Storage in a nano-sized flat is one of the great challenges to most families in Hong Kong. Leasing a self-storage unit obviously is an ideal solution to those living there.
How to fully utilize the available space inside the self-storage unit? Here are 7 tips suggested by Hongkong Storage for those who are new to self-storage as below:-
Make a List
Write down all you stored objects in a detailed list. You will find it helps you a lot once you need to search your favorite books or tees among those boxes. This is the most important step!
Put a Label on Each Box
This is made also for ‘Future (forgetful) you’ – who would unlikely remember what are stored inside the boxes today. It is a good practice to label the boxes clearly. You may also take photos as well.
Use Space inside the Boxes Wisely
Fill up each box as much as possible. Stack up your boxes wisely and carefully, so the boxes won’t be fallen inside the self-storage unit accidentally.
Balance the Weight of Containers
Choose smaller boxes to store your heavy things such as books, DVDs, CDs, etc, and larger boxes for lighter items.
If You Want to Stack up Boxes…
It would be easier to stack the containers in similar size.
No More Broken Items
To wrap the fragile items in protective fabrics or papers. E.g. dishes, wine glass. You may stuff more papers inside the box for better cushioning.
How to Store Furniture and Mattresses?
You may try dissembling all of your large furniture and then pack all parts well. Otherwise, store the furniture and mattresses vertically inside the unit to save space.
