Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: Can you ship things to a storage unit?
A: This depends on the storage unit in question. Some policies allow the company that rented you your unit to accept deliveries without your presence, but others do not. If you're planning on shipping items to your unit, you should check with the facility first.
Q: What should you not put in a storage unit?
A: You should not put anything hazardous or combustible in a storage unit, such as fuels, chemicals, or explosives. If you store items like these, it's likely that you'll be in violation of the rental agreement you signed with the owner of the storage facility.
Q: Can you play drums in a storage unit?
A: Most storage rental agreements don't specially prohibit the playing of musical instruments, so playing drums is usually permissible. There are certain aspects of most storage units, such as lack of space, uncontrollable climate, and bad acoustics, that decrease the practicality of practicing in a storage unit.
