First Time Using Storage Facilities

Storage can be used for many different reasons. If you’re trying to sell your home you may want to free closets and rooms of extra clutter so that the place shows better. Maybe you have too much furniture for your new home; the kids have moved out but you can’t part with all their childhood memorabilia; you want to store items for different seasons; you have stacks of documents that you need to keep but don’t want them to take up living space. If any of these apply to you, then a storage facility may be your best option.

When considering storage, think about location. Are you going to need to access your storage building frequently? If so, aim for someplace nearby.

Also look at size. Storage units come in a number of different sizes, and you don’t want to end up with too little or too much space.

If you’re putting any metal objects into storage – like lawnmowers or file cabinets – it’s best to treat them with rust protector first, or at least wipe them down with an oily rag.

Under no circumstances should you keep anything flammable or combustible in your storage building. This means no gasoline, oil, cleaning fluids or paint thinner. If you’re storing any machinery that runs on gas, drain the tank before you store it.

There are many more storage tips, so be sure to ask facility representatives what else you should take into consideration on your first time looking to store.
