How to Organize Your Storage Unit

Whether you’ve just rented a self-storage unit or have had one for a while now, you may be asking yourself, “What’s the best way to organize my storage unit?” No matter the reason for needing a storage unit, it’s hard to access your belongings if there is no organization to your storage. Luckily, it’s fairly easy to keep an organized storage unit. Here are some tips to help you to organize your self-storage unit:

Have an Inventory List

If you put a good bit of your belongings into storage, it can sometimes get difficult to remember everything in your storage unit. Creating an inventory list of everything you have in storage can help you remember what you’re storing. Make a list with categories based on the type of items you’re storing like furniture, books and magazines, electronics, clothes, games, and more. You can even include photos of everything in your unit. 

Label and Store Your Boxes Based on Categories

Once you’ve created an inventory list, be sure to label all your boxes or bins so that you know what items are where. This will make it easier to find what you’re looking for later on. It’s also important to organize your storage unit by the categories you put together on your inventory list.

Put Items You’ll Need More Often in the Front

If you plan on coming and going frequently from your storage unit, it’s always a good idea to keep items you’ll need more often near the front of your storage unit. This will make it easier to access these items. You can also put items that you don’t plan to use very often near the back.

Use Shelving Units or Stack Boxes

Depending on the number of items you plan to store, you might want to consider purchasing shelves to organize your storage unit. Alternatively, you can stack your boxes to create more room in your self-storage. No matter which option you choose, make sure to put the heaviest boxes near the bottom and the lighter boxes on top. This will make it easier to move your boxes and keep things safer for you.
