Allow Extra Time to Pack and Organize.
Most people underestimate how long packing takes

Here are some storage tips to consider for preventing damage and how to pack your unit:

  • Use quality boxes and always pack them completely to prevent collapse.
  • Label boxes for easy identification.
  • Place a pallet or a skid between the concrete floor and your belongings.
  • Leave air space between items and the walls for ventilation.
  • Blankets protect items from scratching.
  • Protect mattress and box springs with plastic coverings.
  • Bed sheets work well as dust covers. Do not use plastic sheets.
  • Be sure to clean and dry all electrical equipment before storing.
  • Drain gasoline and oil from small engines like lawn movers.
  • Place items you are going to access the most in the front of the unit, and the ones you will never need during your stay, in the rear of the unit.
  • For security purposes, place the most valuable items at the back of the storage unit. Don’t store good jewelry or important documents.
  • Shelving helps to maximize the access of your items.
  • Be sure everything you pack is clean and dry to prevent mold and mildew.
  • Do not apply tape directly to wooden parts of furniture.
  • Do NOT store perishables, like food. Pet or human food.
  • Do not store flammable items such as fireworks or gasoline.
  • Thoroughly clean, disinfect and dry refrigerators, freezers, stoves and other appliances. Appliances with doors can be stored with the door slightly open, and some can be stacked on top of each other.
  • You want to make sure, if space allows, to leave an aisle for easy access to the items in the rear of the unit.
  • Make sure all drapes, curtains, linens and clothing items are washed and dry, or dry cleaned to avoid attracting pests.
  • Cover all upholstery with light cotton dust covers or sheets.
