What to store
You can store practically anything in a self-storage facility.
Perhaps you have a collection of fur coats and want them stored for
the summer, or you’re renovating your home and need to remove
your furniture for the duration. Whatever the case, self-storage is
an excellent option for clearing up space in your closets and rooms.
Electronics and musical instruments can be safely stored in the climate-controlled
environments of many storage facilities, without fear of damage to
their delicate parts.
If you own recreational vehicles, boats, or simply have more vehicles
than you use on a regular basis, self-storage can be a convenient and
inexpensive way to safely store them until they are needed. Because
vehicles can be damaged from inclement weather and extreme temperatures,
storing them away for the winter is one way to protect your investment.
Likewise, bulky sporting goods that take up space and are used on
a seasonal basis can be easily stored through self-storage. If you
only use them for the warmer months, you can rent a storage space for
the colder months and retrieve them when the weather is appropriate.
With so many possibilities of items that can be stored, there are
also some items that should never be put into storage. These include
hazardous materials like gasoline and other flammables. Likewise, personal
items of great value such as financial statements and personal files
should be stored with sensitivity. Most storage companies will not
permit the storage of firearms in their facilities.
