4 Tips For Organising Your Self Storage Unit

If you are looking for a Huntingdon storage facility some pre planning and organisation will go a long way to making the process easier and helping you get the most from the right size of self storage unit.

Self Storage Tip #1 – Consider racking in your self storage unit

  • If you will be actively using your self storage unit as part of your business for storing stock, then proper organisation will be crucial to make sure that you can locate items quickly and efficiently.
  • Both stock control and dispatch will be improved if items can be clearly viewed
  • Installing racking in your self storage unit ( The Storage Hub can help you with this) will provide you with a simple way to organise stock and prevent smaller fragile items being damaged by bigger heavier stock items

Self Storage Tip #2 – Declutter before storing

  • Before you think about putting items into self storage evaluate if you actually need them. Financially it makes no sense to pay for storage space to keep items that ultimately you dont want ( or will dispose of once you take the items out of storage)
  • By decluttering as you pack you might be able to rent a smaller storage unit
  • if you have items that you no longer need please consider donating to charity or seeing if they can be recycled

Self Storage Tip #3 – Take care when packing

  • It may seam obvious but the more care that you take when packing your items for storage, the greater the chance that they will be in the same condition when you take them out of storage
  • There are a wide range of approaches available
    • Bubble wrap is perfect for wrapping fragile porcelain and ornaments
    • If you have leather furniture – make sure that it is cleaned and polished before being stored
    • Cover furniture with dust sheets
    • If you are storing mattresses make sure you use mattress protectors

Self Storage Tip #4 –  Cardboard or Plastic boxes

  • Cardboard boxes allow fabrics to breathe easier, plus they are lighter and more cost-effective. At the Storage Hub with our internal dry and damp free storage units the majority of our users find cardboard containers are the better option
  • Quality Plastic boxes are sturdier than cardboard, so often used for fragile items such as crockery, porcelain or ornaments. If you are using indoor storage ( i.e. The Storage Hub) then damp and mould wont be a problem, but in outdoor storage containers using a plastic container will potentially help keep items dry
