Get The Most Out Of Your Storage Unit

Organized Storage Unit

Sometimes life forces our belongings elsewhere and self storage units are often the safest short or long term option. Storage units for rent are meant to provide space, convenience and security. Since everyone loves saving money, it's important to be organized and to only rent the extra space you need. Below are some tips on how to utilize and maximize the space in your St Albert storage unit.


Visualize your self storage unit before you get there and plan how everything will fit into the storage space. Do you have shelving or dressers you can utilize? Stacking boxes on shelving allows for easier access. It is also very important to store your most frequently used items at the front of the storage unit.


To get the most out of your storage space, it is important to make sure your belongings are packed in a manner to minimize the space they take up. Every single box in your storage unit should be labelled and an inventory kept if you plan on accessing your contents frequently. It's a good idea to label all sides of your boxes for easy identification.

It is also important to use proper packing and moving supplies. At Riel Park RV & Self Storage we sell boxes of various sizes, bubble wrap, packing paper, furniture covers, mattress covers, locks and more. For all your moving and packing supplies, stop by our rental office and ask about our bundle pricing.


If you are storing items that are bulky and can be taken apart, dismantle them prior to arriving at your self storage unit. For example, take the legs off tables, and disassemble bed frames. Dismantling furniture makes it easier to move and stack. You will be surprised at how much space you can save. Always put any hardware in a plastic bag and attach to the furniture so it does not get misplaced.  


To maximize your storage unit rental, look for creative ways to pack instead of putting everything into boxes or plastic containers. Consider filling every suitcase, purse, dresser, nightstand and bags. All this space adds up and helps maximize the space in your St Albert self storage unit.


Don't just utilize the floor space. At Riel Park RV & Self Storage our drive-up units come with ceilings that are 10 1/2' H so make sure you take advantage of this extra height. Bring in portable shelving so you can stack items without worrying that they may topple over.
