HELPFUL STORAGE TIPS
  • INSPECT YOUR STORAGE SPACE: The space should be clean with a door in good working order.
  • DETERMINE THE PACKING ACCESSORIES YOU NEED
    Paper, bubble-pack, tape, rope, drop cloths, polyurethane sheeting, furniture covers, pallets, skids, dehumidiflers, file boxes, and storage cartons. Some or all of these items may be for sale in the rental office.
  • FILL CONTAINERS TO CAPACITY
    Partially full or bulging cartons may tip or collapse. Protect your fragile foods with packing and place them near the top of your storage space.
  • LABEL BOXES: Keep a list of labeled boxes at your office for easy reference when you need to locate your goods.
  • PACK THE STORAGE SPACE CAREFULLY
    Leave air space around the perimeter to aid ventilation. Place a pallet on concrete floors and do not lean items against walls. Leave a walkway to the rear of your space for easy access. Use all the space available, including the height and place frequently used goods near the door.

STORAGE SPACE RENTAL AGREEMENT
For your protection, a storage facility provides a written agreement. Read it thoroughly and ask the storage consultant to answer your questions. Make note of your payment date to see if the agreement covers prorated rental periods. Also find out how and when your security deposit is refunded or forfeited upon termination of the agreement. If you change your address or phone number, be sure to notify the storage facility in writing.
INSURE YOUR GOODS IN STORAGE
The goods you place in self storage spaces are the sole responsibility of the occupant. Goods are not insured by the storage facility. Check with your insurance provider to see if your coverage already has a provision for items stored outside your facility - you may already be covered.
PROHIBITED STORAGE GOODS
Common sense and state laws determine what may be stored. You alone control access to your storage space. Never store live animals, perishables, liquids, explosives, flammable liquids and fuels, toxic materials, or other items that need a controlled environment. Disconnect the battery cables to your equipment. Check with the facility manager regarding their policy on storing gas tanks full or empty.
ELECTRICAL EQUIPMENT:
All equipment should be thoroughly cleaned and dry before it is stored. Any equipment with sealing doors, such as a refrigerator, should be stored with its door slightly ajar.
METAL EQUIPMENT, TOOLS AND OTHER METAL ITEMS:
All equipment needs to be clean. To retard rust, wipe all metal surfaces with a rag containing a few drops of machine oil.
FILES, RECORDS AND OTHER DOCUMENTS:
Pack books flat to protect their spines. Do not place boxes directly on concrete floors, but use pallets or skids to prevent moisture absorption. Use packing to fill out empty pockets in the boxes. Do not pack fragile items in the same box with books and do not overload.
FABRIC ITEMS:
All items need to be clean and free from anything that may attract pests. Some facilities sell boxes which will help protect your items.
FRAGILE ITEMS:
Place a layer of packing inside the bottom and at the top of boxes containing fragile items. All items should be individually wrapped placing the most fragile items at the top of the cartons. Again, fill all pockets with packing. When stacking boxes that contain delicate items, place these on top of those containing heavy items. Label all boxes containing delicate items "FRAGILE".
OFFICE FURNITURE:
Place a pallet, corrugated cardboard mat, or plastic sheet on the floor and stand sofas on end. Disassemble furniture and wrap table legs in paper. If furniture, such as a table, will not disassemble, place padding on the floor and place the table on its top with legs pointing up. Most lightweight chairs can be stacked "seat to seat" or placed upside down on other furniture. Keep upholstery off the floor. Finally, place a light dust cover over your furniture. Some facilities may sell covers for your convenience.
