Plan your storage space in advance. Place those items that you need to get to often in the front and allow for walkways for easy access.
Try to keep your boxes in uniform sizes. They are much easier to stack that way.
Label ALL boxes for easy identification.
Leave a small space between the wall and your storage items to allow for ventilation.
Pack your boxes and other items as close together as possible to avoid moisture accumulating between them.
Make up an inventory of your stored items and keep it in a safe place at home or in a safe deposit box.
List contents of boxes on all four sides, number the boxes, seal with masking tape or glued paper tape.
Stack lighter boxes on top of heavier boxes.
Place your storage items on pallets supplied by Stow-it-all to guard against dampness. Any concrete floor may become cold and damp.
It is against the law to store materials that are HAZARDOUS or COMBUSTIBLE such as gasoline, solvents, paint, etc… Drain out all remaining gasoline from lawnmowers, power tools, boats, snowmobiles, etc.
Furniture with drawers can be utilized as storage places for knickknacks, china, silverware and small items. Wrap in tablecloths, towels or blankets to prevent breakage.
Larger appliances make excellent “packing cases” for blankets, towels, tablecloths and clothes.
