The following list of hazardous items are NOT to be stored at any self storage facility. This is for your protection and ours.
You may feel that your storage room is for all of your personal items, but unfortunately due to safety and insurance purposes there are many things which are not allowed.
As a general rule, if you shouldn’t have it then then we probably can’t either. Plus some other things you may not be aware of.
PEOPLE; We once had a customer ask us if we could store her dead husband. We really do like to help but this is a stretch too far.
