Be sure to read your rental agreement carefully to understand the terms and conditions of your rental.

What should I do before storing my items? 

Before storing your items, be sure to clean them thoroughly and wrap them in protective materials if needed. You may also want to take an inventory of your items and label boxes for easy identification. If you are storing electronics or appliances, be sure to follow any manufacturer’s instructions for storage.
