Storage tips

  • Use plastic bins with a lid.
  • Don't store anything that is damp or wet.
  • Pallets or 2x4s are a great option to keep items off the floor and increase airflow.
  • Leave room around boxes for airflow.
  • Don't stack boxes too high.
  • Do stack boxes with the heaviest/largest on the bottom.
  • Clearly mark boxes for easy retrieval,
  • Put items you know you will need regularly (Holiday decorations etc.) at the front of the unit.
  • Consider sketching a quick map of where items are.
  • Do not store perishables or food in unit, including pet/animal food.
  • Check your unit monthly if possible.
  • Remember wet in-wet out. Tarp items if moving in rain or snow.
