Belongings best left out of storage

When consumers have settled on a storage unit, they'll often question what belongings or home furnishings should occupy the space. But just as important as what to include is what not to include.

The contents renters can and cannot include vary from company to company, but storage listing website StorageFront.com has published a list of items that virtually every facility prohibits.

This includes radioactive materials. These toxic substances are often found in medical supplies, which is why health services personnel and sales representatives should be especially aware of whether they contain them. However, as the source indicates, the vast majority of medical supplies have no radioactive material.

Foods are something else that shouldn't be housed in storage units, especially if they're perishable. Due to spoilage, these can draw bugs and rodents, potentially creating an infestation problem.

While storage units are often used to keep collectibles in pristine condition, weapons of any kind should not be placed in storage either. Even antique firearms can be dangerous, which is why virtually all facility owners prohibit them, the source notes.

If renters have any questions about whether certain belongings are permissible to store, they can call Jiffy Self-Storage directly or can visit Jiffy Self-Storage's website to submit a question.
