The ‘Dos’ and Definite ‘Donts’ of Self-Storage Isle of Dogs

When investing in self-storage Isle of Dogs, you want your possessions to stay in the best condition possible. The best way to do this is by following our suggestions below.

We’ve included some hilarious ‘don’ts’ that believe it or not have all actually happened in self-storage around the world before!

Do: Label Everything! Trust us, labelling boxes with what’s inside can seem like an obvious task but it is often easily forgotten! Don’t: Use your self-storage unit in E14 to store pets Once a man in Vancouver, Canada decided to move his seven snakes into his self-storage unit, keeping them warm by installing a 100-watt bulb. Please don’t do this – as much as snakes would be great at keeping your storage guarded, at StoreThat E14 we have 24-hour CCTV to keep your mind at ease.

Do: Stack to the Ceiling To maximise the amount of space you have in your storage units in E14, stacking boxes to the ceiling can significantly increase room for more items. Make sure you stack the heaviest boxes at the bottom of the piles to reduce the likelihood of items breaking. Don’t: Store Food in your unit As much as storing ‘treat’ foods away in storage during a diet might seem like the ideal solution, it’s not. Even non-perishable items like muesli bars should remain at home, as you’re likely to attract pests and provide them with plenty of furniture to stay a while (not a great idea!)

Do: Cover all items Purchasing protective covers can ensure your items remain clean and in perfect condition for as long as you need. It’s a good idea to cover beds, sofas, electronics and other valuable items. Don’t: Live in your storage unit Whilst our drive up units in E14 do provide the perfect access and are very clean and secure, we wouldn’t encourage taking up permanent residency in one! Believe it or not, people have tried moving into storage units in other countries in the past but it is in fact strictly forbidden.
