Yesterday we focused on mistakes often made during a move. There are similar pitfalls to avoid when using a storage facility. Most are concerned with what’s stored inside your unit; they are all essential tips.
Don’t store any food items in your container – This prevents unwelcome guests
Do not use printed newspaper – The ink may smudge onto your items
Don’t forget to clean appliances and large items before you store them – The dirt and grime will only get worse
Do not assume homeowners/renters insurance covers items in storage – Get the additional insurance
Don’t store toxic chemicals or flammables – You wouldn’t want to be responsible for potential damages
Do not pack boxes so that they are too heavy to carry them – This is especially important with books
