I feel sad when I hear news of burglary of storage units. It’s imperative to have good secure locks placed on the storage doors. Invest in good locks that cannot be easily cut with a bolt cutter and make it a point to change the locks once in a while if you’re planning to keep items in storage for many years. You could also go for a good quality combination lock and if your combination lock allows you to change combination, do that regularly. Whatever it is, never assume you’re safe from burglary. Always take that necessary step to make it tough for burglars to break in. http://ezestore.com.au
