What Household Items Can Be Stored at a Storage Facility?

When Is It a Good Idea to Book a Storage Service?

If you have many personal items which you do not use every day but you will no longer have space for them when you move to the home you plan to, then before transporting everything to the new location, you may consider booking a self-storage for the items which you do not use on a daily basis and do not want to throw away.

Before you consider booking a storage service, it is a good idea to organize a garage sale and get rid of the items that you really do not want to use anymore. What is left unsold after that can be transported to a storage facility. Of course, it has to be packed well for this purpose. In order to deal with the packing yourself, you will need to wrap all the items and place them in boxes. When filling the boxes, place the heavier items on the bottom and the lighter ones on top so that nothing breaks down. Boxes of the same shape and size stack easily, so you better not use different boxes when packing.

Items which are most commonly stored in a self-storage facility
The most common items which our customers want to store are old books, CD and DVD collections, toys which are no longer used, furniture, mattresses, leather items, clothing, blankets, draperies, and mirrors. Cheap paintings and photo archives are also often stored in a self-storage. Many families also leave some of their appliances and lawn maintenance equipment (during the winter season when it is not in use) in a storage room.
