Self Storage Tips

  • Use a shelf to store pool chemicals so you can keep them in single layers. If stacked, containers can crack and spill.
  • Remove chlorine from inflatables with common kitchen vinegar, then leave out to dry.
  • Make every piece of the grill spotless as to not entice rodents. We aim to keep our storage facilities clear of pests, you can help by leaving the food at home and cleaning off equipment that is used to cook.
  • Replace or fix used gardening tools. A large barrel is an easy way to store your shovels, picks, and hoes.
  • When storing beach equipment leave the sand at the ocean. Shake everything out and wash it before putting it back in storage.
  • Place a few Damp Rid containers around your unit to keep moisture from building up.
  • Wardrobe boxes will store articles of clothing that should not be folded in boxes. To avoid deep wrinkles, fold clothing loosely.
  • Fiberglass holds in moisture even after it has sat out for a few days, so store the boat, kayak, or canoe with DampRid or similar products surrounding the water toys.

When you are looking to switch your flip flops for snow boots or just want to get organized around the house, our self storage tips are what you need. We have several locations near you to assist in your next move, all you need to do is give us a call or check out our storage units online.
