Tips to make the most of your self-storage space in Redlands

There are many reasons individuals in Redlands, CA, need additional storage space. For example, home renovations, an adult child who moves back home, business paperwork, or old furnishings and memorabilia you just can’t bear to part with, can all lead community members to search for a convenient and safe self-storage facility. At Vines Storage, our units vary in size and our leasing agreements are flexible enough for every situation. Additionally, we have experts on staff who can help you every step of the way. Below, we offer several tips to help our clients make the most of their storage facility.

  1. Decide what you’re keeping, where. Take some time to inventory your home. Make piles of things you can throw away, donate, and keep. From the items you are keeping, decide what you need to keep at home and what can be stored at another location.
  2. Determine what size unit you need. Your client representative can help determine how much space you’ll need for your furniture and boxes.
  3. Do you need amenities? Some storage units offer great amenities like extra security with gate access codes, cameras, and on-site staff. Others are simply a unit that’s kept secure with a padlock. It’s important to consider how valuable your belongings are when making your decision.
  4. Determine how long you’ll need the space. Perhaps you’re only looking for a short-term rental while you’re between moves. Or, maybe you need something for an entire year, or indefinitely. Make sure that the space is going to be available for the entire time you need it.
  5. Reserve the unit. In many cases, you can reserve a unit over the phone. However, some individuals will feel more comfortable if they see it in person.
  6. Move your stuff. Once the unit is officially rented, start bringing your belongings. You can find many helpful tips for how to place your items in order to maximize your space.
  7. Don’t forget about it. Many people store their items and then forget about them until it’s time to move them again. While in many cases this is fine, in some instances it’s important to check on your belongings, especially if there is anything that might degrade or deteriorate with time.
