GETTING READY TO STORE YOUR BELONGINGS
Make an inventory of all items in storage and keep it in a safe place.
Place items that you may need access to often in the front of the unit and allow for a walkway to the rear of the unit just in case you need to get to something in the back.
If possible, use pallets to raise your belongings off the floor and improve air circulation.
Do Not Store Anything Flammable.
Purchase storage insurance.
You are responsible for insuring your belongings.
Use a good heavy duty lock.
We recommend using disc type locks.
Check your unit frequently.
PACKING AND STORING
Use markers to label boxes for easy identification.
Empty all food items from containers.
Do not store perishables.
Pack boxes full, but still easy to lift.
Wrap dishes and glassware in paper or bubble wrap and store in good sturdy boxes.
Wrap pictures and mirrors in cardboard and stack them on end.
Disassemble tables or tear down bed frames if possible to save space.
Use the height of the unit to your advantage.
Stack items such as boxes.
Place lighter boxes on top.
Stack empty totes, boxes or crates inside each other to save space.
Place TV’s VCR’s and other valuable electronics toward the rear of the unit.
Leave doors on freezers or refrigerators slightly open to help prevent mildew.
Cover your items with sheets, blankets or moving pads. (Do not use plastic to cover items)
