  • Take a few precautions to help prevent damage and make it easier to find things later.
  • Wood pallets are provided at the Budget Storage office for extra protection of your goods. They are especially good for storing your cloth items on, ie: box spring and mattress, etc.
  • Add bay leaves to boxes to ward off most insects and household pests.


  • When choosing a storage unit, factor in a little more room than your belongings take up in order to allow everything to fit. Nothing worse than finding your unit is too small.
  • Purchase a secure, high quality lock. One of the most highly recommended is the disc lock, which is available for purchase in the Budget Storage office in Coeur d’Alene.
  • Any type of vehicle may be stored in the unit to free up space in your garage. Please provide a copy of registration or title to prove ownership.

Thank you for storing with Budget Storage. We appreciate your business!
