Security. Its quite possibly the most important thing to look for when you are deciding where to store your belongings. Heck, it’s half the reason you get a storage unit instead of storing it in your aunt Ida’s shed. As part of the Salem, Oregon Community, we can happily say that Salem is a great place to live. Its big enough to have plenty to do, but not so big that its overwhelming. Close to the beach, mountains, and countless hiking and camping spots, it’s no wonder that Salem’s inhabitants are so close to nature.
