Step 1 – Catalog, Label And Inventory Storage Contents
Create an inventory catalog that records the number of each box or item, identifies which room its associated with, the contents of the box, the size of the box and whether its contents are fragile. Clearly label each box with a preprinted label that has your last name and box number on it or use a black felt-tip marker instead. Use the marker or brightly colored label to make it easy to identify “FRAGILE” contents. Make sure the labels and identification markings are made on the side of any boxes (in addition to the top of the box) that makes it easy to identify box contents when stacked.
Step 2 – Disassemble Equipment, Furniture, Shelving and Other Items
Space is at a premium and it’s important to make the most efficient use of it. Break down items that can be readily disassembled such as bed frames, couches, desks, shelving, tables and chairs.
Step 3 – Create Rows And Utilize Perimeter Walls
Place your items along exterior walls and use them to support your boxes and freestanding belongings. Create rows of boxes from the exterior walls inward toward the center of the room. Leave sufficient space between rows to be able to get to each item. Be sure to face the labels towards the row aisles so you can read them.
Step 4 – Create A Stable Base To Stack Boxes
It should go without saying, but use the heavier boxes to create a stackable foundation for lighter boxes, placing the most fragile content boxes on the top.
Step 5 – Keep Appliance Doors Slightly Open
Keeping appliance doors open slightly will help prevent stale air and the build up of mold.
Step 6 – Use Padding To Wrap Mirrors, Picture Frame And Artwork
Prevent breakage by using padding along with plastic wrap to create a tight barrier that can absorb minor impacts during the moving process
Step 7 – Leave The Most Frequently Accessed Items In Front
If you plan on retrieving certain belongings or supplies on a regular or infrequent basis, place those items near the front of the door. Plan ahead when moving in so that it’s easy to identify and position these items in front without the need for a lot of rearrangement.
Step 1 – Mark Off Two 5’x10’ Areas As Templates
Measure two ‘5x10’ areas next directly connected to each other. Doing so will provide both a 5’x10’ and a 10’x20’ area. Use masking tape or painters tape to define the perimeters. These will serve as templates for judging the size unit you’ll need.
Step 2 – Pack Up And Place Into The Taped Areas
Gather everything you want to put into storage including your furniture, boxes, equipment, tools and equipment. Move everything you plan on storing into the taped areas. Stack items as you plan to inside the storage unit taking a ceiling into consideration.

Urbanization and Downsizing’s Impact Upon Self Storage In Westchester
Urbanization has been growing in Westchester, as it has in many places all over the country.
In many ways Westchester now resembles more of an urban area more than a suburban one. For many long-time county residents, downsizing provides the only viable option to remaining in Westchester through their retirement years.
Others find Manhattan too expensive or prefer the escape from the city.
For many people this translates to smaller living accommodations. Many residences are following trend of becoming smaller and smaller as a greater number of people now reside in more densely populated geographic areas, such as the metro NYC area.
A greater number people want to have their property kept somewhere safe and secure outside of their residence. As a result, the number of people who need storage outside of the home has increased.
