How upset do you get by wasting things? Whether it is food or time, it is always frustrating to realize that something is being wasted. That is also true with renting a storage unit. You don’t ever want to feel like you’re being ripped off and paying for space that you’re not using to its full effect. Here’s how you can maximize the benefit of a storage unit:
Organize as you pack
Anything that you put into a storage unit is something that you will one day want to retrieve. Businesses often use storage units to keep excess inventory. You might want to store your holiday decorations there or other collectibles. That’s why it’s important to make a careful inventory of all the things you are putting in storage. Every box should have a number and that number should correspond to a list of specific items that are inside that box. This way you can pull up the inventory and know exactly what box you need to go for.
Utilize packing space
It goes without saying that you should fill up your boxes. However, there are other packing spaces that you could potentially use for storage as well. Dressers can hold clothing, suitcases can hold books and refrigerators can store boxes as well. Just think about what you’re putting in that unit and how it can be filled up.
A table is going to take up a lot of space in a storage unit. Unless you are stacking things on top of and underneath that table you should consider breaking it down. In fact, there are many pieces of furniture that you could probably disassemble in order to make more space in your storage unit.
Protect your property
Just as you want to keep your property safe within your own home should also take extra precautions when it comes to putting items into a storage unit. These units aren’t completely sealed. That means dust and dirt can find a way of drifting in. Try not to have any piece of furniture or clothing exposed. Wrap them all up and furniture pads.
