Published on 2/23/2021

We have gathered 9 tips to help make your storage experience simpler! Learn where to store valuables, what size boxes to use, where to store sofas, and what kind of lock to use.

1. Plan your storage space. Place the items you need to access often in the front.

2. Put valuables in the back of the unit.

3. Try to use boxes of uniform size.

4. Place items on 2" X 4" boards. The floors are made of concrete and may get condensation.

5. To save space, sofas can be stored on the end of the unit. Always place a protective cover under the end as well as wrap cushions in plastic and place them on top.

6. Larger appliances make good storage containers for blankets and towels.

7. Tables with removable legs should be "broken down" to save space.

8. It is against the law to store hazardous or combustible materials (gasoline, solvents, paints, etc.). Drain the gas from cars, lawnmowers, power tools, boats, snowmobiles, etc.

9. Use a high-quality lock. A "disc lock" is preferable.
