11 Quick Tips for Storing

  1. Purchase a high-quality disc lock for your storage unit.
  2. Place furniture and mattresses on wooden pallets to protect from flooding. Put plastic wrap on top of fabric-covered furniture, and blankets on top of wood furniture.
  3. Don’t put the mattress on top of anything that can make it bend, or place heavy items on top of the mattress.
  4. Place book boxes on the bottom of stacks, as they are the heaviest items.
  5. Don’t stack heavy items on top of dishware.
  6. When storing appliances, leave the doors open to prevent moisture build-up.
  7. Store mirrors on their side.
  8. Place your TV on top of heavier items in the back of the unit.
  9. Items that are used less should go in the back of the unit.
  10. Items that are more expensive should go in the back of the unit.
  11. Leave a few aisles so you can easily access everything, and also leave a little bit of space between the wall and your things to allow for air to prevent moisture build-up.
