Seasonal Items

As life goes on, children grow and eventually move out on their own. This leaves you with a lot of extra furniture that is not being put to use but you want to save in case your children will be needing it for their growing families in the future. By placing furniture in a storage unit you can save space in your home and ensure the safety and quality of the furniture. Before placing furniture in storage make sure it is clean, dissembled (if possible) and covered with sheets or packing blankets to protect it for possible dust and dirt accumulation over the years. 



Depending on your collectible interests, you may be needing that extra bit of space your home doesn’t seem to provide. By storing your collectibles in a storage unit at All American Self Storage in San Mateo you can be assured your precious collectibles will be safe and kept in pristine quality. Make sure your items are packed in the appropriate storage bins to keep out moisture and dust in the changing seasons. 


Baby Items 

Babies are known to grow very rapidly. As a result they grow out of clothing and toys within a matter of months. Because these items are great to re-use and give to family friends it is ideal to place them in a storage unit while they are not being used. Make sure to remain organized when storing these items, especially when it comes to the clothing. Arranging them by size can help save you the trouble of digging through boxes and bags when you are looking for something specifically.
