What to Look For When Touring Las Vegas Storage Units

August 9, 2017

There are many different storage facilities in Las Vegas, so it can be difficult to narrow down your options to find the right one for your needs. To make this decision easier, schedule a tour with each of the facilities that you are interested in so you can see it in person. Here’s what to look for when touring Las Vegas storage units:

Security Features

As you tour the property, look around for security cameras, gates, and alarms. Don’t choose a facility that is not equipped with various security features.  If the facility has cameras, feel free to ask the management team how often the footage is reviewed and destroyed. The facility may begin to tape over existing footage after a few days, weeks, or months. There’s no law regulating how long businesses have to hold onto footage, so this is a good question to ask.


Do you see any dead bugs inside empty units? Are the floors in the common areas clean? If the facility is not cleaned on a regular basis, pests and rodents may be attracted to the units. The last thing that you want is to find pests and rodents inside your storage unit, so look for a facility that is well maintained.


Before even stepping out of your vehicle, you should begin to assess the location of the facility. First, determine if the facility is located too far away from your home. You shouldn’t have to drive dozens of miles in order to visit your storage unit, so choose a facility that is located close to your home. Then, think about the neighborhoods that surround the facility. Is there a lot of crime in the area? If so, you may constantly worry about whether your belongings are safe. Choose a facility that is in an area you are comfortable with so you don’t have to worry.


Is there an office on-site? You should not choose a facility that does not have on-site staff during normal business hours. If a facility is not staffed at least part of the time, it can be very challenging to ask for help, get your questions answered, or report a problem with your unit. Read the essential guide to renting a storage unit.
