Storage Advice To Help You Make The Most Of Your Space ➤
When you invest in business storage with storing.com you will be getting an unbeatable price for extra space for your personal belongings or business items, but it still makes sense to make the most of your space and only pay for what you really need..
Here’s how to make the most of every bit of pace in your storage unit:
1. Document Everything
You’re not trying to reinvent Aladdin’s cave here, you should be able to find everything you want to find in your unit especially the items stored in boxes that can be difficult to find at a later date. You can document where each item is stored in whatever way you find most helpful but remember there’s no point in writing a list on paper if you’re going to lose it. Instead why not use the ‘notes’ app on your phone, use your diary or an Excel spreadsheet – whatever works for you. Make a diagram, write a reference with numbers or even Disney names that correspond with boxes – as long as you’re fully documenting item locations then you have a way to identify where your items are and retrieve them when the time comes. The only rule is to make sure you keep your list or diagram up to date if you occasionally remove items from storage or move boxes around.
2. Keep Access
If you have a large unit, you need to make sure you keep a pathway to the back of the unit to enable you to easily gain access to all of your things without having to unload the whole storage unit to get to something at the back. Keep any items you think you may want to access regularly at the front of the unit.
3. Use All The Space
Remember storage units can be high so make sure you utilise all of your space by stacking items safely. Our 160 sq ft unit for instance is 237cm high (that’s 7′ 9″) so about as tall as the average ceiling height in a house. If you are stacking boxes then make sure that they are sturdy enough to take the weight of what is placed on top of them. If they are being stored long term, remember they may slowly crush the boxes below or start to lean if the stack is not secure.
4. Have A Little ‘Useful’ Area
Have a small area within the unit where you keep scissors, a cardboard cutting knife, tape, labels, pens, paper and anything else useful in unpacking and packing boxes back up. This saves you having to leave the unit to pack and unpack.
5. Protect Your Belongings
Make sure you package your items properly. Use materials like foam pieces, cloth, sturdy packing boxes and labels. Different items need caring for in different ways so do your research – especially if your items are worth a lot of money, or they have sentimental value and cannot be replaced.
6. Adapt The Space To Suit Your Needs
Don’t be afraid to adapt the space to suit your needs – you’re paying for it after all, so optimise away! Perhaps you used to use it for your hobby but you’ve started an online business and it is a store room now so you need to clear space. Maybe you put items in it that need a cooler temperature so you need to use temperature control.
7. Spring Clean!
Make sure you have regular spring cleans so you’re not paying for space you don’t need. Get rid of any rubbish whenever possible, and look over your list of stored items regularly to consider whether or not you still want them. You might be able to downsize and pay less.
7 Businesses That Could Benefit From Using Self Storage ➤
Find out about 7 professions that could benefit from the many advantages of self storage.
Self storage is a service where a person rents a unit which could be a storage container, or something more like a garage. It could even be a gym locker or something small, or maybe a huge football field sized space. The spaces are always secure, dry, clean and often temperature controlled. Domestic users have always benefited from using self storage, but more recently, business users have started to reap the rewards too as they recognise the many benefits of the service.
Do you own a business? Could you benefit from using storage?
Here are 7 professions that could benefit from using business storage:
1. Food Trucks
Food trucks are likely to have a lot of items they need to stock up on or use regularly but they don’t have room to store those items. Commercial self storage offers a space to store items between refills.
If you make crafts to sell and it isn’t just a hobby sized business, you may need extra space to stock both craft supplies and finished products you sell. It can also be a handy space to use for order fulfillment.
3. Wine Dealer
Wine needs very specific storage to keep it in good condition and with temperature controlled storage you can create the perfect conditions to store wine as you collect it and sell it on.
4. Antiques Dealer
Antiques can be worth a lot of money and self storage is often more secure than any home and often more secure than a warehouse. Self storage is a great place for storing antiques if you deal in them.
If you upcycle items for a living then you need to be able to pick stock up to store it before you sell it on, and it is likely to be large and bulky too, so a space separate from your home is even more useful. The money of your business comes from the upcycling, which is why ideally items you upcycle are free or very cheap so it pays to be able to buy it or collect it when it becomes available.
If you are a mobile photographer you may have lots of equipment that you need to chop and change. Equipment that is expensive and may not be suitable for storage in a van or even in your home. This is especially true if you have large backdrop rolls and accessories. Because business storage is temperature controlled it is especially useful for photography equipment.
If you need to market items you sell at trade shows a lot, or you setup at festivals or anywhere you need a large stand, then self storage could be really useful. It can also be a great place to prepare marketing materials before a big show.
These are just a few of the professions that can benefit from cheap self storage. Many businesses can benefit from self storage in many different ways. Perhaps today is the day you look into this amazing service and how it could benefit your business.
Why Choose Climate Controlled Storage? ➤
Find out why storage can be even better at keeping your things in good condition with a climate controlled unit.
Self storage is a flexible, helpful and convenient service that helps both domestic and business customers enjoy extra space at affordable rates.
When you look for business storage you might look for the following benefits:
- Helpful staff who are friendly and get back to your enquiries quickly
- A good location that helps you gain easy access to your things
- Flexibility of unit size enabling you to get the right size for your needs at any one time
- Affordable cost that reflects the quality of the self storage company and what they offer
- Extra services at cost, such as removals
- 24/7 reception
- Flexible contracts that enable you to switch unit size easily, and that don’t tie you down to several months of commitment at a time
- Excellent security
All of the above are important things to look for when you choose business storage in London (or local to you). One thing you may not have considered a priority when choosing a self storage facility is climate controlled self storage. In the UK, we are very seasonal and temperatures can fluctuate massively. This can be a real issue for belongings which can respond to extreme temperatures. Wood can expand and contract, electronics can break, and wine can be totally ruined in temperature fluctuations.
With that in mind, it is worth considering a cheap climate controlled self storage which keeps the unit at a constant temperature year round. Here are a few reasons why climate controlled self storage is a good idea:
If You Store Certain Items
Wooden furniture, wine, leather, appliances, electronics, vinyl, vehicles, artwork, clothing, expensive hobby items, paperwork and photos are just some of the items sensitive to temperature and high levels of moisture. Self storage with climate control can protect those items well.
You Want Optimum Control
Climate control gives you that little bit more control over the condition of your items. It means that you can be even more sure your things will be in the same condition as when you left them.
You Want Choice
Climate controlled business storage can often be operated per unit, which gives you the choice of temperature. So if you are holding wine or something with an optimum climate need, then climate control can be extremely helpful.
A Sign Of A Great Facility
Climate control shows that the facility want to provide as much choice and quality in their service as possible. Often, facilities who take great pride in having the latest security systems, technology and tools will have climate control because they want to provide the best possible benefits to their customers.
If you are thinking about commercial storage then why not consider climate control as a benefit you want as part of your contract? At the very least it will afford you more choice in the climate you hold your items in, and at the most, it till help you to properly protect sensitive materials dabs belongings from damaging temperature fluctuations.
