Storage tips: how to use your unit efficiently
At Storebox, we want to make sure that you get the right sized unit for you – so here are our storage tips!
We have storage options from 10 sq. ft. to 160 sq.ft, with any and all in between.
Everyone wants to get the most bang for their buck – so why choose a unit that is bigger than you need?
With the following storage tips, you’ll be able to make the most of our space, and rest assured that your things are safe.
Separate out your stuff
When moving house or decluttering, you will surprise yourself with how much stuff you have!
Don’t worry – this is totally normal. Furniture, pictures, all manner of technology – these are all important mementoes.
There will also be stuff that you don’t want, so separate out the stuff that you really want to keep safe.
Find the right packing materials
Next, you’re going to need to transport what you have.
Shops will often have spare boxes that can be used, meaning you save a little bit while recycling!
If you have fragile items, bubble wrap and newspaper will help prevent any damage when moving.
To best store your stuff, try and find uniform-sized boxes to make the most of your unit.
Write a list
Make a list of the things that you have, and keep it safe – we recommend leaving it in the unit with your stuff.
Take a photo of it on your phone as a backup, so you can account for all of your things.
Beware fragile items
When you are stacking, make sure that the more fragile items are stored towards the top.
There’s nothing worse than hearing the tinkle of glass when you’re moving!
Store based on accessibility
At Storebox, we make sure our units are totally accessible so you can reach your stuff when you need it – we recommend you do too!
Leave a path down the middle of the unit so you can move around.
You can also save yourself a lot of hassle by storing the things that you will need more often at the front of the unit.
