Moving into a storage unit in Mountain View isn’t the same as cramming your things in a closet. For starters, you want to avoid wasting space as much as possible. Use uniformly sized boxes to protect your goods and help you pack your unit in the most organized and efficient manner. Store lightweight items near the back of the unit and heavier items near the front, and plan around the amount of access you need to your unit and the belongings in storage. Keep a list and descriptions of all belongings in storage. Ask your insurance company and storage facility about insurance coverage for your stored belongings.
