Unit Lighting – Not all units will have built-in lighting options. These lights are long lasting and have 1000LM, that’s bright! Depending on the size of your unit, or if you have multiple, you might need more than one lantern. Don’t forget batteries!

Unit Shelving – Menlo-Atherton does not allow ANY modifications to units. That means no drilling, screwing or gluing anything to our walls, ceilings or floors.  Here are some handy shelving options. The best thing about shelves… they’re useful wherever you end up, even after you move out of your unit!

Stationary Shelf

Rolling Shelf

Heavy-Duty Shelf

Unit Climate – Menlo Parks climate is dry and we typically do not have moisture problems.  However if you are moving from a damp climate, like Pacifica, we recommend moisture absorption product. Use small silica packets in your bins to keep them fresh!

Fun fact – You can put the silica packets in an air-tight container with a water-damaged device to help bring it back to life!

Name Brand (3-Pack)

Off-Brand Option (10-pack)

Unit Organization – We recommend only using plastic bins. Cardboard absorbs moisture and does not age well.  Buying bins at Home Depot or Walmart is most cost effective. Here are our recommendations.

22″ L x 16.5″ W x 13.03″ H

26.8”D x 17.9”W x 12.4”H

30.5″L x 20.125″W x 14.25″H

Keep bins closed when you’re traveling
