If you have ever placed items in storage, you will appreciate the enormity of the task. This is especially true if you have a lot of items to organise. If you do not take a methodical approach, it can quickly become stressful. Boxes are going to be your best friend when putting items in storage. They are sturdy, and will help keep your items clean and dry. Additionally, having all of your items in boxes will help you keep your unit organised. Today we are going to outline how to pack boxes for storage.

People use storage facilities for a variety of reasons. For the most part storage units provide individuals with the valuable space they may lack at home. In addition, people often feel more comfortable storing valuable items in a secure storage facility. Whatever the reason, storage units are fast becoming popular. In today’s post we are going to share what the most common items in storage units are and, additionally, how some of these items can be prepared for storage.

If you have never used self storage before, there are many reasons why you could fall in love with it. See our top four reasons to love self storage…..

  1. Get extra space at home. Your home should feel like a living space not like a storage space. Do you have to-do piles that never get actioned? Belongings filling corners that you haven’t used in years but can’t throw away? Look around you and ask yourself what you want from your living space in 2020.
  2. Get extra space at work. Make your office a great place to work that is free from distractions. Move your archiving, seasonal stock, overstock into a storage to reclaim your work space.
  3. Get your spare bedroom back if you are working from home. Run an e-commerce business from a storage unit and clear your house, garage or shed of stock. Improve your work life balance with a dedicated work space and dedicated home space.
  4. Last minute storage help in a dilemma. Sometimes life throws us a curve ball and we find ourselves needing help in a hurry. The stress of house sale delay, an extension taking over the house or a garage falling down can all be eased with self storage, which can be booked quickly at last minute with flexible short or long term contracts to suit your needs.
