Storage Tips

Helpful Hints for Storage Customers

  1. Place your storage items on 2x4 boards or on pallets to guard against dampness.  Any concrete floor may become cold and damp as they sweat and become wet.
  2. Prepare your space by placing a protective cover on the floor under your goods.
  3. Use a good quality lock on your door. Cheap locks rust and do not provide good security.
  4. Insure your contents in case anything happens. Storage facilities are not responsible for your contents.
  5. Do not store food of any sort – this attracts rodents.
  6. CAUTION: Do not store anything COMBUSTIBLE (i.e. paint thinner, gasoline, solvents, paint, etc.).
  7. Sofas and love-seats can be stored on-end to save floor space. Always place a protective cover under the item on the concrete. Cushions should be wrapped in plastic and placed on top.
  8. If you stand mattresses on their side, “prop” them up so they stand straight. They may tend to bend out of shape and become lumpy.
