Common Storage Unit Mistakes To Avoid

Self-storage units are a great way to preserve precious or antique belongings, make some extra space in your home, store items that aren’t of immediate use, or downsize after a big move. Transferring your items into storage requires preparation and care. If you moved your belongings into a storage unit without much thought, you may end up damaging them. Here are some common storage unit mistakes to avoid so you can keep your items safe and secure during the moving process.

Choosing The Wrong Unit

Storage units come in a number of sizes and have a number of different features to suit various needs. Before moving your belongings into a storage unit, it’s important to choose the unit that best satisfies your needs. For example, delicate items should be stored in temperature-controlled units to best protect against damage. Make sure you choose a unit that can fit all of your belongings so you don’t potentially damage your belongings by trying to squeeze them into a space that’s too small to accommodate them.

Placing Items In a Random Order

Carefully organizing the items in your storage unit as you’re moving them in will save you a lot of aggravation in the long run. If you just put all of your belongings into your storage unit randomly, you may have a hard time finding individual items later. Not only is it irritating to have to search through your entire storage unit to find a single item, you may also damage your other belongings in the process. By carefully organizing your storage unit in the beginning, you’ll make it much easier for you to locate and retrieve items later.

With the right preparation, it’s easy to move your belongings into a storage unit seamlessly and conveniently.  At Migson Public Storage, we have a variety of different storage units to suit your needs. We offer secure locking units, on-site staff and security surveillance to ensure that your belongings are safe.
