How secure is self storage?

Do storage facilities have cameras? Are there lights? Trusting a storage facility with your things is a big decision. Extra Space Storage takes our responsibility to provide a secure storage space very seriously. All Extra Space Storage locations include security measures, such as:

  • Video Surveillance
  • Facilities are well lit
  • Controlled access that requires code to enter
  • Manager on site during office hours

Specific locations have even more advanced security measures, including:


  • Resident manager that lives on site
  • Individually-alarmed storage units
  • Restricted access to only the floor your storage unit is on
