You may have guns and other firearms that are legally registered to you, but we will not be able to store them for you. This is because firearms can accidentally go off, ignite an explosion or even worse, injure or kill people.

3. Explosives

We do not allow explosives of any kind in our containers, including fireworks and sparklers.

In short, we do not allow storing anything that may go off when ignited or when it comes into contact with sparks because it can lead to unnecessary losses.

5. Chemicals

It is not a good idea to store chemicals in a self storage container. Here are a couple of reasons why you cannot store them with Boylin’s.

The first is that in case of a leak the chemicals will damage the rest of your items.

The second is that a leak can be very hazardous.

If you own chemicals that need storage you should talk to the local authorities, about the best way to keep them for the long term.

If you will not need them it is best to dispose of them in an environmentally friendly and safe way.

6. Radioactive materials

These are also not allowed. They may seem stable but it is impossible to see how they will react when stored for the long term or when exposed to other materials.

In case of leaks we have no way to protect people who come near your rented container.

7. Perishables

This is a ‘no-brainer’. Don’t put anything in a container that will rot over time.

Before you bring your refrigerator to us make sure to remove all food and drinks from it. Clean it thoroughly so that it doesn’t start to smell after a while.

Check all cupboards and cabinets to make sure that they don’t contain any perishables.
