A mini-storage unit could be a good option if your garage has become overcrowded or if you need to downsize. That’s great! That’s great! In almost every American city, you can easily find mini storage. Some storage tips will allow you to make the best use of your space. For many years, I’ve found them to be very useful, read here.
Tip One – Keeping your stuff dry.
Pallets can keep your boxes dry. Not rain or even snow can cause this problem. Concrete floors sweat when air temperatures are higher than those of the soil. Concrete floors can feel the humidity build up if air is hot. If you stack your boxes onto pallets, air can circulate more freely not only over and around them but also underneath. This will help to keep the items dry. Air circulation can be increased by keeping a few inches between the walls of storage areas and stored items.
Two Tips Store items commonly used in the area near your entryway.
When storing something that will be used frequently, store it near the storage unit’s entry. You are wasting your time and risking injury by doing this. When your kids want to borrow all my equipment, I can’t leave them at home. The clubs I keep in the storage box are near to where my entrance is. Simply grab and go!
Fourth Tip: Review your vehicle and home insurance.
To determine whether the goods in your storage unit will be covered, you should check with your landlord and homeowner insurance policies. Many mini-storage units offer protection for your goods in the rare event of a catastrophe. The facility will not pay for damages caused by items left unattended or incorrectly packaged. You can protect antique chinaware and cars with insurance.
