Name your best storage unit tips!

    I need to get stuff out of the house, so I’m probably going to rent a storage unit to put away some of my belongings. I don’t wish to get rid of it, but just store it away indefinitely.

    It’s my first time using a storage unit. Do any of you have any tips or best practices for me?

    What items are you putting into storage? Depending on what you have, you can get yourself the appropriate storage unit.

    For example, you may need a unit that is temperature-controlled. Do you need to keep stuff cold or warm? Are you worried about moisture or humidity or anything else like that?

    Bottom line: you don’t want to use a unit that is eventually going to destroy precious or expensive items.

    Wow, I had no idea that there were storage units that were so detail-oriented and catered to such needs! That’s good though.

    In my case, I have no such worries. I just need the space.

    In any case, I would still warn you to use proper packing or protective material, just to be on the safe side.

    Up to about 2 months ago, I was using Storage City and I was pretty impressed with the service. If you are nearby the area, I suggest you contact them and explain your situation.

    I didn’t need the space anymore. I managed to get rid of some things and sold other things. Still, it was a good place that served its purpose for me.

    Thanks for the tip. I’m around the area, so I might consider them.

    I’m assuming you don’t know how long you will be using a storage unit? Use strong, durable cardboard boxes. I also suggest you don’t make your boxes too heavy. Try to mix some of the heavy and lighter items and place these in the same box.

    Make sure you use protective packaging such as bubble wrap. Any fragile things like glass can be appropriately wrapped. Same process with paintings and other pictures. Ask the storage unit about what security measures are in place.

    Whatever you place in your boxes, make sure to label it properly. Stay organized, because this really helps. When you come by for something, you can easily find specific items if they are labelled properly.
