Are you looking to move home? Have too many belongings clogged up your property? Temporary storage is a great way to help you keep your belongings safe and secure. However, before you start adding yours in randomly, it is essential that they are prepared for storage.
Not sure where to begin? We have taken a closer look at some of the best tips to help you:
- Research restrictions
The first thing that you should do is research what can and cannot be stored in your chosen storage unit. Some facilities will have a range of restricted items, while others, such as our facilities here at OneRelo Worldwide, offer climate-controlled storage.
- Create an inventory
Once you have found the perfect research facility, your next step is to create a comprehensive inventory of everything that you are putting into storage.
- Label your boxes clearly
Moving home can be chaotic, and the last thing that you want to do is to search through boxes to find what you need. Labeling your boxes clearly will ensure you can quickly locate everything.
- Protect your items
Before placing your items in storage containers, you should ensure that your items are protected from dust, moisture, and mold.
- Disassemble large items
Before placing large items such as beds, tables, or wardrobes, you should ensure that they are dissembled. This will not only save space but also help you keep them protected.
