Self Storage is a great way to store your belongings. Correct planning will make for an efficient and cost effective storage experience. If you frequently use the storage space, consider a slightly larger unit. It may be more convenient than a smaller unit that is tightly packed.

Below are some handy tips when packing and storing your belongings.

  • Create an aisle in the middle of your unit for easy access.
  • Make sure you label your boxes or bins and have them facing
    out to be easily read.
  • Be sure to have items you will be needing more often in the
    front of the unit.
  • Place mattress and box springs in protective plastic covers.
  • Place heavier objects and boxes on the bottom and stack lighter boxes on top of them.
  • Store small delicate items or clothing in bureau drawers.
  • Remove legs from tables, tie or tape together. Place hardware in plastic bags and tape to legs.
  • When storing lawn equipment, drain any fluids prior to storing.
  • When packing books for storage place them flat in boxes to avoid damage to the spines.
  • Keep a step ladder in your unit for easy access of boxes and bins on top.
  • Store large furniture pieces vertically such as couches and loveseats.
  • Make sure that boxes are taped on the bottom to prevent "fallout".
  • Use a HIGH QUALITY lock, preferably a "disc lock", for your unit.
