Tips for making the most of the space in your storage container


You have made an excellent decision in choosing to rent a storage container for all the items that are cluttering your Barnsley home. You obviously want to make the most of it – if you can get all your items in there you will not need to hire a second one. When it comes to personal storage containers there are certain things you can do to make sure that you don’t waste space. The first thing you should do is buy sturdy boxes to pack your items in. When they are in boxes they take up much less space than if you just throw them into your personal storage container.

Pack like items together and label every box. This way it becomes easier to retrieve items. When it comes to placing the boxes inside the container you should stack them with the labels facing outwards so that you can know where everything is. If you will be putting away furniture such as tables you should have boxes on and under them. You should dismantle any furniture that can come apart and if the pieces can fit in boxes put them there. Make sure that you don’t stack boxes too high – they can all come down and inure you.

The one thing that people forget when arranging storage containers is to leave space on all four sides so that they can move around. If you don’t do this then every time you need to retrieve an item you will have to remove all the boxes until you can get to the one you want. This is simply tedious.

If you have a lot of boxes you may need to stack boxes high. You can make the whole thing more stable by placing boards across each layer of boxes. Stack boxes like a pyramid rather than a square for more stability.

One of the best places to rent a container from is Boylin’s Self Store. Their containers come in different sizes so you can choose the one that will take care of your needs. In addition to that all containers are on ground level – you can drive right up to yours. They also have weatherproof containers so you don’t have to worry about anything you have stored getting ruined. Their rates are very affordable – you pay only £16.99 to rent a 150 square foot container for a week. You can find out more on their website, http://www.boylinsselfstore.co.uk/selfStorage/
