How Can I Protect My Antiques In Storage?
Do you have a sizable antiques collection? Whether you’re looking for short-term storage during an upcoming move or long-term storage because your collection has outgrown your home storage space, ADT Moving has a safe and secure storage option for you. With ADT Moving, you can get as much space as you need for as long as you need it, all at a great price.
To protect your antiques, follow these precautions before you rent a storage space:
• Inspect the storage facility yourself. ADT always welcomes its customers to visit our grounds. During the inspection, note how clean and well lit the storage spaces are.
• Make sure the facility provides some sort of round-the-clock electronic or video monitoring. At ADT, our storage facility boasts exterior lighting, fencing, gated entry, surveillance cameras, and on-site guard presence.
• Look for any evidence of a leaky roof or other water damage. A little water can do a lot of damage. While flooding is the obvious nightmare, it doesn’t take much water to turn your belongings into a soggy mess.
• Make sure the storage facility is climate-controlled. Antiques are sensitive to humidity and temperature and extreme temperatures and humidity ranges can lead to mold and mildew growth, metal corrosion, and paper rot. It is an absolute must that the unit will have individual temperature and humidity controls.
We look forward to helping you solve all your storage needs and requirements.
