Our Personal Tips

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.

  1. I like your idea of using uniform sized boxes that are easy to handle and are sturdy. That is smart to have space left in your storage unit for walking space, so you can access things in your storage unit. Putting storage items on pallets, seems like a great way to keep out moisture. I will have to use your tips with my storage unit, I just rented. Thanks for your help!

  2. I really like your idea of labeling all of the boxes so you know what you packed. I think the stuff you do not use as often should be more in the back and the stuff you would need right away should go in the front. I also agree that you should have nonbreakables and heavy boxes on the bottom. That way it reduces danger.
