As summer approaches, university students in the Houston area are gearing up for the transition between campus life and summer activities. The last thing students need during the stress of finals is the uncertainty of where to keep belongings during the summer break. If you are graduating, you may not yet know where you will head. If your summer accommodations are far from your college, it may be more convenient to store your belongings locally. In the interim, renting a Katy self storage unit is an economical and hassle-free way to resolve the problem. There are a few factors to consider as you begin to move.
Evaluate Your Storage Needs
The professionals at a Katy self storage location can help you determine the size of unit that best suits your needs. In addition, by reviewing your belongings, the team can help you decide whether a climate controlled unit will better protect your goods. Are there important documents, electronic equipment, books or other items that can be affected by heat and humidity? A climate controlled Katy mini storage unit may be advisable.
If your belongings are typical of most college students, you may have a bed, mattress, clothing, a small refrigerator, books, kitchen utensils, cooking equipment and furniture.
By organizing your belongings and packing them efficiently, a small unit should be sufficient. Smaller units cost less. If you need extra space or would like to have your goods accessible during the storage period, a larger unit may be better.
Pack Your Belongings
Efficient packing will consolidate your goods into the smallest volume possible. Storing items in furniture drawers, plastic storage boxes and tubs consolidates space. Wardrobe boxes allow clothing to be hung, which keeps wearables in good condition. The bottoms of wardrobe boxes can be used to store shoes, backpacks or other goods. Be sure to label boxes for easy finding.
