While using our state-of-the-art storage facility, here are 5 valuable tips to ensure your belongings remain safe and well-preserved for the long term:

1. Clean and Prepare Your Items
Before storing any items, make sure they are thoroughly cleaned and dried. Dust and dirt can accumulate during transportation and can lead to damage over time. Cleaning your belongings also prevents attracting pests that could cause harm to your items.

2. Use Quality Packing Materials
Invest in high-quality packing materials such as sturdy boxes, bubble wrap, packing tape, and furniture covers. Proper packing ensures that your items remain protected and intact during their stay in the storage unit.

3. Organize and Label Boxes
While loading your storage unit, organize your items and label the boxes clearly. This will make it easier for you to find specific items later without having to go through every box. Additionally, creating an inventory list can be helpful for quick reference.

4. Elevate Your Belongings
When placing your items in the storage unit, it's a good idea to elevate them off the ground, especially if you're storing items for an extended period. This helps protect your belongings from potential water damage, keeping them safe and dry.

5. Regularly Check and Maintain
While we provide a secure storage facility with constant video surveillance, it's always a good idea to visit your storage unit occasionally. Regular checks allow you to ensure everything is in order and address any potential issues promptly.
