Bags or Boxes
Be sure to bring something to carry home what you are taking out of the unit. Depending on what items you are removing, some reusable bags or an empty laundry basket would be helpful.
Check your master list before you go to find out where to look for your items. You won’t want to spend a lot of time rummaging aimlessly through boxes. If you know where the items are, then you will be much more efficient.
Hopefully, you have a master list of items that you have in storage. Be sure to make a note on your master list if you have removed something and taken it home. Updating your master list is important. Similarly, if you add anything to storage, then update your master list.
