Fail-safe ways to keep your belongings in good shape

  • Each unit has concrete floors, which tend to sweat and may damage cardboard boxes. We suggest placing your boxes on wood pallets to protect them from damage.

  • Find boxes and anything else you'll need for storage before bringing in your items.

  • Keep a list of all the items you have stored, so you'll know where to find everything.

  • Leave some space for good ventilation.

  • Leave a walkway so you can easily access your items, no matter where they are placed in the unit.

  • Keep frequently used items closer to the door.

  • Wrap electronics and furniture in plastic or linen.

  • Keep fragile items in safe places and mark them as “fragile”.

  • Store sofas and mattresses at the back of the unit.  

  • Wipe metal items with a rag containing a few drops of oil to prevent rusting.  

  • Wrap mirrors, framed art or pictures in cardboards or Bubble Wrap.

  • Label boxes on all sides so you know what's in them.
