Helpful Tips !

  • Place all smaller items in uniformly sized boxes. Put heavier items on the bottom and lighter ones on top.
  • Use bubble wrap or peanuts to fill in the empty spaces.
  • Lawn Mowers: Drain the gasoline and oil from small engines.  This will protect both your stored property and the property of others from the dangers of fire and explosion.
  • Mattresses: Place mattresses in plastic covers to protect them from dust and moisture.
  • Leather items: Treat leather items (couches, clothes, etc) with a leather conditioner prior to storing them.
  • Keep furniture items off the floor by placing them on pallets which we have available for your use.
  • Clothes, Blankets, Quilts & Drapes:  Cover them in plastic and hang them from a bar, or place in wardrobe box.
  • For furniture and tables, place blankets over furniture to protect them from scratches and dust.
  • Breakable items: Wrap breakable items inside bubble wrap and store with linens.
  • Appliances.  Clean and dry all appliances prior to storage. Do not leave anything inside the appliance. Store appliances upright with doors ajar to allow ventilation.
  • Wipe metal surfaces with a few drops of machine oil to retard rust.

Organizing your storage unit

  • Leave a small airspace between your stored items and the wall the storage unit for ventilation.
  • Store items that will not be needed to the rear and item you will need access to towards the front.
  • Cover everything with plastic sheeting.
  • Pack your storage unit as tightly as possible.  Tighter packing helps to protect stored items from moisture and dust.
  • Use a high quality disc lock.  This lock is very difficult to cut and offers maximum protection for very little money.
  • Group boxes and items by category, winter clothes here, sporting items there.
  • Label all boxes.
  • Put up shelving for maximum storage space.
  • Create an inventory of contents in your unit.
