Are you new to renting a self storage unit? Or maybe you already rent a storage unit and need some tips and tricks to better your self storage experience. Either way, this guide can help you get the most out of your unit.
Read on for the ‘dos’ when renting a self storage unit in Adelaide (or anywhere else)!
Do get a self storage unit near you
To start, a good storage unit is one that’s conveniently located near you. If you plan on visiting your storage unit on a regular basis, then choose a storage facility close to your home or work. There’s no point renting a storage unit if it’s an hour across town. Unless you’re using it for something like short-term boat storage in the off season.
Do shop around for a facility
Take some time to shop around and find the best storage facility for your needs. Check out this blog here if you need help finding the right storage provider.

Storage units come in many different sizes. Specifically, at Store UR Stuff we have 4 unit sizes to choose from. Ranging from a 2m x 3m unit up to a 3m x 6m unit. Try our online space calculator if you need help finding the right storage unit size for your needs.
Do pack & store your items properly
Preparing your items for storage is an important step. You don’t want your belongings to become damaged, broken or perish. Make sure you take the time to pack items correctly in storage boxes etc, and ensure you do the same when packing them away in your storage unit. This is especially important if you’re using long-term self storage.
Do create an inventory
Creating an inventory for your self storage unit will help keep track of what’s in your unit and where to find it. Check out this blog here for some tips on how to create an inventory.
