Storage Tips & Guide

  • It is a good idea to thoroughly dry your refrigerator or freezer prior to storage with the door left slightly ajar.
  • Some smaller appliances may be stored inside large appliances; as well as, stacked on top to save space in your storage unit.
  • Food items should not be stored in your appliances or anywhere in your storage unit.
  • Storing your appliances in a clean condition will help maintain them in a serviceable condition while they are in storage.

Creative Ways To Store Furniture And Other Items.

  • Place a pallet, cardboard mat or plastic sheet on the floor and stand sofas and mattresses on end.
  • Disassemble beds and tables and wrap table legs in paper. If a table will not disassemble, you may place padding on the floor turning the table legs up.
  • Dresser tops could be used for stacking cartons, and dresser drawers could serve as storage for linens or small, delicate items.
  • Upholstery should be kept off the floor.
  • Most lightweight chairs can be stacked "seat to seat" or placed upside down on tables that could not be disassembled.
  • Placing a light cotton dust cover or bed sheet on your furniture will keep the dust and dirt off your possessions.
  • Mirrors, windows, and screens would be better protected if stored on edge and not flat.
  • Fill containers to capacity as partially full or bulging cartons may tip or collapse.
  • Pack heavy items like books or tools in small boxes for easy lifting. Use large boxes for light objects.
  • Wrap dishes and glassware individually, and pad the box with packing paper or bubble wrap. It's best to store plates on their sides.
  • Pack fragile goods with appropriate material and place them near the top of your storage space.
  • Label your boxes and make a list of contents for easy reference when you need to locate various items in a hurry.
  • Pack your storage space carefully; leaving air pockets around the perimeter for proper ventilation.
  • Be careful not to lean items against the wall.
  • Leave a walkway available to the rear of your space for easy access, and place frequently used items near the door.
  • Make good use of space available, including the height.
  • Protect furniture, including mattresses and box springs, with plastic covers, and stand on end.

Other Good Storage Tips

  • Use a good quality lock on your door.
  • Purchase storage insurance. You are responsible for insuring your belongings. Homeowners insurance may not be adequate.
  • Do not store flammables or toxic materials. Refer to rental agreement for more details.
  • If you're worried about the atmosphere/environment in the unit put down moisture absorbers, deodorizers and vermin bait.
  • Take a list of what you are going to be storing so that the manager can help you determine the correct size for your needs.
