Get the Most from Your Storage Unit with These Space-Saving Tips

Carefully manage your storage space and get an even bigger value out of your unit rental dollar. Even the smallest units at Secure Self Storage can fit a large number of items if you pack them carefully. These tips are a great way to start:

  1. Make sure to store frequently used items near the front of your unit.
  2. When trying to make the most out of available space, remember to think vertically and stack your things.
  3. Always put light items on the top of a stack.
  4. Use small boxes for heavy items. Overloading big boxes with heavy objects can result in a back injury.
  5. Put labels on boxes to save time and stress later.
  6. Invest in a quality padlock for an extra layer of security. Secure Self Storage sells padlocks on site for your convenience.
  7. If furniture can be disassembled, do so. You will end up saving a large amount of space this way. (Just remember to mark the pieces for easy reassembly.)
  8. Create a center aisle so that it is easy to get through your unit and access all of your items.
  9. Wrap select items, such as furniture, in plastic wrap to ensure they stay dust free.
