Moving expenses add up quickly, especially with the cost of your new home! Here’s how to make the most out of your storage unit and make your move more affordable with some of our tips and tricks.
Choosing the Right Size Unit
Knowing the perfect size unit for your needs to avoid empty room or worse – not enough space – is essential. We want to help you avoid overpaying for unneeded space and make sure that your items fit perfectly. It’s common not to know how many square feet you need, so let’s go over the basics and review our size guide here! Our unit sizes range from 5’ by 5’ to larger than 10’ by 30’. Each unit is typically 8 feet tall, optimized for stacking your items.
Keeping your unit organized can immediately maximize your unit! Utilizing boxes aids in keeping everything in its place. We recommend stacking boxes from heaviest on bottom to the lightest on top, as well as least-used items in the back to frequently accessed items towards the front.
The easiest way to ensure a simple, seamless move? Downsizing! Not only will you have fewer items to transport, you can also sell unwanted items for money to use elsewhere in this process. Donating items is also an amazing way to give back to your community while helping simplify your move at the same time. The leftover items that you wish to keep can be stored in your unit. As an added benefit, it will be easier to unpack once you are in your new home.
