  Storage Tips

  • Plan your storage space. Place those items that you may need to access often in the front. Allow for walkways.
  • Make up an inventory of your items and keep it in a safe place at home or in a safe deposit box.
  • Place your storage items on 2x4 boards or on pallets to guard against dampness. Any concrete floor may become cold and damp.
  • CAUTION! Do not store anything COMBUSTIBLE (i.e., Paint thinner, gasoline, solvents, paint, etc.)
  • Use uniform size boxes for easy stacking. Be sure your boxes are strong enough to hold 25-30 pounds. (It is best not to put too much in each box.)
  • List contents of boxes on all four sides; number the boxes and seal with tape.
  • Stack lighter boxes on top of heavier boxes.
  • Dishes and glasses should be wrapped in paper and packed in sturdy boxes. Stack them on top.
  • Pictures and mirrors should be wrapped in cardboard and marked "FRAGILE" and stacked on end.
  • Furniture with drawers can be utilized as storage places for pictures, kick-knacks, china, silverware, small items, etc. Wrap them in tablecloths, towels or blankets to prevent breakage.
  • Larger appliances make excellent "packaging cases" for blankets, towels, tablecloths and clothes.
  • Shovels, hoes, rakes and hoses can be stored together in empty trash cans. Stack extra cans inside each other.
  • Tables having removable legs should be broken down to save space.
  • Sofas and love seats can be stored on end to save floor space. Always place a protective cover under the item on the concrete. Cushions may be wrapped in plastic and placed on top.
  • Cover stuffed furniture with cardboard or blankets to protect against dust.
  • If you stand mattresses on their side, prop them up so they stand straight. They may tend to bend out of shape and become lumpy.
  • Rent the smallest amount of space you need and pack the space full.
  • Prepare your space by placing a protective cover on the floor under your goods.
  • Do not place heavy or sharp objects on top of upholstered furniture.
  • Use a good quality lock on your door.
  • To prevent bug infestation and rodents, no food or food items should be stored. (If absolutely necessary, food staples should be sealed in plastic zip locks within another plastic bag.)
  • Put TV's and other electronics in the rear of your unit.
