Beach supplies:

  • Make sure everything is completely dry before putting into your storage unit.
  • Give your belongings air to breathe and do not squish items together.
  • Use Damp Rid in units to make sure nothing gets moldy/musty. Make sure you are not accidentally placing anything in a storage unit wet.

Summer clothes:

  • Store your clothing in clear plastic containers so articles of clothing are easy to locate.
  • Do not use cardboard because it wears down quicker and is more easily damaged.
  • Before placing items in containers make sure they are folded loosely to prevent creases.
  • Satchels of dried lavender or dryer sheets can keep clothes smelling fresher.
  • It is important to be sure that all articles of clothing are dry and clean before storing.
  • Use wardrobe boxes to hang clothing to store for winter.
