Self Storage - Utilise the Space of Your Container

Having a self storage container is a must for many people. Some people choose to have them so that they can store their priceless family heirlooms, their favorite collections, or their family furniture. Others have them so that they can store their business files, furniture, or equipment. Whatever the reason, having self storage space is a common necessity and it’s smart to utilise the space properly to ensure everything is well packed and can fit.

Packing items properly can go a long way toward helping to organize the space of the container. One recommended method for things like family heirlooms or fragile items is to pack them with great care. Using things like newspaper or bubble wrap to carefully wrap fragile or expensive items can ensure that they won’t break during the storing process. Many people use these methods to pack fragile glass, tea sets, and other priceless items that are important to keep safe and in good condition.

Labeling boxes after packing them is a smart way to keep track items and to keep the self storage container organized efficiently. For example, using a black permanent marker or label printed out with what the contents are can be used to do this. Labeling a box with what types of items are in them can avoid any confusion or problems when the time comes to come back to the container and get your property. It also adds a type of organization that is essential in keeping the unit tidy and in a manner where locating items is simple.

Some choose to use large see-through boxes to pack their items. There are storage containers and boxes that are clear and allow owners to see everything inside. Purchasing them in the proper size is important. The proper size will be based on the size of the storage unit you have rented and on the size of the property. It’s necessary to find out what size container you will need to rent from the self-storage business. Many businesses have on-site managers that can help you figure out what size unit you will need for your items.

Once the size of your storage container has been decided, choosing the right size boxes and containers for your items should be easier. Many of them have their dimensions listed on the outside. You can test out your items in different sized boxes and containers to figure out which will work best. Packing everything carefully and tightly without sacrificing space is the best way to go to utilise your container.

Is the American Self Storage Boom coming to the UK?

It’s a fact that self storage is on the rise in the UK. This was a boom that started over in the U.S., and now it’s on its way overseas to the UK. Here are a few reasons why self-storage is a great approach for new business startups.

Business Startups and Self-Storage

You can store just about anything in a self-storage unit, and people are doing just that. But one use for self-storage units that many don’t think of is for business startups. For example, it’s likely that if you’re trying to sell thousands of shoes on the Internet and need some place to store them all, you’re basement isn’t going to cut it.

Not only is it often the case that you aren’t going to have the proper space for something like this, it’s also often true that it’s just not a good idea since it helps to keep your home life and business life separate.

While it’s true you could get a warehouse, these are often extremely expensive to rent out, and they also are often entirely unnecessary for small businesses. You can use self-storage units instead as a way to store and organize any inventory you might have from your business.

eBay Traders

eBay Traders often need a place to store all of the materials they sell. Your house may not have the security you want in order to store all of your stock and you probably don't want to turn your house into a target for thieves because they notice that you’ve been stocking up hundreds of boxes in your porch.

With Storage Space from just £16.99 per week for a 150 sq ft container, Boylin's Self Store offer a secure, affordable solution to storage. Call 01226 321 800 for more information and to gain instant access to a container today. We have easily accessible locations around Yorkshire:

Document Archiving: Have You Considered Self-Storage?

We currently live in a digital age. Since most things are done using computers, the use of paper is on the decline and archiving electronic files is as easy as pressing a save button. However, there are numerous scenarios where you may have to archive actual paper documents. Files which predate the digital era are only available on paper. In some cases, you may even have to have physical copies of important documents to meet legal regulations.

Efficient archival of such documents is important because their loss could have serious ramifications. Self-storage provides a wide range of archival options and has numerous benefits as well. Here is a look at some of them:

Storage Costs

You may be thinking that self-storage is an expensive option. However, you are getting considerable return on investment in terms of office space. In London, office space could cost as much £100 per square foot, depending on your location. This, coupled with service charges and other costs, makes office space in the city extremely expensive. By choosing a self-storage facility for your filing needs, you will be able to use your costly office space for other more productive purposes. Our Self Storage Locations have dry storage space available from just £16.99 per week for a 150sq ft container.

Document Protection

Documents are safer in a place that is not frequented by people – which is not the situation in your office. Moreover, your office is also susceptible to water damage, fire and human errors. A self-storage facility is highly secure and not open to the elements. By choosing a location that offers guaranteed dry-storage, you can rest assured knowing that your important documents are protected from water damage.

Increased Productivity

Archiving documents can be a long and arduous process. Even if you have hired third-party to do the archival for you, your office space is still being used to store the documents and you are still lending your valuable time to the project. A better option would be to store the files at an off-site self-storage facility and providing the archiving company access to it. We are able to offer advice on the efficient storage of files within the self-storage unit, allowing you to save time, space and minimise disruptions.

At first glance, using a self-storage service for document archival may not seem like a great idea. But when you look at it closely, self-storage provides numerous benefits which may to too good to pass up.
