Safe Self Storage

How to stay safe when storing

It is easy to take risks when storing all of your belongings in one small space. Whether through lack of time, poor planning or the sheer amount of items being stored, safety can easily be put at the bottom of the priority list or entirely forgotten about when it comes to Self Storage. At Storage World.com we want the best storage experience for every customer, so before you start using the self storage facility, it is worth thinking ahead.

Choose the right room size

Before you begin the storage process, think realistically about the room size you need to hold all of your items. There is little point in choosing a room that is too small for your needs and cramming too much in when space becomes tight. Be realistic about the space that you need to avoid things getting out of control.

Use the right storage boxes

Make sure you choose small boxes to pack heavy items, like books and large boxes for light items like pillows. This will make the process of lifting and carrying boxes easier and safer. Don’t overload your storage boxes, as this can result in unstable stacks of boxes and objects falling out or being crushed.

Mark the stacking direction

When storing items inside boxes, it is possible to forget which way up the box should be stored. With heavy or breakable objects, this can become even more of a hazard if the box has not been adequately sealed with packing tape. To avoid any nasty accidents, make sure you mark the stacking direction of all your boxes by drawing a simple arrow on the side of each box.

Use a folding step stool

We often try to cut corners by attempting to reach up to the highest storage box, but to be on the safe side, it is best to use a folding step stool to avoid any boxes toppling over. If you want to avoid stepping up and down repeatedly, make sure that you have labelled each box and created a map so that you know where every item is in the room.

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, 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% 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.
