Self Storage Tips


  • Stack heavier items on bottom and create aisle ways to give you access to items stored in the back of the storage unit.
  • Keep items that might draw moisture (wood/upholstery) up off the floor or provide a moisture barrier between the floor and your items.
  • Store items you will need most often near the front of the storage unit.
  • Understand and abide by all provisions of the storage lease agreement.
  • Check out our storage unit specials before renting to get the best rate.
  • Wipe all metal surfaces with a rag containing a few drops of machine oil to alleviate rust.
  • Label all boxes on all sides. This will save you time in the long run.
  • Avoid stacking things directly against the wall to leave room for some air flow.
  • Use trash cans to store shovels, hoes and rakes.
  • Drain gasoline and oil from lawn mowers and other items with engines.
  • Be sure not to over pack boxes so they do not get too heavy and dangerous.
  • Clean out appliances before storing and leave doors open on microwaves and refrigerators slightly open to prevent mildew.
  • Completely clean & sweep your unit upon moving out.
  • Use our storage unit size guide to find the right storage unit for you.


  • Store any sort of food item in a unit as it will attract rodents.
  • Use the unit to store firearms, illicit drugs or drug paraphernalia, live animals, liquids, explosives, flammable liquids and fuels, toxic materials, or other items that need a controlled environment. (It’s also against the law!).
  • Ever hesitate to call us with any questions or concerns about what you cannot store in the unit.
  • Leave your unit unlocked when it’s unattended.
  • Assume we know you have moved out until you have called our office and spoke to one of our customer service team members.
