In some cases, it doesn’t matter how you pack your storage unit. For instance, if you only need to store a few boxes or one or two pieces of furniture, you most likely won’t need help.
However, it is worth your while to put a bit of thought and planning into packing your Durban storage unit when you have many different items that you plan to store.
FIND OUT ABOUT THE RULES
The storage provider will have rules in place about what can or cannot be stored.
In general, perishable, hazardous, flammable, or live items (plants and animals) cannot be stored in a self-storage unit with free removals Durban.
PACK YOUR LARGE ITEMS FIRST
The bulkiest and largest items should be stored at the back. Strong, solid valuables such as sturdy furniture, can be used as a base to stack other lighter items.
LEAVE A GAP DOWN THE MIDDLE
When you organise the inside of a storage unit, make sure you have left a gap wide enough so that you can walk through. This ensures easy access close to the back when needed.
STACK ANY ITEM THAT CAN HANDLE IT
Sturdy plastic chairs or boxes are some of the examples of the things you can stack without risking any damages. Stacking items provides a way to use the headspace in the unit, up to the ceiling when necessary.
KEEP ITEMS THAT YOU USE FREQUENTLY CLOSE TO THE FRONT
If there are any items that you know you will be coming back for shortly, make sure they are stored close to the front for easy access.
FILL GAPS AND SPACES
Any spaces inside drawers, cupboards, or under tables can be used to store small boxes or items.
