Tips and Hints

Plan your storage space. Place those items you may need to get to more often in the front.

  • Rent a heated unit that won’t be affected by humidity or temperature extremes.
  • Never store food products, seed or anything that may attract rodents.
  • Leave a center aisle for easy access.
  • Use free standing shelving to organize and utilize the height of your unit.
  • Fragile items, dishes and glasses should be wrapped individually in newspaper, dishcloths or bubble wrap and packed in sturdy boxes with cushioned tops and bottoms.
  • Furniture with drawers can be utilized as storage places for knick-knacks, china, silverware, and other small items. Wrap them in your tablecloths or towels.
  • Use uniformly sized boxes for easy stacking. Be sure the boxes are strong enough to hold the weight of the items being packed. Itemize the contents of boxes on all sides and seal them with packaging tape.
  • Take the legs off of tables and store them on the side to save space.
  • Sofas and loveseats can be stored on end to save floor space. Always place a protective cover under the end that rests on the floor. Cushions should be wrapped in plastic and placed on top.
  • Cover soft furnishings with furniture covers, plastic or old bedding to protect against dust.
  • Mattresses should be propped up so they stand straight to prevent them from bending out of shape, and should be covered to protect them against dust.
  • Use the space inside appliances for storage, too. Remember to keep the refrigerator door open slightly and place an open box of baking soda inside to keep it fresh smelling.
  • Pictures and mirrors should be wrapped in cardboard or padding, marked “FRAGILE” and stacked on end.
  • Drain gas and other flammable liquids from power equipment.
