The smartest move into a storage unit starts with a simple plan and a few tips from the pros! Once you choose to rent at our storage facility, our staff will assist with your specific needs and always be on hand to help, but meanwhile, here are some of the basics, but essentials!
Fully Maximise The Space
Just about every one of our storage units are at least 3 metres high , so you can stack your stuff to make the most efficient use of the storage space. Place the heavier, sturdier items at the bottom and stack the rest on top. Be sure check for stability – we don’t want anything toppling over! Extra hint – Be sure to thoroughly pack your storage boxes using packing paper to fill gaps; this helps to keep the contents stable.
Always Leave An Aisle Open
Make sure you have a way to access your belongings at the back of your storage space. We can guarantee you’ll be back to find that spare toaster or that one special toy that your child simply cannot live without! Granted, that same toy hasn’t been touched in at least six months, but you try reasoning with a four year old! Either way toys, electronics and priceless possessions will be securely and properly stored.
