Reserve your Storage Unit early. This does not entail any commitment, but will assist in making a unit available when you need it and so avoid last minute disappointment.
Inspect your storage unit and make a list of packing accessories which you will need. Commonly used packing aids include such items as newspaper or wrapping paper, bubble wrap, taped polyurethane sheeting, cartons and plastic or cardboard boxes.
Do not place items hard up against the wall - leaving air spaces around the unit’s perimeter will aid ventilation. Try to allow a walkway to the rear of the unit and use all spaces available including its height. Place frequently used or needed items convenient to the floor.
