The diagram below will provide you with lots of effective ideas to get you started and help you visualise how our storage units will work for you and your goods. Your solution may be to pack tightly utilising all available space or perhaps pack leaving a walkway for frequent access to add or remove your goods.
Pack tightly and efficiently
leave space to be able to add or remove items
Packing tight generally requires a small size unit
- Protect mattresses and furniture with pads and covers.
- Place valuables such as electronic equipment towards rear of your storage space.
- Wrap mirrors and pictures with paper pads or use mirror boxes. Never store these items flat.
- Store items you’ll need more often at the front of your unit.
- Label all boxes on several sides for easy locating.
- Keep refrigerator and freezer doors slightly ajar and clean before storing and don’t forget to use the space inside for extra storage.
- Disassemble tables and shelves and store on their sides. Be sure to wrap and mark all pieces for easy re-assembly.
- Drain petrol from lawn mowers and other power equipment and wipe a few drops of machine oil on metal tools, bicycles and equipment to prevent rusting.
- Seal boxes completely with packing tape to keep out dust and pack snugly to prevent collapsing when stacked.
- Center aisle for access to all items.
