1. Pallets: Keeping your items off the floor is almost essential. There's no way to promise that the runoff won't come under the door, or the adjacent unit won't have a spill.
2. Wrap What You Can : wrap what you can in industrial plastic wrap. That way, you know that things are sealed up tight and it won't collect dust or insects while it's doing time.
3. Use A Hefty Small Lock: Find an all-weather pad lock that has a short arm, preferably the smallest round security lock available.
4. Label: Even though you know exactly what you're putting in your storage unit at the time you open it, that doesn't mean in 6 months that you won't be digging for ages and opening random boxes until you find what you're after. Label everything. The hidden, the obvious, and you can even go as far as to make a checklist that hangs inside the door telling you where something might be.
5. Plan For Temperature Changes: there are a few things that don't like the cold or the heat and should either be double wrapped or well insulated or not stored at all. Electronics, vinyl records, old photos (if humid), things of that nature all come out a little less awesome when not stored properly.
6. Protect The Space: While we're concerned about protecting what we put in the unit, protecting the unit itself is also important — owners ask that you leave the space as clean and undamaged as you find it. Also notify the owner of any needed repairs.
7. Bust Out Your Tetris Skills: Even the smallest storage unit can hold a great deal, just make sure you use the space wisely which means packing things all the way to the ceiling. Bringing in plywood to lay across several boxes can help stabilize layers as your stacking it up! It will take the pressure off the tops of your boxes and help keep things safe.
