A Space To Place - We'll help you find the perfect fit!

Surprisingly, there is more to having a self-storage unit than loading up your stuff and packing it into the space you've rented. Using the storage space effectively is key to making sure you get the most out of what you pay for.

Planning the Move

Prepare belongings and items for the big move from home/office to storage unit by making sure you have the necessary moving supplies. When you rent from A Space to Place, we have a variety of supplies such as boxes, packing peanuts, bubble wrap and tape, so you can grab those after you sign the paperwork for your unit.
If possible, try to use the same size box for most of your belongings, to make it easier to stack them in the truck, and then again in your storage unit. Remember to label each box, and try to keep all boxes from the same room together.
As you move boxes into the moving truck, pack the items you need the most frequent access to first, packing bulky or infrequently used items last. This way, when you unpack your moving truck, you can unpack the bulky, infrequently used items first so they are located in the back of the storage unit.
 

Choosing the right Storage Unit

First, determine what you plan to store so you know how much space you'll need. You may not need as much space as you think, since you can utilize the vertical space in the unit as well. Also, knowing how an item has to be stored will help you figure out how much space you need; items like mattresses and sofas cannot be stored standing up on their ends, because it can cause damage. Knowing how an item has to be stored will help you figure out how much space you need. A Space to Place has climate controlled units which protects temperature-sensitive items from damage.
