If you find yourself running out space in your garage, or are considering downsizing to a smaller property or office, then you may be thinking about renting a small storage unit. That’s great! It’s very popular. Nearly every US town has a mini storage unit. There are a few things you can do to get the best out of your storage units. These are storage tips that my family has been using for years, visit us.
Tip One – Keeping your stuff dry.
You can keep your boxes dry by using cargo pallets. This isn’t related to rain or snow but rather the changing seasons. Concrete floors sweat in spring when the atmosphere is warmer than the concrete floor’s surface. The concrete floor will begin to sweat when the temperature rises. By placing the boxes on pallets, you will increase air circulation above and around your stored items. It will also allow everything to dry underneath. To allow for more air movement, make sure you leave some space between the storage units walls and the items.
Tip Two — Keep frequently used items near the front door.
It’s a good idea to store an item you will use frequently in your storage unit. Not only is it dangerous, but it can also be a waste time to go through hundreds of boxes in search of what you need. When you have children who want to borrow everything, such as my sons, golf is something I enjoy. I store my clubs in my storage unit when they aren’t being used. They’re also available near the entrance to the unit for whenever I need them. You can grab ’em now and get going!
Three-Point Tip: Check your homeowner’s and car insurance policies.
Check your renter or homeowner’s policy for details about whether the goods that you keep at a rental property will be covered. Mini storage units typically will provide coverage in the event there is a natural emergency. However, they will not cover damaged items or those that have been damaged through poor handling and packing. You can ensure your chinaware collection and classic car are insured.
