Having a storage container can save a lot of space in your home, especially when you’re trying to stage your home for selling.

If you are thinking about renting a storage container, keep these organizing tips in mind in order to make the most of your space!
Organize Your Boxes
When packing up boxes, you may think you’ll remember what’s in each and every one, but over time you may forget. Organize your items into categories and label each box. A great tip is to use clear containers so you can quickly see what’s in each box. Make sure to place the boxes that you want to access most frequently in the front of your storage unit for quick and easy access!
Maximize Storage Space
If you’re storing furniture like bookshelves or bureaus, utilize the space by storing items in the drawers and on the shelves. Just be sure you can still open the drawers in the storage container for easy access to the items inside!
Vacuum Seal Clothing
If you are storing clothing, bedding, or other fabrics, make sure to store them in vacuum sealed bags. This will save space in your storage container and also keep out moisture and insects.
Storing Power Equipment
If you plan on storing power equipment, such as lawn mowers, snow blowers, or power tools, be sure to empty all tanks and remove all batteries. Leaving gas or oil in any equipment can cause rusting and ruin the tanks. When storing batteries, make sure they are disconnected and try to store them with at least a 50% charge.
Create a Storage Container Diagram
Drawing a simple diagram and keeping it inside your unit can save a lot of time when it comes to finding items. Whenever you need to access your belongings, you can refer to the diagram. This may seem a little unnecessary because you think you’ll remember where you store everything, but as time goes by you may forget placement of some things. Having a diagram can save a lot of time when it comes to finding items in a storage container.
