Tips for Packing a Storage Room

A little forward planning is all it takes to make the experience of moving, packing and storing your belongings as easy and stress-free as possible! Here are some top tips from our experts on how to pack, avoiding common mistakes and getting the most from your storage room:

  1. Make sure you can easily access your belongings
    Categorise your belongings into groups. For example, are there certain items you will need to access or use regularly? If so, store them where you can easily get to them, on top of other items and towards the front of the unit.
  2. Keep your fragile items safe
    Always use boxes to pack your belongings, rather than relying on plastic bags. Boxes are stronger, easier to label, and much easier to stack and place in categories.  Also, items enclosed in plastic bags can become humid and even attract mildew, causing irreparable damage. Make sure you pack heavier, sturdier items at the bottom of stacked items. Pack any breakables or precious items in boxes, protected with bubble wrap on top of heavier, more unbreakable items. If you have items that don’t fit into a protective box because of their size or shape, consider where in the room you can store them.
  3. Get value for money
    Make sure you choose the right size of storage room for your needs rather than wasting money on a room that is too big. Our friendly, experienced team at Storage World will help you make the best value choice for you. Make sure you make the most of your storage room, what boxes can you store on top of others? Consider the packaging you use for your more fragile items. Filling up boxes completely will not only make the most of the space, but it also makes them stronger when stacked, avoiding breakages and damages.

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.
