Best Way to Store Things During New Home Build

When building a new home, it can often be difficult to find suitable storage solutions during the construction process. To ensure that items are kept safe and secure throughout the build, it is often easiest, safest, and most convenient to store the items in a storage unit.

Work with a Moving Company and Rent a Storage Unit

Renting a storage unit is one of the most popular methods for keeping items safe during a new home build. Storage units are available in a variety of sizes, so you can easily find the right size for your needs and budget. Be sure to check with your local storage facility for availability and any discounts they may offer on long-term rentals.

Working with a moving company can help get your items into storage easily They can come in and pack your belongings, store them at their facility, and then deliver them when the new home build is complete. At Gardener Moving, we offer quality storage units, and our experienced team can pick up your items and transport them directly to our storage facility to ensure the process is easy and convenient for you!

What Can I Fit in My Storage Unit?

At Gardner Moving, our self-storage units are available in small, medium, and large sizes. Our smaller-sized units range from 5×5 to 5×15. The smaller size can accommodate a mattress set or set of garden tools, whereas the larger of the two can accommodate the contents of a bedroom, such as a furniture, a few medium boxes, a TV, and a stand.

Medium size units are around the size of half of a standard one-car garage and go up to the size of a full one-car garage. Measurements range from 10×10 to 10×20. These units are great for larger items like living room and dining room sets. If you have two or three rooms worth of stuff or larger items, this is a great size.

Our larger-sized units are 10×25 or 10×30, which can accommodate a furnished three-bedroom home or a 3-5 bedroom home plus some boxes. This size unit is great for a new build because it can accommodate all of your household items and furniture until you are ready to furnish your new home.

The Best Way to Organize a Storage Unit

When it comes to preparing your items for storage, we recommend you use medium-sized boxes that are stackable. Label each box with the room name or assign a number to each room and label them, keeping track of these labels in a master contents list. Long-term storage needs can be met with shelving in the storage unit. This helps to save space, protect fragile items that can’t be stacked, and keeps your unit organized.

You should also create a map of your storage unit that you can keep in the unit to reference as needed. We recommend breaking the unit into four quadrants with all boxes listed clearly.
