Our Top 5 Storage Hacks with Store That, Secure Self-Storage E14
At Store That, self storage East London, we understand how frustrating it can be trying to fit that extra piece of furniture into your storage units in E14. Fortunately, we have decided to let you know our top 5 favourite storage hacks to make the most out of your storage space.
1. Vertical, Not Horizontal
We suggest looking at your storage unit almost like a game of Tetris. You going to want to fit in as much as possible. If you’re planning to store any large furniture such as a sofa, wardrobe or table, you’re going to want to make sure that these are occupying vertical space. Why? Because then you will have a lot more floor space for smaller items, allowing you to fit more inside.
2. Outer Walls and Aisles
Storing your possessions along the outer walls first allows you to recognise how much space you still have, not only that, but it will also utilise as much space as possible. If you just place things randomly, you’re going to run out of space very quickly. Leave aisles between your boxes too. This may seem like an inconvenience; however, it does allow you to have access to everything. If you don’t do this, you will have to spend time rummaging through all your belongings to find one key thing.
You may want to invest in some metal shelving to install in the less used vertical space. This means that you can stack boxes on the floor as well as on the shelves. However, be careful when it comes to stacking boxes on the ground. If you stack too many, the boxes on the bottom will crush under the weight and potentially damage your possessions. We also offer a shelf rental system system.
4. Plan Ahead
When it comes to organising your self storage E14, you’re going to need to strategically plan where you want to place your belongings. For example, place the items you’re most likely to use more often toward the front of the unit and the objects that probably won’t need to see the light of day any time soon, toward the back.
5. It’s a Wrap
Make sure to properly cover and wrap your belongings before placing them into your storage unit, this way, it prevents dust from settling on your belongings and helps protect them against potential damages.
