Storage Tips

Use the following storage tips to help meet your personal storage needs.

  • Visit the storage area to determine the correct size, and meet the manager to ensure that you are comfortable with where you are storing.
  • Reserve your storage unit 2-3 weeks in advance to ensure that the size you will need is available
  • It's a good idea to place strips of wood or pallets on the floor of the unit to create air flow. You do not want to place boxes or overstuffed furniture directly on the concrete floor.
  • Leave a small air space between every item and the walls and an inch of space between boxes for ventilation.
  • Always use high quality locks on your unit. Locks are available for sale - just ask your site manager for a recommendation (See our Security section).
  • Check with the rental office for storage supplies, such as mattress and sofa covers.
  • If it's worth storing its worth insuring. Check with your homeowners or rental insurance company to see if they will cover your goods while in storage. If they do not, the self-storage manager can provide you with a company that deals with storage facilities all over the country.
  • Cover furniture to help keep it dust free. Place cedar in the unit to help keep items fresh.
  • Remember to check your goods on a monthly basis.
  • Make up an inventory of your stored items and keep it in a safe place at home or in a safe deposit box.
  • If you need access to your items, leave a walkway to the rear of the room, or place frequently needed items near the door.
  • Put heavy items on the bottom. Light or odd-shaped items go on top.
