Protecting Belongings in your Storage Unit

Published on 10/22/2021

You might be wondering how safe your items will be inside your storage unit. Our handy drive-up storage units in St. Paul are fully enclosed and will protect your hard-earned belongings from almost anything. With that said, the great value of a non-climate controlled unit can be enhanced even further with just a few extra steps. 

Water protection - for extra peace of mind, you can easily prop up your items (especially furniture, cardboard boxes, electronics, etc) on a simple pallet. You are also free to put up a small shelving unit in your storage for this purpose, and to maximize the space inside your storage locker. 

Moisture protection - disposable moisture remover tabs, desiccant packets, and silica gel products are a great, inexpensive tool for helping prevent excess moisture inside your storage space.  

Theft/fire/rodent damage protection - always use a disc-style lock, never store flammable or explosive materials, and consider signing up for our inexpensive Tenant Protection packages, starting at just $9/mth for up to $2,000.00 in protection. Some exclusions apply, see to learn more, and call 651-489-3344 to enroll today.
