Living In A Condo? 4 Tips On How To Efficiently Use Your Storage Locker

21st century living frequently means living in crowded urban areas in large residential buildings full of condos and apartments. Most new condos, especially if you are an owner, come with a dedicated storage space in the underground area of the building for all the things that won’t fit in your condo. If you just moved in, or are looking to reorganize an existing storage locker, below are 4 tips to help you do that.

Heavy Items At The Front

If you are about to begin organizing or organizing your storage locker, keep in mind that you should always have your heaviest items at the front. If you eventually need one of them, not having to navigate them around smaller, more fragile items will save you effort and also, potentially, damaging your other belongings in the locker.

Valuable Items At The Back

If you are storing anything in your storage locker that you would be devastated if you lost (family treasure, something you spent a lot of money on), it’s a good idea to put it in the back. Storage facilities will usually advise you to do this if you are a first time user, but having valuables near the back makes it less tempting for thieves because the longer they spend trying to extract something from a unit, the more likely the security cameras are going to catch them in the act.

Seasonal Items

One of the best ways to use your condo’s storage locker is as a seasonal storage unit. This means that anytime there is a change of season and, consequently, a change in the kind of clothing and apparel you are going to be needing, you can simply put the previous season’s gear in the storage locker and free up space in your condo for the things you will use on a daily basis.

Unknowns

Whether you are using storage facilities off-site or your condo’s storage locker, many people utilize these kinds of spaces for keeping things that they just haven’t had the time to consider if they truly need or not. If you don’t have the time to decide whether something is truly useful to you, a storage locker can keep it on layaway until you’ve had the time to decide if it’s something you should donate/sell/get rid of, or not.

If your condo’s storage locker is full to the brim and you still need more space, you can always look for additional storage space in your local storage facilities. If you are just moving into a new condo, or have been wanting to re-organize your current condo’s locker for some time, keep the above organizational tips in mind and get the most out of your condo’s dedicated storage space.
