Common Self-Storage Mistakes

  1. 1. Dry

Everything you pack must be dry as a bone. Use towels and cloths to wipe down items before putting them in. this reduces bacteria growth as there is no damp for it bacteria to fester.


  1. 2. Put the newspaper down

Don’t think that wrapping your porcelain and china plates in newspaper will suffice. It really wont. Be smart about how you work. the ink from the newspapeNews paper and bubble wrapr can strafe onto your expensive items and wont protect them from breakage at all. Use bubble wrap instead for an ink free and safer way to wrap your items.

Make sure your storage unit ill well-made and will protect your goods from rain and sun. At Ezeey storage our containers are weather proof so you don’t need to worry about getting that wrong!
