  • 11 Storage Tips to Help Maximize Space

    Storage Tips

    • Break down large items such as bed frames, tables, and large furniture. PRO TIPS:┬áKeep all parts (screws and smaller items) together by taping them to the item.
    • Don’t forget to use valuable space inside drawers and larger appliances, such as stoves and refrigerators, to store small items: towels, linens, toys, etc.
    • Wrap furniture legs with protective bubble wrap, furniture covers or pads or blankets to prevent scratching.
    • Label boxes on all sides for easy identification.
    • Make sure fragile boxes are placed on top of heavier, less delicate boxes. Be sure not to over pack boxes as they can get heavy and dangerous.
    • Place frequently accessed items towards the front of your unit. Less frequently needed items should be placed toward the rear of your unit. For larger units, try to leave a small walkway down the middle for easy access.
    • When storing business files, leave a walkway down the center of your unit to make accessing items easier.
    • Boxes that are tightly sealed with packing tape will prevent dust from entering.
    • Use furniture covers, moving pads, or wooden pallets to keep items off of the floor of the unit.
    • Do not store anything flammable (such as paint or other chemicals) or perishable.
    • Drain any fluids prior to storing snow blowers, lawnmowers, and other equipment. Do not store hazardous or combustible materials. Do not store corrosive materials
