Freeport Storage provides people and businesses around Madison Wi storage units in variety of different size units to accommodate your needs. However, it is important to store your items appropriately. Below are helpful tips to use while planning what and how to store items in your unit.
- Rent the smallest amount of space you will need and pack the unit full.
- If possible, try to use uniform size boxes for easy stacking.
- Make up an inventory of your items and keep it in a safe place at home or in a safe deposit box away from the unit.
- Prepare your space by placing a protective cover on the floor under your goods.
- Place your storage items on 2x4 boards or on pallets to guard against dampness. Any concrete floor may become cold and damp.
- Plan your storage space. Place those items that you may need to access often in the front.
- CAUTION! Do not store anything COMBUSTIBLE (i.e., Paint thinner, gasoline, solvents, paint, etc.)
- Try to leave an aisle down the center of the storage unit for easier access. Leave a small space between the walls and boxes to allow for air circulation.
- Stack heavier boxes on the bottom and lighter boxes on top
- Be sure your boxes are strong enough to hold 25-30 pounds. (It is best not to put too much in each box.)
- List contents of boxes on all four sides; number the boxes and seal with tape.
- Dishes and glasses should be wrapped in paper and packed in sturdy boxes. Stack them on top.
- Pictures and mirrors should be wrapped in cardboard and marked “FRAGILE” and stacked on end.
- Furniture with drawers can be utilized as storage places for pictures, knick-knacks, china, silverware, small items, etc. Wrap them in tablecloths, towels or blankets to prevent breakage.
- Larger appliances make excellent “packaging cases” for blankets, towels, tablecloths and clothes.
- Put TV's and other electronics in the rear of your unit.
- Shovels, hoes, rakes and hoses can be stored together in empty trash cans. Stack extra cans inside each other.
- Tables that have removable legs should be broken down to save space.
- Sofas and love seats can be stored on end to save floor space. Wrap cushions in plastic and place on top of sofas.
- Avoid placing sharp or heavy objects on top of upholstered furniture.
- Cover stuffed furniture with cardboard or blankets to protect against dust.
- If you stand mattresses on their side, prop them up so they stand straight. They may tend to bend out of shape and become lumpy.
- Wipe any items made of metal; bikes, metal tables, tools, etc., with machine oil to prevent rusting.
- Notify insurance agent that your personal property is being stored at a self-storage facility. Purchase storage insurance if you do not have proper coverage.
- Utilize a good lock (stainless steel disc lock) to help prevent break-ins.
