Storage Tips

After choosing the Seven Springs Self Storage unit that fits your needs, it is essential that you pack your belongings in the storage unit correctly. Our storage managers can help you in finding the right space at the right price. Storing at Seven Springs Self Storage is  convenient, safe, and inexpensive. For personal or commercial needs let us help you decide the right space for your storage needs. Here are some tips to consider for preventing damage:

For items needing to be accessed frequently place in front. And create walkways so you can get to things in the back.
Stack boxes or containers with others that are uniform in size and make sure all boxes are pack fully to prevent them from collapsing. Also place heavier boxes and containers on the bottom, lighter ones on top.
Please do not store chemicals, plants, food and liquids. Cleaning solutions can damage fine furnishings and electronics.  Storing food and liquids can attract insects and rodents.
For easy identification label ALL boxes.
Make sure you lock your unit each time you visit. Use a HIGH QUALITY lock, preferably a “disc lock”, for your unit.
Make up an inventory of your stored items and keep it in a safe place at home or in a safe deposit box.
Breakable items along with dishes and glasses need to be packed with our pouched dish protector set or wrapped in packing paper. Individually wrap each item and fill in all pockets with packing material. Check out our Storage Supplies and make Seven Springs your one-stop Self Storage solution.
Clothing, curtains, and drapes should be stored on hangers. If hanging cartons are not available, such items should be carefully folded and stored in dresser drawers or cedar chests along with bedding and linens. We have wardrobe style cardboard cartons which help protect your clothes. Food crumbs or stains should be removed before storage to avoid storing anything that may attract pests.
Pictures and mirrors should be wrapped in mirror crates marked “FRAGILE” and stacked on end. Furniture with drawers can be utilized as storage places for knickknacks, china, silverware and small items. Wrap in tablecloths, towels or blankets to prevent breakage.
Refrigerators/Freezers and Small Tools
A refrigerator or freezer should be thoroughly dry and stored with its door slightly ajar. Larger appliances make excellent “packing cases” for blankets, towels, tablecloths and clothes. Make sure that stoves and cooking equipment are cleaned before they are stored. Shovels, hoes, rakes and hoses can be stored together in empty trash cans. Stack extra cans inside one another.
Wipe all metal surfaces with a rag containing a few drops of machine oil to retard rust.
Remove the legs from tables to save space.
Sofas and loveseats can be stored on end to save floor space. Always place a protective waterproof cover under the end on the floor. Cushions should be wrapped in plastic and placed on top.
Stuffed Furniture
Cover stuffed furniture with Dust Cover.


Place you mattresses in a Mattresses Bag to keep it from damage and moisture.
