Getting the Most out of your Storage Unit

Congratulations! You have made the decision to rent a storage unit at Millcreek Self Storage in Salt Lake. Now that you have your unit you can begin filling it with all the items you just can’t seem to find the space for in your home. In order to help you in getting the most out of your storage unit, we have gathered some tips you can use as you begin to fill up your unit.

Invest in some Pallets

The best way to ensure the safety and quality of all the items you place in your storage unit is by keeping them up off the floor. The best and easiest way to do this is by picking up some pallets and placing them in your unit. You will find that they come in handy when it comes to storing a larger amount of your furniture and boxes that you want to protect from any potential spill hazards.

Lock it Up

While some storage facilities come with locks available on their units, it is a good idea to bring a second lock of your own. This will deter any curiosity from your unit while giving you the peace of mind you need knowing that your valuables are safely locked away.

Label Everything

As you are packing up your belongings to place in storage you need to remember the most important step, labeling everything. You will want to label a couple sides of the box or container you are placing your items in for ease of visibility. Be as specific as possible when you are listing the items each box contains. This will save you a lot of time and hassle if you ever need to go back and retrieve a particular item from your storage unit.

Wrap it Up

An easy trick to try when it comes to giving your boxes and containers an added level of protection against unwanted pests, is to wrap them with industrial sized plastic wrap. If any unwanted even should happen within your storage unit you can rest easy knowing your plastic wrap can help in the protection of your items.
