How To Use Mini Storage Units

If you’re searching out for the place where you can keep your unused items, you must know about the storage unit. Once you have sorted your things out and decluttered your house, you may still have enough items that you want to stow away. Whether you need to temporarily store your belongings while moving or while downsizing your apartment, renting the best storage unit provides an excellent option to keep your things safe and secured.

Storage units are of many sizes, depending on the size of items that you need to store. Here we will specifically be talking about mini storage units. At My Storage, small storage units are of two sizes:

  1. 5’x5′ Units : 5×5 is the size of a small walk-in closet; these storage units are ideal for personal items, clothes, boxes, etc.

  2. 5’x10′ Units : 5’x10′ units can store small amounts of furniture, sofas, chairs, plus other small items and boxes.
Here is a mini list of things that you can store in your mini storage unit:
  1. Instruments : Small Musical instruments like guitar often require special storage conditions, so they don’t get damaged. If they are no longer a valuable item for you, prefer storing them in a storage unit.

  2. Small Furniture : Small furniture like table, chair, pouffe etc., is one of the most common items in storage units. When placing any furniture in storage, consider disassembling the larger pieces to save space. All furniture items should be clean and 100% dry to prevent the growth of mold.

  3. Clothes and shoes : You can store away your unused shoes and clothes. Prefer keeping out-of-season cloth there. It will save up a lot of space in your closet, and you can also fill them up with some new ones.

  4. Large household appliances : Kitchen stoves, dishwasher, mini-fridge, washing machines are a few items you can easily store in your mini storage area. You can keep them as long as you can, but make sure to do the servicing timely to avoid any damages.

  5. Files and documents : Instead of piling your documents or throwing them in the trash, keep them safe in storage units. You can keep your unimportant things as long as you can and can use them whenever you need them. So, instead of destroying them, rent a mini storage unit.

When used sensibly and wisely, a self-storage unit can provide you with a great storage solution. For professional guidance, connect with our team at My Storage.
