Many first time renters and even some long time renters make the mistake of taking the boxes and stuff that they have to put into their London, Ontario self storage unit and simply moving it all in to the unit. As long as it all fits when the door is shut that is ok right? For some people that may work if they don’t need to get anything out of storage again, but for most people that philosophy would not work. You have to maintain and organize your self storage unit so that when you need to find something it is available.
Here are a few helpful hints in organizing and maintaining your self storage unit.
The organization of your London self storage unit really starts before you even move your boxes into the unit itself. When you are packing you should try to get boxes that are the same size. There may be items that require larger boxes, but it the majority of the boxes are the same size they will be easier to stack. You also want to make sure that you have plenty of packing tape, bubble wrap for those more delicate items as well as a permanent marker of some kind.
As items are packed you should label the boxes so that you can see what is in the boxes without digging through every box. You should also use the marker to make sure that you distinguish the boxes that have breakable items in them as fragile and that you mark the boxes that are heavy so that when you go to pick that box up you are prepared for something heavy.
When you actually get your boxes and stuff over to your London self storage facility you don’t want to just load all of the boxes in you want to go about it in an organized manner. The items that you will probably not ever going to need can be placed in the back of the self storage unit. The items that you may need to get to can go in next, and the items that you know you will need eventually should be closest to the door.
It can also help to keep all of the boxes that belong together in the same area. for example if you have four boxes of Christmas decorations you want to stack them in the same area so you don’t have to look all over the storage unit for them. Also make sure that the boxes that are labeled fragile are not stacked at the bottom of your London self storage unit.
Perhaps one of the most important tips is that after to have your self storage unit set up in an organized fashion maintain it that way. If you need to get something out of a box and let’s say you have to move a few boxes to get there then make sure that you put the boxes back where they were so that everything is stacked up and organized again.
It is possible to set up your self storage unit and maintain it so that it is well organized. It does take some hard work but it will be worth it when you have no trouble finding your stuff. You can be a successful self storage renter.
