Understanding Your Storage Needs

Before diving into the specifics of the storage units themselves, it’s essential to take stock of what exactly you need to store. Are you storing furniture, seasonal clothing, sports equipment, or documents? Understanding the nature of your items will help you determine the type of storage unit that best suits your needs. For example, Appletree Storage locations offer both drive-up and temperature-controlled storage options. Additionally, consider how often you’ll need access to your stored belongings. This will influence factors such as unit location within the facility and ease of accessibility.

Choosing the Right Storage Unit Size

One common mistake people make when renting storage units is either overestimating or underestimating the space they need. Appletree Storage offers a variety of unit sizes to accommodate different needs, from small lockers to spacious units capable of storing the contents of an entire home. To estimate the size you need, take inventory of your items and visualize how they would fit into various unit sizes. Keep in mind any future storage needs to avoid renting a unit that’s too small. Use our handy storage calculator to get a quick size recommendation.

Organization Techniques for Small Spaces

Maximizing space isn’t just about finding the right-sized unit; it’s also about how you organize it. Utilize shelving, stackable containers, and vertical space to make the most of your storage unit. Consider storing in clear plastic bins for easy visibility of your items, and don’t forget to label everything. Categorizing your belongings will not only help you find them quickly but also prevent clutter from accumulating over time. See more storage and packing tips!
