Extra space is great, if you need to move around in your unit and access things frequently leaving additional room is usually the wisest, but for most people getting the smallest unit possible based on price works the best. We have a variety of storage unit sizes at our two storage facilities; find a Spaces Self Storage near you to view available units and current storage unit specials.
Get creative! Smaller items can go inside dressers, wardrobes or even dryers. Make sure to use the full height of the unit to better utilize the space available in the unit.
Put your bulky, heavy items in the back. Keep the smaller ones you may need to access later at the front.
If you are going to need to be in there, make sure to leave yourself a path.
Movers are there to make your life easier, but give them directions. Make sure they know where things are going in the unit. Mark your boxes so movers know if they need to be on top and if they need to be in front as you may want to access them later.
Couch Tip: If it can stand on its end, it can save you space!

Make sure that you have the right box for the job. A 4 cubic foot is great for lighter items like blankets, but for books you will want something smaller that does not get as heavy
Labels are essential! Grab a marker so you know where to put things once you are done. So you can even mark what time with us.
Covers to avoid dust. Make sure your mattresses and couches have a cover on them so they don’t get dirty during your move. Treat your fragile items with care! Keep them separate and mark them so you do not stack things on top.
