Most people include books and papers in the stuff they store in self storage. But if they don’t store them properly, they might find that the paper has become soft in a bad way. Once soft, it is almost impossible to make right again. This is almost preventable if you store your books and papers with a few guidelines in mind for your storage solutions.
First, gather up the items that you want to store, and assess their value. This will help you buy the right amount of insurance. And if something is irreplaceable and dear to your heart, why are you storing it? Could you find room for it somewhere, so you can admire it every day?
You might think that the size of your storage unit should be the same size as the stuff you’re putting into it, but there’s more to this question. First, don’t forget that you will sometimes want to fit yourself into the storage unit to find an item or to work on something.
While storing your goods because you want more space or to de-clutter can be a great idea, there are some items that you should never bring to our mini storage units.
- Dangerous goods, or hazardous materials, are solids, liquids, or gases that can harm people, other living organisms, property, or the environment. (Thanks, Wikipedia!) They are subject to chemical regulations and should never be left with a storage company.
- Our storage units are not designed to keep animals, either alive or stuffed. We don’t allow you to plug in or use any equipment that would maintain an atmosphere in a storage unit that would keep an animal in good shape. Same with plants.
- For obvious reasons, we don’t allow customers to store any stolen items with our storage company. That could be seen as assisting a criminal act, and we never want to be a part of that.
We received a letter recently from one of our customers – Beth Wheatley of Vancouver. Here it is:
When my elderly father passed away, he left a house full of furniture and belongings for us to go through. It was a treasure trove of antiques. There was everything from chinaware to antique lamps to Christmas decorations from my childhood. Some of it we gave away to help other people, but much of it is stuff that I don’t want to part with. Yet.
