Get Your Self Storage Organized!

Now that you’ve got your self-storage unit with Firetower Secure Storage, we’re here to give you a few tips on how to organize your things for easy access and an organized space. How much access do you need to the items? Frequent Access – More often than not the items placed on the truck last are the first to come off and therefore funneled to the back. While it is only logical to fill your unit from back to front you should take just a moment to pull things out that you will want frequent access to and set them aside so that you may place them closest to the door. Another great tip is to add shelves in order to make items more accessible while also increasing storage capacity. Infrequent Access – Items that you know you will not need access to frequently, such as furniture and other bulky items should go directly to the back of your unit. There is no need to leave a walkway to these items since you will not need to access them frequently. These items can be stacked as high as the ceiling will allow, keeping the heavy items on the bottom and lighter fragile items on the top. Be sure to leave a small air space between all your items and any boxes. Storing Items Furniture – One of the most popular items to place in self-storage is furniture.  There are a few key things to remember while putting your furniture in self-storage: When storing wood furniture always remember to put a barrier between your wood items such as a cloth,...

Self Storage is the Best Option

It’s September, and you’ve gotten all settled into your new residence hall or apartment. This is such an exciting time as the semester is just getting into full swing! While juggling a ton responsibilities the last thing that should be on your mind is where you’re going to store personal belongings you moved from home that just won’t seem to fit. Look no further, Firetower Secure Storage is here to help! Self Storage is a great option for students who seem to be busting at the seams with items brought from home and other recently acquired things. With 24-hour surveillance cameras, a variety of sizes, and tractor-trailer access Firetower Secure Storage is the perfect option for you – no matter how much or how little you need to store. Safety is also one of the biggest assets to storing with Firetower Secure Storage. Most self-storage facilities only have the drive up option, which can pose a possible security risk, especially if you’re alone and you just need to grab that special blanket grandma made you, or some tools to help a friend.  As the name suggests Firetower Secure Storage offers indoor units that offer security and peace of mind. Security does not just mean alarms, locks, and cameras. It also means security and protection from the elements, too. Inside self-storage offers twice the protection and increased peace of mind. Self-storage probably seems outside the realm of possibilities with so many other expenses that students have to pay. Guess again! Whether you need self-storage until the end of the semester or for the rest of the school year Firetower Secure...
