Storage & Packing Tips
Before storing at South Rock Self-Storage, we recommend having a plan to ensure your valued possessions remain in great condition over time. Estimate how much space you will require, and save money by renting only the space you will need.
If you have any additional questions, or need help before storing, our friendly storage unit managers can help you through every step of the process.
Make packing easier by planning ahead
Before beginning the process of packing up your items for storage, have a few things on hand. We recommend gathering plenty of sturdy corrugated boxes, packing paper or old newspapers, bubble wrap for the most valuable items, sealing or shipping tape, and permanent markers to categorize the boxes.
Wrap and protect furniture
We recommend wrapping furniture legs with protective bubble wrap, and placing furniture covers or pads on their surfaces to protect from scratching. If disassembling bed frames, mark the rail pieces or wrap them together for easy assembly later. Finally, place covers or plastic bags on mattresses to protect them keep them like new during storage.
Label boxes on all sides
It never hurts to keep track of what you place in each box with a packing list of the contents (as well as pictures and descriptions). We recommend typing this, so that you can print off multiple copies, keeping one in your home and one in the unit you store your items.
Once everything is placed within the boxes you intend to store, mark the boxes on each side, on the top, and mark if the box is fragile (or heavy). These markings will make it easier for you when you need to find an item later.
Use the same size boxes (when possible)
An often overlooked (but important step) is to use the same size boxes when possible. After filling your boxes tightly (making sure not over-pack or under-pack), having the same size boxes will make it very easy to place items within your storage unit without needing to worry about where to place them.
Clean and dry appliances
Before bringing your appliances to your storage unit, be sure to clean and dry your appliances. When transporting your appliances, secure all movable parts, doors, and sections to prevent items from (unintentionally) opening on you while moving them.
If any of the appliances used water (freezers, refrigerators, washers, dishwashers), make sure they have time to thoroughly dry before storage (to prevent the possibility of any mold forming).
Store items with a plan
When you are packing your storage unit, place the items you will access most often at the front of the unit (so place them in the unit last). Next, leave yourself an aisle to give yourself convenient access to all items. Finally, be sure to label boxes that are heavy or fragile, and do not place items in a way that's precarious and might fall on you later.
Do not store prohibited items
State law determines what can and cannot be stored in your unit. We prohibit the storage of firearms, illicit drugs, drug paraphernalia, live animals, perishables, food, liquids, explosives, flammable liquids, and toxic materials.
Your life, safely stored.

You have questions, we have answers.
When can I move in?
If there is a storage space available that meets your specific storage needs you can move in anytime.
How much notice needs to be given before I move out?
All contracts are month-to-month. However, we do require a 10 day notice before you move out.
What type of documentation do I need to provide in order to rent a space?
We require a government issued photo ID (example: driver’s license, state ID, or passport)
How do I make a payment?
VISA, MasterCard and Discover (credit / debit) are the preferred method of payment. We also accept checks or money orders.
Are there any items that I am not able to store?
Liquids, explosives, flammable liquids, toxic materials and perishables. Please contact us if you have any questions regarding a specific item.
Does there have to be someone to let me through the security gates?
No. At the time of signing you will be given your own security pass code that will allow you convenient access to your unit.
What forms of payment do you accept?
For your convenience, we suggest signing up for automatic payments – using your valid credit card (VISA, Mastercard, or Discover) or debit card. There is no additional charge for this convenience and it avoids late fees. We also have a drop box for after hour payments.

No, we rent on a month-to-month basis unless the customer requests otherwise.

No. As part of the Move In process, a INSET lock is included with the small admin fee. This type of lock is nearly impossible to breach – and only you will have a key for it. In addition, you may double lock the door, if you prefer.
