Storage Tips

Stor-Eze‘s professional managers can help you choose a space that best fits your needs to make your storage experience as smooth as possible.

Tip #1 - Store items you'll need most often at the front of the unit.

Tip #2 - When you pack your storage unit, create a center aisle for access to all items.

Tip #3 - Do not place boxes directly on concrete floors, but use pallets or skids to allow air flow around and under items.

Tip #4 - If you are storing tables and other furniture, remove legs and store tabletops and sofas on end, to save space.

Tip #5 - Old photographs tend to curl over time. To keep them flat, place them between two pieces of cardboard and tape them together.

Tip #6 - Drain gasoline and oil from lawn mowers and other items with small engines.
