When it comes to putting items in storage units, many Wakefield residents drive right up to the unit and then pile everything in it as it comes off the truck. This seems like a good way to do it until time comes for you to retrieve an item – you have to remove everything until you get to it, which is a waste of time. If, however, you organize your self storage Wakefield unit you can very easily retrieve things, and you reduce the chance of getting your items damaged. Your unit also looks neat and nice which is an additional bonus. There are several ways that you can organize your unit and save space. Start by organizing everything in sturdy boxes. You can buy these at your local store. Label each box so that it is easy to find items. If you have large items, such as sofas or other furniture you can put it in crates – the whole idea is that so long things are in rectangular or square packages they are easier to store. Arrange the boxes neatly in your unit, with the larger, heavier boxes at the bottom. Make sure that you don’t pile things too high as they can topple over. If you have items in smaller boxes consider installing shelves in the unit. You should talk to Wakefield storage provider about how best to go about this. If they don’t allow you to mount shelves in the unit you can consider buying plastic ones – they are affordable and they will provide the additional space that you need.
The other important thing to consider is the space that you need to walk around your items. If you pack your unit tight from one corner to another you will have no way of retrieving items unless you remove everything. You should leave a space at least a couple of feet wide between the boxes and the unit. Remember to pack the boxes with the labels facing outwards. The bottom line, when it comes to organizing your self storage Wakefield unit, is to make getting to items easy. You should also work on maximizing the use of the space – you will pay for that unit every day it is rented to you so make the best use you can of the space.
