of different situations.  Perhaps a loved one passed away and you need to store their belongings before you sort through everything. Maybe you’re moving and need an easy place to store your extra stuff while you move. Or you could like to keep a storage unit to easily alternate your winter and summer items. Whatever the reason, self-storage can be for everyone!

Storage Units are Dirty and Attract Pests

A common myth is that self-storage units are dirty places where mice can get into your stuff. But any reputable self-storage facility will make sure everything is kept clean. Why? Because the safety of your belongings is important (especially to us at EZ Access Storage).

However, it’s important to be aware that some items you store in your unit can lead to a pest problem. We don’t want that and we’re sure you don’t want that either, so be sure any perishable food and drinks are left out of your storage unit.

Renting is a Long-Term Commitment

This myth definitely isn’t true! We know that every situation is different. So, at EZ Access Storage, our contracts reflect that. You may know you’ll need a storage unit for a few months, like if you’re a college kid going home for the summer. Or your situation may be a little more up in the air. No matter what, you can rent month-to-month or sign up for exactly how long you need.

There’s Hidden Treasure in Abandoned Storage Units

Another myth that’s been glamorized by TV! As much fun as it is to imagine discarded storage units full of valuable treasure, that usually isn’t the case. Very rarely is a storage unit abandoned with high-value items. It can be fun to pretend, but it likely won’t be a reality.
