Things You Can’t Leave in A Storage Unit

A storage unit is a great way to save space, transition into a new home, or find a place to keep seasonal items when they’re not being used. A storage unit can fit a number of your belongings, including large items such as vehicles or delicate objects such as antiques or electronics. There are some items, however, that are not suitable for storage. These items may cause damage or disruption to the storage unit or to your other possessions. Here are some of the things that are prohibited from being stored in a public storage facility.

Regardless of the length of storage, it is prohibited to leave animals in storage units. Not only is this inhumane to the animal, it also is a safety and hygiene issue for the storage facility.
