Storage Guide

Although moving into a storage unit may seem like an intimidating task, a little bit of advance planning can make the job easy. Here are some simple tips that will help you to select the proper storage unit, maximizing your economic investment and space efficiency:

  • Disassemble as many things as possible.
  • When possible, use the same size boxes; they stack better and create efficient use of space.
  • Protect your belongings. Wrap furniture with pads, use bubble wrap on breakables, be sure to coat metal objects with a rust preventative.
  • Pack boxes orderly and FULL. Partially empty boxes are a waste of space and can collapse from any weight put on top of them.
  • Label each box with its contents.
  • Identify which room the contents of each box belongs in, making unpacking easier
  • Place electronics in the back of your unit, away from the door.
  • Store television sets on top of something, not the concrete floor.
  • Store mattresses by covering them with plastic or paper. Use cardboard or a wooden pallet on the floor.
  • Use wardrobe boxes to store shoes, clothing and draperies. This prevents wrinkling and the collection of dust.
  • Place important papers and documents in one box and store it near the door for easy access.
  • Avoid storing food products in your unit. The food can spoil or attract rodents and insects.
  • Please do not store TOXIC WASTE, HAZARDOUS MATERIALS, EXPLOSIVES, FLAMMABLES, FIREARMS, LIVE ANIMALS, DRUGS or any illegal or stolen items.
