Self Storage Tips For Centennial CO
1. Smallest Space
2. Gather Materials
Start by gathering as many boxes as you think you will need as well as tape, markers, and packing material (e.g., foam shipping noodles, bubble wrap, packing paper or towels).
3. Uniform Sizes
If possible, try to use uniformly sized boxes for easy stacking.
Make up an inventory list of your items and keep it in a safe place (at home or in a safe deposit box) away from the unit.
Prepare your space by placing a protective cover on the floor under your goods.
6. Keep Dry
Place your storage items on 2×4 boards or on pallets to guard against dampness. Any concrete floor may become cold and damp.
Plan your storage space. Place items that you may need to access often in the front of the unit.
Do not store anything COMBUSTIBLE (e.g., paint thinner, gasoline, solvents, or paint).
9. Easier Access
Try to leave an aisle down the center of the storage unit for easier access. Leave a small space between the walls and boxes to allow for air circulation.
Stack heavier boxes on the bottom and lighter boxes on top.
11. Strong Boxes
Be sure your boxes are strong enough to hold 25-30 pounds (although we suggest not putting too much in each box).
12. List Contents
List contents of boxes on all four sides; number the boxes and seal with tape.
13. Wrap It Up
Dishes and glasses should be wrapped in paper and packed in sturdy boxes. Stack them on top.
Pictures and mirrors should be wrapped in cardboard, marked “FRAGILE” and stacked on end.
15. Extra Space
Furniture with drawers can be utilized as storage places for pictures, knick-knacks, china, silverware, small items, etc. Wrap them in tablecloths, towels, or blankets to prevent breakage.
Larger appliances make excellent “packaging cases” for blankets, towels, tablecloths and clothes.
Put TVs and other electronics in the rear of your unit.
18. Stored Together
Shovels, hoes, rakes, and hoses can be stored together in empty trash cans. Stack extra cans inside each other.
19. Removable Legs
Tables that have removable legs should be broken down to save space.
20. Sofas and Loveseats
Sofas and loveseats can be stored on end to save floor space. Wrap cushions in plastic and place on top of sofas.
21. Sharp or Heavy Objects
Avoid placing sharp or heavy objects on top of upholstered furniture.
22. Stuffed Furniture
Cover stuffed furniture with cardboard or blankets to protect against dust.
If you stand mattresses on their sides, prop them up so they stand straight. Otherwise, they tend to bend out of shape and become lumpy.
24. Metal Items
Wipe any items made of metal – bikes, metal tables, tools, etc. – with machine oil to prevent rusting.

Not only is the storage unit itself perfect for my needs but the staff and owners are AMAZING!!!! They have gone above and beyond at every step! I have had several storage units in the past and they all pale in comparison!
The rates are way under market and the staff is amazing!!!! The facility is always kept in order and the units are grade A. I would highly recommend using this facility.
The managers are excellent. They work with you to find the best deal. I found their prices to be very affordable for the space. Plus, they have a nice truck with a ramp to help make your move go easier, and it's free! This location is easy to access and is very clean. I will use them whenever I need storage.
You might think, "what can be said about a self storage place, they're all the same,," but you're wrong. I'll make this quick: - we're saving about $150/month renting here in an indoor, temperature controlled unit (compared to Smart Storage off Arapahoe and Gartrell) - the staff is SUPER nice, real top-notch people (Holly and Kirk...I'm looking at you) - we were able to use their moving truck, for free, saving even more money right there.
I just wanted to inform anyone that is looking for a storage facility that Broncos Parkway Self Storage is your answer! This is the nicest, cleanest, most reasonably priced storage facility I have ever encountered. The owners (Holly & Kirk) are super nice and great people. If your in the market for a storage unit... you can't pass up this place.
Thanks for the great unit and awesome facilities.
