3 Tips to Optimize Your Use of Summer and Winter Storage
Convenient Vancouver Storage Units for Short- or Long-Term
In a city like Vancouver which has the highest real estate prices in Canada, many people need short- or long-term storage. Space is at a premium in apartments, and lots of people have very little closet space or other storage space that comes with their home.
There are some things you can do to optimize your use of storage units. We’re going to give you hints about that here.
1. Think hard about what you’re putting into storage.
You would be amazed at how many people save things for years only to get rid of them eventually. Do you really need everything that’s going into storage? Storage pricing is based on the unit volume, so, smaller units are cheaper than larger units. If at all possible, give away, sell, or recycle what you can live without.
2. Change units if needed.
You may need a different size unit in either the winter or the summer. Maybe you store a lot of winter gear and sports equipment during the summer months. Or maybe you store a lot of summer gear during the winter months. If your use of space is significantly different, then you can change to a bigger or smaller unit for six months of the year. There’s no reason to pay for what you won’t use.
3. Use space efficiently.
Sometimes a simple shelving unit can make your use of space much more efficient. Costco has some units that are about $100 and hold hundreds of pounds on each shelf.
