First-Time Storage Rental Tips

new storage unit
Whether you’re trying to make room in the garage for your cars or need to store your company’s extra equipment or files, choosing a new storage unit for the first time can be overwhelming. With a little planning and a few simple tricks, you’ll be able to confidently choose the perfect unit size and type. Begin by assessing your needs. With an accurate inventory of the volume and type of your items, you will get a clearer picture of what you need. Whether the items are for commercial or residential use, it’s important to determine the following:
  • Do your possessions need a climate-controlled environment?
  • Will you be accessing these items regularly or occasionally?
  • Are they heavy or bulky?
  • How long of a lease do you anticipate needing?
When storing paper files or furniture susceptible to temperature extremes, you will need a climate stable option. Heavy objects are hard to move, so choosing a ground floor option can be worth it. Knowing your lease timeframe can help you decide what kind of contract to sign and can even help you negotiate rates.

Plan Your Space

With a little bit of prep work, you can get a head start on organizing your unit. Simple steps, like putting heavy boxes on the bottom, will make your life much simpler. Put items you will need to access frequently near the front. Clearly number your boxes on the outside. Create a guide by making a list of what’s inside each box. By using these self-storage tips, you will save much frustration when you return to retrieve something from your rental. Organizing and storing your stuff can be stressful.
