Why use self-storage?
Self-storage can provide an affordable solution to any situation in which extra space is needed, and just about anything can be stored in self-storage facilities. Self-storage unit sizes can range from a small unit to hold files or clothing to larger units that can store items as large as boats, cars, RVs and the contents of your home.

Tips for packing and storing your belongings
Self Storage is a convenient, safe, and inexpensive way to store your belongings. Proper planning will make for an efficient and cost effective storage experience. If you plan or need to frequently use the space, a larger space may be more convenient than one packed to capacity. Here are some helpful suggestions to keep your valuables and keepsakes stored safely.
Plan your storage space. Place items in front that will be accessed frequently. Allow for walkways.
Completely fill each box with your heaviest items on the bottom and lighter items on top.
Try to keep your boxes in uniform sizes. They are much easier to stack that way.
There are prohibited storage goods that every storage facility will NOT allow. Common sense and state laws determine what may be stored. Be careful not to store anything combustible, (such as paint and chemicals), or perishable, (such as food that is not permanently sealed).
Avoid leaning items against the walls of the storage unit, and leave a small space between the goods stored and walls.
Pictures and mirrors should be wrapped in cardboard and marked "FRAGILE." Stand them straight up ... never flat.
