We have listed a few self storage tips that are typically not thought of when you are in the process of moving into a storage unit! These are helpful handy tips that keep your storage organized and safe during the rental time.
- Select medium uniform sized boxes that are easy to handle, sturdy and easy to stack. Label each box on the side and top for easy identification.
- Leave a few inches of air space around the inside perimeter of the unit to promote air flow. Place wooden strips or pallets on the floor to protect against moisture.
- Stack heavy non-breakables on the bottom, lighter and fragile items on the top. Place items you need often near the front of the unit
- Do not forget to secure your unit with a good lock and provide insurance coverage on your items while they are in storage.
