Properly planning how you pack and store your belongings now, can save you a lot of hassle later on. Here are our top tips on packing a storage space; how to pack,making sure you avoid pitfalls and get the most from your storage room:
Make sure you can easily access your belongings
Categorise your belongings into groups, for example, are there certain items you will need to access or use regularly? If so, store them where you can easily get to them, for example on top of other items and towards the front of the unit.
Keep your fragile items safe
Use boxes to pack your belongings, don’t rely on plastic bags. Boxes are stronger and much easier to stack and take up less room. Also, items enclosed in plastic bags can become humid and even attract mildew, causing irreparable damage.
Make sure you pack heavier, sturdier items at the bottom of stacked items. Pack any breakables or precious items in boxes, protected with bubble wrap on top of heavier, more unbreakable items. Some items may not fit in a protective box because of their shape, consider where in the room you can store them.
