Do you offer any Storage & Packing Tips ·
·Pack your things in similar sized boxes as they will be easier to stack.

·Use packing paper to fill in gaps in your boxes to keep the contents stable and boxes sturdy.

·Stack heavier items on the bottom – But be sure not to over pack your boxes so they don’t get too heavy or dangerous.

· Leave spaces in between stacking boxes to allow air flow in the unit.

· Use Pallets or Plastic Bins under cardboard boxes to keep them off the unit floor.

· Make a plan on how to organize your unit. Leave an aisle. This will save you time in the long run. You can stack chairs seat to seat and use larger items to store blankets, clothes and knickknacks inside.

· Label all boxes on ALL sides. This will also save you time in the long run.

· Make an inventory and map of your unit. This way you know where everything is.

· Pack items that you will be frequently accessing towards the front. This way they don’t get buried behind stuff.

· Take apart large items, such as bed frames, tables, etc. This will save space and prevent them from breaking. Be sure to keep all parts together. Keep screws and smaller parts handy by taping them to the larger item they belong to.

· If storing appliances be sure to thoroughly clean and dry them out first!!! Leave the door slightly open on refrigerators and microwaves to help prevent mildew.

· Rub a small amount of oil on metal tools, bikes, etc. This will help prevent rust. Be sure to keep away from things that you don’t want oil to rub off on.

· Store mirrors and paintings on end. Do not lay them flat. Wrap and indicate they are fragile.

· Lay blankets or cloth over and between furniture to prevent scratching.

· Dust covers are a very good idea. It will help keep your items a bit cleaner.

· Absolutely NO FOOD in your unit. This attracts unwanted guests. · You MUST drain all gas and oil from your lawnmowers, snow blowers, etc. It is against the law to store hazardous or combustible materials in a storage unit.

· Do not put moth balls in your boxes of clothes. This could stain your clothes.

· Put plastic or tarps on floor under furniture.
