Household Storage

Sometimes, you just need a little more space. If you’ve ever wished that you had a basement, or another garage, or just more room in your house, a storage unit might just be for you. Luckily, Storage Express has competitively priced storage units that can be used for a wide variety of household storage needs.

What Household Items Can I Store?

Almost all household items can be easily and safely stored in a storage unit for either the short or long term. Examples of some commonly stored items include:

  • Furniture
  • Appliances
  • Electronics
  • Documents
  • Clothing
  • Toys
  • School and office supplies
  • Decor
  • And more!

Depending on what you are storing, you may want to spring for a climate-controlled unit. These units are heated when it’s cold and cooled when it’s hot, keeping your items at a consistent temperature no matter the temperature outside.

What Can’t I Store?

However, there are items that you can’t store in our storage units for safety and liability reasons. Some of these items include:

Toxic Chemicals or Biological Materials

Toxic chemicals like corrosives, gasoline, and acids are prohibited, as well as biological waste.


If you have extra tires lying around, they are prohibited in Storage Express units. Disposing of tires is costly and a burden on facility managers—not to mention that the rubber is flammable and can cause a hard-to-extinguish fire.

Illegal or Hazardous Items

Illegal items include drugs, unregistered vehicles, stolen property, and more. We also prohibit weapons like guns, other firearms, ammunition, and explosives.

Perishable Food

Both perishable food and pet food items are not allowed in our units. Storing food like meat, produce, dairy, or bread can attract pests and produce a foul odor, as they spoil easily.

Plants or Animals (Including Yourself)

Whether your plants are alive and well or wilting, they’re not allowed in your Storage Express unit. They may attract pests or a larger infestation that causes damage to not only your belongings but also those of neighboring units. In addition, a storage unit is no place for animals or people to live. Ensure the safety of you and your pets by keeping all living creatures at home.

If you have more specific questions about what you can and can’t store, just ask!
