Self Storage 101

Just because you're moving doesn't mean your clothes have to get all wrinkled.

When storing and packing your wardrobe: ■ Pack clothing that ordinarily hangs in a closet in a wardrobe carton. Wardrobe cartons allow you to hang and protect clothing items that could otherwise be wrinkled or damaged during a move. ■ You can put a single layer of shoes in the bottom of wardrobe cartons, but do not pack heavy items on top of shoes. ■ You should pack hats in large cartons and mark them as “fragile” so they aren’t crushed. ■ For bulkier items, such as sweaters and blankets, storage compression bags are the perfect packing solution. Compression bags work by removing the air in a packing bag, which shrinks the size of the bag and protects the contents from harm during transportation.

What People are Saying

The office staff is friendly and interested in helping you. The hours are convenient and the place is reasonably well kept. My only reservation is that they could do a slightly better job with pest control, but some of that responsibility is on fellow storage customers that leave food in their units even though the policy clearly states they can't do that. Overall a great place to keep your things while you figure out a more permanent place for them.
