TIPS FOR GETTING THE MOST FROM YOUR STORAGE SPACE


  1. Wedge appliance doors open. Freezer, refrigerator, washer and dryer cartons are excellent packing for bedding, towels and clothing. Always clean your stove before storing.


  1. Pack books flat to protect their spines. Do not place boxes directly on floor.  Books are heavy in bunches, pack in smaller cartons for easy lifting. Line all book cartons with plastic. (Garbage bags make good liners.)


  1. Store mirrors, windows and screens on edge, not flat. Crate them in a mirror pack if possible or package them individually with strong cardboard. Mark them so they won't accidentally be bumped.


  1. Take time when packing dishes and glasses. Place a layer of packing inside the bottom and top of cartons. Plates and glasses should be wrapped individually. It's best to stack plates on edge.


  1. Wipe the surface of bicycles, tools and other metal items with a slightly oily rag to prevent rusting.


  1. Save holiday decoration cartons which contained ornaments. Pad the ornaments with packing paper or newspaper.


  1. Protect furniture and mattresses with specially designed plastic covers. Place a pallet or plastic sheet on the floor and stand sofas & mattresses on end.


  1. Store records on edge. They are heavy, so be sure not to pack many per box.


  1. Store small, expensive items like stereos, TV's, etc., in the back of the storage space in marked boxes with pieces of large furniture in front of them. This will make it more difficult for thieves to gain access.


  1. USE uniform sizes of boxes and stack them shoulder high to maximize space.


  1. Prepare your storage space by placing a pallet or plastic sheet on the floor under your goods.


  1. Leave an airspace around the perimeter of unit to aid in the ventilation.


  1. Place frequently used items in front and leave a walkway to the rear of unit.


  1. Cover all your stored possessions with a light plastic sheet. (In humid area, allow for ventilation.)


  1. Make a complete list of all your goods stored, including brand names, product features and serial numbers. Keep the list safely away from the storage unit.


  1. To prove ownership, keep proof of purchase documentation like receipts, owner's materials, or warranties.


  1. Take photos or videotape your stored goods. Keep this material on a safe place away from the storage unit.
