How To Make The Most Of Your Storage Container

Are you looking to maximise your storage container space? Or are thinking of getting some?

Packing a storage container may not be a very difficult task but, by putting some thought into it, you can make the most of the space in your container and even save money! Many people often believe they need a larger storage container than they actually do. This is because they aren’t using their space efficiently. That’s where the team at M54 Space Centre can help.

Label Everything

You probably remember where all your things are stored, when you first move everything in, but what about a few months from now? Will you still remember what is in each box?

Plan for the future by making sure all of your boxes have labels. It will make unpacking a lot easier and if you need to quickly find anything, it can save you heaps of time.

Create an Organised Layout

Whether or not you’re going to access your container regularly, it’s important that you plan the layout of the storage space. You can ensure your storage space stays streamlined by placing heavy items against the walls and leave paths in the middle. This is a great way to ensure you can access your boxes whenever you want.

Keep Most-Used Items at the Front

Make your life easier and ensure your container is organised by storing the items you use the most at the front of your container and those you are unlikely to need for a while, at the back. If you don’t follow a system like this, you will find yourself digging through your container to get to the ones you need.

Make Use of Vertical Space

Whether you choose to use shelving or just stack boxes on top of one another, the important thing is that you’re using more of the available space in your container. Don’t waste valuable vertical space; for example, if you have a mattress to store, place it against a wall to maximise your space.

Line the Walls with Your Belongings

Take advantage of the walls of your storage container and create aisles between different rows of boxes so that you can find anything you want with ease.

Take Your Furniture Apart

This may be the last thing you want to do, however, this will save a lot of space. Pieces of furniture, from your dresser to your wardrobe, are bulky and take up a lot of room inside your container. So, by taking it all apart, you can store more items inside your container and make it easier to access your other belongings.
