When storing your items, space is money! Getting creative with storage can help you to make the best use of your storage space.

For example:

  • Smaller items can go inside dressers, wardrobes or even dryers.
  • Make sure that you have the right box for the job. A large box is great for lighter items like blankets. For books, you will want something smaller that does not get as heavy.
  • Labels are essential. Label all 4 sides of each box so you can quickly determine what is inside.
  • Always use furniture covers to avoid dust damage. 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 as fragile so you do not stack other boxes on top.

Self-storage is a great place to put almost anything from your home, business or dorm. In order to protect our customers, employees and storage facilities, we do have a few exceptions. Our renters are prohibited from storing perishable items, explosive or hazardous materials, live plants and animals. For additional questions, contact us or read more on what not to put in a storage unit.

A climate controlled storage unit will be your best defense against damaging fluctuations in temperature. At Spaces Self Storage, we believe that climate controlled storage is so important that all of our storage units are climate controlled. A climate controlled storage unit maintains a steady temperature of 13–25° using central air conditioning and heat. This insulates your items from the damage that severe hot or cold weather can cause in storage units. When storing pictures, appliances, electronics, leather or wooden furniture, it is important to utilize a climate controlled storage unit. Find a climate controlled storage unit near you!

When you rent with Spaces Self Storage, we do require all goods stored are insured either through us or your own policy. This not only helps to add an additional layer of protection in case of a rare accident, it also helps to give our customers peace of mind. We are happy to provide all of our customers with a free month of insurance covering you up to $20,000. Contact us for more information about insurance for storage units.
