Best Way To Organize Your Storage Unit

Instead of cramming more things into your garage or closets, it might be a good idea to rent a storage unit. This frees up space in your home and allows you to keep your property safe. Storage units are rented by size. You want to maximize that space as efficiently as possible. Here are some of the best ways to organize your storage unit:


Use Pallets

It’s a good idea to put your boxes up on pallets. This prevents past from making a home in your boxes. It also can help with potential flooding if your storage unit helps be outside and on the ground level. It will help to visualize the space before you start packing it so that you can arrange your pallets accordingly. The goal would be to create pathways between the boxes that allow you easier access to them.

Put Up Shelves

You can put up shelving units in addition to the pallets to organize your storage unit. Again, it all comes down to a matter of accessibility. They will come a time when you might want to get a one of the boxes and you want to be able to find it without pulling everything out.

Take Extra Caution

If you are storing large mirrors then they should be carefully wrapped in moving blankets and stored standing on end, never flat. You probably should stack boxes any hire then you can reach them. The heavy boxes need to be on the bottom. If you know you’re going to be taking items out like holiday decorations, then those should be the last thing in, so they can be the first ones out.

Utilize Empty Space

You can utilize the empty space in your own furniture that you’re putting in storage. For instance, a refrigerator that has been cleaned out and is totally dry makes a perfect place for a few boxes. The same can be said for an old armoire. If you’re putting suitcases in storage, then fill those up with some items as well.

Don’t Pack Clutter

As you move items from your home into the storage unit, you don’t want to bring clutter with you. That’s just paying to rent space for junk. Instead, turn all that clutter over to Junk King Los Angeles. These are the professional junk haulers who will quickly make your unwanted rubbish disappear. Getting rid of that clutter could cut the things you want to put into storage in half. A rubbish removal session from Junk King Los Angeles is what you need to organize your storage unit.

Don’t Turn Your Los Angeles Home Into A Storage Unit

Los Angeles is the home of the hit reality series, “Storage Wars.” That is where a bunch of “treasure hunters” place blind bids on abandoned storage units in the hopes of finding something of value. You can tell that this idea has caught on because now the auctions depicted on the shows are crowded with folks hoping to score some of that storage unit gold. Although you might occasionally find an item of value, it is not something you’ll be able to retire on. Of course, you might have your own treasure hidden away in your home storage unit. That would be the area in your house that has become the dumping ground for all the unwanted stuff you’ve collected over the years. It might be time to go through those storage areas and get them cleaned out. When you’re ready, Junk King will be standing by to provide the assist.


You’ll want to take your time going through your storage areas to make sure you separate the valuable objects from the rubbish. It is amazing how much stuff we can accumulate even in just a year.

That item goes into “storage.” With Junk King’s help, you can clear out those areas and make sure your space is being used for the good stuff. With Junk King’s help, you’ll might be able to clear enough junk to set up a home office or yoga corner. It will certainly be easier to find the holiday decorations this year!

The added benefit of hiring Junk King to clean out your home storage unit is that they are partners in keeping LA green.

This often requires additional drop offs to the various centers but that is not anything you have to think about. It is all included in the Junk King package.

As for pricing, you’ll only be paying a flat fee that is based on how much space your junk will take up on the back of the truck. It is a fair price that includes all the charges. Don’t go another week with all that junk in your home storage unit. Let Junk King clear it out.
