Try These Smart Self-Storage Tips

Self-storage is a great way to declutter your home and free up space. There are certain tips—such as situating often-used storage to the front of the unit—that can help you keep your stored items protected and easily accessible. Let’s take a closer look at some helpful tips to get the most out of your storage unit.

Consider Special Requirements

Some of your items may not be the best choices to put into a storage unit. For example, candles, snow globes, and aerosol cans may have specific requirements for storing locations and temperatures. Consider that a candle may melt in an overly hot storage unit, and a snow globe may become damaged or evaporate. Protect your items at all cost by understanding their storage requirements.

Situate Self-Storage Items

If you plan on visiting your storage unit frequently, then ensure the items you will need the most are located toward the front of the storage unit. This will save you time and frustration because you will not need to hunt down items. It can also protect your stored items from damage that might happen when you hunt down other items in your storage unit.

Lift Furniture and Valuables

Another smart tip to further protect your valuables is to lift them up on tables, bricks, and pallets. Flooding and disasters rarely occur at storage facilities. However, it is best to be prepared for anything. Use bricks, pallets, or a stored table to keep your moving boxes off the ground. You may also prefer to lift your furniture off the ground as well. In addition to lifting your furniture, stack as much as you can against the wall. This will minimize any damage that might occur to your furniture in case there is a flood.
