Storage Tips



Opening Hours

Preparation and smart packing are essential to keeping your stored possessions in good shape while helping you maximize space in your storage room.

Choose the right amount of storage space you will need to store your items.

Use all the space available, including height.

Leave a walkway in your space for easy access.

Drain gasoline and oil from lawn mowers and other items with small engines.

Don't place boxes directly on concrete floors, use pallets or boards to prevent moisture absorption.

Pack books flat to protect their spines.

Place frequently used items near door.

Label your boxes and take home a list of the labeled boxes for easy reference when you need to locate your goods.

Heavy items like books or tools should be packed in small boxes so they are easy to lift.

Protect your fragile goods with packing (i.e., bubble-pack or other) and place them near the top of your storage space.

Clothing, curtains, and drapes should be stored on hangers.

Dishes and glassware should be individually wrapped.

A refrigerator or freezer should be dry and stored with the door slightly open, use the space inside for additional storage.

Retard rust on bicycles and other metal items by wiping all metal surfaces with a rag containing a few drops of machine oil.


Never store live plants, animals, perishables, explosives, flammable liquids and fuels, toxic materials, or other items that need a controlled environment.
