Storage: Tips on How to Do It Right

Packing can be a pain, but when done correctly it can be a major time, space, and energy saver. Here are a few tips on how you can make the most of your self-storage space.

  1. When storing delicate heirlooms, use specially constructed boxes, such as wardrobe boxes, and  utilize dehumidifiers to prevent mildew build up.
  2. Store furniture carefully on boards or pallets.
  3. Cover mattresses and store them flat on level surfaces.
  4. Store small items like pots and pans in large appliances, such as stoves or refrigerators.
  5. Break down items (such as table legs) and store large furniture (like tabletops and sofas) on end to save space.
  6. Use protective covers and treat wood surfaces before storing.
  7. When storing business files, label all boxes and construct aisles so files are easily seen and accessible.
  8. Clean furniture, boxes and the storage unit of all food and perishables.
