Tip One – Keeping your stuff dry.

Cargo pallets are an excellent way to dry boxes. This has nothing to do with common weather elements like rain or snow, but is more affected by the changing seasons. Concrete floors are more susceptible to sweating in spring when the temperature of the air is higher than the ground. Higher temperatures can cause concrete floors to sweat more easily. The increased air circulation will allow you not only to store your items on shelves but also under them. This will keep everything dry. For air movement to take place, make sure you leave enough space between the walls and the items.

Tip Two – Keep common items near your entrance door.

Store items you use often in storage units that are closer to your door. You don’t want to dig through boxes or climb up mountains of stuff to find the right item. My sons enjoy borrowing my equipment. I love to golf. They are kept in my storage room and always available to me for when I need them. You can grab them from your storage area and take them with you wherever you go.

Tip Three – Review your homeowner and vehicle insurance policies.

Check your homeowner’s or renter’s policy to make sure that you are protected for the goods you keep in a rental property. Mini storage units usually cover items in case of natural disasters. They won’t cover items that aren’t insured or damaged by improper handling. To protect your chinaware collection and your classic car, make sure you have insurance.
