Maximizing Space in Storage Facilities

Making the most of the space available in your rented self-storage unit is easy with the right advice. At Annacis Lockup, we have all the self-storage space tips you need to ensure you can fit everything you need to into one of our safe, dry and secure storage units. To get started on maximizing your storage space, take a look at some of our helpful tips listed below.

3 Tips For Maximizing Your Storage Facilities Space

1. Have a Plan

This might seem a little obvious at first, but it can really end up making all the difference when the time comes to put things away in your self-storage locker. To start with, make sure you have a solid idea about the size of items you want to store. This can help you plan exactly what items should go where. You should also consider whether or not you will have to take any items out of storage before long. Make sure to pack the storage unit with these items near the door, or in a spot that is easy to find in the future.

2. Labels

If you have a lot of identical boxes and bins stored in your unit, it is always a good idea to make clear labels for each container. You won’t necessarily make any extra space in the storage unit by labelling boxes, but you will save yourself from having to sort through every container when you need to find a certain belonging in the future. That type of organization will save you a lot of time and hassle! 

3. Pack Vertically

One of the best ways to make sure you are maximizing your self-storage space is to place your items in an upright position as often as you can. Stack boxes and bins on top of one another, with heavy items on the bottom. You can also make use of shelves or any bookcases you may be placed into storage by using them to store smaller and lighter items. If the storage unit has a high ceiling, you might want to save some room for a small stool or step ladder to make it easier to pack and reach higher.

When you store your belongings with Annacis Lockup, you can be sure that you are leaving your items in one of New Westminster’s safest and highest quality self-storage facilities. For more information about renting one of our storage units, be sure to contact Annacis Lockup today!
