Planning Storage

How a little storage planning really helps

When preparing for a holiday, some people pack their case as if it’s a military exercise; others throw stuff in, jump on it and force closure! We find the same can happen with the people who use our storage facility. So, without actually getting into uniform and making you do twenty press-ups, we thought the following might prove useful to you in making the most of your available space.

Eight questions to ask when preparing…

  • Have you invested in quality boxes and materials? They do offer better protection for your treasured or valuable items
  • Is each box as full as possible? Partially-filled boxes can collapse and cause damage to the contents
  • Do you consider the weight of each box? Heavier items in smaller boxes help prevent that unwished – for hernia!
  • Have you labelled? You wouldn’t believe the number of people who are confident in their memory – until it’s too late to check
  • Have you used “care” reminders? For your own future benefit, it’s wise to mark “fragile” or “keep this way up” where necessary
  • Are your clothes “wardrobe-stored”? We can provide wardrobe boxes to help keep your fashion items in prime condition. Vacuum-storage is another useful option with clothing
  • Are you disassembling the unwieldy? To make best use of the valuable space, it’s often best to break down awkwardly-shaped items into their component parts
    Did you use bubble wrap? Not just for your precious stuff stored inside boxes, but also to protect expensive items of furniture and the like from those inevitable knocks

    Five quick keys to follow when storing…

  1. Create a floor plan as you store – so you always know where to find what you later need
  2. Provide a good base to your stacks with heaviest and bulkiest items at floor level
  3. Stack right up to ceiling level – do make maximum use of the available space
  4. Plan to keep those items you might need to retrieve the soonest closest to the door
  5. If you can, leave a walk-space to help you on future visits

Secure Storage Solutions

Clean, safe and secure storage solution at an affordable price, highly recommend this place, very close to the heart of manchester, easy access in and out. Big thanks to Tricia and her team for sorting out my storage needs, very knowledgeable, professional and more importantly friendly.
Highly recommended.

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.

100% Recommended

100% recommend Storage World. The storage lockers are well priced, secure and very clean. The facility is well set up to make loading and unloading very straight forward. Jeni on the desk was so increddibly helpful and went out of her way to make sure we were well set up and happy. Thanks very much to all at Storage World and particularly Jeni!

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.
