What NOT to store in a self storage unit


Our storage units offer a lot benefits and can be an extremely flexible storage solution. However, there are some things that you just shouldn’t put inside a unit. We’ve given you a list of all the useful ways you can use them for, now we have compiled this helpful list of items that are not allowed -



Any living thing


You should never store any living plants in your self-storage unit as the likelihood is they will not survive for very long. It may seem obvious but the same rule applies to animals- NEVER keep a live animal in your unit (or a non-living one for that matter). It’s evidently not a good idea is obviously 100% forbidden.


Perishable food items


Most canned foods that are sealed can be stored, but perishable food products such as bread, cereals or meats are definitely not allowed. What happens if/when the food goes bad and starts to spoil and smell? These items are band and you should never store them in your self-storage unit.


Plugged-in appliances


So before you think you can avoid the above by running a refrigerator or freezer in your unit, you have to think again. You can store appliances in your self-storage unit but you cannot plug them in. This includes generators, freezers, and space heaters.


Explosives & toxic materials


It is forbidden to store items in a unit that could be potentially hazardous to other renters or the building itself. Naturally, storing heavy explosives, toxic waste, and ammunition is going to be a bad idea. However more commonly purchased items such as gasoline, motor oil, kerosene, corrosive materials, fertilizer, or fireworks are also a no-go.


These things may seem reasonably self-explanatory, but you would be surprised! Remember that whether you are a domestic or business customer, you can choose between various unit sizes with us that are all clean, dry and located within a contemporary custom-built building constructed solely for the purposes of storage. From one week to one year, we can cater a short or longer term contractual period to suit the necessary duration required for your circumstances.
