TIPS FOR SAFE AND SECURE STORING

For Best Results:

Estimate replacement value of items prior to storing, and consider purchasing storage insurance. MINI-WEST STORAGE offers storage insurance through SAFESTOR.

Storage Box Icon
Use sturdy boxes and seal them with tape. U-HAUL boxes and tapes are sold in our office store.

Choose the right size for the contents. Pack heavy items such as dishes and glassware in smaller boxes. Place bulky, light items such as comforters and pillows, in large boxes. Our office store carries a wide range of standard and specialty boxes in many sizes.

Pack books flat to prevent damage to the spines. We carry book boxes at MINI-WEST.

Place photographs between cardboard taped together to prevent curling over time.

Clean and dry appliances before placing in storage. Store items inside appliances, and leave doors slightly ajar for air circulation to avoid mildew.

Store mattresses on the long end, preferably with a mattress cover or plastic sheeting. MINI-WEST’s office store carries both mattress and sofa covers.
