What Not to Keep in a Self Storage Unit
Things-not-to-place-in-self-storage.jpg

Storage units are the best solution for your storage needs. When you don't have enough room around the house or personal business to store your items, you'll want to have a secure place to store your belongings. There are, however, certain things that must not be placed in a storage unit and as a guideline, we have listed many of them below for you.

Illegal or Stolen Items

Anything illegal or stolen must not be placed in a storage facility. As well, you must own what you are placing into storage and cannot place anything that is titled to somebody else without permission to do so.

Perishable Food

Perishable food can attract a number of different pests including insects and rodents. Additionally, as the food starts to rot the smell will become overpowering and affect the other items in storage.

Animals

We hope this one is obvious but animals should never be placed in a storage unit even for a small amount of time as it is both cruel and illegal. The unit is dark when not in use, confined and not suitable for any living creature. Plants as well should not be brought in since they can attract pests and are sure to die within a short amount of time.

Flammable Property and Explosive Items

Flammable liquids like oils and fuels or explosive items such as propane tanks, fireworks, firearms and ammunition should never be placed inside the unit. This can lead to a very dangerous situation that puts you, your belongings and other people at risk.

Hazardous Materials

Additionally, you must be cautious of storing products that contain warning labels on them. Not all household or garage items should be automatically assumed as safe to store in self storage. Anything with a corrosive, poisonous, reactive or environmental hazard label cannot be stored. Examples include:

  • Ammonia/bleach
  • Pesticides
  • Insecticides
  • Roofing Tar
  • Paint, paint thinner, paint removers
