Selecting a Storage Space

Self-storage is a convenient, safe, and inexpensive way to store your belongings. Rental of storage space is determined by the total size of the items being stored. An efficiently packed storage space will cost less than a larger space. If you frequently use the space, a larger, well-organized space (racks and file boxes) may be more convenient. If you need assistance determining what size would work best for you, please see our sizing guide.

Prohibited Storage Goods

Common sense and government laws determine what may be stored.  You control access to your storage space. Never store live animals, food or perishables, liquids, explosives, flammable liquids and fuels, toxic materials, or other items that need a controlled environment.

Storage Considerations
  • APPLIANCES: A refrigerator or freezer should be thoroughly dry and stored with it’s door slightly ajar. Some goods can be stored inside large appliances and boxes can be stacked on top of stoves, refrigerators, and freezers. Make sure that stoves and cooking equipment are cleaned before they are stored.
  • FURNITURE: Place a pallet, corrugated cardboard mat, or plastic sheet on the floor and stand sofas and mattresses on end.  Disassemble beds and tables and wrap table legs in paper. If a table will not disassemble, place padding on the floor and place the table on its top with the legs pointing up. Use dresser tops for stacking cartons and dresser drawers for linens or small delicate items. Keep upholstery off the floor. Most lightweight chairs can be stacked “seat to seat” or placed upside down on tables, which cannot be disassembled. Finally, place a plastic dust cover on your furniture.
  • MIRRORS, WINDOWS & SCREENS: These items should be stored on edge, not flat.
  • Fill containers to capacity, partially full or bulging cartons may tip or collapse. Heavy items like books or tools should be packed in small boxes so they are easy to lift. Protect your fragile goods with packing (e.g. bubble wrap or wrapping paper) and place them near the top of your storage space.
  • Label boxes. Take home an inventory list of labeled boxes and their storage location, for easy reference when you need to locate your goods.
  • Pack the storage space carefully. Leave air space around the perimeter to aid in ventilation. Place a pallet on concrete floors and do not lean items against walls. Leave a walkway to the rear of your space for easy access. Use all space available, including height. Place frequently used goods near the door.
    Insure Your Goods In Storage

    The goods you place in self-storage spaces are the sole responsibility of you, their owner. Goods are not insured by the storage facility. Adding your storage space contents to your current homeowner or renter’s insurance policy is an easy, low-cost way to insure your belongings. If needed, feel free to ask our storage consultant for the name of an insurer who provides low-cost insurance coverage for your goods.
