A1 Storage is an excellent option for storing overflow of many different types of materials from your home or business. You can think of A1 Storage as a second garage or business supply room.
When planning what to store at A1 Atorage, whether for business or personal purposes, consider that we have restrictions on what they will allow you to store on our premises. This is for the protection of not just you and your belongings, but the facility staff and other customers and their goods. You will be required to sign a lease indicating that you understand and agree to adhere to the rules and restrictions for what items are allowable. As a general rule, any item or material that is considered “inherently dangerous” will not be allowed.
We frequently gets questions about what is acceptable to store. Here is a list of items and materials about which we are commonly asked:
Combustible, Flammable, Hazardous or Toxic Materials
Considered “inherently dangerous,” these include gasoline, compressed gas, propane tanks, kerosene, lamp and motor oil, acid, grease, corrosives, fertilizer, paint, cleaners, chemicals, narcotics, or hazardous, toxic or biological waste. Asbestos or products containing asbestos are not allowed. You also cannot store fireworks, explosives, weapons or ammunition.
Tires & Vehicles
Storing vehicles is generally acceptable, as long as they are registered, insured and in operational condition. We will not let you store more than four tires in your self-storage unit because of the cost to dispose of them.
Medical/Pharmaceutical Supplies & Equipment
If you are a sales representative, you may find a self-storage unit a convenient place to manage medical supplies and pharmaceutical samples. It is a useful way to keep your products organized and easily accessible without cluttering up your office or filling your car trunk. While most supplies are acceptable, radioactive equipment – or anything that contains radioactive materials – cannot legally be stored.
Perishable Food and Animal Products
Canned foods can be stored in storage units, but perishable food products such as cereals, produce or meats are not allowed. These may spoil or attract pests.
Miscellaneous Prohibited Items
Any animals or plants – alive or dead – cannot be stored. Nor can any stolen items. People are not allowed to plug in or use refrigerators, freezers, generators, space heaters or live in storage units.
If you have any question about the items you wish to store, ask us before before you pack and arrive at A1 Storage.
