How to pack a self storage room 

If you live in the Oldham area and are planning to move home, or are perhaps downsizing, then self storage in Oldham is for you. Below we share some self storage packing tips to make the most of the space that is available to you, while saving money at the same time. You don’t want to rent a storage unit that is too large.

Start with a list

Before placing any of your items into the storage unit, be sure to make a list of every single item. Not only will this help you to remember what you have placed into storage, but it will also be a good reference point if you need to make an insurance claim in the future.

Use a dust sheet

Before placing any of your items into storage, it’s a good idea to lay a dust sheet down to protect your belongings – even if the floor is clean. Using a white dust sheet will also make any dropped belongings that more noticeable.

Use the same size of storage box

When you use the same size of box throughout, you’ll be able to make the best use of all vertical space, and it will make stacking the boxes so much easier. Always stack your boxes from the back of the storage space, moving towards the entrance.

Stack according to weight and need

Place any large or bulky items, plus any heavy storage boxes, into the storage unit first, as they’re more stable. They will provide a strong and stable base on which to place lighter items. On the flip side, place any items that you’ll need to use on a regular basis near to the opening.

Fill those empty spaces

Finally, remember to use every bit of available space. If you have any wardrobes or a chest of drawers, then be sure to fill them with smaller items, such as linen or items of clothing.

A Quick and Easy Process

Quick and easy to reserve and simple sign up process when I arrived. I had under estimated my load size and needed more space which the guys on site quickly arranged for me. Very helpful and friendly staff. A recommended company

Same Day Move In

Fantastic experience. Needed storage quickly and the staff were on hand to help get everything sorted as fast as possible – was in the same day. They even helped to make sure I got the right size unit so I didn’t over pay – they could have sold me a far bigger one but wanted to make sure I got the best deal and was happy – that doesn’t happen very often! Well Done!

Extremely Helpful Staff

Extremely helpful staff, talked me through everything, gave me a tour of the facility, the sign up process was very straight forward, and most important excellent value for money.

Trolleys and Good Lighting

Great storage with lots of trolleys and good lighting. Lots of parking bays so it is easy to park close to the storage unit entrance. A friendly and helpful team (Anthony and Nick) that get back to you quickly by email or phone.

Business Self Storage

Can’t praise the guys enough, Tricia initially found me a unit over year ago and patiently kept me up to date on availability as I was unable to move my business as quickly as I’d hoped. All the staff are friendly and helpful. A safe and clean place to work.
