Before placing items in storage, families should go through a checklist. One of the first things that must be done is to determine how much space is needed. Staff members at Lexington Mini Storage can provide important advice on selecting a unit size. A surprisingly large number of belongings can fit into a seemingly small storage space if items are efficiently placed.
For some of our customers, climate controlled storage is the way to go if they would like their items at a more consistent temperature.
Clean Items First
Make sure to wash and dry hands before handling any valuables or precious items. For electronics like computers, a box, bubble wrap and packing peanuts can provide an extra layer of protection. We also sell these moving supplies at our locations.
Records should be kept in a file cabinet or box. A document detailing which records are retained should be kept so these records are easy to locate in the future.[caption id="attachment_666" align="alignnone" width="300"] Lexington Mini Storage employee[/caption]
