Something else to consider when using self-storage would be to decide if you will need to rent a temperature controlled unit.  This is the best way to protect your items from the outside climate.  Let’s look at some items and decide the smart way to store those items.  As you place your belongings in a storage unit, put the larger boxes at the bottom of the stack and label each box.  If the boxes are packed full, they are less likely to collapse.

If you are storing appliances than you will need to follow a few extra steps as you put them in storage.  If there is any type of food appliances make sure you clean them extremely well.  Also, keep in mind that just because they look clean does not mean that there is not any small food particles left on the appliances that can attract bugs to your storage.  You may even want to use a non-toxic bug spray on those appliances, just in case.  Next if you are storing a refrigerator make sure you unplug it a few hours before you move it.  That way it can defrost and drain. The same would go for a washing machine or dish washer.

The next item on the list is how to keep dust off of your furniture and mattresses.  It is always wise to use a mattress, couch, or chair cover.  All of these tips come from many years of experience, so we hope you take a moment and implement these helpful tips.
