Getting the Right-Sized Space for Your Stuff — Self Storage in Randolph

self storage norwell maIf there’s one thing people tend to have a lot of, it’s stuff. Stuff in the attic, stuff in the basement, stuff in the garage — sometimes it can feel like there’s nothing but stuff in every square inch of your home.

The excess of stuff is one of the reasons that people wind up getting a self-storage closet. Most people know that they should sort through and get rid of a lot of things that have been hanging around for years, but most people don’t have the time or the energy, and often there’s simply too much sentimental value involved.

When the time comes to get a closet, one of the first questions is a simple one: how big? The size depends on a lot of factors, and what you’re hoping to achieve by getting a closet.

If you’re just looking to reduce the clutter or clear a space in the garage, then a smaller closet (5×5 or 5×10) is probably sufficient. If you’re seeking a complete purge, then you’re going to need something a little heftier (10×30).

Of course, you’ll want to think about what you’re going to store and how you’re going to store it, and how much access you’re going to need to the items you’re storing. If you’re fine with storing everything from back to front and top to bottom (not recommended, by the way) then you won’t need as much space as you will if you want to leave a nice access path to everything in your closet.

Choosing the Right Size Storage Unit at Walk In Closet Self Storage in Randolph

self storage norwell interiorYou don’t want to pay for space you don’t need, and we don’t want you to either! That’s why we offer storage closets in many different sizes so you can choose the one that best fits your needs. Refer to this guide to determine how much you can fit in each size unit. And if you need help choosing the right one, contact our storage experts who are always happy to help.

5’ x 5’

Think of this like a small storage closet. It’s idea for files, holiday decorations, out-of-season clothing, or small pieces of furniture.

5’ x 10’

A unit of this size is comparable to a walk-in closet. This is perfect for storing one or two rooms of furniture, like a sofa, a chair, a dresser, and a mattress set. This unit will hold everything you can fit into a pick-up truck.

10’ x 10’

This unit is about the same size as a small bedroom. If you pack it efficiently, it can hold all of the items in a one-bedroom apartment. If you can fit it in a 14-foot moving truck, you can fit it in this unit.

10’ x 15′

This unit should hold the contents of a two-bedroom apartment, minus appliances, or equipment and files from a small office space. This equates to a 20-foot moving truck.

10’ x 20’

This unit is the size of a one-car garage. You could use it to hold the furniture from a two or three bedroom apartment, including appliances and boxes. It also could hold equipment, files, and inventory from an office space. If you can fit it in a 24- to 26-foot moving truck, it will fit in this unit.

10’ x 30’

This unit is the size of a large garage and is the largest unit we offer. It will hold seven rooms of furniture, or all the items that will fit in a 26-foot moving truck or larger.

Of course, these estimates can be affected by how efficiently you pack your belongings. We’ll provide tips in a later post!

Protecting Items in Your Storage Unit from Theft

self storage norwell maThere are all sorts of storage units out there. Some of them have been around for a while and are little more than a metal box subject to the ravages of time, nature, and the elements. Some are brand-new and top of the line, with climate control, 24-hour security, and keycard access. And some are in between, with some of the bells and whistle but not all.

Irrespective of what kind of storage unit you have, one major concern is theft. If someone knows or suspects that you have something of value in your unit, they might find a way in.

While Walk in Closet is a safe, state-of-the-art storage facility, with video surveillance to help provide the highest level of security, here are a few safety tips to help keep your valuables safe no matter where you choose to store your belongings.

Intentional mislabeling. If you mark your cardboard boxes according to content or by household location, consider putting your most valuable items in a box and deciding on an innocuous label — “kitchen” or “bathroom,” for example. Tell everyone who needs to know where the valuables are what the box says, and keep the information safe.

Boxes in boxes. If someone breaks into your unit, they’re going to try and get in and out as quickly as possible, so make it as challenging as possible to get to your valuables. Put them in boxes that are inside boxes that are inside boxes and place them at the back of the unit so it’s a real job to get to them. Thieves won’t spend the time digging, especially when the items are that well-hidden.

Check in. If thieves are hanging around watching for activity in a unit, then give them some. Stop by periodically and make it clear that the items weren’t placed in the storage unit and left there — someone is checking in on the unit. Thieves will be more likely to hit a unit that’s less likely to have an owner show up.

Invest in a good lock. A flimsy lock on your unit is a huge red flag for thieves who know they can break it easily. Spend the extra money and get a solid metal lock that’s going to make anyone thinking about breaking in think twice.

Another great way to prevent theft when storing your things is to make sure that you choose the right storage facility. Call 781-885-3965 or contact us via email to learn more about how Walk In Closet can help keep your possessions and valuables safe.

Is Climate-Controlled Self Storage Necessary?

ClimateControlledStorageWhether you’re using a storage unit to hold your furniture and clothing temporarily during a move or to indefinitely keep papers, seasonal decorations, or other things you can’t bear to part with, the things in your storage unit are important and should be protected. When choosing a storage unit, many people don’t consider the way the climate can wreak havoc on their things.

In New England, we are lucky enough to enjoy the changing of the seasons. But with the softly falling snow can come brutally cold temperatures and with the beautiful summer beach days can come high humidity levels. Cold temperatures can make the items in your storage unit brittle and prone to breakage while high humidity levels can quickly damage papers, photos, and electronics. If you are storing things in a storage unit for more than a week, climate control is important.

A climate-controlled storage unit will maintain a constant temperature and humidity level, which will protect your belongings. Further, climate-controlled units have to be part of a larger building, which also protects stored items from water damage and insect infestation.

Not everyone needs climate control, but if you’re planning on storing delicate items for a long period of time, it’s the best way to protect your important belongings.
