How to Maximise Your Storage Unit Space

One of the most effective ways to get the most out of your self storage unit is to use your space efficiently. 

The first step is to determine which storage space is best for you. If you’re unsure where to begin, you can use our size estimator to help. The next step is to streamline your storage unit organisation. 

Consider the following tips for using your storage unit to its full potential:

  • Invest in proper packing supplies
  • Fill hollow items such as drawers and the space underneath chairs
  • Use soft items, such as clothing and linen, for cushioning
  • Put less used items towards the back of your unit
  • Make an aisle or two so that you can move around
  • Stack the same size boxes when possible (but not too high)
  • Place the heaviest items on the bottom, and the lightest on the top

How to Ensure Your Items Remain Protected in Storage

Whether you’re securing your winter gear during the warmer months or keeping your treasured items while downsizing, it’s important to pack your belongings with care. 

While self storage is a clean and secure storage solution, there are a few easy packing tips to make sure that your belongings remain protected.

  • Choose a safe and secure storage facility
  • Invest in strong, quality storage boxes
  • Buy packing materials to seal and protect items
  • Use bubble wrap and soft cushioning to protect fragile items
  • Cover and wrap upholstered and wooden furniture
  • Line mirrors and picture frames with cardboard
  • Clean and dry appliances before putting them in storage
  • Clean and dry all seasonal gear before packing them away
  • Disassemble large furniture
  • Keep all small items grouped together

Following these tips will prevent mould and mildew, keep pests at bay, and ensure that your belongings don’t get damaged.
