What to Store and Not Store

Self-storage units are a great way to keep items that you do not immediately need. Many people use self-storage units to keep inventory for their small businesses or when they are moving houses. While storage units can be great assets for a number of purposes, not every type of item belongs in a storage unit.

The most common hazardous or inappropriate items that people place in their self-storage units include:

• Combustible or toxic materials (i.e. gasoline, propane tanks, paint, etc.)
• More than four tires
• Certain types of construction equipment
• Perishable food or animal products

Many other products can be stored for long periods of time in a self-storage unit with no problem. Non-radioactive medicines and pharmaceutical supplies are also storable with proper climate control units.
