Rent Shelving Units for Your Belongings

When you’re storing your belongings in a self-storage unit, you want everything to be as organized as possible. Large items and big, heavy boxes need to be stored on the floor, with smaller, lighter items stacked on top of them. However, if you have too many small items, the stacks can become unstable and things can fall over. They might not fall when you’re there – they might topple after you’ve closed the unit and gone home. You won’t discover that things have fallen until the next time you visit your unit and find that precious items have broken or been damaged. At EZ Storage®, we want all of your items to be safe and sound, and that’s why we offer shelving units for rent!

Keeping Items Separated

dreamstime_xxl_10792658You might want to keep certain items, such as photo albums or books, separated for easy access. With shelving units, you can dedicate one, two, or several shelves to these boxes and place the shelving units along the wall so you don’t have to wade through your other belongings to get to them. With proper organization and labeling, you can grab the box you need and not spend unnecessary time looking through your belongings to find the right one.

Distributing the Weight

If you have lots of things to store, you want not only to be sure the weight is distributed evenly in each box, but that the weight is distributed evenly when stacking and organizing things. Smaller items can easily be crushed by larger, heavier boxes, so placing them on an upper shelf can help you avoid that risk. If you have smaller boxes that are also heavy, consider placing them on the lower or bottom shelves to provide weight to stabilize the shelving unit. You don’t want the shelves to be top heavy or unevenly laden.

Ideal for Business Storage

At EZ Storage®, we have many business and commercial clients who use our locations on a regular basis. For those who have product inventory to store, shelving units can be a real asset. They can take their pre-labeled boxes and dedicate one or two shelving units to each type so that they can easily find them when they need to restock their store. Shelves can also help pharmaceutical companies keep their samples in order and know exactly where everything is at all times.
