Storage tips

Here are some storage tips that you may find useful to:

Ensure the condition of your goods

  • Open the door of your unit regularly to check on your contents and help ventilation and air circulation
  • Use sheets of cardboard or plastic on the floor or over soft furnishings
  • Larger items of furniture benefit from being stored with small gaps between each other and between them and the unit walls again to help air circulation within the unit

Make the most of your space and make access to your goods easy

  • Keep frequently used items or needed items near the entrance of the unit so store least used items first. We recommend important documents or other paperwork to be stored inside lidded plastic boxes and store them in the same place
  • Disassemble beds and wardrobes to save space. Chairs can be stowed seat to seat or upside down on other items. Store large items such as mattresses and settees on end or vertically
  • Use plastic see through boxes for storing small items - great to be able to see what is where without opening everything
  • Cut timber wedges to bridge the small step at the entrance of the unit if vehicles or equipment are regularly taken in and out
  • Fit racks to organise and store materials and tools
  • Use ceiling hooks to hang frames, netting or support lines, criss-crossing the unit
