Renting a storage facility

Renting a storage facility If you have decided to rent a storage facility in order to store some of your possessions, there a few helpful hints to make certain that you obtain the most from your experience.  One good tip is to begin packing your storage facility with items that you know for certain you are not going to need any time soon.  This means that you can then put items that you are going to need closer to the front and thus easier to gain access to.

It is also a good idea to begin filling a storage facility with large, solid items.  Items that are smaller, such as small boxes in particular, can then be stacked on top of the larger goods.  Long items should, it at all possible, be stood on their side.  Making use of the height of the unit will ultimately give you more space to play with.

It is also a good idea to make use of the space inside certain objects, such as wardrobes, to store things such as bags and boxes.  One side wall of the storage space should be used in order to stack boxes as high as it is possible to do so.  If you are putting a fridge into storage then the door should be left open.

Blankets, clothing and linen being placed into storage can be protected with mothballs, and it is important to remember that it is not permitted to place flammable items or perishables into storage.
