Storage Tips

Self Storage Tips & Tricks

  • Store largest, heaviest items first - these will form a base from which you can work forwards and upwards with lighter, more fragile items
  • Fill hollow items such as wardrobes and chests with boxes - to maximise your storage capacity
  • Store appliances clean and thoroughly dried out with doors wedged ajar for ventilation
  • If possible, store sofas and beds on their ends to maximise the use of the height of the storage room
  • Use blankets to protect surfaces from scratching - we sell removal blankets if you run out of your own
  • Store lighter boxes on the top of stacks. Using good quality boxes that have the same footprint will make stacking easier and more space efficient
  • Store mirrors and pictures upright with suitable protection in between
  • Stack chairs seat to seat
