3 Self Storage Tips for Hurricane Season

1. Cover Large Items with Plastic Tarps

You can deter water damage by throwing plastic tarps over items that are too large to place in bins. If the weight of the object allows, you can also keep items raised on pallet boards to keep them out of potential water.

2. Secure Dangerous Objects

You don’t want anything else on your property when strong winds and major flooding arrive. Before the storm arrives, make sure anything that might become a dangerous projectile is secured. Freedom Storage can store all of your equipment and furnishings as well as outside items.

3. Water-Proof

If you want to keep your things dry, here are a few tips. You can start by fitting what you can into plastic bins. If you have items that are extra sensitive to moisture, like documents and pictures, look for storage containers that will seal out water completely. Another option is putting small objects into zip-close plastic bags before adding them to the bin.
