Storage Tips

  1. Do not store combustible items (i.e. gasoline, solvents, paint thinner etc.)
  2. Make an inventory list and keep in a safe place. Label boxes with area in which contents belong.
  3. Leave a centre aisle for easy access, and remember to stack everything at least two inches from the walls to allow air to circulate.
  4. Papers can be stored in file boxes or small boxes. However, books should be packed flat in smaller boxes because of their weight. Make sure any empty space in the box is stuffed with paper.
  5. Wardrobe boxes allow you to store your clothing on hangers. Shoes can be stored in the bottom of the wardrobe boxes, while folded clothing can be stored in boxes or dresser drawers.
  6. Frequent use items should be placed in the front of the unit.
  7. Place boards or pallets down to keep goods from dampness.
  8. Rent a suitable size of unit to keep from over stacking items and creating a hazard.
  9. Store mattresses straight up and down to save space.
  10. Place blankets over furniture with stuffing to prevent dust from settling.
  11. Fragile items should be wrapped with paper or bubble wrap and packed in sturdy boxes. Fill empty space in box with paper or cloths to eliminate movement inside box.
  12. Place lighter boxes on top of heavier ones.
  13. Take apart items that have easily removable parts to save space.
  14. Soft items such as blankets, duvets, sleeping bags etc can be wrapped and stored at the top of the unit or used as packing for other items.
  15. Wrap mirrors and pictures with protective wrap or use a special mirror carton and store them on end.
  16. Shelving should be placed against the walls. Boxes and small items should be stored on the shelves.
  17. Remember to keep refrigerator doors slightly ajar. Place an open box of baking soda or sprinkle some in your refrigerator to keep it fresh. Don’t forget to use the space inside appliances for storage too.
  18. Always ensure unit is locked and secure after storing items.
  19. Be sure to check if your current insurance policy covers goods in storage.
