10 Expert Tips for Organizing Your Self-Storage Unit Like a Pro

Self-storage units are a fantastic solution for decluttering your home, storing seasonal items, or keeping valuable belongings safe during a move. However, it’s essential to organize your storage space efficiently to make the most of it. In this blog post, we’ll share ten expert tips to help you organize your self-storage unit like a pro, ensuring that your items remain easily accessible and in excellent condition.

Plan Before You Store

Before you start moving items into your storage unit, create a plan. Make a list of everything you’ll store, and consider how often you might need to access specific items. This will help you determine where to place them within the unit for easy retrieval.

Choose the Right Storage Supplies

Invest in high-quality storage boxes, bins, and packing materials. Clear plastic containers are excellent because you can see the contents without opening them. Don’t forget to label everything clearly.

Maximize Vertical Space

Utilize vertical space by placing taller items at the back of the unit and stacking boxes or bins on sturdy shelving units. This prevents wasted space and makes it easier to find what you need.

Create Aisle Space

Leave narrow aisles between your storage items. This way, you won’t have to shuffle everything around to access something at the back of the unit.

Use Furniture Blankets and Covers

Cover furniture, electronics, and delicate items with furniture blankets or protective covers to prevent dust and damage. This extra layer of protection can be a lifesaver, especially for longer-term storage.

Prioritize Accessibility

Place items you might need frequently towards the front of the unit. Seasonal decorations, sporting equipment, or important documents should be easily accessible without moving everything around.

Consider Climate Control

If you’re storing sensitive items like electronics, artwork, or antiques, consider a climate-controlled storage unit. Maintaining a consistent temperature and humidity level helps preserve your belongings.

Create Sections or Zones

Divide your storage unit into sections or zones based on categories. For example, have a section for holiday decorations, one for household items, and another for sporting equipment. This makes it easier to locate specific items.

Use Pallets or Elevated Flooring

Elevating your belongings slightly off the ground using pallets or specially designed elevated flooring can protect against moisture and pests. It’s particularly useful for long-term storage.

Regularly Check and Reorganize

Don’t forget about your storage unit once it’s packed. Periodically visit and reorganize, especially if you’ve added or removed items. This ensures your storage space remains efficient and well-organized.


Organizing your self-storage unit effectively can save you time, money, and stress in the long run. Whether you’re using it for short-term or long-term storage, following these expert tips will help you maximize your storage space, keep your belongings in great condition, and make accessing your items a breeze. So, get started on your storage organization project today, and enjoy the peace of mind that comes with a well-organized storage unit!

Fall Is Coming

Sigh, fall is coming. August is a great time to prepare, prep and make a plan for fall storage. If your yard is not ideal for storage of your summer gear, and your garage is full, consider stopping by for a tour. Rent a unit, so you may use your spaces at home for the designated use (ahem, the garage is for storing vehicles, ha). In conclusion, self-storage is a great option for seasonal storage.We look forward to assisting you!

What Type of Lock Should I Buy?

When renting with Somersworth Storage, you will find we highly suggest our customers consider using a lock style sometimes referred to as “disc” or “circular”.

They are also great for overlocking sheds, campers and other storage containers that may be used on business or residential property. Our office shop is open when we’re here!

Temperature Controlled Vs. Climate Controlled

If you asked a self-storage owner 40 years ago about temperature or climate control, they likely would have looked at you like you had dropped in from the future. First-generation owners/operators had the same model, which typically consisted of metal buildings with roll-up doors. People didn’t necessarily worry about the luxury of heating or air conditioning. 

As self-storage evolved, so did the terms associated with the industry with regards to whether there was any type of heating or cooling associated with the facility. “I think in the past, the term ‘temperature controlled’ was used in many cold weather climates and pertained to whether the facility had heat,” says Norm Shore, vice president of operations for The William Warren Group in Santa Monica, Calif.

In the modern world, some self-storage operators sometimes use the terms “temperature controlled” and “climate controlled” interchangeably. As the industry has evolved, standardization of the terms hasn’t really been established. “I think when you hear the terms today, it really depends on what part of the country you’re in as to what it may mean,” says Shore. “Some people say ‘temperature controlled’ when there is heating and cooling, and some call it ‘climate controlled,’ especially where there is some type of humidity control.” 

The Self Storage Association also defines climate controlled as also controlling the humidity and adds that only an HVAC system equipped with a dehumidifier can provide true climate control. 

Somersworth Storage LLC offers climate controlled self-storage, with special HVAC equipment to maintain humidity at approximately 55%.
