A Good Place to Start

Having working smoke, carbon monoxide (CO) detectors and a fire extinguisher in your storage space can make a big difference, yet many self-storage around the world lack these devices. In North America, only 40% of homes have these detectors, and in Great Britain that drops to 16%.
