Are Wire Mesh Storage Bins Safe? You Might Be Surprised

with so many options on the market how do you know what option is the best? It can be easy to go with the option that seems to be the best price at face value, such as simple wire mesh storage bins, but it’s important to remember not all storage is created equal and there are some serious drawbacks with this style of storage.

The Problem with Wire Mesh

At face value, wire mesh storage may seem like the most cost-effective way to add storage units to your property, however, studies show that renters are less likely to pay for extra storage if they do not feel it is secure. Wire mesh is see-through, meaning renters’ belongings are directly within sight of any wandering eyes or thieves looking to make an easy come up. One of the main reasons to install storage in the first place is to make an extra monthly income, and sadly that doesn’t work out when you invest in a storage solution that your tenants don’t want to rent. Renters value privacy and security, especially when it comes to storing their belongings. Wire mesh storage also tends to look messy, since you can see directly into the renters’ bins if their belongings aren’t neatly arranged, it appears disorganized and unkempt, and unfortunately, it is on full display. Another large reason to offer on-site storage options for your renters is to take control over clutter and extra items being stowed improperly in hallways, patios, and other shared spaces, to help keep the property looking neat and tidy. Wire mesh essentially takes the unkempt mess and moves it to a more concentrated area.

Wire mesh leaves a lot to be desired in the security department, along with privacy and appearance. What if you could find options comparable in price that is of higher quality and more positively viewed by renters? Well, you can!
