Whether you are planning a move or simply need extra storage space that
your home or office can't supply, mini storage provides a secure and
convenient solution. Chelsea Mini Storage offers a variety of self storage
and safe storage options in one of the nation's largest storage facilities
Preparing Your Belongings for Self Storage
Storage units offer the extra storage space you need at a safe and secure
off-site location. Preparing your belongings properly for mini storage
will ensure each item remains in the best possible condition while in storage.
- Opt for plastic bins and boxes over cardboard boxes, especially for items
that will be placed on the floor of your storage unit.
- Wash clothing, towels, and linens before you put them in storage so they
will be ready to use when you remove them.
- Label each box clearly, either with a numbering system or by writing the
contents of the box on its lid. If you will be stacking boxes, write their
numbers or contents on the side so you can find this information more easily.
- Cover furniture and artwork with drop cloths to keep it clean and free
of dust during storage.

Seasonal Items: Seasonal décor is a great way to keep your home looking fresh throughout
the year. Storing out-of-season decorations in a storage room is a great
way to maintain a clutter-free home, freeing up space in your garage,
attic, crawlspace, and closets for items you need year-round.
Clothing: Mini storage is the perfect solution to an overflowing closet. Keep warm-
or cold-weather clothes in your storage unit when they're out of season
to maintain a more manageable wardrobe.
Documents and Files: Not all documents and files need to be kept on hand. You can store older
documents or those that aren't needed regularly in secure self storage
so they can be easily found without taking up space in your home or office.
Furniture: Too much furniture can clutter your home, making it feel smaller and less
inviting. When selling a home, it's also best to remove excess furniture
for staging. Keep your furnishings safely out of the way in self storage
until they are needed again.
