It is unsafe to store toxic, flammable, or combustible items in a storage facility as they can explode or cause a fire. The items can cause extensive damage to your belongings and adjacent units. Such items include solvents, paint thinner, paint, gasoline or petrol, and batteries. If you are storing a BBQ gas bottle or a lawnmower, it should be without fuel.

If you want to leave your car at a storage unit, it must be insured, fully registered and in operable condition. You will need to provide a valid driver’s license and evidence of vehicle registration when renting a storage unit.
