While Self Storage of Elizabethtown is incredibly flexible regarding what you can store, there are several items that are not permitted to be stored in the units. If you have any questions regarding what can and cannot be stored in the units please contact Susan at 717.314.8624.

The most common restrictions include:

  • Inflammable or Combustible Materials - These types of materials will pose very real danger to the entire facility and personnel if stored within a unit, not to mention your own stored items if there is an accident. The list of restrictions includes gas, fuel, fireworks etc. Please empty all fuel tanks, even your lawnmower or other small machinery, before placing these items in self storage.

  • Animals or Animal Products - Storing pets or other animals in the units is not permitted. Storing pets in a self storage unit even when checked in on daily is cruel and could result in prosecution. Animal products are also not allowed in self storage as they will attract vermin.

  • Illegal or stolen goods - No reputable self storage provider will allow you to store illegal or stolen goods on their premises; the same holds true for Self Storage of Elizabethtown.

  • Firearms - Self Storage of Elizabethtown does allow for firearms to be stored in the units; however, you will have to secure your weapons with trigger locks or other similar security features. Ammunition of any kind is not permitted to be stored at Self Storage of Elizabethtown.

  • Fragrances - Self Storage of Elizabethtown does not permit the storage of fragrant items or anything that will cause a significant odor on site.

  • Aerosols - Aerosols or pressurized inflammable materials are not permitted to be stored at Self Storage of Elizabethtown. There is the possibility that these items could burst and cause accidents, this is especially true considering most aerosols are extremely flammable.

  • Hazardous Materials - Self Storage of Elizabethtown does not allow the storage of hazardous, toxic or chemical materials on site as these items can cause very real damage if they spill or if there is a fire.

  • Plants - Please do not store plants or any other living things in a self storage unit as they will attract insects and pests.

  • Perishable Food/ DryGoods - If you're looking to store the contents of your house in self-storage, it might make sense simply box up the contents of your kitchen cupboards and stick them in the storage unit. While this would be fine for canned goods, there are restrictions on perishable foods and dry goods as they will attract pests.

The list presented above is not all inclusive and is meant to be a general guide as to what types of items are not permitted. If you have any doubt as to whether or not the item you wish to store is permitted by Self Storage of Elizabethtown please contact Susan at 717.314.8624.
