Frequently Accessing Your Unit
If you are going to use some of the items on a regular basis, be sure to place them in the front of the unit, making access to them easier.
Use wardrobe boxes to hang clothing, draperies and other fabrics so that they can breathe while in storage.
Keep Your Storage Unit Organized
When placing your items into storage, draw a simple map of where everything is located. Keep the map along with your lease so it will be handy when you need it.
Label Your Stored Items
Label everything you store in your unit and keep a written inventory along with your locator map.
Storing Important Documents
If you are storing boxes of records or documents, consider using shelves to maximize your self storage space.
Protecting Your Stored Belongings
Plan to cover your belongings once in storage for further protection.
