When you put your items into storage it is important that you make an inventory that is shared and signed by you and your storage unit service provider.
Inventories are a useful tool when returning to your unit(s). We all know how easy it is to forget the specific spots where we have placed our items, however an inventory can save you time and hassle if you know where to look.
An inventory is great for keeping track of all your items but is also an extremely important piece of paperwork should you need to make an insurance claim.
Creating an inventory is pretty straight forward, it is essentially a list. On your inventory you want to include the item, quantity, condition, value and receipts if possible. It is also important to note the box number so that you can easily locate the item(s).
When removing or adding items to your container(s) it is important that you revise your inventory and share this with your storage unit providers, ensuring that they have an up to date record.
