Storage Tips and Advice

Welcome to our Storage Tips and Advice hub! Whether you’re a first-time renter or a seasoned storage user, our expert tips will help you pack, store, and organize your items effectively in your storage unit.

Packing for Storage

Proper packing is crucial for protecting your belongings while they are stored. Follow these guidelines to ensure your items remain safe and in good condition:

  • Use the Right Supplies: Invest in quality boxes, packing tape, bubble wrap, and markers. Avoid used or damaged boxes as they may compromise the safety of your items.
  • Label Everything: Clearly label each box with its contents and the room it belongs to. This will make unpacking and locating items much easier.
  • Disassemble Large Items: Save space and protect your furniture by disassembling larger items. Wrap pieces individually and store screws and hardware in labeled bags.

Storing Your Items

How you arrange your items in the storage unit can affect their condition and your ability to find things. Here are some strategies to maximize space and protect your belongings:

  • Plan Your Space: Start by placing larger items and boxes you won’t need access to frequently towards the back of the unit.
  • Stack Smartly: Place heavier boxes at the bottom and lighter ones on top to prevent damage. Ensure boxes are sturdy enough to hold the weight.
  • Use Shelving: To keep items off the floor and organized, consider using metal shelving. This also makes it easier to access things without moving everything around.

Organizing Your Storage Unit

Keeping your storage unit organized is key to managing your items effectively. Use these tips to keep your storage space tidy and accessible:

  • Create an Inventory List: Keep a detailed list of what’s stored and where. Consider creating a map of your unit’s layout to locate items quickly.
  • Maintain an Aisle: Leave an aisle down the center of your storage unit for easy access to all items.
  • Frequent Access Items: Store items you'll need to access frequently at the front of the unit.
