What Can I Store In A Self Storage Unit?


Storage units are great storage options. They help you to save space in either your house or office. A storage unit provides you with a space to store things whenever you are moving to a new place. It’s a perfect place to tuck in seasonal things like holiday decorations or valuable possessions like paintings or artifacts which may require a special climate-controlled environment. A storage unit also comes in handy during renovations when you need a space to hold everyday items until the renovation is done. 

Now, let’s take a look at what all you can store in the self-storage unit (and what you cannot). Let’s delve. 

First, let’s consider a few examples of things that are fit to be stored in a self-storage unit. They are as follows-

Storage units are great storage options for seasonal things

Things used regularly like clothes

Toys of children

Tomes (books)

CDs and DVDs

Crockery items

Vehicles like cars, motorcycles, motorboats




Commercial office or home supplies

PCs and laptops


Furniture and bedding




Pendulum clocks (especially those vintage ones which you don’t want to purge but preserve due to a special emotional bond with them)

Considerations to take into account when storing in a storage unit

Before moving any kind of vessel or equipment that has been in contact with gasoline or any other flammable fluid, make sure you clean that thing completely. This is crucial so that the vessel or the equipment is free from any residual stains of the flammable fluid. 

*When it comes to appliances, make sure you clean them thoroughly and leave them for drying. Don’t forget to dry out their insides as well before moving them into a storage unit. 

Pro tip –

If, at any point in time, you are not sure about whether a particular item can be stored in a storage unit or not, don’t be shilly-shally about consulting a professional. You will find one at your self-storage unit facility itself. He will give you proper guidance so that you make the most of storage units as great storage options without compromising on safety. 

Now, let’s look at the range of things that don’t qualify to go to a self-storage unit. You can find the list of ‘things that cannot be stored in a self-storage unit’ below:

Anything with the label- inflammable, flammable, incendiary, or combustible – basically anything that can easily set on fire

Perishable things especially food that is likely to rot or turn bad rapidly

Living animals or creatures of any kind

Dangerous substances that are of toxic nature 

Illegal items


Storage units make for great storage options. They’re perfect for moving and storing things like furniture, tomes, and usual household clutter (especially things which you are not going to need for a long time and are taking up too much space but will come in handy later). 

You can use a storage unit to easily de-clutter and make your garage, home, or office spacious.  

If you’re a student, you can also use a self-storage unit to store your furniture and other belongings when you are going to be away during university breaks and get them back when you return without having to buy them all again. This is way cheaper!
