Perhaps you are having trouble finding enough space mini storage containers in your garage or you want to downsize to a smaller house or office. In these cases, you might consider renting a mini-storage unit. That’s great! It is very popular. A mini storage facility is available in most American towns. Here are some tips to make the most of your storage unit. These storage tips have been my favorite for many years.
Tip One – Keeping your stuff dry.
Cargo pallets are a great way to keep boxes dry. This doesn’t have anything to do w/ common weather elements like snow or rain, but more so with changing seasons. Concrete floors are more likely to sweat in springtime when the temperature of the air is higher than that of the ground. You can feel the moisture buildup on concrete floors’ surfaces when the air temperature is higher. The increased air circulation will not only allow you to store your items on pallets but also underneath them, which will help keep everything dry. You should also leave enough space between your stored items, and the storage unit walls to allow for air movement.
Tip Two-Keep frequently used items near your entry door.
Keep items you use regularly in storage units closer to the door. To find the right item, you should avoid digging through boxes and climbing up a mountain of stuff. My sons like to borrow my equipment. I love to play golf. I store them in my storage area and have them available for me when I need them. You can grab them and go!
TIP 3: Review your homeowner’s and vehicle insurance policies.
Review your homeowner’s/renter’s insurance policy carefully to ensure that the goods you store in a rental facility are covered. Mini storage facilities typically cover stored items against damage in the case of a natural catastrophe. They will not cover items that are uninsured or damaged by improper handling. Make sure you have insurance to protect your favorite chinaware set and your classic car.
