Tips For Organizing Your Rented Storage Unit

Posted on

A problem that a lot of people tend to have is that they are unable to keep their items in their rented storage units as organized as they might like for them to be. While you might think that organization does not matter, you will come to find out that it does, especially when you are in a desperate search for something special that was packed away but is needed now. In order to help keep you and your unit well organized, you might want to take advantage of the following tips.

Organize According To Duct Tape Designs

One of the hardest things people encounter is being able to go back into their unit and locate that one box that has that special something in it. Sure, you might have taken the time to write on your boxes with pen or marker what contents might be in it, such as kitchenware, curtains, or Halloween decorations. The thing is though, over time, that writing might become a little difficult to see. Therefore, you might want to take a look at the specialty duct tape that is now being sold online and in many different stores. You can wrap some holiday duct tape around the box that holds your holiday decorations. If you have a lot of animal print blankets and some of those are stored in boxes, you can wrap those boxes with some animal print duct tape. This way, all you will have to do is glance over at the boxes and you will be able to get a general idea of what is in there. 

Buy Shelving Units

Most rented storage units are nothing more than four metal walls and a concrete floor. This can make it a little difficult to organize the space in a manner that ensures that you are making the most out of the space that you have. In order to help you, you could purchase heavy duty, self-standing shelves that you can place boxes and bags on. Of course, you want to make sure that this is a very sturdy shelving unit because you are most likely not going to be able to attach it to the wall. To help stop the shelving unit from tipping over, you are going to want to place the heavier boxes and bags on the bottom shelves and work your way up with the lighter items. When you are done renting your storage unit, you might find that these shelves work great in your basement or garage.

As you can see, with a little advance planning and some thinking outside of the box, you should have no problem making sure that your rented storage unit is as organized as possible.
