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:

  • Make sure to store frequently used items near the front of your unit.

  • When trying to make the most out of available space, remember to think vertically and stack your things.

  • Always put light items on the top of a stack.

  • Use small boxes for heavy items. Overloading big boxes with heavy objects can result in a back injury.

  • Put labels on boxes to save time and stress later.

  • Invest in a quality padlock for an extra layer of security.

  • 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.)

  • Create a center aisle so that it is easy to get through your unit and access all of your items.

  • Wrap select items, such as furniture, in plastic wrap to ensure they stay dust free.
