Storage Tips

Sometimes moving and storing can be overwhelming; so we've assembled some packing and storing tips we hope you will find useful:  

Packing


  • Fill boxes to the top; use paper to fill empty spaces; boxes which are filled partially may collapse when stacked.
  • Do not fill large boxes with heavy items such as books.  Keep books and other heavy items in small boxes so they are easy to manage.
  • Leave heavy items towards the bottom.
  • Wrap fragile items before placing in boxes.  
  • Label boxes on top and sides and remember to mark "Fragile" if applicable.
  • Drain fuel from gasoline engines before storing. 
  • Drain any fluids from lawn and garden equipment before storing
  • Do not store flamable items in your unit.
  • Cabinets, drawers, and large appliances, ie., refrigerator or stove provide additional space for storing "soft" items such as clothing, blankets, towels, etc. 

Storing

  • Try to leave a passageway in your storage unit in case you need to access an item immediately.
  • Place any items you think you might need near the front of the unit.
  • Take advantage of the height of the storage unit by stacking boxes, but be careful so items do not fall.
  • Make a complete list of all your items you decide to store with us and label your boxes.  This will make unpacking and locating your items easier.
  • Use specially constructed boxes for heirlooms.
  • Use protective covers on your furniture and mattresses.
  • To optimize space, remove table legs if possible.  Remember to place any bolts, screws or parts in a plastic bag and tape to the underside of table top.
  • Our staff will be pleased to discuss with you any questions concerning packing and storing.
