  • Defrost and clean your AC unit before storing. This prevents any damage from leaking.
  • Plan a block of time for at least 20 minutes to view your unit and sign the lease.
  • Color coordinate totes or boxes with labels to make retrieving your items easy.
  • Wrap fragile items with bubble wrap and packing material. This will help keep them safe and secure until you need them.
  • Keep items that you will need access to first near the front of the unit. This makes retrieving them quick and easy in case you need them fast.
