Storage Tips

Finding a storage unit can be an overwhelming task especially if you are not familiar with all of the options and features available. It's best to assess all of your storage needs before you look at sizes here at Security Self Storage Inc.

When Packing Up Your Self-Storage Unit

  • Try to use boxes that are a uniform size, they’re easier to stack (remember, keep the heavy ones on the bottom and the light ones on top).
  • Leave small walkways between the boxes and furniture in your storage unit so you can easily get to the items you want without having to move anything around.
  • If you’re storing a lot of packing boxes in your unit, try to fill them to the top, even if it’s just with padding. Boxes that are only half-filled tend to collapse if anything’s placed on them.
  • Pack your storage unit so that your most valuable items are at the back, and purchase a high quality padlock to put on the door.
  • Leaving a space between your stuff and the unit’s wall allows for air to circulate within the unit. Laying plastic sheeting on the floor and stacking boxes can prevent condensation damage. So can using old linens or other fabrics, instead of plastic, to protect your stuff from dust.
