Place all smaller items in uniformly sized boxes
Completely fill each box with heavier items on the bottom and lighter items on the top. Uniformly sized boxes stack easier and conserve storage space.
Pack books flat, not standing on end. This will protect the spines which will bend and warp over time if stood upright. Books are very heavy, so pack them in small boxes and don’t put them in boxes with other, more fragile, items.
Lawn Mowers, Quads, Motorcycles
Drain gasoline and oil from all small engines. This precaution will protect both your stored property and the property of others from the dangers of fire and explosion.
Cover mattress/boxspring with breathable fabrics to protect them from dust.
Treat leather items (couches, clothes, etc.) with a leather conditioner prior to storing them. Keep furniture items off the floor by placing them on pallets.
Blankets, Draperies and Clothing
Have blankets, draperies and clothing cleaned, then pack them on hangers in wardrobe boxes or totes.
Mirrors and Pictures
Store mirrors and pictures inside similarly sized knocked down boxes. This affords them protection from scratches and dust.
Furniture and Tables
Place blankets over furniture to protect from scratches and dust. Store boxes above or below to capitalize on storage space.
Photographs tend to curl over time. To keep them flat, place between pieces of cardboard and tape them together. Do not store irreplaceable photos. Photos and negatives take up very little space. Try to keep these items with you.
Wrap breakable items inside bubble wrap and store with linens.
Dishes and Glassware
Store these items in specially made boxes called dish packs.
Pillows and Toys
Store smaller items like this in large plastic garbage bags.
Label Boxed Items
Carefully and clearly label all boxes so that you’ll know what is in each box without opening it.

What is climate control?
Climate control storage refers to a temperature controlled space. It is heated in the winter and cooled in the summer. Using constant circulation of air to reduce humidity and moisture this helps to better protect your belongings. This is important when storing your valuables from the extremes of weather and seasonal changes.
We offer several different unit sizes in which the temperature is maintained between 60- 75 degrees.
Sizes include 5x5cc, 5x10cc, 10x10cc, and 10x15cc.
