Get Summer Ready With Our Top Storage Tips!

Summer is on its way and it’s the perfect time to spring into action and make sure you’ve got all the space you need. Clear out some space to let the good summer vibes in and get ready for everyone’s favourite time of year.  Here are our top tips for getting yourself ready for a great summer by using self storage:

  • If you plan or need to frequently use the space, a larger space may be more convenient than one packed to capacity, creating a walkway in your unit will also mean that you can access all of the space in the unit whilst you are storing there.
  • Plan your space - start with bulky items and your heaviest boxes, stacking from the back of your unit making your way to the front; put those items that you need to get to most often near the front, close to the door. Not only will this make your life easier, it will also make sure that most of the hard work is done first.
  • Pack according to the season, bulky winter clothing can be packed away for the summer season and free up valuable storage space in your wardrobe.
  • Label or number all boxes on all four sides for easy identification. This will make sure you won’t have to open every box looking for your favourite winter coat later in the year.
  • Try to keep boxes in uniform sizes as these are much easier to stack and will make your storage space look far neater.
  • Make up an inventory of your stored items and keep it in a safe place at home. This will make sure you don't search unnecessarily for an item you stored safely in your unit.
  • Furniture with drawers can be utilised as storage places for china, silverware and small items; wrap them in tablecloths, towels or blankets to prevent breakage when they are stored.
  • Wardrobe boxes allow you to store your clothing on hangers which keeps their shape and makes them easy to search through when looking for a specific item.
  • Secure your unit with one of our high quality padlocks, this will make sure that your stuff is kept safe and secure and that you are the only person with access to your unit.
