Store That Canary Wharf’s Top Tips for Sea Container Rentals

So, you’re looking for secure self-storage in E14 but you’re not sure which storage unit is right for you. Fortunately, Store That, Canary Wharf, have collated a list of top tips on how to make the most out of sea container rentals.

Organisation is key

When you’re placing items in your self storage unit, you’re going to want to look at it almost like a game of Tetris. If you randomly place objects here and there, you’re going to regret it fast. Why? Not only will you waste space, but you’ll also forget where you’ve placed things. Making it extremely difficult when you need to find that one particular item in a hurry.

So, how do you avoid this problem? Our sea container rentals give approximately 155sqft of storage which can hold the contents of an average 3 bedroom flat! When you’re playing with this much space, organisation is key. Make a list of everything you need to store and from there, decide which items are of high priority and place them near the front so you can easily access them.

Preparation

Unfortunately, you can’t just put your items into our storage units in E14 without any preparation. For example, if you’re storing items of clothing, ensure they are washed and dried before placing them in appropriate packaging to prevent mould or bad smells.

If you’re storing delicate items such as glassware or mirrors. Make sure you wrap them in bubble wrap or newspaper and place them on top of objects instead of underneath to prevent breakages.

Things to consider

When it comes to choosing sea container rentals and storage units in E14. It can be tempting to select the unit based on price. However, there are other factors to consider, such as:

· the security measures that are on site

· the cleanliness of units

· any extras on offer

· the hours of access

Once you’ve weighed all these options up, you can then make an informed decision.

3 Things You Probably Didn’t Know about Sea Container Storage

If you’re a regular reader of our blogs then you’ll know that at Store That Canary Wharf, we like to mix things up a bit and present you with fun facts, figures and hacks to help you make the most of our storage units in E14. This week, we’re going to tell you 3 things you probably didn’t know about sea container storage!

1. Sink or swim

One of the most surprising facts about sea container storage is that despite logic, they don’t always sink and somehow manage to stay afloat. A famous example is in 1992, when a 40ft sea container (yes, 40ft!) full to the brim of children’s toys fell into the Pacific Ocean and managed to float for a whopping total of 10 months, before drifting ashore on the Alaskan coastline. If that doesn’t prove their durability, then we don’t know what will!

2. Container city

You may have heard of sea container storage being utilised as pop up shops, restaurants and so-called man caves. However, in Mexico, the idea of a unique look was taken to a whole new level. A 48,000 square foot city was built, aptly titled ‘container city’, made entirely out of sea containers. It is host to restaurants, hotels and shops just like any other!

3. Special delivery

Ni Hao, a three-month old kitten, decided to clamber inside a sea container which was put onto a vessel and took the trip of a lifetime. Ni Hao travelled all the way from China to the other side of the world and ended up in America. The total journey was a shocking 10,450 km and Ni Hao surprisingly managed to survive two weeks without food or water. Fortunately, the kitten was nursed back to full health by the LA Departments of Animal Care and Control.
