Creative Way to Maximize Your Storage Space


Renting and using a storage unit is a simple process, but there are certainly ways in which renters can often go about the process in a more efficient, space-saving manner. Clever packing and loading techniques can help you get all the belongings you need to move into your storage unit. While stacking boxes is something everyone should do, today Affordable Family Storage will discuss some tips for those willing to get a little more creative to save storage space. Read on to find out more.

Disassemble Your Furniture

If you have furniture that you need to have stored, consider disassembling them before loading them into a moving truck or your storage unit. Remove the legs from tables and you can suddenly save storage space and fit them into smaller spaces. Bookshelves can oftentimes be disassembled with just a few fasteners. Even couches can often have the feet removed to save a bit of space. If you want to make the most of your storage space, every little bit counts!

Vacuum Pack Cloth Items

For items that are not fragile, vacuum packing can be an excellent way to protect them without taking up extra storage space. Cloth items are perfect for vacuum packs. Things like bedding, furniture covers, and even cushions can be vacuum packed. It may take a while to pack all of these, but the storage space you save will be well worth it. It can also make it easier to find where your belongings are when you go to retrieve them.

Remove Unnecessary Packing

If you have ever decided to move CD’s, DVD’s, or video games into storage you may be surprised by the amount of storage space taken up by the boxes these items come in. You can instead invest in a media case that can hold hundreds of these discs at a fraction of the storage space requirement.
