3 Self Storage Tips for Hurricane Season

1. Cover Large Items with Plastic Tarps

Plastic tarps can be used to cover large items that could not otherwise fit in garbage cans. If the weight of the object permits, keep things raised on pallet boards above potential water damage.

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

There are a few ways to keep your belongings dry. Try fitting things into plastic bins. If you have especially moisture-sensitive items like documents or photos, look for storage containers that will seal out water entirely. Another possibility is putting small objects into zip-close plastic bags before adding them to the bin.
