Thankfully, Vault Storage Co is here with some helpful tips to make this transition more bearable . Read more below to learn of some common storage mistakes you should avoid when looking at a summer storage unit!

Choosing the Wrong Sized Storage Unit

There is nothing more frustrating than running out of storage space mid move. Don’t let this happen to you – choose the right size storage unit from the beginning. Additionally, overpacking your unit can cause damage to your items, and can make organization a chore. Use Vault Storage Co’s storage calculator today to determine how much space you will need.

Using Damaged or Unfit Packing Materials

Don’t skimp out on packing materials. Damaged boxes risk collapsing and damaging your goods. Similarly, make sure to wrap any larger items in bubble-wrap, or utilize blankets to avoid scratches. In a recent article, Collegescoops.com elaborates on the importance of using uniform packing material. Similarly sized boxes can easily be stacked to make use of your storage unit’s vertical space. Additionally, using similarly sized boxes allows for proper organization.

Declining Storage Insurance or a Protection Plan

As a college student it might be tempting to forego a storage unit protection plan. Still, in the event of any damage the storage facility is not held responsible. Pay the extra fee and enjoy the peace of mind knowing that your storage unit is protected by a comprehensive protection plan.
