Storage Unit for Back to School
It’s back to school time, and if you’re a college student, you’re probably realizing you have more stuff than can fit in your shared dorm room, especially with your summer and winter wardrobe combined. Rather than leaving your things behind or sending them back home to your parents, store your belongings in a storage unit where you can access them all semester long. U-Lock-It storage, located in Madison near the University of Alabama, provides dollies, hand carts, and ramps for your convenience to move into our storage units. Here're a few tips to keep in mind this semester as you utilize your storage unit.
Clean Your Belongings
The last thing you want to discover when you reopen your storage unit is a nasty smell or mold growing on your belongings. Wash all your clothes and bedding before and after storing them, clean any dishes or microwaves or refrigerators before and after storing, and don’t store anything like food that will expire.
To make the extracting process easier, label every box with a marker. If you have multiple boxes of a certain item like clothes or shoes, group similar boxes together. The easier it is to locate what you need, the less time you have to waste out of your day.
Pack Small Boxes
Rather than packing multiple types of things into one box or having boxes too big to carry, separate your belongings into manageable portions that can be easily carried and moved into your dorm at a later time.
Choose a Good Lock
Even a high-security storage unit can be broken into. To keep your belongings safe, decide on the best lock for your storage unit. If you have any questions about what kind of lock to get, U-Lock-It Storage offers a variety of locks to choose from.
Remember your Storage Unit Code
You only want to keep robbers out of your storage unit, not yourself. To make sure you can access your storage unit at all hours of the day, write down the code to get into the gate. Otherwise, you’ll have to wait until business hours for assistance. Keep the code in your wallet as well as in your phone to always have it near you.
