Did you know?
Maryland law forbids the storage of any flammable or combustible products. Things like paint, paint thinner, gasoline, solvents or explosives are not permitted in our units.
Here are some tips for preparing your items for storage at River Landing Mini Storage:

• Make up an inventory of your stored items and keep it in a safe place at home or in a safe deposit box.

• Plan your storage space - place the items you will need to access most frequently in the front. Do not stack boxes too high and never stack heavy boxes on lighter ones.

• Allow for walkways in your storage space.

• Label boxes for easy identification and so you can find them faster.
• Tables and other furniture pieces with removable legs can be broken down to maximize space.

• Dishes, glasses and other breakable items should be wrapped in paper or bubble wrap and packed in sturdy boxes.

• Stored furniture with drawers can be utilized as storage places for pictures, china, silverware, clothes, etc.  Suitcases also make great storage containers.

• Larger appliances such as washers and dryers can be uilized as storage places for blankets, towels, clothes, etc.

• Cover upholsterd furniture with sheets or blankets to protect from dust.

• Sofas and loveseats can be stored on end to maximize space. Use the loose sofa cushions wrapped in plastic bags to fill in the space between furniture pieces.

• Wood furniture should be waxed prior to storage and covered with a blanket or cloth rather than plastic. 

• Disassemble bed frames and tie them together. Put loose screws and hardware in sandwich bags and tape them to the frame.

• Store mattresses in mattress storage bags and stand them up to maximize space.

• Anything which might rust should be wiped with a little oil prior to storing. Oiled items should be packaged so the oil does not come in contact with other stored items.

• Hoses should be drained, coiled and tied securely.

• Drain fuel and oil from machinery.

• Pack books in small boxes because of their weight.

• Important papers should be packed in sealed plastic bags.

• Tape electrical cords to the back of machines to prevent plug damage.
