What you can’t Place in Storage

In order to protect your belongings and the belongings of others at Ogden Self Storage, we have put in place some rules when it comes to what you can and cannot store within your unit. We do this so you can rest easy knowing your valuables are safe and secure throughout their stay at our facility. Below are the items we recommend you leave out of your self-storage unit.
Cash should be placed in a bank account or safely in your home. Never in a storage unit.

Plants will not survive in a storage unit. They need fresh air and sunlight in order to thrive and grow. Additionally, they could attract unwanted guests such as bugs and rodents, which can cause damage to the other items you are storing in your unit. The attraction of pests can also damage your neighboring tenant’s items as well.

Firearms, munitions, gunpowder and explosives are also not allowed. The probability of something going wrong with any of these items is too high for them to be placed in storage. If an accident does occur it can cause harm to your items as well as others who have units in the facility. It is best if they are locked up and stored properly elsewhere.

Perishable Foods are also prohibited in storage units. When food is placed in a storage unit it can attract unwanted guests and have the potential to rot. It can cause extensive damage to the items in your storage unit as well as the units next to yours. One exception to this rule is canned goods as they do not perish and are protected from unwanted visitors.

Living or Kenneling in a storage unit is not an option. While a storage unit may be cheaper than room and board for you or your pets, it is not suitable for living in. If you do place your animal in a storage unit you will be charged with animal cruelty.

Hazardous material and waste storage should not be placed in your storage unit. If it’s corrosive, chemical, odorous, noxious or toxic, it can’t go in storage, either. This includes lead paint, asbestos, urea formaldehyde, polychlorinated biphenyl, petroleum, petroleum products and constituents, methane, medical waste, toxic substances and related materials as defined in several federal acts and state statutes.
