Move In / Packing Questions
- Is there anything I need to do to prepare my unit before I move in my belongings?
Your unit will be clean and ready for move in. But you might still want to prepare it by placing plastic on the floor under your goods to help keep them clean and reduce moisture. You might also consider placing pallets on the floor to increase airflow in your unit.
- How do I pack my storage unit for easiest access to my items?
There are a few key features to a well organized storage unit. Most importantly always leave a clear center walkway to the rear of your space for easy access. Clearly label all boxes and face the writing towards the walking isle. Try to utilize the full height available by installing shelving or carefully stacking boxes and never lean items against the walls. Lastly don’t forget to place frequently used goods near the door.
- Can I store my gasoline powered tools and vehicles?
You can store gasoline powered tools and vehicles like lawn mowers, power tools, boats, snowmobiles, and cars. But since it is both unsafe and illegal to store gasoline you must drain all gasoline before storing them.
