Making the Most Out of a Self-Storage Unit

A self-storage unit seems to be the answer to most American household dealing with moving, decluttering or simply storing their extra stuff. Sizes of a self-storage unit may be as small as a walk-in closet or as large as a two car garage. A self-storage unit may be as basic as a garage or a unit that is dust controlled or climate controlled but for most self-storage units it is basically an enclosed unit that has no windows and can be accessed by a roll-up metal door. Unlike a warehouse, only the owner or the one renting the unit can access his stuff and can do so anytime of the day. Thus it is a convenient way of storing items that may only be causing clutter in the house.

To make the most out of a self-storage unit, it is best to start with packing your items and things right. This will protect your items from dust, mildew or damage due to the settling or shifting of items while in storage. It is best to store your items in boxes for easy stacking. Books should be stored lying down to protect the spine and should be stored in smaller boxes for easy lifting. Stuff loose items with fabric to prevent boxes that are stacked above it from settling which may in turn deform the box and damage the items. Furniture like sofas can be stored upright, not only to save space but also to protect it from imprints from heavy boxes. Imprints can no longer be removed on furniture. When storing appliances such as freezers or refrigerators, it is best to leave it open to prevent the growth of mildew which may in turn spread to other items in the units. Use space in these appliances to store smaller items to save space. Wrap furniture in fabric as opposed to plastic to prevent moisture and mildew especially in self-storage units in Lubbock Texas where the weather can range from hot to cold.

If one is renting a self-storage unit in Lubbock Texas, opt for a unit that is climate controlled to protect valuable furniture as well as decorations and furnishing from the weather. Texas is known for its dust which may cause damage to electronic items in storages as well as furniture so look for self-storage units in Lubbock Texas that offers a dust controlled environment as well. Most self-storage units have their own security but it is best to protect your own property by investing in durable locks for your self-storage unit.

Although renting a self-storage unit an alternative to most household simplifying your life may be a lost lasting solution in dealing with clutter. Try to sort through things before storing them in boxes and determine if you can live with or without it. More often than not you can so opt to donate your extra items to charity or host a garage sale to get rid of some of your stuff. Renting a self-storage unit in Lubbock Texas should be your last alternative when lack of closet space is your only reason of renting a unit.
