It’s always a good idea to use the following list as a guideline to ensure your storage with Store-It is a safe, secure and efficient experience.
The goods you place in this facility are the sole responsibility of you, there owner.
Make sure your storage room door is locked. Try the door before you leave to make sure the latch is in the locked position.
Some padlocks have a serial number on the bottom of the lock. We recommend that you write it down and then scratch the number off. This number can be used to make duplicate keys.
Never tag your keys with the name of the facility and your storage room number. It might be tempting to somebody finding them.
Metal Items such as bicycles and tools can be wiped with a cloth containing a few drops of machine oil to help retard rust.
Appliances should be cleaned out and dry. Some goods can be stored in boxes inside large appliances. Remember to wedge the door slightly ajar on refrigerators or freezers during storage.
7. Books and documents should not be placed directly on concrete
floors, use pallets or skids to prevent moisture absorption. Pack
books flat to protect their spines and full out any empty pockets
inside boxes with packing material.
8. Pallets let the air circulate and prevent goods from being stored
directly on the concrete floor. They also are an excellent
precaution against unexpected water damage.
9. Do not store your goods tight against the walls or ceiling- let the
air circulate!!! Packing the room full could cause
condensation. Chemical de-humidifiers are available and Store-
It recommends its use. Damp Rid is such a product and is
available in the office for purchase.
10. We suggest that you cover your goods to protect them from
dust or misshapes We encourage the use of mothballs to deter
the presence of mice and other pests.
11. Remember, label the outside of your boxes for easy reference.
Place your most valuable items in the rear and the most
frequently used items up in front. Leave yourself a walkway to the
rear of the unit.
