Tips for Organizing Your Storage Unit

Storage units in Toronto Ontario

There's no better way to clear up some clutter in your home or business than with storage rental in Toronto. By renting one or more storage units you'll have peace of mind knowing that your belongings are safe and you'll be able to access your items whenever you need them. To get the most benefit out of your Toronto storage units, you'll want to make sure that they are well-organized. The self-storage pros at Speedy Self Storage have put together some helpful tips that you can use for organizing a storage unit.

- Label everything

Proper labelling is the key to organizing any storage unit. You might think that you'll remember exactly what you put in which box but, once it's all packed away, that's likely not going to be the case. You don't want to have to open several boxes before finding the one you need. Save yourself the hassle and clearly label the contents of every box, preferably on more than just one side.

- Choose easily stackable boxes

Another simple way to keep your Toronto storage unit organized is by choosing easily stackable boxes in a few uniform sizes. If you try to pack everything into random boxes sourced from your basement or garage, then you could find yourself playing a losing game of Tetris when you try to pack everything away inside of the unit. Plus, boxes that don't stack well will be more prone to falling over.

- Take larger items apart

A good rule of thumb when using storage rental in Toronto to store larger items such as beds or tables is to disassemble those items. You'll be able to save space and your belongings will be less likely to sustain damage. Just make sure that you keep all of the pieces together for easy reassembly.

- Create a centre pathway

When your boxes and items are all ready to be put in storage, try not to just pack them in as tightly as possible. Leaving a centre aisle can provide much-needed convenience if you later realize that you need to access some of your belongings. If you don't have enough space to do this, then consider renting a larger or a second storage unit.

- Leave items you may need closer to the front

If you'll be putting items into your Toronto storage units that you know you will need access to once in a while, then try to leave those items closer to the front. You don't want to have to go digging through your entire unit just to reach one item that you left all the way in the back.
