Storage Tip #1: Mark the outside of your boxes with what they contain
Mark every side so that no matter how they are stacked you can still see at least one side of the box.
Storage Tip #2: Use pallets to raise items off the floor
This allows air to freely circulate around your items preventing mildew.
Storage Tip #3: Put heavier boxes on the bottom
This will prevent stacks of boxes collapsing & makes stacking them much easier.
Storage Tip #4: Use shelving
Storing smaller items on shelves makes them easier to retrieve. Shelving also makes good use of your vertical space.
Storage Tip #5: Leave room to move through your storage unit
When stacking your items, ensure you leave gangways between the stacks to allow for easy access.
Storage Tip #6: Never store anything flammable or combustible
This includes petrol, diesel, oil, cleaning fluids, paint or paint thinners.
