Our Guide To Safe Storage

When you need storage in Forster, you need Twin Towns Removals. There are many reasons why you might need storage. Perhaps you’re downsizing and you don’t have room for everything in your new house. Maybe you’re storing everything so you can travel or perhaps you’ve sold your old house and haven’t purchased a new one yet. No matter the reason, there are some ways to prepare your belongings for safe storage so that they are ready for you when you’re ready for them.

Consider How Much Space You’ll Need

This first thing to do is to decide how much space you’ll need. Assess the items you plan to store and get a good idea of how much room they’ll take up. That way you’re only paying for the storage you need, but you won’t find yourself short on space and have to find alternate options for some of your stuff. Our units come in several sizes so you should have no trouble finding the one that works best for you.

Make an Inventory of Your Items

This helps you remember what you’ve placed in your storage unit so that you know whether it’s stored or it’s already delivered to your new home. It also ensures that when you unload your storage unit, that you can check for anything that might be missing or lost. You can do this by listing everything or you can take pictures of the items as you place them in the unit. Either way, you’ll have something to refer back to if you are wondering where your items are.

Clean Everything

Clean furniture is much nicer to unload than dusty, musty smelling pieces. Likewise, it’s easier to unload clean decor and artwork than dusty and dirty things. Vacuum rugs and furniture before storing them and dust or wipe everything else. That way when you’re ready for it in your new home, it’s already clean and ready to go.

Label Everything

Even if you only plan to store your items for a short time, it’s easy to forget what’s in which box. That’s why you need to label it all carefully. Write on the outside of the box what it contains so that it’s easy to find what you need and decide where you want it delivered once you’re ready for it in your home. You might also consider using clear bins instead of boxes so you can see what’s inside with just a glance.
