Storage Snapshots: Photography Equipment

When I launched my photography business, I knew that I needed more space than I had at home. That's when I decided to rent a local storage unit to keep my studio gear organized. I spent a lot of time researching backdrops, staging, racks, and storage tips to keep all of my gear organized and protected when I wasn't shooting. With so many photographers looking for ways to expand their operations, I decided to share my storage tips so that I could possibly help others with their needs. I hope the information here makes it easier for you to organize your equipment and grow your studio.

Need To Upgrade To A Larger Storage Unit? 3 Tips For A Smooth Transition

Brian Hamilton

Returning to your storage unit to access any items, only to be faced with the unit being cramped and difficult to navigate, can be a frustrating experience. Along with improper organization, the most common reason for this problem is due to the storage unit being too small for your needs.

If you chose a smaller-sized storage unit due to your initial needs for space or the lower cost, it may be time to upgrade to a larger unit.

Check if Discounts Are Available

When you've been renting your current storage unit for a long time, there's a good chance that you'll be able to qualify for discounts that you may not otherwise qualify for. Long-term tenants are good for storage facilities, due to the fact that they can continue to rely on the same tenant for rent, rather than needing to deal with vacancies.

Asking about discounts that you may qualify for when you're choosing a larger storage unit can help ensure that you're able to comfortably afford the larger unit.

Make Sure to Use the Proper Equipment

As you prepare for the move of all of your belongings from one storage unit to another, it's vital for you to consider the chance that some items can be damaged. From heavy furniture to fragile items such as mirrors or artwork, it's important for you to take care to move everything carefully.

Many storage facilities offer equipment to help with moving items, such as furniture dollies and weight-bearing harnesses. Asking about this kind of equipment or seeking assistance for moving your items to the new storage unit can ensure that everything is delivered to the other unit without any issue.

Be Sure the New Unit Will Be the Right Size

When you're going through all the trouble to upgrade to a larger storage unit, you need to take care that you select the right size. It can be so frustrating to upgrade to a larger storage unit, only to run out of available space quickly. Taking measurements and choosing a storage unit with future growth in mind can ensure that you're able to select the right-sized unit.

When you're running out of room in your current self storage unit, it becomes so important to look into picking a new storage unit that has more square footage available. In order for the new storage unit to be the right fit, consider the above tips so that you're not disappointed with the upgrade.
