How to find and use a storage unit

Having a storage unit today is becoming as vital as owning a home. We find ourselves with more items to store in small areas rendering the need to rent or own a storage unit.  Finding such space is not hard, most of what it takes is searching online via city or zip code, compare prices, size, and location and reserve it. There are sites online where you can do this in minutes like https://www.storage.com/ and https://www.sparefoot.com/.
Once you have reserved a unit for yourself, it is time to utilize the space by planning what goes or stays entirely. The following are tips to make sure you use your storage unit solely;
Plan the storage method- includes installing shelves and lining the wall for easier packing. Put up everything that goes here to make space for the larger items and those that require containers.
Get the right storage containers. Try to keep any and all delicate items be put in a container to avoid breakages. If you agree with this, get plastic containers of the same shape and size so that you can be able to stack them together safely. Doing this will keep your items safe as well as preserve space in your unit. Make sure to label everything for easier access. A useful hack is lining these containers with things like duvets you are not using to protect the breakables inside. Also, while stacking the containers or packing items into them; be sure to start with the heaviest to avoid damages.
Make use of the remaining space by putting in what is necessary, and that which you cannot part with completely. Items like furniture you have replaced can be disposed of in good ways as you are likely not to use them in the near future.
