A well-lit facility makes for a poor target to thieves and others involved in what would be nefarious activities.
A well-lit facility says to a thief, “Better try somewhere else”. There are just so many poorly lit storage facilities out there offering better opportunity for criminals or would be criminals.
We’re not in the criminal business. We’re in the storage business and our job is to make sure your stuff is secure.
Lights aren’t just a criminal deterrent, they also help you see where you’re going. In the winter months this is especially important on account of the snow and ice. If you can’t see where you’re stepping because it’s too dark you take the risk of slipping and falling.
At Jiffy, we don’t want you to fall. We want you to store your stuff safely. Another thing to consider is conscientious management. Just because a facility has many light fixtures doesn’t mean they turn them on or replace them efficiently.
In the name of getting you a better price, facilities will often look to cut corners on things like this. The cost of hydro and replacing bulbs is quite high but we don’t care. We keep our facility well-lit because it’s the right thing to do.
