We see all kinds of renters at Custom Self Storage, and we also see their storage mistakes. Let us help you to avoid these common pitfalls that we see many renters make.

Being disorganized is the number one mistake we see in our storage units. People without a plan often just toss anything and everything into their storage unit. Do not do this. Take your time, use the proper boxes, label everything and keep an inventory list of everything you have inside your storage unit. You will be better off in the long run as your storage unit fills up. Knowing where exactly everything is will save you a lot of time.

Different items need different storage conditions, whether it is climate control, type of boxes, or the way things are packed. By keeping things organized and packed properly, you can ensure that your items will be protected. We recommend using plastic storage boxes for the ultimate protection and stackability. What’s the point of paying for storage if all your items are broken?
