Renting out a storage facility is a very good idea if you have excess belongings that do not fit in your current or new home but you do not want to throw them away. If you are thinking of making use of the services of a storage facility it is important that you know what you are doing, both to reduce the cost of the facility and to make sure that your goods are stored in a safe and secure manner.
One good tip is to make sure that you pack any heavy items into smaller boxes in order to make them easier to move, while all boxes need to be labeled so that when you need to look for something, you are able to find it very easily. Some space should be left so that it is simple for you to get to the rear of the storage facility, and place items that are used on a regular basis close to the front.
Newspapers should not be used to pack any items that might be stained by the ink, while metal objects such as bikes and tools need to be wiped with a rag moistened with a few drops of machine oil to ensure that they do not rust.
Some goods can even be stored in furniture when you put them into storage, while books should be packed flat and boxes containing papers or books should be placed on pallets or skids to avoid them absorbing any moisture.
