I have a lot of furniture and accessories which I want to store for my antique store. What size unit can I get to hold it all?

Self Storage & Moving Tips Helpful hints to make the packing and storing of your belongings a breeze!

  • Use furniture drawers to hold delicate items. Wrap them in bubble wrap or newspaper.
  • When packing toys or smaller objects, remember to fill boxes completely, stuffing open areas with plain newspaper to prevent collapsing when stacked.
  • Please do not store anything combustible (such as paint and chemicals) or perishable (such as food that is not permanently sealed). These items cannot be stored on the premises.
  • When storing lawn and garden equipment, drain any fluids prior to storage in order to avoid corrosive damage.
  • Use trash cans to store shovels, hoes and rakes.
  • Always use high quality locks on your unit. Evergreen Self Storage sells locks on-site; ask the Store Manager for details.
  • Store furniture carefully on boards or pallets.
  • Cover mattresses and store them flat on level surfaces.
  • Store small items like pots and pans in large appliances, such as stoves or refrigerators.
  • Break down items (such as table legs) and store large furniture (like tabletops and sofas) on end to save space.
  • Use protective covers and treat wood surfaces before storing.
  • When storing business files, label all boxes and construct aisles so files are easily seen and accessible
