10. Can I pay my bill or make a reservation online?
1. Determine the Packing Materials You Need:
Boxes, storage cartons/containers, tape, marker, packing paper, bubble wrap, rope, drop cloths, blankets, furniture covers, mattress covers, dollies, dehumidifiers. Most of these items are available for sale at the facilities. (back to top)
2. Packing Your Boxes and Containers:
Fill boxes and containers to capacity. Use packing to fill empty spaces and protect fragile goods. Partially full or bulging boxes may tip or collapse. Seal all boxes and containers with tape.
Number all boxes and containers so you know how many you are storing. List the contents of boxes and containers on all four sides so you know what is inside. Make up an inventory of your stored items and keep it in a safe place.

4. Packing Your Storage Unit:
Stack lighter boxes on top of heavier ones. Use uniform size boxes for easy stacking. Place items that you need to access often in the front. Allow for walkways to access items in the back. Place items on boards or pallets to guard against dampness. Leave air space around the perimeter to aid ventilation.
5. Securing Your Storage Unit:
Use a good quality lock on the door. Cheap locks rust and do not provide good security.
Commonly Stored Items
All appliances should be cleaned before storing them. A refrigerator or freezer should be thoroughly dry and stored with its door slightly ajar. Large appliances make excellent “packing cases” for blankets, towels, tablecloths, and clothing.
2. Books and Documents:
Pack books flat to protect their spines. File boxes are the best way to store documents. Do not store fragile items with books or documents.
3. Clothing, Curtains, Drapes, and Linens:
To best preserve clothing, curtains and drapes, store them on hangers. Wardrobe boxes are ideal for this. Store linens in drawers, chests, or boxes.
Do not store anything combustible, such as, paint, paint thinner, gasoline, and solvents.
5. Dishes and Glasses:
Dishes and glasses should be wrapped in paper or bubble wrap to avoid breakage. Always place a layer of packing on the bottom and top of a box of dishes or glasses for extra support.
6. Furniture and Lamps:
Do not place heavy or sharp objects on top of upholstered furniture. Cover furniture with cardboard, blankets, or plastic to prevent against dust. Wrap lamp shades in paper and lamp bases with blankets. Furniture with drawers can be utilized as storage places for small items. Sofas can be stored on their end to save space.
7. Holiday Decorations:
Save the original packaging in which the decorations came in and place them back in these packages for storage. Pad ornaments and delicate decorations with packing paper. Place lights around a piece of cardboard and then in a box lined with packing paper.
Prop mattresses on their sides to save space. Make sure they stand straight to avoid from bending out of shape and becoming lumpy. Cover them with blankets or plastic for protection against dust and damage.
9. Pictures and Mirrors:
Pictures and mirrors should be wrapped in cardboard and marked with “Fragile”. Store them on their edges to save space.
10. Tools and Other Metal Items:
To avoid tools and other metal items from rusting, wipe them with a rag containing a few drops of machine oil. Shovels, hoes, rakes, and hoses can be tied in bundles and stored together in empty trash cans.
