How to Organize & Optimize Your Storage Space

One of the best ways to make your storage experience convenient and enjoyable is to plan ahead when packing your storage space. 

Here are few helpful tips to consider.

1. Keep a detailed list of all items - You should know exactly which items are going to be stored and keep a list so that you can refer to it whenever you need something. 

2. Consider using protective covering - Depending on the climate you may want to lay down moisture absorbers, a tarp, or other protective fabrics both on the floor and around valuable items.

3. Make sure you you can access items out of reach - Keep a fold-up step ladder in your storage unit so that you can easily and safely reach items that may otherwise be too high. 

4. Know which items you’ll need the most often. - Understanding which items you will use most often allows you to plan ahead and pack those things near the entrance of your storage unit for easy access. 

5. Create an aisle of space to access everything. - Pack things along the walls and leave the middle open or simply leave an aisle of space so that nothing will be out of reach.

Tips on choosing a self-storage facility that’s right for you.

There are several things you need to consider when choosing a self-storage facility. 
Choose a facility that is secure. Facilities with security features can help reduce crime. It’s also important to consider the security of the property overall. Is it well-lit? Is it located in a safe neighborhood? Is there a fence around the property?
Make sure the accessibility hours work for you. It’s important to ensure you will be able to access your belongings at a time that works with your schedule. It’s also important to note the access policy to see if it’s possible to have a family member or friend access your unit if needed.
Consider your needs and budget before beginning your search. It’s helpful to understand what your needs are before beginning your search. For example, if you have a lot of large, valuable furniture that you need stored for a short amount of time it may be worth considering paying extra for a larger space. If you need a place you can access often then you’ll want to prioritize on the location and proximity from your home or work.

Why you should declutter your self-storage unit this holiday season.

Chances are, you’ll be making multiple trips to your storage facility this holiday season.  To save time, it’s important to keep it clean and organized so you can spend more time with your family and less time sorting through boxes and bed frames.  Here are some reasons you may want to reorganize your self-storage unit this holiday season.

Holiday decorations  You’ll find it much easier to retrieve and restore your holiday decorations if you keep your space clean.  It’s likely been a year since you’ve accessed your holiday decor and if your storage unit isn’t clean, it probably means these items have found their way to the bottom of the pile.  Decorating is hard enough, don’t waste your time digging for decor.

Create space for household items  If you plan on being festive this holiday season, you’ll likely need to make room in your home for family and friends.  Declutter your home this holiday season to create space. An organized home helps to reduce stress and clear the mind, just what many of us need before the family arrives for dinner.

Make room for your favorite toys  It may be time to store your RV or boat.  If your storage unit is cluttered, you’ll likely waste a lot of time trying to make room for these larger items.  If you’ve acquired lots of things over the past year, it may be time to upgrade to a larger unit or rent a separate unit altogether.

Can you think of any other reasons to declutter your self storage unit this holiday season?  Let us know in the comments below!

Are you planning on making a move anytime soon?

Get enough supplies - plan on needing extra boxes, tape and bubble wrap. Running out of supplies will only slow your move down. If your move requires dollies and hand trucks make sure they are available. 

Label everything - Make sure to label every box with its contents. This will speed up your unpacking process. 

Plan your move on a weekday when banks, utilities and other offices are open.

Reach out for help - No one enjoys the chore of moving, recruit family and friends to help with the move and make it fun. 

Let us know how the move goes and if you have any tips to share!

Storing in the #Summer:

Moving out of your apartment or dorm for the summer? Self-storage is the perfect solution for this time of year! Keep your things in one place ready to go for your next move. What’s the trick to finding the best spot for your stuff? Here are some starter ideas:

1) What size of unit do you need? - Most students find that a 5x5 unit is ideal for storing everything that won’t fit in the back of your car, but check with our storage experts for your perfect fit.
2) What amenities are useful? - Check out our access hours so you know when you can swing by to drop off or pick up a few boxes!
3) Preparing your stuff - Remember to defrost, clean, and dry your mini fridge. It’s also a great idea to clean your microwave to prevent mold. Never store any food or drink items, no matter how non-perishable!
4) Packing your stuff - Store books in multiple smaller boxes so they don’t get too heavy. 
5) Keep in touch - Keep a business card with our phone number,  your storage unit number, and gate access code. And always call with questions!

Share with your friends to spread the word about storage during the summer!

We have been fortunate to have only moved a few time in 40 years together. With 13 years of collected items in our current home and getting ready to put it on the market, we were looking for a place to store things before we move. A-1 self storage was the answer. This facility is super clean, easy to access and very affordable. The staff made it easy to sign up and provided all the information we needed to get moved in, in under 30 minutes. They are over 90% occupied which unfortunately means there were no large (10' x 25') drive up units available, but the second story 7.5' x 10' and 10' x 10' easily met our needs.

Love this storage place! So helpful and always make sure your items are safe. Alarms go off if your code wasn't used to get in property and your unit is open! Sad to be moving out of the area

Needed a storage unit while in the process of selling our home. Did some quick Yelp searches and happened upon A-1 Self Storage, which was highly rated. My wife and I decided to stop on in and take a look for ourselves. We were very pleased with the facility and the helpfulness of the staff. The lady at the front desk gave us a full rundown of the services that A-1 offers, as well as gave us a tour of the facility. We ended up renting a unit and have been pleased ever since. Very clean and secure. I would highly recommend A-1 Self Storage if you are in need of a storage unit.
