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.
