Use The Interior Of Your Appliances
Are you storing any washers, dryers, ovens, dishwashers, or refrigerators? If so, then you might want to make use of the interior of those appliances. By storing some things inside of the appliances, you will not only free up a lot of room in the unit, but you will have an extra amount of protection for those things. For example, you can store trophies, pictures, jewelry, vases, artwork, or just about anything that is small enough to fit and that you would be worried about it breaking elsewhere. Even if something in the storage unit fell over onto the oven, everything inside of it will be well protected.
Line The Walls With Free Standing Shelves
It is important to make sure that you are giving yourself plenty of space to store the smaller boxes or the things that simply will not properly fit into a box. Having a few shelving options will make that a much easier task. Just make sure that you are steering clear of the thin plastic shelving units, as they can easily break with too much weight. It is best to stick with a metal unit, as it will hold the most weight and you do not have to worry about any warping of the shelves should the unit suddenly have an increase in humidity levels.
As you can see, there are plenty of ways to make sure that you are able to keep your stuff nice and organized while it has to stay in a self storage unit.
