Storage Tips

  1. Organize your items
    • Using boxes of the SAME SIZE will allow the easiest stacking. Fill the boxes to their capacity in order to prevent collapsing or tipping box corners.
    • Try to leave an aisle down the center of the storage unit for easier access. Leave a small space between the walls and boxes to allow for AIR CIRCULATION.
    • Large trash bins are great for storing items likes shovels, rakes, etc.
    • Furniture with drawers can be utilized as storage places for small household items, like pictures, small boxes etc.
    • Pack the items that you are least likely to access in the back of your unit, so that the items you might need are always handy and near the front.
  2. Protect your items
    • STORE ITEMS ON PALLETS to avoid condensation in your personal effects. Pallets are inexpensive and will help keep out water and insects, and also allow air to flow through your belongings.
    • Wipe any items made of metal; bikes, metal tables, tools, etc., with machine oil to prevent rusting.
    • Cover stuffed furniture with cardboard or blankets to protect against dust.
    • Pack books flat to protect their spines and place a fabric softener sheet in the boxes to prevent mildew smell.
    • Valuable items should be placed out of sight at the back of the unit.
    • Ensure all plastic or shrink wrap is REMOVED from items to prevent the collection of condensation, which can cause damage and lead to mold and mildew.
    • Remove mattresses from mattress bags - old linens or blankets work well as drop sheets or protective covers.
    • Pack items within the storage unit in such a fashion as to encourage air circulation between boxes and furniture.
    • If moving in to your storage unit on a rainy or snowy day, ensure to dry off the surfaces of any items as you place them in your storage unit.
    • Use old sheets to cover and protect upholstered or wood furniture if you plan to stack other items on top.
    • When packing heavy items, remember that small to medium sized boxes will be the easiest to lift and move around. DO NOT store large heavy boxes on top of smaller lighter boxes because they can fall and break open.
  3. Do not store
    • DO NOT store perishable food items, as these attract rodents.
    • DO NOT store explosives.
    • DO NOT store live animals.
  4. Motorized items
    • When storing motorized items (i.e. a lawnmower, quad, snowmobile, or vehicle), PLACE CARDBOARD UNDER THE MOTOR, so that any drips are absorbed by the cardboard to minimize the risk of damage to other items you have stored.
