Tips when using Storage Units


Things you should do:

  • Label everything ! Use color coding to categorize boxes.
  • If you have the original boxes for items you store, reuse them so you can identify them more easily.
  • Leave an aisle in the center so you can utilize the whole depth.
  • Keep cardboard boxes off the floor.
  • Put heavier boxes on the bottom.
  • If you use items frequently, store them near the front.
  • Metal items can rust when stored - rub in a little machine oil.​


Things you shouldn’t do:

  • Store food, or flammable items.
  • Wrap things in plastic, since moisture can build up.
