What You Should Not Store In Your Storage Unit
Apart from not keeping these items in your storage unit, you should also inform your Wayne, Pennsylvania long distance movers if you’ll be moving with any of these items.
Flammable or Combustible Items/Materials – This is at the top of this list for a reason. Items that are either flammable or combustible are dangerous and pose such a risk that most storage facilities will prohibit them. Not only are they risky for your own unit, but they carry a risk for all units at the facility. Our Wayne, PA long distance movers warn that even if these items are contained, it may be possible for too much heat or cold to cause the item to combust.
Unregistered Vehicles – Many people choose to store unused vehicles at a storage facility; in fact, this is one of the most common items! Depending on the state, there may be specific laws for storing a vehicle. If you plan to store a vehicle you will want to review the regulations, or ask our Wayne, PA long distance movers at Suburban Solutions for guidance. Some states require all stored vehicles to have a valid, and up to date registration. If you do not have this, and the state requires this, your vehicle would be classified as abandoned. In this case, it could be impounded.
Soaps and Scented Candles – Although storing candles and other scented items might not seem like a big deal, they could pose a threat to your unit, and the facility. This is not to say you cannot store strongly scented items, but rather, you should consider whether its really worth it. Scented items could attract small rodents, and this is the last thing you want in your unit. Although our Wayne, PA long distance movers can attest that our units are very secure and do not provide access, such as small cracks between the floor and door, to mice; however, we cannot say this is true for every facility. We would advise anyone to carefully wrap and tightly secure all scented items.
Medical Equipment – Some people have tried to store as much medical supplies as possible into a unit. Wayne, PA long distance movers advise anyone doing this to proceed with caution as some of these items contain radioactive materials that cannot actually be legally stored in a facility. Furthermore, medical supplies do have an expiration date, and you don’t want them to sit there too long!
Firearms, Ammunition, and Fireworks – Most storage facilities do not allow these items. Some states will even prohibit it. If you are seeking to store firearms, ammunition, or fireworks, we would encourage you to speak directly with the storage facility and review your state regulations about doing so.
