Three Expert Tips for Storing Outdoor Equipment  

1. Know How Much Space You Need

 

The first step to selecting a storage unit is to figure out exactly how much space you need. This can be a challenging process for first time storage renters. Determining how much storage space is required is not an intuitive process. In fact, far more stuff fits into a storage unit than most people realize. This is especially true with proper planning and organization. To select the right sized unit, the best thing you can do is to create a list of what you want to store. Then, you should get that list into the hands of one of our experienced storage managers. Our team can help review your list and find the perfect spot for you.

 

2. Use Labelled Boxes

 

Anything that can fit in a box should be stored in a box. The bottom line is that small and mid-sized items need to be put into boxes or bins for their own protection When these items are kept out in the open, they risk becoming lost or damaged. Additionally, by using boxes, you will be able to keep your unit well organized. As a last point, you need to make sure that you label all of your boxes. By doing this, you will be able to know what is inside a box without actually opening it. This will save you a lot of time in the long run.

 

3. Keep an Inventory List

 

Finally, you should always keep an updated inventory list of all of the items that are currently within your unit. Ideally, your list should also direct you to the precise location of each item. Do not assume that you will be able to remember what is in your unit. As time passess, remembering each thing becomes far more difficult than it initially seems.
