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.


                               ALWAYS REMEMBER TO LOCK YOUR STORAGE UNIT PROPERLY
