Congratulations on acquiring your new storage unit! Now, it’s time to start storing but did you know that there are certain ways and methods you can use to maximise your storage unit space?
Yes, that’s right! Here are 5 tips to maximise your storage unit to its fullest potential.
1. Install racks and shelves
Get the most out of every nook and corner by fixing racks against the surrounding three walls of your storage unit. With these extra shelves, you will be able to fully utilise the top area of your storage unit that you wouldn’t have been able to reach by simply stacking the items on the floor.
2. Box it up from our Box Shop
Boxes will help you get the most of your storage unit as it’ll make your stored items easier to stack! Plus, your items will be covered, safe from dust and grime! Are you looking for quality packaging materials? Shop for all your packing needs such as cardboard boxes, bubble wrap, packing tape and more online from our Box Shop and we’ll have them delivered to your doorstep. It’s really that convenient!
3. Label everything from A-Z
Next it’s time to grab your marker pens and label stickers to indicate what sort of items are inside each box. If you have time to spare, list down the items inside the box so you’ll know what’s inside without having to open it! This will cut down on your search time when you come over to collect your items.
4. Stack heavy items at the bottom
Yes, the law of gravity! Stack your heavy items at the bottom with the lighter items at the top. You won’t want your heavier items squishing your lighter items or risk your items falling over. This could damage your items or you could hurt your back from lifting those bulky boxes!
5. Position your items strategically
The key is to plan well. Come up with a positioning strategy for your convenience. Store items you frequently use towards the front or easy to reach areas. Whereas, items that you use less frequently should be stored towards the back or on higher shelves. Trust us, you will thank yourself for doing this later!
Now, that you have your storage unit well organised, you can easily and conveniently access your items whenever and wherever in a jiffy!
