What’s a Storage Danger

Summer’s here and for many of our tenants at the Brooksville StoreRight site that means breaking out the grill for a backyard barbecue and stocking up on fireworks for the big 4th of July celebration. So once the party’s over what can you put back into your storage unit?
When you sign your rental agreement with StoreRight Self Storage, there is a clause which prohibits storing hazardous materials in your rental unit. Most things that are hazardous are pretty obvious. You are probably aware that you should not store propane tanks, charcoal lighter fluid, fireworks, or ammunition in your self storage unit. These things are designed to burn or blow up. In this part of Florida, summer temperatures can run well into the 90’s making temperatures inside a standard unit over 100 degrees. At these temperatures this is a recipe for a disaster.
Some other less obvious hazardous materials might include aerosol cans, auto batteries, solvents and lawn chemicals. Check the packaging for storage temperatures recommendations.
If you are in doubt, please call your rental office. The Brooksville StoreRight office will be glad to assist you.

Self Storage Tips

StoreRight Self Storage is glad to provide you with the following tips for storing your valuable items.

Self Storage Tips

Here are some tips to help you get the most out of your storage unit:

  • Leave a Walkway to the Rear of the Unit – this provides better accessibility to all your items.
  • Disassemble items such as bed frames to maximize space.
  • Place frequently used items near the door.
  • Fill containers to capacity. Partially full or bulging cartons may tip or collapse.
  • Store couches (except sofa beds) on end to maximize space.
  • Place fragile items near the top of the unit to prevent crushing.
  • Label your cartons and take home a list of the labeled cartons for easy reference. (Labels are available in our office).
  • Take full advantage of your space. Use the full height if possible. Shelving helps organize your space.
  • Add bay leaves to boxes to ward off most insects and household pests.
  • Keep refrigerator and freezer doors slightly ajar and clean before storing. Use the space inside for storing other kitchen items.
  • Wrap mirrors and pictures with paper pads or use mirror boxes. Never store flat.

Packing Tips

Here are some packing tips to help you save time and protect your valuables:

  • Use strong, stackable boxes and containers.
  • Fill boxes completely to keep them from collapsing and damaging belongings.
  • Pack books and heavy items in small boxes for easier lifting.
  • Put the heavy boxes on the bottom and the light ones on top.
  • Purchase special boxes for dishes and fragile items.
  • Label each box on several sides and indicate if it is fragile and what room it should go in.
  • Disassemble furniture for easier moving and storage.
  • Take advantage of the tops of dressers and the like to stack boxes and other items.
  • Stand mattresses on end and break down bed frames.
  • All stored items should be clean of food stains and particles.
  • Save money and room by using towels and blankets to wrap fragile items.
  • Use wardrobe boxes to hang clothing; remember to fill the bottom of the wardrobe box with shoes, pillows, or other light items.
  • Protect furniture with shrink-wrap and blankets or pads to avoid damage.

Other Handy Packing Tips

Appliances: Make sure all refrigerators and freezers are thoroughly dry. Store them with the door ajar so air can circulate inside. Be sure the doors on other types of appliances are securely shut, and always clean your stove before moving.

Bedding and Linens: Use your dresser drawers when possible to store blankets, pillows and sheets.

Mattresses: Use special mattress bags or even old mattress covers to keep them clean during moving and storage.

Chairs: Invert light chairs so they are “seat-to-seat.” There’s usually space between the legs for small, lightweight items.

Chest of Drawers: Take advantage of drawers for packing many light household items such as photos and clocks. If the items are fragile, be sure to use towels or other padding to protect them from breakage.

China and Glassware: Plates should be wrapped individually and stacked on edge. Always make sure you have plenty of cushioning below and above all your glassware. Glasses should also be wrapped individually with cushioning and put on the top layers of any of these boxes with more cushioning above them. Make sure your boxes are firmly packed so they will not be crushed.

Clothing: It’s best to hang clothing whenever possible. Use wardrobe boxes when possible. These come with a clothes rod for easy hanging.

Drapes:   Fold your drapes carefully and pack them in dresser drawers. Once in storage, it’s best if you can hang them on hangers.

Fragile Items: Many small fragile items can be stored safely in your dresser drawers surrounded by blankets and pillows.

Lamp Shades: Use clean packing paper to wrap each lamp shade individually. Often you can “nest” several lamp shades together. Use a special box for all of these shades, rather than packing them with other items

Mirrors:  Always stand mirrors on edge. It’s best if you can crate them, or at least pack them individually with strong cardboard and mark them so they won’t accidentally be bumped.

Tables: Take the legs off tables when possible and wrap separately. This prevents possible damage and also saves space. Tape the hardware to the underside of the table, so it is not misplaced.

Tools: Don’t put too many heavy tools in one box. If you are storing your tools in non-climate controlled storage it’s a good idea to wipe with a slightly oily rag to prevent rusting. Long handled rakes, hoes and shovels should be cleaned, oiled and tied together.




College Storage Tips

Courtesy of Storage 101, here are some tips on moving into self storage for College Students and their families: 

1 – Packing & Moving

If you’re a college student, you’ve probably either just moved away from home for the first time or else you’ve moved around quite a bit during your, ahem, matriculation. Which means that you’re actually one step ahead of most people who are in the process of packing things up and moving.

But keeping things in self-storage is a little bit different than just packing everything into the back of your Jetta. It’s better to use boxes instead of duffel bags or garbage bags (like Angelina on the first season of Jersey Shore, can you believe her?) because bags will make stacking and packing your unit more difficult.

2 – Packing a Unit

As far as rules, double check with the facility if you have anything that might be considered hazardous or dangerous. In general, don’t store things like food, scented candles, fireworks, firearms, or leftover whip-its.

Speaking of packing a unit, it isn’t too tough but you’ll want to maximize the use of your space because you’re paying for every square inch. This means you’ll want to stack your boxes as high as you can (while still be able to access them safely). Put heavier boxes on the bottom and try to fill them up so that they don’t collapse under the weight of the boxes you stack on top. You can also fill empty nooks and crannies (like shelves on an empty bookcase or drawers that used to be full of clothes) with smaller boxes or items that you didn’t box up. This way you’ll be able to get as much stuff as possible into your unit. You’ll also want to keep some general packing & storage tips in mind like allowing air circulation (not sealing your things in airtight plastic) so as not to promote condensation and mold. If you’re storing a mini-fridge make sure it’s clean & empty and leave the door slightly ajar so as to keep it dry.

3 – Truck

Since you’re in college you might not have 24 hour access to a car which can make moving a bit more challenging. However, many self storage facilities offer trucks – either for a fee or for rental. In some cases, facilities will even offer a driver with their truck which means you won’t have to worry about maneuvering a large vehicle through campus or city streets. (This particular StoreRight location does not have trucks or rental trucks, but our location across from Hobby Lobby is offering U-Haul truck rentals).

4 – Choose a Size

You’re going to need a 5×5 or a 5×10, plain and simple. Unless you’ve somehow managed to pack and entire house full of big things like bookcases, bedframes and sleeper sofas, you won’t need anything bigger than either of these. 5 by 5 is the perfect size if you’re moving out a dorm room. Maybe you’ve go a floor lamp and a microwave, but the bed and desk belong to the school. You don’t want to take home your heavy winter coat and Uggs for the summer, so you can pack those things up too. But ultimately you don’t have a lot of stuff.

A 5×10 is a great size if you had your own room and you’ve got a bed to store for the summer or any other kind of small piece of furniture.

5 – Get the Best Deal

If you’ve never rented self storage before, prices and specials can seem kind of confusing. Luckily, most self storage facilities and especially the ones located near major campuses offer college student specials just for summer storage. This usually means for one low price, you can pay for the 2 or 3 months that you need storage and not have to worry about recurring payments or falling behind while you’re out of town.
