• You need to find a good self-storage company, (like ours), to help you with all your storage needs. Inquire some things about the self-storage unit, such as the size of the units, the security details, the pest management factors, the access to your unit, the support services available and more.

• You have to know some important things about packing your items. If you are packing fragile items, then you need to wrap them up in old newspapers and place them in furniture drawers to safely transport and store them. Return your toys and smaller objects to their original packaging. Never pack perishable or combustible items in the unit and never drain any fluids before you pack away your garden equipment. Cover mattresses and elevate them from the ground.

• You need to ensure that you very carefully read the terms and conditions in the agreement form, so that you can avoid small errors, which may result in major complications. Focus on things like the payment date, the contacts section and the terms/condition section.

• You have to make sure that you plan your storage, by ensuring that all your items are in the correct place. Position them in such a way, that it allows you to access them easily and allow them to be ventilated as well.

• You must ensure that after you have carefully packed all your items into the storage unit, that you use a high quality lock to lock it. Frequently check your unit so that you can ensure that your items are safe and sound.
