These Items Should Not Be Stored In A Public Storage Space

Storage Space

We are continuing our series discussing some of the types of items that should not be stored in public storage facilities. Our previous article covered hazardous chemicals (i.e. paint thinner, chlorine, bleach, acid, fertilizer, turpentine, etc.), flammable materials (i.e. fireworks, acetone, propane, gasoline, kerosene, etc.) and guns, weapons and ammunition.  Today, we will look at more categories of items you should not place in your climate controlled storage space.

Anything Living

It’s obvious that any person living in a climate controlled storage space is prohibited. Keeping live animals, even those in aquariums, is also not allowed. Storing plants and flowers is also not permitted because they can bring in pests, fungus, and other problems that can spread to nearby units.

Tires

Tires, both used and new, should not be stored in a public climate controlled storage space. They are flammable and present a fire hazard.  Also, if the person that rented the unit abandons the storage space, the storage facility would be faced with significant disposal fees.

Cash

It is not advisable to store large amounts of cash in your indoor storage space. A safety deposit box actually provides more protection for cash. While a climate controlled storage space is safe, there is always a chance that something unforeseen could happen such as a fire or flood that could compromise or destroy the cash you have stored.

What Not To Keep In Your Indoor Storage Space

Indoor Storage Space

While a climate controlled storage space offers many advantages, there are some items that should not be stored in a public indoor storage space. Our next series of articles will cover different categories of items that you should not store in public storage facilities.

Hazardous Chemicals

If you are planning to rent storage, don’t move any hazardous chemicals into your climate controlled storage space.  This is unsafe not only for you, but for other customers who rent storage.  Examples of hazardous chemicals that should not be stored in your climate controlled storage space include paint thinner, chlorine, bleach, acid, fertilizer, and turpentine.

Flammable Materials

Flammable materials stored in an indoor storage facility present a serious fire hazard.  If a flammable material ignites, you can expect the fire to spread to other parts of the storage space.  Examples of flammable materials that should not be stored in public storage facilities include fireworks, acetone, propane, gasoline, and kerosene.

Guns, Weapons, Ammunition

It is definitely not wise to store any type of firearm, ammunition, or weapon such as a hand grenade in a public storage space. For one, there is always a chance that something could accidently go off and someone could get hurt.  Additionally, even though your climate controlled storage space is secure, there are still liability issues that could arise from storing such items in public storage facilities.

New To Climate Controlled Storage? Consider These Helpful Tips

New To Climate Controlled Storage? Consider These Helpful Tips

Placing your belongings in climate controlled storage involves much more than loading a truck and dollying boxes into a storage space. If you want to do it right and have the option to easily locate and/or move items at a later date, there are some steps you should take to help make your experience more productive.

Determine What Size Unit You Need

Before you rent storage, it is advisable to take inventory of everything you plan to place in climate controlled storage so you can make an accurate estimate as to which size storage space you need.  Don’t make the mistake of relying on a “mental” inventory.  This often results in forgetting or missing something. Once you have an outline of your inventory, you can use a size estimator to determine the exact indoor storage space you need to rent.

Securely Pack Your Belongings

Be sure to pack your belongings as securely as possible. You should use bubble wrap or packing paper, sturdy boxes, and quality packing tape.  If you plan to move furniture into your storage space, you can protect it by shrink wrapping legs and placing a sheet or blanket over it.

Organize Your Storage Unit

It is a good idea to come up with a system to organize your storge space.  This will make it easier to access items you may need at a later date.  Place items you know you will not need towards the back of the unit.

Tips for Storing Your Jet Ski

Tips for Storing Your Jet Ski

Part of the coastal South Carolina lifestyle includes lots of fun in the sun!  We often see a good number of jet skis in our Hanahan and Summerville vehicle storage facilities. If you want to preserve the integrity of your jet ski while it is in vehicle storage, there are a few steps you should consider taking. 

Fill the Gas Tank and Use a Fuel Stabilizer

You should fill the gas tank before placing your jet ski in vehicle storage. This prevents moisture from developing inside your gas tank.  You should also consider using a fuel stabilizer if the watercraft is not going to be used in the near future and you expect it to remain parked for an extended period of time.

Disconnect or Remove Battery

If you do not use your jet ski on a regular basis, you can preserve the life of your battery by disconnecting or removing it.

Invest in a Quality Cover

When you put your jet ski in outdoor vehicle storage, it is a good idea to invest in a durable cover to keep it protected from continuous UV rays, dirt, debris, etc.
