Title: How To Arrange Your Storage Unit Efficiently

How to Arrange Your Storage Unit Efficiently
  • More and more Canadians are choosing self-storage
    services in Toronto to assist with relocating,
    getting organized, reducing clutter in the house,
    or storing belongings for the future.

A Few Tips
  • When it comes to organizing your unit, there are
    a few tips that can help you make the best use of
    your space

Start with Proper Packing
Use one box size for packing most items
  • Using the same size of boxes for all your items,
    will make it much easier to stack and access
  • Most household belongings can fit in medium and
    small-sized boxes.
  • Large boxes can be used to store bulky but light

2. Create a list of contents
  • Note down all the items in each box to create a
    master list that will help you later on when
    looking for a specific item.
  • Even if you pack the items yourself, you are
    unlikely to remember which box contains specific
    items a year later.
  • Make sure to indicate the box number.

3. Label each box
  • Each box should have a clear label indicating the
    nature of items packed within it.
  • Consider using a special mark or label on boxes
    that you are likely to access later on during
  • These items should be put in storage last or near
    the entrance for easy access.

Organizing Items in the Storage Unit
1. Identify the items that you will be accessing
  • Holiday items, such as decorations and costumes.
  • Summer or winter gear and clothing.
  • Trip supplies, including cookout utensils, tents,
    sleeping bags, skis, and snorkeling gear.
  • Tools and hobby supplies.
  • Kids toys.
  • Office documents.

2. Plan the space layout with an aisle
  • Design an organized layout for strategic
    placement of each item.
  • Ideally, furniture pieces are placed against the
    walls to create a path in the middle.
  • Place the most portable items in the middle so
    they can be easily moved to access other areas of
    the unit.

3. Use vertical storage through shelves or
  • Start stacking from the back to the front in
    order of retrieval.
  • Larger and heavier boxes should be put in the
    bottom row.
  • The boxes should not be stacked very high (above
    your head), as this increases the risk of the
    boxes collapsing or falling.
  • Apply the brick-wall pattern when stacking boxes
    of the same size.

4. Place a map of item placement where its
clearly visible
  • After arranging your boxes, you should consider
    preparing a map of the units layout, indicating
    where different items or boxes are placed.
  • Ideally, each box should have a unique number and
    detailed label indicating its contents.
  • So the map should be uncluttered and easy to read
    with just the box numbers and their location in
    the unit.

5. Consider unpacking the boxes
  • Some boxes are hard to label, especially those
    that are filled with anything that fits
    conveniently, so theyre easy to move.
  • But once you take them to your storage unit, it
    might be difficult to retrieve specific items
    later on.
  • So take some time to repack similar items into
    their own boxes, label them, and arrange them in
    your storage unit.

Final Tip
  • If its a hassle to retrieve some items,
    especially if you need to do it often, then it
    might be time to upgrade to a larger storage
  • You should be able to store your items safely,
    with adequate air circulation and off the ground
    to prevent dampness
