1. While self storage is a great place to store your families belongings, there are certain things that for safety reasons are not allowed into the Etobicoke self storage facility. The list usually includes gasoline and other flammable items, any live pets, any live person, and any illegal substances. Be sure and check with the manager of the location for a list of items that are not allowed to be stored in your self storage unit.
2. When placing your boxes into the self storage unit remember a few tips when moving everything in. Start with the heaviest items on the bottom of the pile. Whether it is furniture or boxes of books by placing the heaviest items on the bottom of stacks of boxes it will be safer for you and your possessions. Keep fragile boxed items for the top of the stack. You do not want a box to crush your grandma’s china set because you put the box on the bottom of a pile. Another great rule of thumb is that stacks of boxes should not be created to be any taller than shoulder level. This will keep the strain of lifting from possible causing damage to your back and neck muscles as well as lessen the possibility that a stack of boxes could tip over.
3. By making the most of your Etobicoke self storage facility space you can really maximize the livable space in your home. Move seasonal items such as decorations, outdoor patio furniture during winter months, and snow blowers during the summer can help to free up space both inside the home and outside as well. Be sure to place these seasonal items near the front of the self storage unit so that they will be easier to access when their seasonal time comes around.
