PERTH METRO’S TOP TIPS FOR SELF STORAGE
If this is the first time you will be renting a space at one of our facilities, you may find the following self storage tips useful:
- Buy good quality, strong boxes to pack your belongings in. It may be tempting to purchase the cheapest boxes you can find but cheap containers often turn out to be a false economy. When you stack them on top of each other to make best use of the available space, they can crumple, resulting in damage to the goods inside.
- Plan where you are going to put everything, before you start to fill your space. If you just bring in things and place them haphazardly around your storage unit, you will be able to fit in far less stuff than would otherwise be possible.
- Keep a record of the location of everything that you leave in your unit. The easiest way to stay on top of everything and make sure that nothing goes missing is to keep accurate records. This is especially the case with larger units where the sheer size of your storage space can make it close to impossible to retrieve anything without accurate records.
- Don’t be shy to ask for advice. We’ve been doing this a long time so we are bound to have come across the problems you are experiencing and will be glad to help.
If you organise your unit properly, you will find it can be the perfect storage solution for your belongings.
