STORAGE TIPS – From Providence Self Storage
- Check grocery/liquor stores for free boxes. Uniform size boxes stack easier for both moving and storage. Be sure boxes are strong enough to hold 25-30 lbs.
- Place those items that you need to get to often, in the front.
- Label all containers and boxes
- Pack heavier items in small boxes.
- Fill drawers and appliances with small items to conserve space.
- Don’t store food — this will attract mice and other pests.
- Leave a walkway so that you can access your items as needed.
- Disassemble items such as tables, bed frames, etc. (This will save space.)
- Make sure that all appliances are clean and dry before storing them.
- Clothing and draperies should be stored in wardrobe boxes, on hangers, to retain their original shapes.
Plastic containers are great to store your items. They have tight fitting lids and stack easily. Keep the more valuable items in the rear of the unit. This will prevent others from seeing them when you are in your unit.
ABOUT PROVIDENCE SELF STORAGE
Providence Self Storage is a family owned and operated self-storage and truck rental business. Our facility was built on a tract of property that was family held since 1934, and we are the third generation owners.
We offer a safe, clean, and well maintained facility which is fully fenced, gated and under twenty-four-hour video surveillance. Our facility provides standard drive-up units from 5×5 to 15×40 as well as temperature controlled units from 5×5 to 10×20, all located on one floor for easy access. We are also an agent for Penske, the industry leader in rental trucks.
When you contact Providence Self Storage, you are dealing with one of the facility owners, not an employee which you are likely to find in one of the big box storage companies.
We provide a solution for your personal and business storage situations, as well as rental truck needs and moving and packing supplies.
Our facility is conveniently located minutes from the Oaks Exit of Route 422 in Upper Providence Township, serving Phoenixville, Oaks, Mont Clare, Collegeville and surrounding areas of Montgomery and Chester counties, in SE Pennsylvania.
