Feeling good about a storage unit you rent can come with a few extra concerns when it's going to be a smaller unit than you're used to working with. Instead of struggling to have room for all your things in the storage unit, there's a lot you can do to make sure that the storage unit is used wisely and that it's not too full where it makes accessing your belongings difficult.
Get Everything Packed in Advance
Packing up all your items should be done carefully in order to make sure that everything isn't taking up any more room than necessary once stored. From checking whether some items can be compressed, such as clothing or blankets, to seeing if you could use hard boxes that can be stacked, you can make sure that your items are packed in a way that helps everything take up less space in the storage unit.
Once you begin packing all your things, you may also find that you don't need nearly as much space for everything to be kept neat.
Figure Out the Order to Store Everything
Making sure that all your belongings are packed neatly can be a lot easier when you figure out an order for everything to go into the storage unit. Large items and things that you won't be using regularly should go in the back of the storage unit, while smaller items can be kept in front where they won't make the space as crowded.
With the right order to keep everything organized in the storage unit, you won't be frustrated by making your items difficult to access.
Keep an Inventory of the Storage Unit
Knowing exactly what is going into your storage unit can be a lot easier when you keep an active inventory and are careful to keep track of exactly what is going in or out. It can be easy to lose sight of what's in the storage unit and end up with it being difficult to manage, even with a mini-storage unit that will be limited in size.
Being careful to plan for how you'll be using your storage unit is so important when you're eager to rent a smaller unit and don't want it to be difficult to access. Being careful to organize the storage unit with the above tips can help you manage the space better and feel good about how it's laid out.
