  • Plan ahead. Place items you may need to get to often in the front of your space. Allow for walkways if you'll need periodic access to items.
  •  Make an inventory of your stored items and keep it in a safe place at home, or in a safe deposit box.
  • For easy stacking, use uniform size boxes. Be sure they're strong enough to hold 20-30 pounds.
  • List contents on all four sides of the box. Number the boxes and seal them with cello tape, fiber tape, or glued paper tape. Use inventory sheets to track the boxes.
  • Wrap dishes and glasses in plain paper and pack them in sturdy boxes. Set these boxes on top of the others.
  • Drawers in dressers and tables can be used to store knickknacks and other small items. Wrap them in towels, tablecloths or blankets to prevent breakage.
  • Blankets, towels, tablecloths and clothing can be packed inside large appliances. Place blankets, sheets, or plastic on top of the stored items.
  • To save floor space, sofas and loveseats can be stored on end. Wrap cushions in plastic and stack them on top of the sofa.
  • If you stand mattresses on their sides, prop them up so they stand straight. Otherwise, they may bend out of shape and become lumpy. Pack them in mattress cartons or plastic to prevent damage.
  • NEVER store anything toxic or combustible. Drain gasoline from lawnmowers, power tools, boats, jet skis, snowmobiles, etc.
  • Be sure to place a good lock on your storage space.

5x5 Approximately the size of a small walk-in closet, a 5'x 5' space is ideal for storing small pieces of furniture, boxes, and miscellaneous small items. 5x10 A 5'x10' space is about the size of a large walk-in closet and can contain, for example, a couch and a chair, bedroom set and small items and boxes.
A 10' x 10' space is about the size of a small bedroom and will hold the furniture (excluding appliances) from a one-bedroom apartment.
A 10' x 15' space could hold the contents of a two bedroom apartment, or a small car, if the unit has a garage door.
A 10' x 20' unit is about the size of a standard one-car garage. It's big enough for a car or truck, furniture, appliances, and personal items from a two bedroom house.
A 10' x 30' unit could hold the contents of a three-bedroom house, or provide vehicle storage with plenty of storage space left over for the contents of one or two small bedrooms.
