1. Wrap What You Can: Each time you use a storage unit, wrap what you can in industrial plastic wrap. That way, we know that things are sealed up tight to prevent dust from settling on your belongings, which is inevitable if you plan on using your storage unit long term.
2. Label, Label, Label: Even though you know exactly what you're putting in your storage unit at the time you open it, that doesn't mean in six months when you need back in it that you won't be digging for ages and opening random boxes until you find what you're after. Label everything. The hidden, the obvious, and you can even go as far as to make a checklist that hangs inside the door telling you where something might be, like “back left corner, kid’s soccer equipement.”
3. Tetris Skills: Even the smallest storage unit can hold a great deal, just make sure you use the space wisely which means packing things all the way to the ceiling. Bringing in plywood to lay across several boxes can help stabilize layers as your stacking it up, up and up! It will take the pressure off the tops of your boxes and help keep things safe.
