Simple and Effective Self-Storage Tips (1)

When it comes to proper storage unit function, it all starts with the packing and organizing. At Blanco Self Storage, we strive to make transferring your belongings into your unit a hassle-free transition. As Salinas’ most trusted storage facility, we know how crucial the accessibility of your unit is to getting the best use out of it. To help you accomplish this task, we have compiled a list of some of the most helpful self-storage tips and tricks, beginning with packing:
  • Label several sides of the containers with a room location and short list of what’s inside
  • Try to use stackable containers or boxes when packing up your things
  • Always place more fragile items towards the tops of the boxes to prevent damage
  • Make sure every item being packed is clean, without stains and dirt-free
  • Don’t forget to disassemble your furniture as far as it will go to save space

Organizing Your Unit and Keeping
​It That Way


While getting organized is no small task, you can make your unit an enjoyable place to be with some strategic placement. Some things to keep in mind when organizing your unit include:
  • Make sure to leave a walkway so the rest of your unit is easily accessible
  • Don’t be afraid to use removable shelves to make the best use of space
  • Keep your most-used items near to the front and by the door
  • Most things should be stored on-end to save space (couches, mattresses, large frames, etc.)
