If you have a self-storage unit, you are probably anxious to start tossing your boxes in there and getting them out of your home. But, before you do, consider the following storage unit mistakes. You want to make sure you are avoiding these mistakes at all costs, as they will end up costing you in the long run.
Mistake #1: Forgetting about a climate controlled unit.
Did you know that some items are sensitive to temperatures? If you have forgotten to consider a climate controlled unit, you may be in for a surprise when you open your storage door and find your furniture warped or your electronics damaged.
It is important that you evaluate the items you are storing and then decide whether or not a climate controlled unit is right for you.
Mistake #2: Choosing to throw unlabeled boxes into your unit.
One of the worst things you can do is take a bunch of unlabeled boxes and just throw them into your unit. First, you will be creating clutter and you will make it impossible to get to your items. Secondly, you will never know where to look for items when you need them. An unlabeled box means you will have to sift through it just to identify what is inside.
