Lack of Security Features
CubeSmart offers little to no information about security features at each of their storage facilities. Besides a lock that goes on individual units, we could not find any information about additional security. We would like to see more information about their security measures in addition to individual unit locks. We believe customers shouldn't have to worry about having belongings harmed or stolen when using a storage unit.
Limited Gate Hours
While each storage unit may offer different gate hours, the most common seems to be open Monday to Sunday, 6AM to 10PM. Other top facilities offer 24 hour service, allowing customers access to their units whenever is convenient for them. We believe customers should be allowed access to their belongings when they want to and not be limited to hours set by the storage facilities.
Storage Facility Upkeep
CubeSmart does not offer any unit upkeep for its' customers'. Storage facilities are not inspected and regularly cleaned. Other top rated companies provide clean and regularly inspected facilities for customers.
The Bottom Line
CubeSmart provides a variety of storage units ranging in size to accommodate all types of customers. Whether you need a small unit for some personal items or a large unit if you are looking to store furniture, CubeSmart has options. However, there lack of security features and limited facility upkeep, leaves us to recommend looking at other storage unit companies first. Other companies will be able to offer more in terms of protecting your possessions.
