How to Properly Organize your Storage Unit
Now that you have rented a storage unit from Easy Storage in Ogden, Utah we want you to get off on the right foot when it comes to organizing your unit. Rather than just throwing all of your items in your unit you can organize as you go. This will help you to go back and find a particular item with ease. Read the tips below to help you get started.
Create and Organize by Zones
The best way to find what you are looking for as you go back to your storage unit from time to time is by creating zones. You can create zones in a way that works best for you, but we suggest doing it by the room of your house. This way you know exactly where an item is when you need it.
Make a Plan
Before you even start placing your items in your storage unit it might be a good idea to draw a layout. Include the dimensions of your unit along with any shelving that you may use for keeping your smaller items up and out of the way. Map out your zones along with enough room for a walkway to each area of your unit. You can even go as far as labeling and numbering your boxes on the drawing of you layout so you know exactly where each box will be.
Once you have gathered all the items you will be placing in storage you will want to make sure they are properly packed and labeled. We suggest only using plastic bins with sealable lids or thicker moving boxes in order to better protect all of your items. Label each box or container with its contents. Get as detailed as you can in order to save you time when you are looking for that item later.
Maximize the Available Space
To maximize the space, you have available in your unit you will want to enlist in the help of shelving and plan on placing items on top of or inside other items. While doing this, make sure you don’t cause any harm to the items you are storing. Use available space around large furniture items or within the drawers of a dresser.
