Organising Your Self Storage Unit For Success

When it comes to decluttering your living or office space, self storage units have become a popular solution. Whether you are downsizing, relocating or simply need extra space, having a well-organised self storage unit is essential for maximising its potential. In this blog post, we will share some tips on how to organise your self storage unit for success.

Plan & Sort

Before you start packing your belongings into the storage unit, take some time to plan and sort through your items. Create an inventory list and categorise your items into different groups, such as seasonal items, furniture, documents or personal belongings. This will help you determine the size of the storage unit you need and keep track of your items more efficiently.

Maximise Space

Optimising the space in your self storage unit is crucial. Start by disassembling furniture and stacking items whenever possible. Utilise vertical space by placing taller items towards the back of the unit. Use sturdy, stackable boxes to make the most of available space. It’s also worth labelling each box clearly so that you can easily locate items when needed.

Create Pathways

Avoid the frustration of having to move multiple boxes to reach something at the back of your storage unit. Leave pathways between your stacked items, allowing easy access to all parts of the unit. This will save you time and effort when you need to retrieve specific items.

Consider Climate Control

If you have items that are sensitive to temperature or humidity, such as wooden furniture, electronics, or delicate clothing, opt for a self storage unit with climate control. This feature helps maintain a stable environment, protecting your belongings from extreme temperatures and moisture.

Security Measures

Invest in a quality lock for your unit and consider using security seals on boxes. Keep a detailed list of valuable items and consider getting insurance for added peace of mind.

Regular Maintenance

To ensure the longevity of your stored items, visit your self storage unit periodically to check for any signs of damage or pests. Take a few moments to dust off and clean items, and make any necessary adjustments to the organisation. Regular maintenance will help you preserve the condition of your belongings and prevent any surprises when you eventually retrieve them.
