Many times people just throw everything into their self storage unit. They do not try to plan how everything will fit in there correctly. The funny thing is that they pack their rental truck very neat and tight, but then get it to their self storage unit and it becomes chaos. There are some packing gurus out there, but the key is to take your time and make how you store your belongings make sense. Here are a few tips on storing large garage equipment.
Never store your garage equipment with home furnishings if you are able to prevent it. Most people try to get one large unit and try to fit everything inside of it. You can think about getting one space for your home furnishings and one for garage equipment. This way your home furnishings will not get damaged. Also this could help you when you come back looking for either something from inside the house or from the garage, you know which unit it will be in. Otherwise you will have to sort through everything to find what you are looking for.
Always stay organized, keeping smaller materials sealed. Some self storage facilities are very fickle about what is stored inside the storage unit. If you have paint or some other material that you are not sure about storing, ask the property manager. There is nothing like you beginning to put everything inside your unit and they tell you that you will not be able to store it. Of course if you do not ensure these materials are not sealed properly they could spill out on your other equipment. That would not be something pleasant to walk into one morning.
Large items should be stored in the back, while smaller things should go in the front. Typically you will be coming to your storage unit to use a small item. If you feel that you will use something larger more often, then reverse this idea. Put the smaller items toward the back you will not use, and put the things you will use near the front. This is pretty simple, but not everyone thinks about this before they put things into storage. How you load everything in the moving truck should be the reverse of how it will be stored in the storage unit. This way it will load property and fewer things, if any, will be damaged.
By following the advice above, you allow yourself extra room in case other things need to be stored later on. Most self storage units are about eight feet high so you can always store up as well. You have many combinations you can do inside the storage unit but do not just throw everything inside the storage unit. You can really damage something. When storing your garage equipment put it somewhere inside your storage unit that you can access it when needed and that it will not be in the way.
