Do I need Climate Controlled Self-Storage?
Air conditioning helps extend the life of all your stored items. Many of our customers have storage items that should be air conditioned, including: computer equipment, electronics, leather, candles, wood furniture, delicate fabrics, pianos, books, pharmaceutical samples and important documents.
Fill Boxes To Capacity
Make the most of your packing effort. Filling your boxes to capacity may help prevent tipping or collapsed boxes. Pack your heaviest items such as books or tools in small boxes. Avoid stacking heavy items too high.
Wrap Your Fragile Items!
Fragile boxes should be placed at the top of the stack to keep them free from the weight of other boxes. Wrap your fragile items with necessary packing material to insure their safety while in storage.
Labels Make Storage Simple...
Clearly labeling your boxes makes managing your stored items simple. Making an inventory list of boxes for quick reference will help you quickly find the items you want with little or no hassle.
Dust Covers Recommended...
We recommend covering any open clothing, mattress or box springs and upholstered items. While we make an effort to provide you with the best kept facilities, dealing with some dust is a fact of life in storage.
Stay Off the Walls...
Leaving some space around the perimeter of of your storage unit will help manage ventilation. We recommend not stacking items against the walls. You might consider leaving a walkway to the rear of your unit. It is OK to use all the space available, including the height of your storage unit. Items such as bed frames should be disassembled. Removing table legs when needed can help maximize your usable space.
Store Priority Items Near the Door...
Consider placing frequently used and seasonal items near the door. If you've ever had to crawl over a pile of boxes looking for that one missing box of holiday decorations, you'll really appreciate the value of priority placing your items.
Don't Be a Stranger...
It is a good idea to visit your storage unit from time to time... just to keep an eye on things.
