Published on 12/22/2021

Snow will be coming soon!!!

Some Suggestions to keep your valuables dry with self storage:

1) Shovel snow in front of units left after plowing, snow left can create a dam where melting snow from roof hits and causes water to run backwards

2) Use pallets to elevate any items that cannot get wet, cardboard boxes are not good at keeping your items dry, in fact they can pull moisture from concrete and get your possessions wet.

3) If your door freezes shut call a manger, its easy to get open with a proper pry bar to get the ice away from the door.  Attempting to do this yourself may cause damamge to the door. 

4) salt along the bottom of the door can be handy in keeping the door from freezing down

Unless your units are climate controlled this is a common occurrence with any outdoor storage facility. Any operating outdoor facility saying this isn't a problem is lying, this happens everywhere there is snow.  Knowing the best way to handle it key, and keeping up on removing the snow from in front of your door will save you from having any issues.
