STORE SMARTER, NOT HARDER
Self storage units are a very useful tool. Having that extra bit of room in your house or business can make ALL the difference.
1) ARRANGE YOUR GOOD'S AS PER NEED
If you need a particular item more than another, keep it towards the front of your unit. This way you can access the item without a fuss. If you are hiring a removalist, request that they move these boxes onto the truck first, as these items will be the last off.
2) PLAY TETRIS & STACK VERTICALLY
Large items can be stacked on their sides to take up less floor space. When storing multiple items in a unit it is recommended that you use packing boxes. Each packing box is designed for the purpose of stacking and storage use and is constructed using a thick and sturdy cardboard, you will be able to source these affordable packing tools via our front office.
3) UTILIZE ALL NOOK'S AND CRANNY'S
Gaps are your friend! Place soft bedding into garbage bags and fill the spaces between each piece of furniture.
4) MAKE SURE THE UNIT SIZE IS SUITABLE
At simply self storage you can always UP-SIZE or DOWNSIZE whenever you need without any charge.
So when you are in the process of moving in, if you feel like you need more space, let our staff know and they will fix you up with a bigger size unit as we like to customise all of our customer's experience's.
5) MAKE SURE YOU LEAVE ENOUGH SPACE TO MOVE THINGS AROUND
The best way to look at storage is as an extension to your house. You should keep all those little things that you use once a year in the storage unit as you can have access to your unit any time you'd like and on short notice, you can come and grab them when you need. However always keep enough space to be able to access those items.
6) SHELVING CAN BE YOUR BEST FRIEND
One of the best ways to organise a storage unit is to approach it as if it is your garage. Using easy assemble and collapsible shelving is one of the best ways to achieve perfect organisation.
