Self Storage Tips

What To Do

When you need some extra storage for your belongings, whether you’re in the middle of a move, downsizing or just needing some extra space, a storage unit is a great and safe way to store your belongings. You drop in to grab an item or two and safely lock up the rest, simple right? As storage units seldom come equipped with storage bins and shelves, it is no secret that finding those items can be a trying task. To help you store your items safely and make them accessible when you need them, here are a few self-storage tips to follow for safe and convenient storage.
Before deciding on a storage unit, do some research to help you determine which company is best to work with. Are they located nearby? Is there 24-hour access? Do they have the space I need? Ask yourself these questions before determining which company is the best fit. At “B” Secure Self Storage, we can answer these questions for you, YES!

When you pack your things to go in storage, try to think ahead of items you might need later on and pack accordingly. For example, if storing camping gear and/or winter clothes, store these items in a secured tote or adequately sized box for safe keeping and place near the front of the storage unit. When the winter season hits and you go to retrieve your camping gear or winter clothes, not only will your items be safe from debris, they will be near the front of the unit for easy access.
This is one thing most forget…what’s in the box! If you label your boxes, it will make finding certain items a lot easier! Writing on the boxes directly is best as tape or stickers may lose the ability to stay stuck.
Avoid storing perishable foods or plants. Food can spoil and leave a lingering foul odor and plants can attract bugs or rodents. Try to store only canned food and non-perishables items.
