Make the most out of your self storage unit

If you have rented a storage unit for those items that just seem to be hanging around your home, then you might be wondering how you are going to make the most out of this space. That is why we have written this article, and down below you are going to find some of our best tips on how you can maximise the amount that you can get in here, and really utilise all of the space. Keep reading if you want to find out more.

Use Shelving

The first thing that we are going to suggest is that you install some kind of shelving into the unit. This is going to be helpful because it means instead of stacking everything up on the floor, you have some higher space to store some of the smaller stuff. The good thing about this is that you can fit quite a lot onto a shelf if it is sturdy and you know how to make things fit! If not, you will be able to figure it out while you are packing things into it.

Shelving is a practical solution to quite a big problem. It isn’t always going to be possible to have everything on the floor, especially if you are going to be storing things that you don’t want to get broken and they are delicate. So, by putting up these shelves, you are maximising the amount of space that you have, and providing yourself a safe place for any breakables!

Pack Your Items Well

Another suggestion that we have for you is to pack your items into the storage unit well. This isn’t always an easy task, and if you haven’t had much practice and making things fit into a small space, it can be quite tricky. The easiest thing to do is to look at the shape of your boxes and items and see if you can fit any of them together. It is going to be easier to stack things if they are roughly the same shape, or smaller than the thing below it.

Also, try to fit as much into one box as possible. If you have a whole load of little items, then there are plenty of storage units in Crawley that will be able to fit your needs, as long as you know how to pack them! Try to get as much into the box as possible by playing around and putting things in new positions.

Plan Ahead

Finally, try to plan ahead. Go and see the storage unit before you start packing your things into there so that you can work out a rough idea of where things should be going in your head. This is going to make it a lot easier when you come to move things in, as you will already have a pretty good idea of what space you have, and what can go where.

We hope that you have found this article helpful, and now know how to make the most out of your self-storage unit. Good luck!
