Safe-Keeping Self Storage Tips

  • Have blankets, draperies, and clothing cleaned and ready to be packed or hanged in your wardrobe box.
  • When storing lawn mowers or other items with small engines, drain all gasoline and oil – safety!
  • Utilize your trash cans to store hoes, rakes, and other oddly shaped items.
  • Break down items such as dining tables and large sectional furniture to save space.
  • Don’t over-pack boxes – they can rupture and they can tumble or crush if stacked.
  • Heat-sensitive goods, such as photographs, wood furniture and video tapes, should be stored in a climate controlled environment.
