Organising your Self-Storage Unit Tips

1} At this stage in your self-storage process, it's worthwhile taking some time to plan exactly how to pack your items into the unit. Unit sizes are determined by price so you can be save money here by assessing what you have to store and planning to pack it in efficiently - a smaller and well-packed unit will be cheaper than a larger one that is badly organized.

2} There are two key things to remember when organizing your self-storage unit. Firstly, you need to make sure that you can easily access the items you've stored in the facility when you want them. Secondly, you must take care when storing - these are your belongings and there are measures you can take, apart from careful packing, that will help protect them during their time in the facility.

3} If you're worried that the floor space in the facility is not clean enough and might cause damage in itself put down protective sheeting or boards.

4} If you're storing heavy items or boxes ask the manager at Locker Locker to see if they have trolleys or other machinery you can use.

5} Store your largest items first.

6} If you're stacking your unit high with boxes, always make sure to put the heaviest boxes at the bottom to avoid damage.

7} Stack boxes and similarly sized items together to save space.

8} If you're storing metal objects avoid resting them against items susceptible to damage.

9} Try to assess what you'll need to access frequently and keep it at the front of your unit.

10}Fill anything that's hollow - i.e. wardrobes, drawers, washing machines and fridges with small boxes and other items to maximize your available space.

11}Wedge the doors of all kitchen appliances whilst in the facility open to avoid bad odors and mildew etc., building up.

12}Don't store anything in the facility that you're not sure is sturdy vertically - if it seems wobbly store it horizontally.

13}Think vertical - Make the best use of your storage area by stacking to the ceiling, working from heaviest items on the bottom to lightest items on top.

14}Do not over-reach - use a stool to stack and reach items stored above your head.

15}Optimize your space - break down any furniture that has removable legs or other parts. Stack chairs seat-to-seat with towels or blankets between them.

16}Take a breath - leave a little space between the walls of your unit and your stored items to allow for ventilation.
