Storage Tips

  • Determine what will be stored and the possible size of the unit needed.
  • Use pallets, rugs or similar protection to keep items off of the floor in your unit.
  • Pack loose items in boxes or plastic storage containers.  They stack much easier!
  • Clean & fold clothing or fabrics prior to packing in boxes.  Hang drapes & clothing in a wardrobe box.
  • Glassware should be in protective wrapping to prevent damage in transit - always label them "Fragile".
  • Wrap your mattresses in plastic before storing.
  • Label all boxes on all sides for easy identification later.
  • Couches may be stored on end to save space, provided "arms" are not delicate.
  • Store valuables and lesser needed items in back of the unit, keeping items more often needed accessible.
  • Leave a path in the unit to allow for easy movement; you may store items longer than originally intended.
  • Place heavier, bulky items on the bottom of the stack.
  • Empty appliances of all liquids to prevent freezing.
  • Empty mowers, trimmers and other gas powered items of any gas or oil.
  • Never store perishables, explosives or flammables (gas) in the unit.
  • Blankets and pillows can be used to cover items in transit.
  • Call us if you see any suspicious activity on the storage grounds.
  • Please Note:  We do not have insurance that covers any of the items you store in your unit. We recommend that you contact your insurance agent to purchase renters insurance or to add a "storage rider" to your existing homeowners policy.  Without insurance, you are renting at your own risk!
