Storage rental at Climate Masters Indoor Storage includes high tech security and a monitored fire alarm system designed to keep your contents safe.  If you own a storage building, you will need to purchase an alarm system, surveillance cameras, access gate and alarm monitoring services.  This can be quite costly in comparison to what you pay to rent storage.


Insuring a storage building can be quite costly.  While you may wish to purchase optional insurance for your contents when you rent storage, the expense is minimal compared to the cost of storage building insurance.
