How to Organize Your Storage Unit
Once you find the perfect storage unit, you have to figure out how to effectively organize all of your items inside of it. A neat and well-organized storage unit will make it easier to retrieve items in the future and will prevent anything from breaking or suffering damage. Here are a few tips to help you organize your storage unit.
Unify Your Packing
When packing your items to go into storage, try to use boxes that are similar in size. The closer your boxes are in size, the easier it will be for you to stack them in your storage unit. Try to keep each box roughly the same weight as well. If all of your boxes are a unified size and weight, they’ll be less likely to crumble or fall on top of one another in storage.
Use Your Furniture
Big pieces of furniture such as couches, desks and dressers can take up a lot of space in your storage unit. However, these items can be manipulated to save you space and make your storage unit as accessible as possible. Dismantling your furniture is a great way to create some extra space in your storage unit. Taking off the legs of your table or couch helps these furniture pieces to lay flat. Remember to keep all of the screws used to assemble the legs in a special place so you can easily reassemble the piece whenever you decide to take it out of storage. Desk and dresser drawers can be emptied and used as extra storage space as well.
