Maximising Your Perth Storage Unit

Choosing the Right Unit Size

The first thing that you need to do is to choose the right unit size for your belongings. You surely don’t want something that’s too small or too big, so assessing your belongings is the best way to know which unit size you need. 

Create an inventory of the items that you want to store, from sporting equipment, decorations to bulky items, including electronic appliances, extra chairs, and sofas. If you have collector’s items, artworks, and old keepsakes, you may want to consider them as well. 

Once done, you can assess the right unit size for your belongings. You can also send an enquiry at Perth Storage to help you pick the right storage unit size for you and your belongings. 

Know How to Pack Efficiently

Now that you’ve chosen the right storage unit size, the next thing that you need to do is to start packing your belongings. Invest in good packing supplies, including quality boxes, bubble wraps, tapes, and markers. It would be best to make sure that your boxes are of the same size to stacking them will be much easier.

When packing, make sure to fill hollow items, including chairs, dressers, and desks. Check whatever things can fit into them to make the most out of their spaces. For bulk items, it would be best to fill them once they are in the storage unit itself to help minimise their weight.

Map Out the Storage Unit Space

Create a map of your storage unit, as this will help you organise your items once you move them inside the unit. Less used items should be placed at the back of your unit. If your unit has ample space, it would be best to create an aisle so you can easily see and access your items. When creating an aisle, make sure that it reaches the back for maximum accessibility. 

Place your map at the front of your storage unit, so you know which items are placed where. You can use the map as your reference so you can find your items as quickly and easily as possible.
