Packing Tips:

  • Do not use printed newspaper for packing as the ink may smudge on your items.
  • Tightly seal boxes with packing tape.
  • Label boxes for easy identification.
  • Fill boxes completely to prevent collapsing when stacked.
  • Pack books flat and in small boxes so the box is not too heavy.
  • Use lots of packing material to pack dishes and glassware.

Storing Tips:

  1. Place plastic on the floor to provide a barrier between your items and the concrete. 
  2. Place frequently used items near the door.
  3. Create an aisle if you need access to all items.
  4. Do not store food, pet food or anything combustible.
  5. Use plastic covers to protect against dust (mattresses, sofas, chairs).
  6. Appliances should be clean and dry with the door ajar.
  7. Stack boxes to take advantage of the unit height.
  8. Stack lighter boxes on top of heavier ones.

What do I do when I move out?
There is no need to sign out or check out, just leave the lock and key inside the unit on the floor and close the door. 

Does Athens Mini Storage have a guarantee?
