Gotham Mini Storage’s selection of mini storage units allows you to store your items in a compact space for a low price. Just because your unit is small doesn’t mean that you can’t fit a ton of stuff in it, even large items. You can fit way more items than you’d expect by taking advantage of these storage tricks.

Storing Furniture

That dining room table looking too big for your storage unit? Take off the legs, and prop the table against the wall and you’ll be good to go. Items such as mattresses or bed frames are also easy to store. You can simply lay them on the floor of your unit and store other items on top.

Saving Space with Clothes

Whether it is shirts, pants or whatever else, there is a simple trick you can use to pack your clothes more tightly. By rolling your clothes instead of folding them, you’ll find that you save a large amount of space. Of course, there are some items you shouldn’t do this with, but use your discretion. You probably won’t be rolling up your nice suit.

Above, Below and Inside

Even if you can’t remove the legs on your table, as long as it fits, it won’t really be a problem. There is plenty of space on top of and under your table to store things. This also applies to many other items. Got some drawers in a desk? A garbage bin? Make sure to keep an eye open for anything with space that can be filled in.

Whether you have a 4’ x 4’ x 4’ mini storage locker or a spacious 10’ x 20’ unit, these tips are sure to help you save space. Don’t have a unit? Contact us to get started now.
