Moving, Renovating or Resizing – this is when you need a safe, secure storage unit. Since your packing anyway, anything that you’re not taking along will be ready to store.

Here are a few helpful storage tips:

  • Use same-size boxes when possible, to make stacking easier.
  • Avoid storing items in plastic bags as they are less sturdy and could trap moisture.
  • Fill each box completely to prevent the top or sides from crushing
  • To prevent dust, seal boxes tightly with good quality packing tape.
  • Be sure to label all boxes and on more than one side
  • If you need to store a bed frame or any other large furniture that needs broken down, keep all small parts in plastic bags and tape them to the item.
  • Wrap furniture legs with protective bubble wrap, furniture covers, or pads, to prevent damage.
  • Place boxes that contain fragile or delicate items on top of boxes packed with heavier, sturdier things. Place heavy items on the bottom of your moving van or self-storage unit.
  • If you’re storing business files, leave a pathway to make access easier.
  • Anything that you think you may need to use frequently should be placed at the front of your unit.
  • Be sure to purchase a secure lock.


We hope these tips are helpful and make your life a bit more pleasant.

Take a little time to plan and organize as you pack. This should make it easier to find things in the future and less likely that anything will get damaged during a move or while in storage.

When choosing a storage unit, factor in a little more room than your belongings take up in order to allow space for you to walk between stacks of items. This will help you to find what you need after you store it. Leave a little room between the walls and the stored goods to improve ventilation. Our storage units are sized from 1.2m x 6m x 3m to 3.5m x 10m x 4m. Each unit is easily accessible by car or Truck.
