Tips for Using Storage in Edmonton

On the face of it, self storage is very simple to use. But if you have never entered the self-storage world before, you may wonder where to begin. Here are some tips on the best ways to use self storage in Edmonton.

Pick the right unit 

You want to have a unit which has plenty of space to store everything you need, but you don’t want excessive amounts of extra space. Equally, if you are using your unit for business purposes, you need to remember to leave room for you. To walk around, to collect stock, to pack deliveries etc.

To find out the right size unit for you, start by making a list of what you need to store. Then, go into the facility and have a look at the units on offer.

Our team at Cinch Storage Edmonton are happy to show you units and have a chat about your best option.

Storage in Edmonton: Have plenty of packing supplies

Make sure that you have plenty of packing supplies ready to go when you have selected your unit. Prepare by bringing boxes, bubble wrap, and tape – this makes the process easier!

If you are using the unit for your business, consider things such as shelving or rails, depending on the type of stock/equipment you have. Have these ready for when you are moving into your unit. 

Label everything

Organisation is key when dealing with self storage. Labelling all your boxes will make life so much easier.

Get into the habit of labelling a box as soon as it is packed with a description of what is in it. 

Plan where everything is going 

Plot out where you want everything to go within your unit. If you are using it after a house move, this could be all kitchen boxes and furniture on the right, followed by bathroom boxes, and so on.

This will, again, make your life a lot easier when it comes to needing something from your boxes and when you empty it. 

Pack carefully for storage in Edmonton

This means to make sure to wrap anything delicate in bubble wrap and place it in high quality boxes.

BUT we would also advise against overfilling or underfilling boxes. Overfilling could lead to damaging the items within but it could also make the box too heavy and dangerous to lift.

Underfilling could cause the box to move around when being transported which, again, could lead to damage.
