Basic Storage Tips

Storage space is needed for a variety of reasons, such as when moving to a smaller home, when your house is not yet ready or when there are just too many things to unpack and not enough time. And, simply having too much stuff is growingly becoming accepted as a perfectly good reason to rent storage space.

Here are a few basic storage tips for storing your household items in a storage facility:

  • Using pallets, tarps or plastic sheets on the floor of the storage unit is a good idea, especially when you storage unit is on the ground floor or accessible from outside. These items will help prevent water and moisture from getting in and damaging your stored items.
  • Allow for ventilation and help prevent mold and mildew problems, especially in climates where high humidity levels are common by not packing items directly against the wall. Leave an inch or so of space wherever possible to promote air flow.
  • Leave enough room at the front of your storage unit so you can get to your things without too much trouble. Keep frequently accessed items easily accessible, near the front.
  • Consider using shelving to increase the space available for storage within your unit.
