Storage Hints

STORAGE HINTS

  • Preparing Items for Storage and How to Pack Items in Your Storage Unit
  • Follow the storage hints below to make your self storage experience go smoothly
  • Place all smaller items in uniformly sized boxes
  • Completely fill each box with heavier items on the bottom and lighter items on the top.
  • Uniformly sized boxes stack easier and conserve storage space.
  • Properly stored items will hold up much better in storage than items not stored properly.
  • Label boxed items so you will know what is in each box without opening it.
  • Do not store these items:
  • Furs, jewelry and other expensive items, irreplaceable items, any living thing, used tires, firearms, explosives, flammables of any kind (gas, diesel, oil, paint, etc.), drugs or drug paraphernalia, stolen items, any type of hazardous items, perishable items of any kind, hazardous waste materials of any kind, items that produce odors or any item that will in any way make other tenants or the manager unhappy.
  • More Storage Hints for Organizing Your Storage Unit
  • Use wooden pallets or boards underneath furniture and boxes. This will prevent condensation from damaging them.
  • Leave a small airspace between your stored items and the wall of the storage unit for ventilation.
  • Store items that will not be needed to the rear of the storage unit and items you will need access to toward the front of the unit.
  • Store heavy items on the bottom and lightweight items on top.
  • Store smaller, more valuable items to the rear of the storage unit and large items toward the front of the unit.
  • Cover everything with plastic sheeting. Wooden furniture should first be covered with blankets to avoid abrasion and moisture damage. Plastic sheeting will protect your stored goods from both dust and water damage.
  • Pack your storage unit as tightly as possible. Tighter packing helps to protect stored items from moisture and dust and reduces the space needed to store you property.
  • Use a high quality disc (round) padlock to secure your storage unit. This type of lock is difficult to cut or break and offers maximum protection for very little money. The cylinder locks we use at Bluffton Self Storage are the very best type of locking system.
