When first renting a self storage unit, many people aren’t quite sure how to approach it all.  Sure, they might have some of their things packed up in boxes, but how do they actually go about organizing and sorting them once they have actually traveled to the storage space?  There are many variables present whenever going to visit a new storage facility, so those who are new to the game of self storage might be left in the dark once they get there.  Thankfully, there are a few tips that are going to make your experience much more easier when taking care of your self storage, and many of these tips apply to virtually any self storage rental space.

While it might seem obvious to most, preparation before you actually go to the self storage rental space is going to be the first step when preparing for storage.  Make sure everything is neatly packed in boxes and secured so there won’t be any damage to your property.  While you might not think it is important to label the boxes, think again!  Even though you might remember that your dishes were in one box, and your magazine collection in the other, many people forget what is stored in which box.  This can all be taken care of with effective and simple labeling.  With that in mind, you can easily go to your storage unit and find exactly what you are looking for, instead of having to open and reopen each and every one of your boxes!

While we’re on the topic of boxes, make sure you get the right ones!  The ones you find

in your basement might be adequate for your storage, but they also might be a little bit worn out and might not be able to fully protect all of your material goods that you pack.  There might be small rips in the boxes that could suddenly tear open during transport, or they might not be able to form a tight seal.  If you’re packing goods that are highly sensitive to dust and moisture, it is important to properly seal all of your boxes with packing tape.

Since we’re on the topic of sensitive materials, definitely keep track of what you are including in your storage unit!  I’ve known people to have very rare books and magazines suffer from the tiniest bit of humidity in their storage units, so always ask about climate controlled storage units if you have some highly sensitive goods you are packing.  This can range from books to vintage photographs to antique furniture to vinyl record collections.  If you’re looking to store all of your goods in a safe and clean environment, storage rental units are some of the best places to keep them in, as many units offer climate control, so if you need things cooled down to the right temperature, make it a point to ask for a storage unit with air conditioning.

These are just some of the many important tips when it comes to undertaking your first self storage venture, so make sure that you ask the management of the storage facilities any questions that might affect the goods you are packing and storing, as they will be more than happy to help!
