Storage Tips

  • Use sturdy boxes and fill them to capacity to help avoid collapsing or tipping when they are stacked one on top of another.
  • Heavy items should be packed in smaller boxes so that they are easy to lift or carry (i.e., books and tools).
  • Always protect your fragile items by packing them with bubble wrap or foam pouches, etc.
  • You should always label your boxes for easy retrieval. Fragile labels and location labels (i.e., bedroom, kitchen) are excellent to use.
  • Utilize the height in your unit as this will save space later. Keep items you may need later at the front of your unit.
  • Do not lean your items against the walls; allow for ventilation behind and to the sides of your goods. Skids or pallets can also help elevate your items off the floor.
  • Cover your furniture with plastic to protect from dust or damage while transporting/storing. Mattress covers and sofa/chair covers are available at our on site retail store.
  • Make sure your appliances are dry when placed in storage. It helps to leave your refrigerator or freezer door slightly ajar.
  • Drain any gas and oil from yard machines before placing them in storage.
  • Never store any food or perishable items as they may attract rodents, or insects. Do not store flammable or toxic items.
  • If it's worth storing then it's worth insuring. You should always have content insurance while storing your valuables.
