Summer storage can be a lifesaver for students needing a secure place for their belongings while away. However, ensuring it's done right is crucial to avoid potential issues. Here are essential dos and don'ts to help you pack and store your items like a pro.

DO Properly Pack Your Items

Effective packing is paramount for safeguarding your belongings during summer storage. Utilize sturdy boxes and quality packing materials to prevent damage. Clearly label boxes and seal them tightly with packing tape. For delicate items, employ protective materials like bubble wrap.

DON'T Store Perishable Items

Avoid storing perishable items such as food or plants in your storage unit. These can attract pests and emit unpleasant odors. Dispose of or donate perishables before storing your other belongings.

DO Choose the Right Storage Unit

Select a storage unit that matches your needs in terms of item quantity. Fellow offers per-item pricing, ensuring you only pay for stored items, not the unit size. Reach out to learn more about our storage options tailored to you.
