Store Your Valuables With Care

  • Small items can be stored in large appliances to save space. You can use the space inside drawers and larger appliances, such as stoves and refrigerators, to store small items like towels, linens, toys, etc.
  • Large items, such as bed frames, tables, and large furniture, can be dismantled to save space. Remember to keep all parts, including screws and smaller items, together by taping them to the largest item
  • To prevent scratching, you can wrap furniture legs with protective bubble wrap, furniture covers or pads
  • Don't forget to label your boxes on all sides for easy identification
  • Make sure fragile boxes are placed on top of heavier, less delicate boxes. Be sure not to over pack boxes as they can get heavy and dangerous
  • Place frequently accessed items towards the front of your unit. Less frequently needed items should be placed toward the rear of your unit
  • Boxes that are tightly sealed with packing tape will prevent dust from entering
  • You can use furniture covers or moving pads to keep items off the floor of the unit
  • When storing business files, leave a walkway down the center of your unit to make accessing items easier
  • Do not store anything that is flammable, such as paint or other chemicals, or perishable
  • Drain any fluids prior to storing snow blowers, lawnmowers and other equipment; do not store hazardous or combustible materials
  • Purchase a secure, high-quality lock. One of the most highly recommended is the disk lock.
