Storage Tips

Print This Page

  Our managers are knowledgeable and experienced with packing, and can advise you as to the best methods and materials for your belongings.

Bedding, clothing, curtains and linens:
Clothing, curtains and drapes should be stored on hangers. Avoid storing anything that will attract rodents.

For ease in moving, pack with 1.5 cubic foot containers or less. Place books flat to protect their spines. Do not pack fragile items in the same box as books

Spray furniture with a good polish before storing. Stand sofas and mattresses on end. Disassemble all furniture. Use dresser tops for stacking items and the drawers for small items. Keep upholstery off the floor. Never store heavy objects on top of upholstery.

Glassware and dishes:
Wrap all glassware and dishes properly. Place a layer of packing material on bottom of box and top of items once packed. Dishware should be stacked on edge. Use glass packing inserts for glasses.

Pack lampshades separately, and do not use newsprint or inked papers to wrap them.

Always use special packing material, and always store on the edges, never flat.

To stop rust, wipe metal objects with cleaning oil before packing. Long handled tools should be tied in bundles.

Washing Machines:
Brace the spinning mounted motor with the tub. Seal up the ends of the hoses in case of leaks.

Other Helpful Hints:

- Label all boxes on each side and keep a list of what is in each box according to its label. Keep the list available both inside the unit and at your home
- Use a good quality padlock on your storage unit
- Do not store combustible or flammable material
- Be sure to insure your personal property.
- Take it easy on your back by keeping packing boxes under 30 pounds and remember to lift with your legs.
