Things To Consider When Using Self Storage

When arranging self storage there are a number of things to consider to ensure you get the best experience. If you need long-term storage for example, having sufficient space to allow airflow helps keep items dry and mould-free. You should also make sure that goods going into storage are cleaned and dried before they are stowed. Covering soft furnishings can protect them from marks and dust. Stacking heavy boxes and other items at floor level avoids damaging more fragile items and is advisable for health and safety. Finally, be mindful of accessibility and make sure items that will be needed first are easily reachable when the time comes.
