Items Prohibited in Storage
Let’s Discuss Prohibited items that should not be kept in storage.
Food storage is absolutely prohibited in a self storage. Nothing will attract bugs, ants, vermin, mice and snakes like food. Neither the Storage Facility management or your neighbors will be happy with you.
Living animals are not permitted to be put in a storage unit period.
If you are considering putting your pet in a storage unit forget about it, it is prohibited.
Other Items that are prohibited to be put in a storage unit are as follows:
Do not place live plants in a storage unit. All living plants need light, food, and water. Your plants will die much faster in a storage unit opposed to your home or office.
Gardeners are allowed to keep most of all their supplies and equipment inside a storage unit, although they must keep anything that’s alive stored elsewhere.
Do not put Firearms, munitions, gunpowder, or explosives into a storage.
Your firearm collection cannot be kept in a self storage unit. Additionally, do not put fireworks or any other explosives into a storage building. If you ignore this warning and your storage unit blows up, you very well could end up celebrating your next holiday in a federal facility.
Hazardous materials and waste storage are prohibited to be in a storage unit.
You’ll need to find somewhere else to keep your excess flammables, explosives or radioactive items. If it’s corrosive, chemical, odorous, noxious or toxic, it can’t go into self storage. This will also include lead paint, asbestos, urea formaldehyde, polychlorinated biphenyl, petroleum, and petroleum products. Of course do not forget to include constituents, methane, medical waste, toxic substances and related materials as defined in several federal acts and state statutes.
Stolen goods are expressly prohibited and forbidden in storage units.
Greenbacks, money and cash should not be kept in a storage unit either. Please keep in mind that insurance policies do not cover cash or monies. Your money will be safer in a safety deposit box.
