A true testament of a successful business is happy customers who share their feedback. And Secure Storage has just received some feedback that we would like to share with you. Why? Because even after providing long term storage for customers across Oregon for more than 27 years, positive feedback like this still puts a smile on our faces.
A customer named, Loraine, offered this comment about our Redmond facility. “We were so pleased that after all this winter snow and rain our storage unit was absolutely tight and there was no moisture or damage to our items. Thanks for everything.”
Two Storage Unit Features Made the Difference
What makes us particularly happy about Loraine’s comment is that she zeroed in on two features that we added, not because they were necessarily needed, but because we felt they would protect our customer’s belongings better. And we were right!
The first feature (shown above) is the addition of a concrete lip that’s in the front of each storage unit’s door preventing water to puddle and get into a unit.
The second is the construction and material of our storage units. Each unit’s concrete floors and galvanized steel walls add strength and durability, plus helps prevent moisture from entering—and prevents the chance of fire or theft.
Just think, these features are offered with our basic, everyday type of long term storage. You don’t even need to reserve one of our climate-controlled units to have your things really safe from outside elements.
Choose us, and get the best protection around.

This is the second in a series of blog posts designed to help you, the consumer, choose the best rent storage place for your personal or business valuables. Sure there are a lot of storage rental places, but which are more secure? And which security measures are the most important? A customer recently found out the answers to these questions that we share below:
Liz had just retired and was considering spending the next year traveling abroad. However, she was dragging her feet about making the decision because she was concerned about the safety of her photographic equipment in the home. Something that began as a hobby grew into a side job and she hoped to continue being a freelance photographer in retirement. So she decided finding a safe storage facility outside of the home would be smart.
After visiting three facilities close by, she learned that they were not created equal. For example, only one offered onsite managers, who were there to minimize the chance of personal theft. And, only one offered individual unit alarms that would automatically arm and rearm themselves after each of her visits. Plus, only one offered steel walls that could help protect against a fire or other disaster.
Secure Storage turned out to be the safest storage place who provided all three protection measures, besides high fences and surveillance cameras. This made the decision easy.
We suggest you too, decide on the degree of security that will make you feel most comfortable. Because losing thousands of dollars in theft or property damage is no fun. Learn more >
Many people who are looking for a self-storage facility have storage security top of mind. Luckily for us, this isn’t a problem. From day one, our company has made security a priority with multiple safeguards in place for our customers.
By choosing to pay for storage, customers say to us, “This item or these items mean something to me.” So we do our best to protect their belongings by offering safe self-storage.
First Safeguard: Facility-Wide Safe Storage
Security cameras monitor our well-lit self storage facilities all day and night and high fences keep out unwanted visitors. We also employ on-site managers, so that each of our safe self-storage locations has additional protection by having someone physically on the grounds who know the customers.
Second Safeguard: Self-Storage Security Codes
Each of our customers is given a unique security code, allowing only them—and other customers with other security codes—to enter the premises through our secured gates. Once activating their self-storage security code, their personal unit is disarmed for entry. Once they vacate our safe self-storage and reenter their security code, their unit automatically rearms itself.
Third Safeguard: Strong Steel Walls
Each of our secure self-storage units, regardless of size, is made with galvanized steel—a material that is almost impossible to break through. Besides not showing any wear, the material offers customers an additional protection between any intruders and their valuable items.
So you can see our safe self-storage is all that it’s cracked up to be. If you’re currently at a facility that isn’t, switch today. Or if you’re contemplating having the need for storage, do yourself a favor and choose a facility based on storage security. Hands-down, ours will win. We haven’t had a break-in at any of our locations for more than 20 years.
