6 Items Commonly Kept in Storage Units, Stevens Creek, Nebraska

Whether you're moving or you just need some additional space for your personal belongings, you can benefit from renting a storage unit. Self-storage units are ideal for keeping items safe and secure when they can't be in your possession. At East “O” Street Self Storage in Lincoln, NE, you'll find spacious, practical, heat-optional units to hold your possessions.

Some items are better stored than others, though. While it may be tempting to clear up space at home and store as much as possible in your personal storage unit, it's a good idea to be discerning about what you put away.

While you may wish to hang on to extremely valuable items, such as jewelry, family heirlooms, and paintings, you can part with some of these more commonly stored items and be assured of their safekeeping:

  • Lincoln, NE storage unitFurniture: A storage unit is the ideal space for small- or large-scale furniture that doesn't fit comfortably in your home or match your current décor.

  • Electronics: Unused electronics, such as computers, laptops, and stereo systems store perfectly in storage units. If you have a tendency to hang on to older electronics, such as classic televisions or VCRs, your self-storage space is the perfect place to keep them.

  • Clothing: If you're storing clothing and accessories, fold them neatly into storage boxes and label each box with the owner's name. This is especially helpful if you're storing clothes for the entire family! Be sure to add moth balls to deter pests.

  • Appliances: Just as you might store furniture, you can easily keep small or large appliances in your storage unit. Whether it's a blender or a refrigerator, it can be kept in your indoor storage unit without issue.

  • Toys: Old toys may not have a use at all in the future, but if you think you may need them again at some point or if they hold sentimental value, you can place them in storage. Fill boxes with toys, labeling each accordingly (stuffed animals, board games, etc.).

  • Vehicles: At East “O” Street Self Storage, the largest units easily hold everything from cars and tractor-trailers to RVs and furniture. If you're short on space in your driveway, your storage unit is the perfect place to keep your spare vehicles.

For all of your personal, business, and commercial storage needs, visit East “O” Street Self Storage in Lincoln. For more information, visit the website or call (402) 489-0134.
