Miscellaneous Points to Remember
Lock Tite Storage in Flat Rock, MI lists out some miscellaneous parameters that are essential for a safe and damage-free storage of your cherished possessions.
Keep in Mind:
As you go, keep an inventory of every item you’ve packed. Ideally, include an estimate of the replacement value of each item you store. Consider taking pictures of valuable items. These steps will help you make accurate insurance claims in case of unforeseen damage or loss.
Don’t be afraid to bust out your Tetris skills. Even the smallest storage unit can hold a great deal, just make sure you use the space wisely which means packing things all the way to the ceiling. Bringing in plywood to lie across several boxes can help stabilize layers as your stacking it up, up and up! It will take the pressure off the tops of your boxes and help keep things safe.
Electronics, vinyl records, old photos (if humid), things of that nature all come out a little less awesome when not stored properly.
Keeping your items off the floor is almost essential. It might sound silly, but before renting your unit, there's no way to promise that the melting snow won't come under the door, or the adjacent unit won't have a spill that soaks its way into your heirloom sofa.
You should plan for temperature changes. Although this might not be an issue in some parts of the country, there are a few things that don't like the cold or the heat and should either be double wrapped or well insulated or not stored at all.
