Maximizing Storage Space: 6 Tricks to Try

Storage unitsMoving is always a hassle. There are moving companies in Utah that can help you with the work. More often than not, these movers also offer storage services. To make the most out of the space that you have here is a simple list to help you.

Storage tips and tricks

1. List and labels

Your things will be stored (and stacked). Knowing which boxes contain which items would come in handy should you need to take out these things at one point. Label the boxes and keep a list of the things your boxes contain. This will serve as your inventory list as well as your guide.

2. Wrap them well

Wrap your things well. Use an industrial plastic wrap to prevent water, dust and other particles from entering. Remember, you would put your things in these storage facilities for some time, best keep them clean and secure.

3. Keep them in boxes

Storing them in boxes is one of the best ways to maximize space. Always fill your boxes up. Keep the light ones in a bigger box and use them as a base and put heavier ones in small boxes for easier stacking.

4. Pallets

Pallets protect your storage units from water and ice seeping in and reaching your things. Keeping your things elevated off the floor protects them from the changes in the season as well as other events like leaks and flooding.

5. Protect inside out

Use quality locks to ensure your belongings are protected. While the place is likely under surveillance, it will not hurt to be careful. Protect your belongings on the inside with the help of wraps, proper positioning, and ventilation. Changing seasons outside can contribute to how your things and appliances cope (and age) on the inside.

6. Maps

Navigate your way through easily by having a map of your storage area. This will make it easier for you to locate things that you would need to take in the future.

Moving, packing, and storing is never an easy experience, but with practical tips and tricks, it won’t be as stressful as it seems to be.
