Top 10 Tips for Organising Your Storage Unit

Getting everything into a storage unit is one thing. Being able to access your stored items is another thing. So let’s go through the ways to keep your storage unit organised. Keeping your storage unit in order ensures you can easily access your belongings and make the most of the space. Here are ten tips to help you maintain an orderly storage unit. 

1. Label Everything

Clearly label all boxes and containers with their contents. Use colour-coded labels or markers for different categories to simplify identification.

2. Create an Inventory List

Maintain a detailed list of everything in your storage unit. This will help you track your items and locate them quickly when needed.

3. Use Uniform Boxes

Opt for boxes of the same size to make stacking easier and more stable. This also helps in maximising vertical space. Use our box shop if you need some materials.

4. Store Items Vertically

Take advantage of the unit’s height by stacking boxes and using shelving units. Place heavier items on the bottom and lighter ones on top.

5. Disassemble Large Items

Break down furniture and large items to save space. Keep screws and small parts in labelled bags taped to the respective items.

6. Keep Frequently Used Items Accessible

Place items you might need to access regularly near the front of the unit. Create a walkway to ensure you can reach the back without moving everything around.

7. Use Clear Containers

Store items in clear plastic containers. This allows you to see the contents without opening each box.

8. Protect Fragile Items

Wrap fragile items in bubble wrap or packing paper and store them in sturdy boxes. Label these boxes as “fragile” to prevent accidental damage. Our box shop has you covered for that.

9. Plan Your Layout

Sketch a simple map of your storage unit layout. Note where categories of items are stored, making retrieval easier.

10. Clean and Maintain

Regularly check your storage unit for any signs of damage. Keep the unit clean and ensure items are stored off the ground to prevent further damage.
