Helpful Storage Space Tips:

  • Allow space for aisles so you can easily access your belongings without having to re-arrange the space
  • The more efficiently you pack, the less storage space you’ll need and the less you’ll pay
  • Label your boxes and keep a master list of what’s in which box
  • Place items you may need most frequently near the front of the unit
  • Allow Air Space around the perimeter for ventilation
  • Instead of placing boxes directly on the concrete, place them on pallets or paper pad to prevent moisture absorption
