What not to Place in Storage

  • When you decide to rent a storage unit you will want to make sure you know all the ins and outs of what you can and cannot place in your unit. Having a storage unit at 1st Choice Storage in Gulfport can free up a lot of needed storage space in your home as long as you make sure to avoid placing any of the following items in your unit.
  •  
  • Cash should be placed in a bank account or safely in your home. Having cash placed in your storage unit causes too much risk of a break in or a loss in money if the cash were to be destroyed by acts of nature.
  •  
  • Plants will not survive in a storage unit. They need fresh air and sunlight in order to thrive and grow. Additionally they could attract unwanted guests, such as bugs and rodents, which can cause damage to the other items you are storing in your unit.
  •  
  • Living or kenneling in a storage unit is not allowed or recommended. While a storage unit may be cheaper than room and board for you or your pets, it is not suitable for living in. It can be hazardous to the health and the well-being of your pets.  If you do place your animal in a storage unit you may be charged with animal cruelty.
  •  
  • Firearms, munitions, gunpowder and explosives are also not allowed. The probability of something going wrong with any of these items is too high for them to be placed in storage. If an accident does occur it can cause harm to your items as well as others who have units in the facility.
  •  
  • Most foods are also prohibited in storage units. When food is placed in a storage unit it can attract unwanted guests and have the potential to rot. It can cause extensive damage to the items in your storage unit as well as the units next to yours. One exception to this rule is canned goods.
  •  
  • Hazardous material and waste storage should not be placed in your storage unit. If it’s corrosive, chemical, odorous, noxious or toxic, it can’t go in storage either. This includes lead paint, asbestos, urea formaldehyde, polychlorinated biphenyl, petroleum, petroleum products and constituents, methane, medical waste, toxic substances and related materials as defined in several federal acts and state statutes.
