Helpful Storage Unit Tips
- Plan your storage space. Place the items you will need to access the most up front. Allow room for walkways.
- Make up an inventory of your stored items and keep them in safe place at home or in a safe deposit box. Always carry insurance on your items in storage. It is very inexpensive and will give you peace of mind.
- DO NOT store anything perishable (including food), flammable, or hazardous. This means no gasoline, oil, cleaning fluids, or paint thinner. If you’re storing any machinery that runs on gasoline or kerosene, drain the tank before putting it in the unit. If you’re putting any metal objects into storage (lawnmowers, file cabinets, etc.), it’s best to treat them with rust protector or at least wipe them down with an oily rag.
- Use uniform size boxes for easy stacking. Be sure your boxes are strong enough to hold 25-30 pounds.
- List contents of boxes on all four sides, number them and then seal them with packing tape. Stack lighter boxes on top of heavier ones.
- Dishes and glasses should be wrapped in paper and bubble wrap and packed in sturdy boxes. Stack them on top of each other.
- Pictures and mirrors should be wrapped in cardboard or heavy blankets and quilts. They should also be marked FRAGILE and stacked on their ends.
- Furniture with drawers can be utilized as storage space for knickknacks, pictures, china, silverware, small items, etc. Wrap them in tablecloths, towels, and blankets to prevent breakage. Larger appliances (refrigerators) make excellent “packing cases” for blankets, towels, and clothes.
- Shovels, rakes, hoes, and hoses can be stored together in an empty trash can. Stack extra cans inside one another.
- Tables having removable legs should be taken apart to give you more space.
- Sofas and love seats can be stored on the end to save floor space. Always place protective cover under the item on the concrete.
- If you stand mattresses on their side, prop them up so they stand up straight. Do not bend a mattress out of shape or it will become lumpy.
- DO NOT place heavy or sharp objects on top of upholstered furniture.
- Check your storage unit on a regular basis. Leaky roofs are extremely rare, but it can happen. We have prepared your unit with mouse poison and roach poison. If you need more, please let us know.
- If you are storing a lot of packing boxes, try to fill them up to the top, even if it’s just with padding and old newspapers. You don’t want your things shifting around inside the box.
- Pack your storage unit so your most valuable items are placed in the back.
- The humidity in your self-storage unit can cause your furniture to warp and your appliances to mildew unless planned ahead. Leaving a space between your belongings and the unit wall allows for air to circulate within the unit. You can also purchase a moisture absorber to help control the humidity. Prepare your space by placing a protective cover on the floor under your goods. Laying plastic sheeting on the floor and stacking boxes on top of wooden pallets can prevent condensation damage. Any concrete floor may become cold and damp.
- When storing a refrigerator in your unit, leave the door ajar. This will prevent mold from growing inside.
