Think Outside the (storage) Box
There are virtually unlimited ways you can store your belongings inside of your storage unit. Our storage facility located in Sandy, Utah has some great tips to help you maximize your space and keep your stored items safe and clean.
Firstly, many people don’t think about the height of their unit. I have people frequently call and ask for the length and width of the storage unit, but fail to ask how tall the ceilings are. This is important for several reasons: if you are storing truck, boat, RV or other piece of large equipment, it’s important to know if the item will fit vertically, especially within the height of the door; secondly, there is a lot of empty space near the top of the unit wasted, that could be utilized with a little careful planning.
Using shelves to store items can help to maximize space and keep your unit more organized. It also helps to keep valuables off the ground.
Use plastic covers for sofas, chairs, furniture and mattresses. This will help to ensure that dust, rodents and insects keep out of this items. It is also helpful to cover your couch and put individual cushions in garbage or some other type of bag. This will further protect your couch.
