Tips for getting the most out of your Storage Unit

Now that you know a little bit more about storage units,  let’s take a look at some tips for getting the most out of your storage unit:

1. Make sure to choose the right size storage unit

If you choose a storage unit that’s too small, you’ll end up having to pack your belongings tightly together. This can make it difficult to access them later on.  If you choose a storage unit that’s too large,  you’ll be paying for space that you’re not using. That’s why it’s important to choose the right size storage unit for your needs.

2. Utilise all available space

Once you’ve chosen the right-sized unit, it’s important to make sure you’re utilizing all the available space. One of the best ways to do this is to invest in some good-quality storage boxes. Our boxes are designed to stack on top of each other, so you can make the most of the height in your unit.
You can also use plastic storage containers to store items such as clothes and bedding. These can be stored under beds or on shelves, freeing up more space in your unit.

4. Go vertical

When it comes to making the most of your storage space, thinking outside the box – or rather, inside the box – can really pay off. Instead of just stacking your storage containers on top of each other, try to utilize the vertical space as well. This can be done by using shelves, or by hanging things up – just don’t do that with fragile items.

5. Store the items that you’ll need more near the front

This tip is especially useful if you plan on accessing your storage unit frequently. Store the items that you think you’ll need more often near the front, and the items that you won’t need as often towards the back. This will save you a lot of time and hassle in the long run.

3. Make sure to pack your belongings properly

When you’re packing your belongings for Storage,  it’s important to pack them properly. This will help to protect them from damage and make it easier to access them later on. Here are a few tips for packing your belongings properly:

– Use boxes that are the right size for your belongings.

– Label your boxes so you know what’s inside them.

– Use packing materials to protect your belongings.

4. Access your Storage unit regularly

If you’re not going to be accessing your storage unit regularly,  make sure to let us know. We can keep an eye on your belongings and make sure that they’re safe and sound.

5. Use a storage map

Another great way to stay organised is to create a storage map. This is simply a diagram of your unit, showing where everything is stored. This can be as simple or as detailed as you like – it’s up to you. But having a storage map will make it much easier to find things when you need them.

6. Use storage containers

Once you’ve grouped everything together, it’s time to start packing it into storage containers. This will help keep your belongings safe and organized while they’re in storage. Using containers can help you save a lot of space, especially when storing odd-shaped items that can’t be stacked.

7. Make sure to keep your Storage unit clean

It’s important to keep your Storage unit clean so that your belongings stay in good condition. If you have any questions about cleaning your Storage unit,  please feel free to ask us.

8. Keep an inventory

In addition to a storage map, we also recommend keeping an inventory of the items in your unit. This can be a useful reference when you’re looking for something specific, or if you need to retrieve an item for someone else. It’s also a good way to keep track of your belongings, so you know what’s in your unit at all times.

9. Store your items wisely

When storing items in your unit, try to group them together by category. For example, keep all of your gardening equipment in one place, and all of your Christmas decorations in another. This will make it much easier to find things when you need them, and keep you organized at all times.

10. Store heavy items at the bottom

When stacking boxes or containers in your unit, always put the heaviest ones at the bottom. This will stop them from toppling over and damaging any lighter or more fragile items.

11. Make sure to follow the rules

When you’re using a storage unit, it’s important to follow the rules. That’s in consideration that Storage units are shared spaces and we want to make sure that everyone can use them safely and effectively.
