The next thing that you must not forget is that the firewood must not be placed on the ground. As the pieces left on the ground might eventually rot, you must try to place them off the ground. Racks, tiles or various other options can be considered to keep firewood off the ground. Many people who do not have proper sheds for storing firewood often use plastic sheets for covering them. While wrapping firewood with plastic sheets the common mistake many make is covering it completely, from all the sides. So this will cut off the air circulation and moisture will get trapped inside, leading to damp firewood! This might further rot the firewood. Proper air circulation is of prime importance while storing firewood. Even if you decide to wrap them in plastic sheets, it is best to keep the firewood open from two sides. This will help air circulation and keep the firewood in a good condition.
Also, it is advisable to use a cotton cloth to cover furniture. And don't forget to wrap up fragile items in cardboard before storing. Do not utilize newspapers to wrap anything as the ink from the papers will smudge and rub on the goods. Now that you are aware about the things to know before renting a storage unit, conduct a good amount of research before you finalize it.
It is advisable that you get your stored goods insured. The storage insurance will be available to you once you rent the unit. When the facility management collects the premium, they have their own financial gain in it. Hence, it is advisable to consult your own agent before availing the insurance from the facility. You can also check if your homeowner's insurance or renter's insurance covers the goods stored off-site.
Get all the details related to the storage unit in writing. Mention the size, location, climate control, security, etc., in the contract. Do not forget to include clauses like termination, payment and late payment terms, insurance, renewal, etc.
