uStore-it Self-Storage Tips

During the pandemic, you may have neglected your self-storage unit. Alternatively, it may have been a time of reflection, allowing you a moment to tidy up your house or apartment. Either way, this is where self-storage tips can come in handy.

Make a List and Label Boxes

It’s the most obvious one, but sometimes easily forgotten. By making a list of what you’re putting into storage, you can stay organised. As for labelling boxes, you’ll be thankful in the long-run when it comes to unpacking or searching for something in particular.

Keep your Belongings Clean

This is even more so in this day and age. However, it’s not just to stop the spread of a potential virus and infections. By ensuring items aren’t damp, covered in dirt or still dusty they’re less likely to go mouldy or damaged by termites. Why not take this time of year for an old-fashioned Spring Clean.

Use Air-Tight Containers

It’s another way of keeping the damp out and such. Plus, when it comes to clothing, it’s amazing how much space vacuum packs can save you in the long run!

Bring Someone to Help

Ok, it may be obvious when it comes to shifting heavy furniture but what if you’re literally just picking up one or two boxes? Well, you never know what’s in the way and on your own, a simple task can soon become frustrating. Plus, the company will do you good.

Wash Your Hands

The last of our storage tips for this week are about personal hygiene. We should all know by now, washing your hands helps reduce the spread of Covid-19. As such it’s a good tip to leave some hand gel in your self-storage unit. It’s just one less thing to worry about, put it near the entrance to your unit and it’s there as and when needed.
