Choosing a Secure Self Store Peterborough

Finding yourself a trustworthy storage solution doesn’t have to be stressful. We have compiled a list of what to look out for, and why these features are so important.

  • 24/7 Digital Surveillance. A pretty obvious point, but CCTV is one of the most important factors when checking if an area is secure. The CCTV at 1st Access records 24/7, meaning a careful watch is being kept over your belongings every second of every day.
  • 24 Hour Security. Having CCTV is essential, but if it is monitored remotely you still may feel uneasy. At 1st Access, our staff maintain a stringent security policy, working 24 hours a day on the premises and controlling the entrance to our units. 
  • Heavy Duty Padlocks. Purchasing a heavy-duty padlock gives an additional layer of security, keeping your belongings safely locked away. Our padlocks are hand-made in the UK with storage safety in mind. 
  • Strict Access Measures. You, and only you, will be able to access your unit. That’s a promise. 

 Taking Out Insurance 

As part of our promise to you, we will provide you with a full licence agreement before storing any goods with us – following the BAR Standards of Storage. Any personal storage company should be completely transparent with you so you may make necessary arrangements according to your requirements and personal preferences. 

For full peace of mind and increased protection, we always recommend taking out insurance. Taking into account your unique requirements, we will advise you on the best options and help you to arrange suitable insurance. Your peace of mind is our priority.
