Storage Tips

Packing your treasures can be less of a chore with these helpful hints:

• Get plenty of boxes. Box as much as possible to protect your items from getting dirty and/or dusty.

• Use uniform size boxes.  They are easier to stack if the boxes are all the same size.  Naturally, keep the heavier boxes on the bottom with the light ones on top.

• Don't worry if you don't have uniform size boxes. Use smaller cardboard boxes for heavier items such as books and save the larger boxes for lighter items such as bedding.  Keep in mind that the lighter items may collapse under the weight of a heavier box.

• Store "full" boxes.  Half-filled boxes may collapse if anything is put on top of them.  Use bubble wrap, packing peanuts, padding and/or crumpled newspapers in and around your items to fill your box.

• Check out clothing retail stores for FREE cardboard boxes. If you need them, ask for hangers. 

• Seal all boxes with masking or duct tape.  Mark boxes with a permanent marker for easy identification.

• Be careful not to "over stack"  in order to prevent boxes to topple over and fall.

• Create aisles or walkways between your things so you can access items easily.

• Make a "map" of your stored items -- where and what you placed in which box.

• Keep items you plan to use often, such as holiday decorations, close to the front for easy access.

• Storage units are not temperature controlled.  Take measures to prevent mold and mildew caused by humidity.  Furniture may warp due to humidity so take precaution.

• Leave a space between your items and the unit wall; this will allow the air to circulate within the storage area. Also to prevent condensation damage, layer plastic sheeting on the floor and stack boxes atop pallets.

• Stand sofas and mattresses on end to save space.  Place mattress on the long end and raise above floor level, possibly with a pallet, or put the mattress on a sheeting for added protection.

• When storing a clean, empty refrigerator, leave the door open slightly.  Having the door ajar will prevent mold from growing inside the frig.

• All appliances should be clean and dry. Drain washing machines and tie down hoses before placing the in the storage unit. Bicarbonate of soda, most commonly known as baking soda, is an excellent natural cleaner.

• When storing ANY motorized equipment, gas tanks should be filled no more than 1/8 of a tank.

• To prevent dust, use fabrics such as old linens (i.e.: bed sheets and blankets) to protect your items such as upholstered furniture such as sofas.  Stay away from using plastic coverings which may cause condensation.

• Any type of fuel can/container MUST be empty.  NO flammable materials should be stored within the unit.
