Self Storage Tips

  • Self Storage Cleveland TNSort your boxes and items to be stored in order of what you will need to access most often and least often. Put the items you won’t need to access as frequently in the back and on the bottom of your stacks. That way you won’t have to empty out your unit searching for an item.
  • Place heavier items and larger boxes on the bottom of your stacks, so that fragile or lighter items aren’t crushed.
  • Label your boxes clearly on all sides, and try to group them by category within the unit. It will make it quicker to find things in your storage unit, and to unpack later.
  • Consider using layers of plywood to reduce pressure on lower layers of boxes and create a flat surface for the next layer. This can make it easier to take advantage of all your vertical space.
  • Invest in furniture covers and mattress bags to keep your upholstered items fresh. Even in the cleanest climate controlled storage units, it never hurts to give your items extra protection from dust, odor, and moisture.
  • Keep items in the storage unit that will make it easier for you to reach the things you need and keep the unit fresh. That might be a step ladder, packing tape, scissors or an Xacto knife, a Sharpie, spare bubble wrap, or even a broom.
  • Placing pallets, plywood, or even canvas between the first layer of boxes and the floor can help air circulate around them, letting you take full advantage of climate control.
  • Use all available space. Not only can you stack vertically in the unit, but look for gaps created by furniture. Small, flat boxes can slide under a couch. Boxes of books or knickknacks can be tucked into the space between shelves on bookcases. After moving, items can be put back into dresser drawers.
  • Do not store anything combustible, flammable or perishable, such as live animals, perishables, liquids, explosives, flammable liquids and fuels, toxic materials, or other items that need a controlled environment.
  • Drain gasoline and oil from lawn mowers and other items with small engines.
  • Leave an aisle down the middle of your unit if you will need to access your things often or will be storing for a very long time. You never know when you will need to hunt for something in the very back of your unit!
  • Use blankets, sheets, or drop cloths as a layer between pieces of furniture to avoid scratches and scuffs.
