Storage Tips

  • Use furniture drawers for delicate items and then wrap and label them as "FRAGILE". Bubble wrap and packing paper are excellent for these purposes.
  • When packing toys or smaller objects, remember to fill boxes completely, stuffing open areas with plain newspaper to prevent collapsing when stacked.
  • Be careful not to store anything combustible (such as paint and chemicals) or perishable (such as food that is not permanently sealed).
  • When storing lawn and garden equipment, drain any fluids prior to storage to avoid corrosive damage.
  • Use trash cans to store shovels, hoes and rakes.
  • Always use high quality locks on your unit. Locks are available for sale - just ask your site manager for a recommendation.
  • When storing delicate heirlooms, use specially constructed boxes, such as wardrobe boxes, and use dehumidifiers to prevent mildew build up. Remember to label these boxes "FRAGILE."
  • Store furniture carefully.
  • Mattresses should be covered and stored flat on level surfaces.
  • Larger appliances, such as stoves or refrigerators, provide additional space for storing towels, blankets, etc.
  • Break down items such as table legs, and store tabletops and sofas on end to save space.
  • Use protective covers and treat wood surfaces before storing.
  • When storing business files and inventory, label all boxes and construct aisles so files are easily seen and accessible.
