Once you have decided that using a secure self storage unit is for you and you have decided what you need to put in to storage. As removals and storage experts here at Burke Bros, we know the importance of making all the space count when packing and filling your self storage unit to make sure you are getting the most for your money! That is why we are giving you these tips to help you get the most use out of your self storage.
Start of making a general list of your items you will be taking in to self storage and a plan of how you will want to arrange your items.
Take in to consideration any items you may need easy access too should be near the front and top of your unit.
You may wish to clean your self storage unit to ensure everything is kept clean once moved in to storage.
Avoid putting in any wet or damp items which may increase your risk of damp and mildew.
If you have shelving or racking, make the most of this space by storing smaller lighter items packed in boxes or modularly packed.
Stack yours boxes in a way that each box can be easily accessed. Simply storing stacks and stacks of boxes will make it difficult to find your belongings, if possible create an aisle so your boxes are easily accessible without having to move items out of the way.
Store mirrors and framed items on their side, never lying flat.
If you are storing larger items of furniture you may wish to dismantle them to save space, although this can be time consuming it will save you a lot of space.
If you cannot dismantle pieces of furniture then try to use the hollows to store items, for example in a wardrobe you can still use the space inside to store items.
One of the most important factors when thinking about self storage is using the best facility locally to you. You need somewhere that is safe and secure and where you can access your goods! To view our self storage facilities in Wolverhampton here at Burke Bros call us on 01902 714555.
