Storage Tips

  1. Leave a step stool in the unit so you can access items at the top of your boxes/shelves.
  2. Label all boxes on the sides and top so that you can see the list of contents no matter how you place your boxes in the unit.
  3. Keep a thick marker on a string in your unit. When you change the contents of a box, change the label.
  4. Remove oil and gasoline from all small engine equipment before it is stored (including lawn mowers, chainsaws, etc.).
  5. You will need to check with your current homeowner’s insurance policy or broker to see if items in storage are covered under your current policy. If you need additional insurance, our staff can recommend local agents who offer extra coverage.
