Tips to ensure that your goods are efficiently and safely stored.

1. Choose the right sized storage unit.

A common mistake that people make is choosing too small of a unit. Be realistic with your space requirements. The last thing you want to happen is to not be able to fit everything in your unit, and have to lease a second unit! It is far more cost effective to purchase one larger unit, rather than two smaller ones.

2. Use protection on your belongings.

It is best to protect all furniture with old blankets, moving pads, or paper pads. Even the slightest shift of boxes or loose items above will cause scratches. A good rule-of-thumb is to always protect the 'top' of all furniture. Slight scratches are most likely to be noticed on the top-sides of furniture, and the top is usually where other items will be stacked.

3. Put your undesirables/valuables towards the back.

You don't want to have to pull out your entire unit to get to that space heater or pool toys! Keep items that you're likely to use more often towards the front of your unit. Also, the back of your unit can be a useful place for valuables that you are unlikely to need in the near future, such as important paperwork.

4. Load your belongings tight to maximize space efficiency.

The more 'cube' you can get with your belongings, the better. Be creative and take your time. For example, a wardrobe box or a floor speaker will fit nicely into a large sofa. Most recliners can easily be parted from it's base to save space. A bed frame will take up a tiny amount of space if it is disassembled. The more upright you can get your belongings, the better. If you stand up your mattress and boxspring vertically, it will provide a nice platform for a dining room chair set.

5. Do not store parishables or chemicals.

You should never store chemicals. It is against the law to do so. Also, it is better to throw out parishables (Like sugar) if you know you will not be using it in the near future. Trying to salvage parishables by storing them will nearly always cost you money in the long-run.
