Storage facilities – tips and advice

Once you have selected the storage company you intend to go with, you will then need to think about the size of the storage facility that is the best fit for your needs.  If you feel that you need assistance to help you to decide on the amount of storage space that you require, the managers and staff members at the storage company have lots of experience and will be able to provide you with valuable advice on how to maximize your storage space.

There are a variety of ways to prepare your possessions in order to make putting them into storage both more compact and more economical.  You may already know the kind of things that you want to store, but it does pay to do some additional sorting and go through potentially overlooked areas such as sheds, garages, under the stairs and in cupboards.

You need to make a decision as to whether an item is something you want to keep or can be disposed of by throwing it out as trash, selling it in a garage sale or giving it away to charity.  Once you have done this you can then decide what really needs to be placed in storage.

When it comes time to pack, you should put items into small and clearly labeled boxes.  Having boxes clearly labeled at the beginning of the exercise can result in a lot of effort and time saved later when you want to find a particular item.
