TIP:  Always inspect the storage unit You are renting  

         to make sure it meets with Your satisfaction.

TIP:  Always prepare Your storage unit floor by placing

         pallets, cardboard, and/or plastic down first.

TIP:  Leave a small path down the center of Your 

         space. This is the single biggest time saver you

         will find.

                                     TIP:  Keep your lawn/garden tools in an empty garbage can. This

                                               keeps them together and keeps sharp edges away from You.

                                      TIP:  Pack all your boxes as full as possible but not over full.

                                                Half full boxes might collapse. Bulging boxes tip over when

                                                stacked. Store heavier boxes on the bottom. Label all boxes.

                                      TIP:  Avoid wrinkled clothing by using wardrobe boxes, which

                                                 allow clothing to be hung. Each of our locations have them

                                                 for sale.

                                      TIP:  Use mattress covers or drop cloths to protect from any dust.

                                      TIP:  Don't lean items against the wall of your storage unit. Also

                                               leave  a little room in front between your items and the roll up

                                               door. If items tip over and  wedge themselves against the

                                               door it will be very difficult to open the door.
