Storage Tips

At HomeTown Storage of Ellisville, we want to ensure that your belongings are stored safely and efficiently. To help you make the most of your storage unit, we've compiled some valuable storage tips. Follow these guidelines to maximize space utilization and maintain the condition of your items.

  1. Plan and Organize: Before moving your belongings into storage, create a plan. Take inventory of your items and categorize them. This will help you determine the appropriate storage unit size and ensure easy access to your items when needed.
  2. Proper Packaging: Use sturdy boxes and packing materials to protect your belongings during storage. Label each box clearly for easy identification. Disassemble furniture when possible to save space and cover it with protective sheets.
  3. Utilize Vertical Space: Make the most of your storage unit's vertical space by stacking boxes and furniture vertically. Place heavier items at the bottom and fragile items on top. Use shelves or racks to maximize space utilization.
  4. Leave an Aisle: When placing items in your storage unit, leave a small aisle in the middle. This allows you to access items at the back without having to move everything in front.
  5. Protect Furniture: Cover furniture with blankets, sheets, or furniture covers to prevent dust accumulation and scratches. Avoid placing heavy items on top of upholstered furniture.
  6. Consider Climate Control: If you're storing sensitive items like electronics, artwork, or wooden furniture, consider renting a climate-controlled storage unit. This helps protect your belongings from extreme temperatures and humidity.
  7. Secure Belongings: Keep your storage unit secure by using a sturdy lock. Avoid using low-quality locks that can be easily tampered with. Additionally, consider purchasing storage insurance for added peace of mind.
  8. Regular Maintenance: Visit your storage unit periodically to ensure everything is in order. Check for any signs of pests or leaks and address them immediately. This helps maintain a clean and secure storage environment.
  9. Create an Inventory List: Keep a detailed inventory list of the items stored in your unit. This will help you keep track of your belongings and assist with insurance claims if necessary.
  10. Update Contact Information: If your contact information changes, remember to update it with the storage facility. This ensures that you receive important notifications and communications regarding your storage unit.
