A few handy self-storage tips you might want to consider.
Plan aheadKeep your frequently used items at the front of your unit where you can get at them easily.
Map itAs you move into your storage space, make a simple drawing that shows where items are placed.
Cover upProtect your furniture, including mattresses and box springs, with covers designed for the item.
Think verticalMake the best use of your storage area by stacking to the ceiling, working from heaviest items on the bottom to lightest pieces on top.
Don’t over-reachUse a stool to stack and reach items stored above your head.
Optimize your spaceBreak down any furniture that has removable legs, leaves or other parts. Stack chairs seat-to-seat with towels or blankets between them.

Multi-taskUse your refrigerator or other appliances to store things like linens – even books or CDs. Wedge the door of any appliances open so air can circulate inside them.
Take a breathLeave a little space between the walls of your unit and your stored items to allow for ventilation.
Tool upShovels, hoes, rakes, and hoses can be stored together in an empty dustbin. Stack extra cans inside one another.
Be preparedKeep an extra First Aid kit in your storage unit.
