At West Side Storage & Truck Rental in Cincinnati, OH we know that moving can be a stressful ordeal. There’s a lot to consider: whether to hire movers, packing, and how or where to store your belongings throughout the process. We want to make it as easy as possible for you while you're loading and unloading your belongings, so here are some tips to get the most out of your self-storage facility.
- Size: Before even loading in, it’s important to make sure that your storage unit is the right size for all of your belongings. It’s always better to have too much space than too little, especially if you think you may need to store additional items in the future. Be sure to talk with your property manager about the space you require so they can help identify the right storage unit for you.
- Plan: Don’t just throw all your belongings into boxes and stuff them in your storage unit. Before packing, sit down and come up with a game plan. Figure out what you want to pack in each box and write it down. Also, think about where you want each box to be located inside your storage unit; place boxes containing items you may need in the near future closer to the front.
- Load: When it comes time to load all of your belongings into your storage unit, stick to the game plan you’ve already written up, and think smart. Try to clearly label everything, and create a pathway between boxes that allows you easy access. Also, move larger/heavier items to the back, especially if you’re less likely to need them in the near future.
These are just a few ways to maximize your storage space. For more helpful tips, contact the experts from West Side Storage & Truck Rental today at (513) 451-6474 or visit us online.
