Tips for an Optimal Short-Term Storage Experience

Select the Appropriate Unit Size

To avoid spending extra money on used space or dealing with the hassle of an overcrowded unit, it’s important to do your research to pick the right storage unit size. Evaluate the size and volume of the items you intend to store, ensuring there’s enough room for easy movement within the unit. Our handy storage calculator can help kickstart your decision by offering a recommended size range. Remember to consider additional factors such as shelving needs or frequent access when choosing your unit.

Master the Art of Packing

Efficient packing can make it significantly easier to store and retrieve items. Collect uniform-sized boxes and label them for quick reference. Keep a detailed inventory list to track the contents of each box. Dismantle bulky furniture into smaller, more manageable parts—both for organizing and heavy lifting purposes. To prevent any damage from moisture, ensure that all items are clean, dry, and elevated off the floor. Starting with proper packing can save you a lot of trouble in the long run.

Plan Your Space

Ensure that items you need to access frequently are stored near the entrance, while valuables or long-term storage items are tucked away safely toward the back. Organize your belongings in neat rows, leaving pathways for easy access and rearrangement. Having a layout plan can help you utilize every inch of the storage space efficiently.

Secure Your Belongings

Ensure the safety of your possessions by securely locking up your unit and using covers or tarps to protect the contents inside. For fragile items, especially when stacked, consider using additional protective materials like bubble wrap. Feel free to visit our office in Beach Park, IL, to stock up on packing and protective supplies.

Choose a Convenient Location

Select a storage facility that complements your daily routine, whether it’s closer to your residence or along your daily commute. Check the facility’s access hours to ensure they align with your schedule. While choosing your storage unit, keep in mind that units located on the ground floor or near an elevator can offer additional convenience, especially if you anticipate frequent visits to your storage unit.
