Q: Do I need insurance for the things I store with you?

A: You are responsible for your belongings stored at Keep It Here Storage. While insurance is not mandatory it is highly recommended. You may even be covered under a policy you already have. We believe that if your items are worth storing they are worth insuring. For you convenience, storage insurance is available through one of our local insurance agents.

Q: Do I have to sign a long-term storage contact?

A: At Keep It Here Storage, you do not need to sign a long-term contract as all storage can be done on a month-to-month basis.

Q: Do you offer residential and commercial storage?

A: Yes. Our facility has units with sizes that can accommodate both.

Q: Can anybody drive onto this property or do you need a PIN number?

A: Our facility has an electronic gate system which can only be opened by a security code that is assigned to each individual tenant. The code allows us to monitor who is entering and exiting the facility.

Q: What’s a roll-up door?

A: Roll-up doors are like garage doors – they roll up overhead for easy access. They’re usually wider than swing doors, so it’s easy to move things in and out.

Q: What’s a drive-up unit?

A: A drive-up unit has a roll-up door and its own loading area. Just drive up to it and load your belongings in or out.

Q: Do need to give you notice when I move out?

Self Storage and Packing Tips

Storage Tips

  • Leave a walkway to the rear of the unit.
  • Disassemble bed frames to save space.
  • Place frequently used items close to the door.
  • Fill your boxes, but don’t over fill —partially full or bulging boxes may tip or collapse.
  • Store couches (except sofa beds) on end to save space.
  • Place fragile items near the top of the unit to prevent breakage.
  • Label your cartons and keep a list of the labeled cartons. (Get labels in our office.)
  • Consider shelving to make maximum use of your space.
  • Adding bay leaves to boxes will discourage many pests and pets.
  • Clean refrigerators and freezers before storing
  • Leave refrigerator and freezer doors slightly ajar.
  • Use refrigerator and freezer space for storage.
  • Wrap mirrors and pictures with paper pads or use mirror boxes. Never store flat.

Packing Tips

  • Use high quality moving and storage boxes.
  • Use furniture drawers to hold delicate items. Wrap them in bubble wrap or newspaper.
  • When packing toys or smaller objects, remember to fill boxes completely, stuffing open areas with plain newspaper to prevent collapsing when stacked.
  • Be careful not to store anything combustible (such as paint and chemicals) or perishable (such as food that is not permanently sealed).
  • When storing lawn and garden equipment, drain any fluids prior to storage in order to avoid corrosive damage.
  • Use trash cans to store shovels, hoes and rakes.
  • Always use high quality locks on your unit. Ask our on-site manager for advice on where to purchase these high quality locks.
  • When storing delicate heirlooms, use specially constructed boxes, such as wardrobe boxes, and utilize dehumidifiers to prevent mildew build up.
  • Store furniture carefully on boards or pallets.
  • Cover mattresses and store them flat on level surfaces.
  • Store small items like pots and pans in large appliances, such as stoves or refrigerators.
  • Break down items (such as table legs) and store large furniture (like tabletops and sofas) on end to save space.
  • Use protective covers and treat wood surfaces before storing.
  • When storing business files, label all boxes and construct aisles so files are easily seen and accessible.
  • Clean furniture, boxes and the storage unit of all food and perishables.
