Storage Tips

 

Here are some helpful tips and recommendations...

 

  • Don't forget to use valuable space inside drawers and larger appliances, such as stoves and refrigerators, to store small items: towels, linens, toys, etc.

  • Break down large items such as bed frames, tables, and large furniture, and don't forget to keep all parts (screws and smaller items) together by taping them to the item.

  • Wrap furniture legs with protective bubble wrap, furniture covers or pads to prevent scratching.

  • Label boxes on all sides for easy identification.

  • Make sure fragile boxes are placed on top of heavier, less delicate boxes. Be sure not to over pack boxes as they can get heavy and dangerous.

  • Place frequently accessed items towards the front of your unit. Less frequently needed items should be placed toward the rear of your unit.

  • Boxes that are tightly sealed with packing tape will prevent dust from entering.

  • Use furniture covers or moving pads to keep items off the floor of the unit.

  • When storing business files, leave a walkway down the center of your unit to make accessing items easier.

  • Do not store anything flammable (such as paint or other chemicals) or perishable.

  • Drain any fluids prior to storing snow blowers, lawnmowers, and other equipment; Do not store hazardous or combustible materials.

  • Purchase a secure, high quality lock. One of the most highly recommended is the disk lock, which is available in our office.

  • Wooden Pallets are available if you would like to use them for keeping items off of the floor of the unit.
