Delaware Climate Controlled Storage Tips

When selecting a unit size be aware of how well your items will stack into the unit. Odd size items take up more room and fragile items cannot be stacked on or around very easily. Use caution when stacking on particle board or composite furniture, those items will not support heavy weight stacked on them for a long period of time. Remember to leave space at the top of your unit to for air to circulate.
