Arlington, Tx is home to the University of Texas at Arlington and to a number of smaller colleges. No need to haul your possessions back to your parents’ house and clutter up their home each year. Hauling your stuff back & forth each year could end up costing more than storing in a secure, self-storage unit. College students usually rent smaller units, like a 5’ x 5’ or a 10’ x 10’ unit, to store their possessions while traveling back and forth to school.
Keeping Your Unit Organized
You need a plan for storing your possessions. You will need to be able to access it, find it and use it when needed. Here are a couple of tips:
- Label the boxes for quick identification of your possessions
- Store the items used the most in the front of the unit
- Leave yourself an aisle to make it easier to get to the boxes in the back
- Standardize the boxes and limit yourself to just two sizes. Put the larger boxes on the bottom and stack the smaller boxes on top.
