How to Make the Most of Your Storage Unit

If you’re looking for storage in Solihull or the surrounding area then we should be your first port of call. We can offer reliable domestic and commercial self storage which is flexible to suit your specific requirements, while you only have to pay for the storage you need with our short-term contracts that are arranged per calendar month.
So if you do choose to store your property with us how do you make the most of the unit and maximise the space?

Pack Efficiently

The secret to utilising your storage space effectively is in the way you pack your items in the first place. Failing to fill boxes properly or using packaging that is larger than necessary will result in storage space being wasted but there are a number of things you can do to make sure this doesn’t happen.

Make sure that you completely fill boxes (though be careful not to add more weight than the box – or you – can handle) and distribute the weight evenly to make sure that they don’t collapse. Using good quality, sturdy boxes will also help to avoid this. Also, use square or rectangle boxes when possible as any other shapes will be far harder to store efficiently.

Take Apart Larger Items Where Possible

For items such as large pieces of furniture try and take them apart to store them if possible. If something doesn’t come apart then utilise the space in and around it, for example store boxes beneath a table between the floor and top, or use space inside a wardrobe for additional storage.
