STORAGE TIPS

Beginner's Guide To Storage Units

Posted on May 13, 2022

Storage lockers can eliminate the stresses of not having enough storage space at home.

Renting a self-storage unit can help you with your storage needs and declutter your life! If you're new to renting a storage locker, you may not know what to consider. We've put together a guide to help you find the perfect storage solution.


Picking The Best Storage Option

People often assume there is only one type of storage available, and that's a storage locker at a storage facility. You can rent a unit at a public storage location, but depending on what you are storing, will determine if you require a temperature-controlled unit or if a regular storage locker will suffice. In addition to transporting your belongings to a local storage centre, there is the option of having a portable storage container on your property, giving you easy access to your things.


Know The Size You Need

If you have never rented a storage locker, you most likely don't know the appropriate size you need. This is a very common question, and it's best to contact the experts at Space Centre Storage to determine your best option, whether for outdoor or indoor storage.


Prepare Your Belongings

If you are using a storage locker, chances are you intend to keep the items in the unit for an extended period of time. As you're packing, it may be easy to remember what is in each box, but you will most likely forget over time. To avoid having to reopen boxes constantly, label all of the packing boxes.

As you load your storage locker, keep items that you think will come out often near the front. Organizing your locker will save you lots of time in the long run.


Check On Your Items

Don't just put your stuff in a storage unit and never check on it. It's essential to go through your stored items from time to time, and depending on how long it has been since you visited your locker, there may be items you can part with. By decluttering your unit, you may be able to downsize your rental, which leads to cost savings in the long-run.
