Plan ahead

Keep your frequently used items at the front of your unit where you can get at them easily.

Map it

As you move into your storage space, make a simple drawing that shows where items are placed.

Cover up

Protect your furniture, including mattresses and box springs, with covers designed for the item.

Think vertical

Make the best use of your storage area by stacking to the ceiling, working from heaviest items on the bottom to lightest pieces on top.

Don’t over-reach

Use a stool to stack and reach items stored above your head.

Optimize your space

Break down any furniture that has removable legs, leaves or other parts. Stack chairs seat-to-seat with towels or blankets between them.

LOCKITUP owners reside on the property.


Use your refrigerator or other appliances to store things like linens – even books or CDs. Wedge the door of any appliances open so air can circulate inside them.

Take a breath

Leave a little space between the walls of your unit and your stored items to allow for ventilation.


Tool up

Shovels, hoes, rakes, and hoses can be stored together in an empty dustbin. Stack extra cans inside one another.

Be prepared

Keep an extra First Aid kit in your storage unit.
