4 Self-Storage Tips and Tricks From the Experts

Self-storage is an excellent solution for those who need a place to store their extra belongings, but it can be a challenge to make the most of your limited storage space. That's why the experts at ACE Storage in Bowling Green, KY, have put together these tips and tricks to help you maximize the potential of your storage unit.


Take Inventory of What You Store

Before you start packing, it's important to take inventory of what you're storing. Make a list of each item and its location in your unit. That way, if you need to retrieve something, you'll know exactly where to look. In conjunction with our space estimator tool, taking inventory early on can also help you determine what size storage unit you might need.


Clearly Label Your Boxes

Once you’ve packed your items into boxes, make sure to clearly label them. While this may seem time-consuming and unnecessary, we assure you that doing so now will be extremely helpful when you need to sort through your belongings in the future. The more detailed your labels are, the better, so don’t be afraid to note contents, mark dates, and even utilize color-coded labels.


Pack Your Unit Strategically

To get the maximum value out of our self-storage facility in Bowling Green, keep the following in mind:

  • Place heavier items at the bottom and lighter items on top. This will make moving them easier, and prevent the bottom items from getting crushed.

  • Items you use most frequently should go at the front of your unit for easy access. Items you don’t use often, such as seasonal decorations, can safely be stored in the back.

  • If you feel like you need more space, just ask! We offer everything from 5x10 storage units to 10x30 storage units to fit all of your belongings.


Don't Share Your Key or Access Code

At ACE Storage in Bowling Green, we make every effort to ensure your belongings are as safe and secure as possible. You can do your part by making sure you only share your key or access code with highly trusted individuals.

Following these four tips can help you make the most out of your self-storage experience at ACE Storage in Bowling Green. Contact us today to get started!
