Storage can be a life saver during a hectic move, and it’s doubtful that there is a move that isn’t hectic. There will be items that, for various reasons, you don’t want to move to your new home, but that you’re just not certain should be discarded.

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 (even those boxes that you never unpacked from the last move.)

Here are a few helpful storage tips:

  • If you’re storing anything with drawers, use that extra space for small items.
  • 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.
  • To prevent dust, seal boxes tightly with good quality packing tape.
  • As with your move, be sure to label all boxes.
  • Place boxes that contain fragile or delicate items on top of boxes packed with heavier, sturdier things.
  • Anything that you think you may need to use frequently should be placed at the front of your unit.
  • To keep items off the unit floor, use furniture pads or covers.
  • If you’re storing business files, leave a pathway to make access easier.
  • Do not store anything flammable or perishable.
  • Do not store hazardous or combustible materials. Drain fuel from lawnmowers, trimmers, and any other equipment.
  • Be sure to purchase a secure lock. For your convenience, we carry a wide range of high-quality locks.
