5 Tips on How to Organize Your Storage

Whether you are in the process of a big move, need long term storage, or just need to store some extra items short-term. Century Storage has the space you need and the service you deserve. Here’s five tips on how to organize your storage unit for frequent use.

  1. First secure your storage space at your local Century Storage. Stop by your local Century Storage and take a look at our facility and spaces we have available. We have plenty of sizes to fit all your storage needs.
  2. Choose one size box for your packable items. This will allow you to easily organize and stack your boxes without wasting space. Century Storage has small and medium boxes that will fit your packing needs. Small and medium size boxes tend to become less heavy than large boxes and will be easier to move around when accessing items in your storage space.
  3. Place large, heavy items towards the back of your storage space. Items like furniture and appliances take up more space and take time to move around. Placing these items towards the back of your storage space allows you to get in and out of your unit quickly, without having to move large heavy items around.
  4. Identify which items you use the most. What items are you going to need access to from your unit? Decide ahead of time what items you know you will need often. Put these items towards the front of your unit for easy access.
  5. Lastly, don’t forget to label your boxes! Labeling boxes will cut the time out spent opening boxes to see what is inside. Label your boxes as you pack them up
