SOME CONTENTS NOT SUITABLE FOR STORAGE UNITS.
When making business or personal storage plans, consider that all storage facilities have restrictions on what they will allow you to store. This is for your own protection as well as that of the facility staff and other self-storage customers. As a general rule, any item or material that is considered "inherently dangerous" will not be allowed inside your storage rental. Below are the most common items not allowed to be stored at De Pere Self Storage.If you're not sure if an item is allowed, please ask us before you move into your storage unit.
Combustible, Flammable, Hazardous or Toxic Materials
Considered “inherently dangerous,” these include gasoline, compressed gas, propane tanks, kerosene, lamp and motor oil, acid, grease, corrosives, fertilizers, paint, cleaners, chemicals, narcotics, or hazardous, toxic or biological waste. Asbestos or products containing asbestos are not allowed. You also cannot store fireworks or explosives.
Vehicles & Water Craft
Storing vehicles and boats is generally acceptable, as long as they are registered, insured and in operational condition. All water craft must be dry prior to storing. A copy of clear title is required with rental agreement.
Medical/Pharmaceutical Supplies and Equipment
If you are a sales representative, you may find a self-storage space a convenient place to manage medical supplies and pharmaceutical samples. It is a useful way to keep your products organized and easily accessible without cluttering up your office or filling your car trunk. While most supplies are acceptable, radioactive equipment – or anything that contains radioactive materials – cannot legally be stored.
