How should I use portable storage?

Utilize Portable Storage

Portable storage is ideal for those who want to have regular access to their belongings but don't need them to be on-hand at home. When packing, take a few steps to ensure your portable storage unit is as functional as you need it to be:

  • Use plastic bins instead of cardboard boxes. They are easier to see through when it comes time to access your things.
  • Clearly mark each box or bin with its contents.
  • make a map of your storage unit so that you'll know exactly what area of the storage unit has what items.
  • If placing furniture in the unit, be sure to cover with a cloth or plastic to protect the surface.
  • Electronic equipment should be packed tightly to avoid moisture damage.
  • For fragile items, ask if there are temperature controlled units available.
  • Always secure your possessions with a heavy padlock.
  • Visit your unit regularly to check on items and keep everything dust-free.
