SELF STORAGE TIPS
Advice for Packing, Moving, and Storing Your Belongings

At Lock It Up Self Storage, we have more than 30 years of experience in the storage business and know exactly what it takes to handle storing your items. Whether you are currently in the process of moving or you simply do not have enough room for all of your belongings, these tips should help you to store your items and have a positive experience. We are always available to answer the questions that you may have about our secure facilities.

 

A few storage tips we would like to share with you include:

It is important to plan ahead - put the items you use the least in back and the items you would like to access close to the front
Leave space or an aisle way for you to access items in the back
Protect your belongings with tarp, plastic wrap, or put sensitive items in plastic boxes to keep dirt and bugs out
If you are planning to stack boxes or other items, stack with the heaviest on the bottom and the lightest on top
Make use of the space you have by breaking down any items you can, and stacking chairs or other boxes
If you have any larger items like bookshelves or refrigerators, use them to store other items
It is important to also leave space along the edges of your unit for ventilation purposes
Ensure that you do not leave anything toxic or scented in your storage unit, such as gas-powered tools or gas tanks
