Do’s and don’ts for storing items at Prospect Storage

Our list of common sense restrictions are for the safety of our clients and emergency responders if there is an emergency:

Ammunition is not permitted to be stored  in the storage units! Firearms may be stored in the units; however, you must remove the bolt/firing pin, secure the weapon with a trigger lock or other similar security features.  Be sure the clips and barrels are empty of ammunition.

Inflammable or Combustible Materials
The list of restrictions includes gas, diesel, kerosene, camping fuel, aerosols or pressurized inflammable materials and fireworks etc.  Please empty all fuel tanks, even your lawnmower or other small machinery, before placing these items in self storage. Solvents and thinners must have a sealed air tight lid. There is NO SMOKING in the units and climate controlled hallways and buildings!

Hazardous Materials
The storage of hazardous, toxic or chemical materials on site is prohibited, as these items can cause serious damage if they spill or if there is a fire. Refrain from storing anything that will cause a significant odor on site.

Do not store food that is packaged in cardboard, paper, & plastic bags in a storage unit as they will attract insects and pests. Items can be stored in sealed containers like “Tupperware”.

Illegal or stolen goods
No reputable self storage provider will allow you to store illegal or stolen goods on their premises; the same holds true for Prospect Storage.

If you have any doubt as to whether or not the item you wish to store is permitted by Prospect Storage, please do not hesitate to contact the property manager.
