Self Storage Tips You Can Really Use!

  1. Use pallets, 2 x 4's, plywood, bricks or other materials to keep your items off the floor of you unit.

  2. Use freestanding shelves to help organize your unit. They're inexpensive and easy to build.

  3. To prevent rust, rub a small amount of machine oil on metal tools, bicycles, and equipment.

  4. Rubbermaid or similiar style containers are great to store your items. They have tight fitting lids and stack easily.

  5. Keep the more valuable items in the rear of the unit. This will prevent others from seeing them when you are in your unit.

  6. Label the boxes on all six sides and keep a list for easy reference. This will save you time if you have to look for something in particular.

  7. Always put the heavier boxes on the bottom and the lighter ones on top of the heavier ones. This will prevent boxes from being crushed. Keep boxes off the floor.

  8. Make sure that all appliances are clean and dry before storing them. Leave appliances (especially refridgerators) slightly ajar to prevent mildew.

  9. If you are considering outside non climate control or storage containers, be aware of sudden and drastic temperature changes that will affect your belongings.
