4 Great Hacks to Better Storage

Helpful Hints


#1 LOOK UP: Remember that your storage unit is three-dimensional, so make sure you are using its height as well as the floor space. Bring in portable shelves so you can stack things up against the walls without worrying about them toppling over or making it difficult for you to get to the boxes on the bottom of the stack. Similarly, if you have a couch or other long piece of furniture, stack it on end – you’ll be amazed at how little floor space it takes up. #2 BREAK IT DOWN: If you’re planning on storing furniture, always break them down as much as possible. Take the legs off tables and disassemble bed frames. You’ll be shocked at how much space you can save. Massive tables will suddenly be just a few inches thick so you can lean them up against a wall, and they’ll take up just a fraction of the room they did before. Consider bundling the legs so you can keep them in one spot and won’t suddenly find yourself with a three-legged table. Any hardware you use – screws, washers and so forth – should be put in a marked plastic bag and taped or otherwise attached to the furniture. #3 USE UP ALL THE SPACE: You may be surprised by how much space you’re wasting by not utilizing the storage inside items that you store. Are you putting a chest of drawers in a storage unit? Your smaller items can be kept in the drawers. What about an oven or refrigerator? Pots and pans can be safely stored there, too. #4 LABEL EVERYTHING: Every single box in your storage unit should have a label on it. While you’re packing, it’s easy to tell yourself “I’ll reymember that my High School annuals were in the same box with my baby blankets and stuffed animals!” But after a few months or years, it’s highly unlikely you’ll have held on to that piece of trivia.

Helping Hand for the Holidays

Helpful Hints


You can feel crispness of the air and hear the rustling of the leaves, this can only mean one thing.....the holidays are about to begin!!!  Let Got Storage give a helping hand!  There are several different ways that we can make the holidays and family "get togethers" flow with comfort and ease.   1.  Got Storage is a great "hiding place". Come bring all your gifts to your storage unit and let all the gifts be a great surprise.  There's no chance of "sneaky peekers" here!  Even for those extra big gifts we have 14x40s or 14x50s! Last year, one father took advantage of this and hid a brand new truck for his son. Boy was his son surprised! 2.  Got Storage is a great place to assemble your gifts (bikes/toys) so they will be ready, hassle free for Christmas morning!  Parents/Grandparents can sit back and enjoy their holidays with ease and confidence that is one thing checked off their list! What a great feeling during this chaotic time of year. 3.  At Got Storage we love family time.  We know how crowded your house can become with parties and guest spending a few days in your home.  Bring extra furniture or other items to declutter your home to free up space in your house or apartment, so everyone is comfy while they spend time with you and your family. We at Got Storage have a variety of sizes to meet all your storage needs.  Also at Got Storage we bill month to month and prorate when you rent your unit (you will never pay for days you weren't here when you rent a unit)!  This makes it easy and affordable to store with us for the holidays!  Once you discover how convenient it is to have the extra space that you may even decide to stay after the holidays!   ...
