Items Prohibited from Self Storage

Renting self storage units are an exceptional option for saving the overflow of numerous items or materials from your home or business. You can think of your storage unit as a second garage or business supply room.

When preparing what to place in your storage unit, whether for business or personal functions, think about what might be prohibited from being stored by a self storage facility. Common sense dictates the fact that certain items cannot placed in a self storage facility (not to mention several State and Federal Laws). This is for the protection of not simply you and your possessions, but the center staff and various other customers and their goods. At the time you sign your rental agreement, you will be acknowledging that you comprehend and accept the rules and limitations for what items are allowable.
As a basic rule, any item or material that is considered hazardous or alive will not be permitted.
In preparation for renting a storage unit, make out a preliminary inventory of the products you wish to store. Bring this with you to review with the storage office manager to make sure you'll be in complete compliance with the list of allowable items. If you are unsure of any of your items eligibility for self storage, just call the self storage center to clarify any concerns that you may have.  This will avoid any associated inconvenience prior to your arrival at the storage facility.

Items That Need to be Addressed Prior to Storage

Hazardous, Combustible, Toxic Materials, and Chemicals
If an item is inherently unsafe, then it is probably ineligible for being storage at a self storage facility. These types of things include gasoline (unless in a vehicle), propane tanks, compressed gas, kerosene, oil, grease, acids, corrosives, fertilizers, paint, cleaners, chemicals, illicit drugs and medications, or dangerous, toxic or biological waste. Asbestos products are not permitted. You also can not save fireworks, dynamites, weapons or ammo.
Cars, Trucks, ATVs, Motor Cycles, Personal Water Craft, and Boats
The storage of vehicles is very common at self storage facilities. However, only as long as they have current registration, insurance, and are in functional order. Depending on the State that you are located in, some will allow storage of vehicles that are not in working condition, as long as their registration is current.   If you are going to store a vehicle, make sure that you have it “cleaned and tuned up” before you put it in long storage - dirt, dust, and grime are the enemy and can deteriorate paint, wiring, and rubber.  Additionally, you may consider removing the tires from your vehicle and storing it on Jacks.   The reason is that tires can be subject to flat spots due to excess weight of the vehicle.   If you are not going to remove the tires, you need to fill them up the highest level of air pressure that they can handle.
Medical/Pharmaceutical Materials & Devices
If you are a sales rep, you might find a self-storage unit a hassle-free location to manage medical supplies and pharmaceutical samples. Storage units are a great solution for keeping your products organized and easily accessible without littering up your office or filling up the trunk of your car.  While a lot of materials are acceptable, radioactive devices, or anything that contains radioactive materials cannot be placed in a storage unit.
Construction Equipment
For many contractors, the rental of a storage unit is the perfect solution for storing their equipment (particularly large items).  Storage units offer the hassle-free ability to drive up and pick up your items to and from a job!  Not to mention, storage unit rental is usually on a month to month basis, which is great for short term jobs.
Perishable Food and Animal Products
Canned foods can be kept in storage units, however perishable foodstuff such as grains, produce or meats are not are prohibited. These things can potentially spoil and attract pests and insects.
Miscellaneous Prohibited Items
Any animals or plants-- alive or dead-are prohibited from being kept in self storage units.  Stolen items or illegal paraphernalia are also no-no’s.  Most self storage facilities also prohibit the use electrical outlets to utilize refrigerators, generators, space heaters, freezers or for the purpose of living in the storage unit.

If you have any question about the items you wish to place in storage, always take the conservative route and ask the local self storage manager for prior approval.  Remember, most self storage  facilities have security cameras, which catch folks trying store items that they should not, not to mention the fact that some facilities have their property search every other month by local law enforcement officials who use “police dogs” to sniff out unwanted items.  If you have additional questions, we are here to help, feel free to give San Clemente Self Storage a quick call at 949-366-1133 - we would like to help you with self storage needs!
