Top 4 Self Storage Tips for Newbies

Whether you’re moving to a smaller place or you simply have things you want to keep but don’t want to store in your home, there are options for storage Calgary residents count on. However, you may not know exactly how to go about obtaining self storage Calgary residents rely on for their items or how to pack up your goods.

Use these 4 tips to help you through the process painlessly.

1. Know how long you’ll need the storage unit for. Long term storage options are available, but many companies offer deals for the first six months or one year. If that’s enough time for you, you may be able to save a bundle by choosing one of them.

2. Locate a few self storage facilities near your home. Inquire about different size units and check on monthly rates. Visit the facilities to see what they’re like and how they’re run. This is particularly important if you’re storing valuable items.

3. Get some help on moving day. Moving items into a self storage unit on your own will be nearly impossible, especially if you have to load a dolly and freight elevator.

4. Put the heaviest items near the back. You should also keep items that won’t be damaged in the back so that you can put boxes and other goods on top of them. That way you maximize how much storage space you really have, allowing you to pay a little bit less for a smaller self storage unit.
