Securing Your Storage Containers

Storage Containers

Containers are an ideal solution to your temporary or long-term storage needs. Whether you need to manage the overflow of equipment or office contents important to your business, or you have simply outgrown your existing space, a storage container is a quick and inexpensive way to augment your current situation.

How do I secure my storage container?

When it comes to storing your belongings in containers, you want to rest assured that the contents are secure. Dear John Trailers offers a number of ways to ensure the safety of your storage contents.

Storage Containers near me


  • Heavy Duty Padlocks: storage container locks are the easiest way to store your belongings. Padlocks can be purchased from any Hardware store.
  • Lock Boxes: safer than padlocks that can be forced open with lock cutters, lock boxes offer a greater peace of mind. By design, steel lock boxes are hardy and secure. They’re also inexpensive and easy to install.

Remote monitoring through alarm systems:

  • 24/7 Alarm system: the greatest level of security you can install is an alarm system, particularly if your storage container is located near a landline. Consider a more sophisticated alarm system with remote monitoring for the ultimate in safety.

Metal Mesh and Razor Wire Fencing

  • Fencing: a more permanent solution might involve fencing around your storage containers to deter burglars. This added layer of security can work in tandem with one of the options above.
