Keeping Your Self-Storage Unit Organized Easily
It is all too easy for a self-storage unit to end up looking like that closet you are afraid to open, or that corner of the garage you’ll tidy up some day. Protect your valuables and save yourself some stress by following just a few easy steps listed below for an organized self-storage unit.
? Make a List
Start out with a list of every item you are storing. This is helpful to do before you start filling your unit. Having it all laid out in front of you will help you plan where to place each item to maximize the amount of available space. The list can later hang inside the unit to remind you of which items you stored.
? Make a Map
Make a simple map of your storage unit as you pack it up. Three months from now when you are searching for your summer clothing or those tax papers from three years ago that map will save you the stress of having to tear apart the entire unit.
? Pack Properly
Plan ahead when you’re packing. You can save space by placing boxes on bookshelves or small items inside a washing machine or dryer. Organized just right, you’ll be amazed at how much you can fit inside your storage unit.
? Label Everything
While this step may seem obvious, it is often overlooked, especially if you are packing in a hurry. Even if you only have a few items to store now, it is still important to label each box accurately. You may add to your stored items later and those boxes could be easily mislaid if they aren’t labeled clearly.
? Protect Your Valuables
There are several ways to protect valuable items, including important papers, in your self-storage unit. The most important step is careful packing. Make sure you provide ample padding to breakable items and label delicate boxes.
If you are storing clothing, furniture, instruments, important documents, artwork or electronics you should consider renting a temperature-controlled storage unit to prevent damage from extreme temperatures or humidity.
? Use a Storage App
It seems there is an app for just about everything these days, and self-storage is no exception. There are a variety of apps that can help you stay organized. One example is called Moving Day. As you pack and load up each item you can easily categorize it with the app. Moving Day even lets you assign values to each item in case you have to make an insurance claim one day.
