Simplifying Your Storage Space

If you rent a storage unit to house your Christmas decorations or extra furniture, you might find it hard to remember what you have packed into that tiny space. I found myself with this problem a few years back, after I moved a bunch of extra stuff that I had inherited into storage. However, your storage unit doesn't have to become an unsightly mess. This blog is all about simplifying your storage space by helping you to organize things. Check out these articles to learn how a clean and tidy storage unit might help you, and how you can make changes today.

Deciding On The Right Self-Storage Unit

Jackson Russell

When you are going to be putting your things into a self-storage unit, you want to make sure you choose the unit that is going to meet all of your storage needs. The considerations detailed in this article should make it easier for you to know which self-storage unit will meet your needs the most.

Indoor and outdoor units

Choosing between an indoor or outdoor unit is one of the things you will need to decide on. An outdoor unit will allow you to drive right up to the unit, which will be very convenient when you are putting your things into the unit, as well as when you are moving out of it. You can move those large items right from the truck into the unit without needing to turn sharp corners and carry it a good distance. Most of the outdoor units will also have larger doors, so you don't need to worry about steering around them either.

An indoor unit will offer you a climate controlled environment, so you won't have to worry about getting overheated or freezing while you are moving things into or out of your unit, as well as any time you go to get at something that's packed. If you live in an area with a lot of snow or rain, then an indoor unit will also allow you to get into the unit without getting wet.

The right size units

If you are going to be putting your things in the self-storage unit and leaving them alone until you move them out, then you can go with the exact size of unit you need. Keep in mind, you can only pack your boxes as high as safely possible without running the risk of crushing the bottom ones, which would lead to shifting and a possible full collapse.

If you are going to want to get in the unit to pull out some items while your things are packed, then you should consider going with a unit that's larger than you actually need. This way, you can pack the unit with aisles you can walk between. This will make it a lot easier to get to all of your boxes without pulling any extra ones out of the unit.

Choosing the right self-storage unit will make it easier to move your belongings and provide you with just what you need to keep those items safe and well preserved.
