List all the items that you can move. If there are many small items, group them and put them in bins. Note the dimensions, weight, and length of each item. Self-storage units will be filled with items, so it is important to know the boundaries for stacking your own things. To make it easier to organize your storage, place each item on a piece of sticky paper.

Decide on the storage limitations of your mini-warehouse before you begin arranging the parts of papers. To allow for walking space, subtract not less than 3 feet from the length of your self-storage unit. Remove a foot from the top of your unit to allow for better airflow. Consult the consultant at the self-storage unit about the details you can store and their weight limits.

Select the heavy items first. They will make up the base of the space. Store heavy items with limited stacking capabilities, such as beds, upright in order to maximize space.

Self-storage models should be designed upward, degree by level. You can place heavier products higher up. In their empty spaces, irregularly-shaped products can store small and lightweight packing containers. For example, a chair can accommodate a collection of figurines in the space occupied by it’s arms and back.

When placing engines or appliances in self-storage models, be careful. To avoid fire, empty all fuel and oil tanks. You should also observe hearth safety procedures, such as storing documents and guides in fire retardant boxes.

Remember to always clear out the storage area before unloading all your things. Spread a layer of disinfectant over your boxes, and then spray insect repellant on the corner. Keep mothballs near clothing, books, and other materials. Self-storage units should be cleaned at least every six months.

Self storage is no different. You can save money by learning how to organize all your belongings. It is possible to even add more items in your storage space. Maintain the condition of your belongings by performing correct maintenance.
