STORING


• Don't lean stored property against the walls of your unit. Whenever possible, store all boxes on wooden pallets or boards.
• Don't stack boxes so high that getting to them becomes dangerous or overly time consuming.
• Leave an aisle down the middle of your unit so that boxes and other items can be easily seen and identified.
• Make a complete list of all goods stored. Keep sales receipts, proofs of purchase and warranties.
• Take furniture apart to optimize space. Any bolts, screws or parts should be put in a plastic bag and taped to the underside of table tops.
• Chairs should be stacked seat to seat with paper or cloth between them.
• For heirlooms, use specially constructed boxes and utilize dehumidifiers to prevent mildew build-up.
• Use protective covers.
• Always use a high quality lock on your unit..
• You have sole responsibility for the goods you place in storage. Check with your insurance carrier for coverage, or ask a storage consultant for a list of low cost providers. Remember: if it's worth storing, it's worth insuring.

PACKING


• Leave the heavy objects towards the bottom.

• Label boxes on the top and sides.
• Wrap items separately prior to storing in boxes. Bubble wrap, linens or paper are recommended.
• Never store live animals, combustibles, (paint, chemicals, toxic materials) or perishable items (such as food).
• Remember to drain fuel from gasoline engines before storing.
• Leave appliance and equipment doors slightly ajar. Drain your washing machine and defrost your fridge/freezer.
• For clothing, use wardrobe boxes that allow you to hang them and save the shape of garments. Leave smaller garments in drawers.
• If possible, put smaller appliances in their original boxes.
• Fill in empty spaces with paper to prevent boxes from folding.
