Tips for organising your self-storage unit

Follow these handy tips to make the most of your storage at Ballarat Advanced Self Storage: 

  • Make a list/inventory of your items you are storing
  • Consider how often you will access your unit – this determines how you should pack the storage space. Keep items you will need to regularly access near the front of your unit!
  • Forget the flimsy ‘hand me down’ boxes – use sturdy boxes which can be stacked (maximise your space)
  • Close and seal your cartons to protect your belongings from dust
  • Label a side or an end of the carton so you can easily read – regardless of how they are stored in your unit
  • Clearly mark FRAGILE boxes
  • Place heavy boxes at the bottom of each stack
  • Leave an aisle/space between rows of goods to allow easy access to your belongings
  • Dismantle furniture – you will save space in your unit. Store bolts/nuts/screws in a labelled zip-lock bag and tape it to the item
  • Utilise spaces inside cupboards/wardrobes
  • Place a wedge in fridge/freezer doors to stop mildew
