Whether you are planning a big move or just doing some spring-cleaning, reserving a storage unit can be very beneficial. It not only frees up valuable space in your home, it also allows you to organize your items in a safe place until needed. Knowing these three things before renting a storage unit will ensure you reap all the benefits.

Storage Unit Tips

Before reserving one, research all the type of storage units available. Remember that no two storage facilities are the exact same even within the same company. There are vast differences between storage units in security measures, cleanliness, temperature control, customer service, and availability of moving trucks and packing materials. The different types of storage units we offer are mobile storage units, self storage, climate controlled storage, and RV storage.

Climate controlled storage will protect your things from the hot central PA weather. The constant changes in temperature and humidity are the main culprits when it comes to damaging wooden furniture, fabrics, and other items. To protect your items from the extreme temperature changes that are prevalent in Pennsylvania, consider using climate controlled storage which utilizes air conditioning and heating units that keep a more consistent climate in the building that what you will find outdoors.

Careful planning saves you money, space and stress. Because storage units come in a variety of sizes, you will want to make sure you utilize all the space you are given. Be sure to dismantle all tables, bed, and other large items. Try to leave a center aisle, which will create easy access to your goods. Wrap large items like sofas and mattresses in plastic and stack these items. You will also want to keep your glasses and dishes safe with plastic packing wrap. Make sure to pack the larger boxes on the bottom and in back getting smaller and you move up and forward in the unit.
