Prohibited Storage Goods – DON’T PACK!
1. Perishable Food – It can rot, smell terrible and grow mold. It can also attract rats and other rodents.
2. Pets and other Live Animals – This should go without saying, but you cannot have live animals in your storage unit.
3. Live Plants – Potted plants need sunlight, fresh air, water and new soil. Obviously, they will find none of that in a storage unit.
4. Hazardous Materials – Prohibited items include paints, paint thinners, pesticides, weed killers, fireworks, charcoal, liquor, and ammunition, among many others.
5. Stolen and Illegal Goods – Obviously, if the manager suspects you have stolen or illegal goods in your unit, they will have to call the police.
6. Valuable Items – This is just a recommendation. In general, it is better to keep your valuables at home.
